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.

We would like to express our excitement and thank the owners Taina’s Cottage. It was one of the most comfortable holiday houses we have ever stayed! Enough room for all our family and everything in the cottage is so well thought , that we could feel as at home. The cottage is very clean, well equipped, has very comfortable beds, spacious kitchen with all of the necessary units and even a little more such a blender (it was very useful for us in the preparation of berry jam from delicious berries growing everywhere around the cottage, a little thing, but so nice!) We liked the lake, it is rich with fish and very peaceful. Every evening our family enjoyed the sunset on the lake from the cosy canopy and had a fire in a special open fireplace. The sauna with wooden stove is fantastic and the laundry room is very useful. Highly recommend this cottage and hope to return again.

Iitu-mökki oli aivan loistava, enemmän kuin mökki😀. Tosi siisti, ei tarvinnut haistella homeita niinkuin joissain aikaisemmissa vuokraamissamme mökeissä. Varustelu taso oli parempi kun “esitteestä” ymmärsimme. Voin lämpimästi suositella koska vaan kelle tahansa. Palju järven rannassa oli mahtava juttu, sitä ei toki kannata lämmittää liikaa, kuten kantapään kautta huomasimmme. Extrana vielä roskakatoksen yhteydessä kaikki tarvittavat kalastusvälineet, katiskoja myöten (kalastuslupa lähialueelle sisältyy vuokraan, kannattaa mainita mainonnassa). Kaunis järvimaisema terassilta, joka suojassa myös sateelta. Kaasugrilliä kyllä jäimme kaipaamaan laiskoina ihmisinä, grillikota sinänsä kyllä mahtava juttu. Palvelu teiltä toimi erittäin hyvin, kun esitin kysymyksiä ennen mökille menoa, vastattiin nopeasti ja tyhjentävästi.

Timo, Finland, August 2016

Tainan Tupa was fabulous. Our group of eight adults and children spent a blissful week in late August at your beautiful lakeside cottage. The charming handmade home was so comfortable and well-equipped, particularly the kitchen, and was beautifully decorated. The owners were most kind in providing additional items we requested. The children enjoyed the toys and games very much, as well as meeting the owners’ herd of sheep and their dog Vilja. The lakeside location was perfect, and we enjoyed the rowboat, canoe, bonfire location, and even swam a bit despite the water temperature getting a bit colder by this time of year. The forest walks around the villa were excellent as well. During the entire time we enjoyed perfect silence and did not see another soul at the lake. Lastly, the online reservation procedure was flawless. This has been a vacation we will not soon forget, and hope that we have the opportunity to visit again in the future.

We liked Rantatuuli Paasisalo very much. The Villa is very conveniently located in a rather isolated Island off a small and quite town where one can shop for whatever one needs whenever one needs to, but at the same time enjoy the calm and the pleasure of the rather isolated villa. The Villa is maintained in the highest standards in terms of all the appliances and we found it very clean and fit for people like us who like to feel that a place we liven is clean and well taken care of. The views and the lake provided wonderful background to the wonderful week we spent at the villa. In addition, we were able to discover Kuopio, a very special place with its famous tower restaurant that we highly recommend, the port with the lake view tours and the central city market that enjoyed very much.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Laurinranta. It was an idyllic setting right by the lake. It was so peaceful. The one thing that I would comment on is the cleanliness of the cottage. It was not as clean as we would have expected. Towels were small and not very good for drying you. A few more guide notes may be useful, especially on how to use the outboard motor on the boat. I found Finland Cottage Rentals very helpful in arranging the booking and providing us with directions to the cottage. On the whole we had a fantastic time at the lakeside location and would possibly look to book with Finland Cottage Rentals in the future, however I would be looking for better value for money next time around and may go for a smaller cottage.

Our stay in the cottage Juolukka was fantastic. We liked the area and location, very quiet and in the heart of nature. The cottage was very nice, clean and cute for 2 persons. There was everything what we needed, with equipment in the kitchen and all was arranged very cosy. We had a very nice time there, we were going for trekking, and in the relax time we baked the blueberry muffins and just looked on the lake. Very nice time, and the owners were very nice and helpful. Thank you for the great time, we would love to come back again.
