On the shore of Lake Särkijärvi, in the embrace of the fells, it is good for a vacationer to rest. Sits in the fells on the stump or on a rock. Stand on the slope of the fell with snowshoes to look at the scenery. After the nature trip, sit down on the sauna’s bench to stir up the steam. Take a dip in the soothing waters of Lake Särkijärvi – in any of the eight seasons.
And of course, enjoy your own trails in all eight seasons.
That’s why it’s important for us to act responsibly and make our business sustainable both from the point of view of nature as well as socially and economically.
People come to us because the nature around us is wonderful. It is the most important basis of our activities. Without taking care of nature, we wouldn’t have all the eight seasons mentioned below.
Departure of Ice
Staying in the middle of nature is nice!
In order to make the accommodation also responsible, we have chosen a renewable form of energy for heating already 20 years ago, i.e. we heat with wood chips. For the interior, we have chosen materials that are resistant to time and washing.

Our accommodations are designed to be accessible. When you notify us in advance of the need, we will also deliver a ramp to the entrance. The shower and toilet facilities are accessible.

Snacks from the nearby
