Have a vacation in summer!

Have a quiet holiday away from everyday life and enjoy the spacious wood-heated sauna near the beach, swim, sunbathe or sit near a campfire at the beach in the evening.

You can fish or row a boat around the lake or even make a trip to one of the rocky islands. Some of the islands are protected areas and lighting a fire is prohibited in all of the islands.

Walking trails of Seitseminen National Park offer great conditions for outdoor activities. You can pick berries and mushrooms, fish, just wander around in the beautiful nature or even make a trip to the ancient Multiharju forest.

Ikaalinen Spa and Ellivuori Ski Resort are nearby and if you don’t mind a slightly longer trip, you could even make a trip to sandy beaches of Yyteri within the day.

The main cottage is equipped with a 32″ widescreen TV, DVD/Blu-ray player, board games and books, so even the rainy days won’t get boring.

Having a vacation in our cottages is cheaper in autumn and winter!

On a sunny autumn day you could make an unforgettable trip to the nearby bog to pick cranberries or to watch the migration of cranes. Forest trips are free of mosquitoes and you could easily pick up some wild mushrooms for dinner. Fishing and boating are, of course, available also in autumn.

Visit our cottages in winter to enjoy a calm and quiet stay in middle of the beautiful snow covered nature. During the day you can ski in the ski trails of Seitseminen National Park and grill sausages in the fire pits by ski trail. In winter and early spring, skiing, skating or ice fishing on a frozen lake is also an experience. Shielded away from the cold and blizzards, you can enjoy the evenings in the warm cabin by the fireplace. The Christmas and the New Year holidays at the cabin are both unforgettable experiences.
