The space
ATTENTION: We are not able to update airbnb on a daily basis so please note that availability might not always be up-to-date.

The 255 m2 large main building at Ruuhijärvi was built originally around 1920 as a base for forest workers, for lumberjacks and woodcutters. Back in the old days Ruuhijärvi forest manor was the only home for many lumberjacks - and their co-workers were their only family. The forest cabins at the Evo Nature and hiking area became unused during the 60’s, but woke up into new life during 90’s. After that Ruuhijärvi Lake´s buildings have been renovated and modernized several times.

Here lived those hard working men and women who built the Finnish welfare society.

Ruuhijärvi surroundings include the old times yard area, the lake, the large main building, two wood heated saunas, which together generate an uncomplicated, easy going old fashion and peaceful spirit, but anyway with the modern facilities and comforts. Organize easy going meetings, holidays, enjoyable parties or family gatherings in peaceful surroundings combined with forest and lake, but still with modern facilities and close to city activities.

Two traditional wood-heated saunas are located just in the shoreline of lake Ruuhijärvi, only for you. Enjoy yourself or pamper your customers, friends or family.
