Peace, tranquillity and comfort
Even better than the pictures suggest. The cottage is very remote but easy to find with a decent sat nav. Even though we stayed during a cold spell in June, the cottage is perfectly comfortable. The lake is beautiful to look at but we weren't able to get on it due to the weather. What is really nice is that this is someone's cottage and feels like home rather than a sterile holiday rental. Mikko is very helpful and just a call away if any troubles. As there were only 2 of us, we didn't use the upstairs bedroom. The stairs are steep and the headroom low. All in all, a perfect holiday rental and highly recommended. Just take plenty of mosquito spray as Finnish mozzies are very aggressive
Thank you for your visit and your feedback. The weather has been a bit extraordinary in the spring. May was warm. The average temperature was 22 C (up to 27 C). The beginning of June when you visited Anna- Cottage was a little cool. Average temperature 16 ° C (min 9 ° C). Annoyance. Is the atmosphere changing? You are warmly welcome again! Regards, Mikko
Very comfortable and thoughtfully appointed cabin in an idyllic location
We spent several days at this wonderful property and loved every minute of it! The location is very beautiful, on a peaceful and quiet lake, with a kayak and rowboat available for our use - we spent a lot of time on the water or just sitting on the dock enjoying the view. We also appreciated the fantastic sauna and loved alternating between the heat and dips in the cold lake. My daughter used one of the bikes for exploring the area and we found a lovely little chapel in the woods, which was a highlight along with all the wildflowers and wild berries. The grill was nice for barbecuing, and there is great shopping for groceries and other items about 15 minutes away. The cabin had all the amenities we needed to be comfortable and was very clean. Would be a great location to bring younger children - there's a sandbox with toys, a trampoline, etc. Mikko was thoughtful and communicated clearly leading up to our stay. Highly recommend and look forward to visiting again!
I was glad you visited Anna-cottage. Everything went perfectly on our behalf. It was a pleasure to hear that you enjoy your stay in an ecological cabin, a lakeside sauna and lakeshore. Hope to see you soon. Everything good for you all!
