This is the only cottage on a 600 m scenic cape. It is located near a nature reserve with hundreds of islands, which you can reach by boat or by skiing. In the autumn, there are lots of berries and mushrooms around the villa and on the islands. It is ideal for nature trekking in all seasons. Rowing boat is included in the rent. An outboard motor for rent by 80 Euro per week. Rubber boat for children. Sport ground and sport equipment for instance football, badminton, basket ball, table tennis, darts, boxing punch bag with gloves, swing, petanque, and croquet.

If you don't need the guest house, there will be no others either.

The lake: Lake Suontee (or Suonne) is over 30 km in length. The water is pure and crystal clear. The villa is situated by the southern part of Suontee, which is one of the most important areas of lake nature protection in Finland.

Magnificent Cottage and Grounds in Finnish Nature

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights at Akseli Cottage October 1, 2010. The home is spacious, fully equipped for the handicapped and beautifully decorated with all modern conveniences. Great kitchen. From the living room/dining area, one looks out at an unobstructed view of pristine lake and forest. Lovely walk down to private landing and beach front.

It was a great retreat for two. We took day trips from the cottage. Also took the rowboat out on the lake. The cottage is really a compound of a few buildings with an amazing soccer field and large area for children to play, so it would also be ideal for larger families or grandparents, kids and grandchildren. I highly recommend this secluded, yet modern and well furnished cottage.

5 stars out of 5

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding accommodations: nicely built and very comfortable 3-bedroom log cabin equipped with the modern appliances (last model washer, dryer, refrigerator, dish-washer, 2 flat-screen LCD TVs with satellite reception, air conditioner units) and 21st century technology such as wireless door looks, remote sensing electric switches, handless faucets, etc); detached sauna with living room and bathroom with 2 showers; sophisticated covered grill; swimming/fishing/boat deck; covered car-port for 2 cars that also accommodates a fantastic ping-pong table, small football field with 2 goals, badminton net, basketball board.

2. Great outdoor surroundings: gorgeous virgin forest with plentiful wild berries and mushrooms, beautiful lake with clear water; very quite remote location with no neighbors within half a kilometer. Perfect place for outdoor oriented people.

It was a dream vacation – 5 stars out of 5.
