This is actually an old farmhouse turned cottage and there’s lots of space. It’s isolated and a little off the grid (about half an hour from town), but it is functional. This rental is for guests who want to be immersed in nature and who don’t mind not having internet. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a full kitchen, dining space, parking, and lots of outdoor space.
In fact, you can find plenty to do right on the grounds, including fishing, walking, going out on the lake in the provided rowboat and even picking wild berries (including cloudberries, a berry native to Finland that look like tiny, golden clouds).
