We enjoyed our stay at Rantamökki. A very special experience. The lake was frozen and we went ice fishing with good results. Fish for entree!!! We walked in the snow and around the lake. The scenery is beautiful. Our hosts Jaacko and Maaret were very kind. They brought us sweet strawberries.

We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Lapland. Finland Cottage Rentals have been very attentive with answering our many emails and even arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport with our cabin keys so we did’nt have to stop by the office first. Cannot fault our experience at all with this company. The cottage was very spacious, warm, clean and comfortable. The living room enjoyed a very tranquil view of snow and trees. And sometimes a red squirrel! The cottage is located about 2 kms from Saariselka which was quite nice as it was very quiet. We found several different paths for walking into Saariselka, one of which passes a husky farm which was really nice. We also used the ski bus several times to get to and from Saariselka village but be warned, the bus only stops at the cabin bus stop twice a day. We have been husky sledding, have enjoyed an evening reindeer ride looking for the northern lights and have also been snowmobilling in the evening. We have been blessed with seeing the northern lights 3 times during our stay (1 week). We have 2 children aged 10 and 7 years and they had the time of their lives on the toboggan run (almost 2 km). We would definately recommend booking with Finland Cottage Rentals, would definately recommend Tunturituuli B to family and friends and we will definately be back again!

I would just like to give you a short feedback about our wonderful stay in Finland. We just came back yesterday and already want to go back to Villa Anna. The cottage was amazing, that is basically the only thing I can say. We had such a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing and amazing time, it was definitely not the last time we went there. Annu, the owner was very friendly, helpful and explained a lot about Finland and the traditions like sauna, ice fishing and the nature. The cottages there are high class, perfectly maintained and decorated with such a attention to detail that you can just  love it. I can also only recommend contacting you, the way of communication and support was easy, reliable, exactly what I was looking for. The information after the booking about the National Park, the cottage, the driving directions was very help and useful, everything in one email, short and precise, exactly what we needed. Well done. Everything was perfect. I hope to be back soon, I will contact you for sure.

Our experience at the cottage has been wonderful, we have enjoyed a lot there and those days have been really great. We had some problems to find out our cottage because we got to the cottage late at night and it was a bit difficult to find Lakeside Fox cabin. The cottage is very confortable and clean and the surroundings are awesome. After a long day driving from Helsinki to Kesalahti we had a very good rest in the cottage. The following day just after breakfast we enjoyed walking through the lake and the surroundings and playing with the sleigh. The sauna is also very recommended. I just want to comment that there were no matches or anything to fire the fireplace, so the first night we couldn’t use it. It has been a very good experience, hopping to repeat another day!

We are glad to say, that we liked our cottage. Despite the cold outside there was very warm and cozy in the cottage. Cottage location is very convenient for mountain skiers but we didn’t find cross-country ski tracks not far from the cottage as promised in the description. So we drove to ski to Muurame. We were pleased to find descriptions and instructions for cottage equipment even in Russian but unfortunately there were no firewood for the fireplace in the cottage (we read that we can use the wood in the house for free). And at last some of us find that the mattresses on the beds were too soft, but I think that it’s a matter of taste. Anyway we enjoy our holidays in Finland and hope to continue to spend our vacations here. We’ll recommend this place for ski to our friends too.

We were very happy with our New Year break in Juolukka. The cottage itself was very comfortable, we completely relaxed and loved the remote location. We are definitely thinking about returning next year.

We had a wonderful winter week at Maja Aurora! The cottage is warm and cozy and was perfect for our family of five despite the extreme cold outside. The kitchen has everything one would need to cook, and the large dining table allowed us to dine together. There is ample seating and sleeping space, and the sauna was perfect after a day in the cold. The location right on the lake was perfect for viewing the northern lights, and we were fortunate enough to get several great shows during our stay. The cottage is a short walk (or kicksled journey) from the village of Kilpisjärvi, and there are guided local winter activities available in town. Finland Cottage Rentals made finding and booking easy, and customer service was great. We would definitely book with Finland Cottage Rentals again.
