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.

Our stay was wonderful, thank you and cottage owner!
The house was very comfy and clean, nature is great, vacation too short 🙂

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.

Super experience with Finland, with Lapland, with finlandcottagerentals.com, with cottage Pyhäkirnu. Finland is a great surprise, people are nice and friendly, everything is clean and in order, services work, very very positive impression. Lapland is just marvellous, we lived in a fairy tale for one week. Pyha is very nice, but very quiet (so we loved it)… but it’s not Ibiza, so if you want to party-party not the right place. FinlandCottageRentals.com offers a great service, easy to use, pictures are many and reliable, they reply fast, I made reservation and payment for one cottage, then I asked to change (after some days) and they returned me the money so I could make a new reservation. Pyhäkirnu was perfect: located in the forest at walking distance from ski resort restaurants and shops, all new, equipped at best, big, cosy, all amenities perfectly working. We enjoyed the sauna and the big shower. We loved the fire place and the barbecue outside. Definitely we will be back. And price absolutely ok. Thanks very much to the owners for the great job. Grazie!

Thank you again for the flexibility in our booking 🙂 The cottage was just fine. The sauna was great and we had a lovely stay. The only downside was the weather within the week, but the cottage cannot be blamed for that. Only critic would be, that we had to clean some cooking pots (perhaps the last renter did not clean them properly) before we could use them. But that wasn’t a big problem.

We can’t wait to go back to this little piece of paradise!!!

We had a wonderful time at Hepolehto. The cottage was all we could wish for. Wonderful location and the peace and quiet is second to none. If you want to switch of and re-charge your batteries then this is the place to do it. Everything was very well organised and even the fact that when we arrived a storm had taken out the electricity it could not dampen the atmosphere. If anything the place was well equipped to enable us to cope with it. The surroundings are very nice too and the lake at sun down is a special place to be. The fact that we had as an extra taken the motor boat was great for getting around and seeing so much of the surroundings and even get to another lake. Going shopping in a small motor boat is something very relaxing indeed. We can only recommend this place to anybody that wants to be left in peace and get back to nature. And if you like mushrooms then step into the forest and you will be spoilt for choice.
