Looking to trade everyday stress, endless smart phone ringing and invasive e-mails for a good rest in a cozy cottage, meditative walks in the forest and romantic boat journeys below midnight sun & Aurora Borealis ? Only 25 min. away from Ivalo Airport and 45 min. from Saariselkä Ski Resort, Lovers' Lake Retreat is located on the shores of Lake Rytijärvi & within Magical Forests of Lapland. A perfect place to experience the authentic minimalist Finnish lifestyle in harmony with Nature.
“What a wonderful place. This is the kind of stay AirBnB was made for. A charming collection of small cabins, alongside the shores of a small lake. Pure bliss and isolation. We had an amazing 3 days at the property - and were blessed with beautiful weather. Clear crisp blue skies and bright sunshine. Sitting in the wood fired hot tub at night, we were lucky to see an amazing Aurora Borealis display, as well more stars than we’ve ever seen before. Expect a bit of work whilst there (4 fires take a lot of effort!). But you’ll sleep well at night as a result. As big city dwellers we really enjoyed the change in pace of life. Highly recommended - we will we back.”
Small modern ekohouse with sauna and shower. Near lake . Boat, canoe, bikes . House of host is neighbour
“Eila has a very nice place. Ideal for taking a time out, being in and with nature and peace. The sauna and fireplace are great, as well as the view of the lake from the little house- especially in the morning when the sun rises or in the evening when everything gets quite and you can watch the stars above it after a relaxing sauna. Eila is a very respectful and friendly host. She takes care of the place and makes sure everything and you are alright. Eila had all the equipment for different weather conditions and activities ready- sleighs for the frozen lake, ice scates, snow shoes etc. I particularly loved the vintage old school cross-country skis with matching shoes. Felt like back in the 80s:) we had a lot of fun. Thank you!”
We offer our lovely guesthouse with sauna and a hot tub to Helsinki area visitors who appreciate nature, privacy and maybe a round of golf- we are located right by the 12th green of Kullo Golf and 40km from Helsinki centre. The cottage is an old log building, carefully renovated to preserve its spirit while suiting the needs of a comfort lover. The cottage is being rigorously cleaned and hard surfaces disinfected between the guests for extra safety and security. No linen included until June.
“An excellently refurbished cabin, maintaining its character and providing a magical stay for us. The facilities are brilliant, the showers (x2) and the Sauna were excellent, with heated floors in the very large shower room. The entire experience was so nice, we immediately felt at home and very comfortable. A lovely touch was the photographic album of the refurbishment of the Cabin, for us, this was so interesting, to be able to see some of the works done and the effort required to create this unique and beautiful property. (Very extensive, but maintaining the all important character, this has really been done well). The surrounding countryside is so peaceful with open views. The information pack provided was excellent, containing more than enough information to enjoy our stay immediately. Very professionally run by Madara (and Jukka). We could not of asked for more ;-)”
