We chose to stay a night while on a road trip, and we definitely chose the right place to spend the night! This place was perfect. The rooms are clean, comfortable and cool (surprising seeing as the weather has been so warm). The farm animals are a stone’s throw away from the sleeping quarters and make for a lovely vibe to the area. The whole place is very peaceful and quaint. Breakfast was great - extremely fresh and lots of variety. Lots of local produce available. The staff are very friendly and seem happy to serve. Couldn’t recommend this place more, especially if you have kids (we didn’t, and it was still a lot of fun).
Even though we live in the countryside, this truly was a lovely visit! The breakfast was delicious and we had a good, quiet night sleep. I bet this is a hit with kids, but we enjoyed also just as a couple.
We enjoyed our stay at Hepokatti a lot. The place is located in a beautiful environment with walking trails, cultural spots and opportunities such as kayking, swimming etc. in close distance. The hosts are super friendly and make you feel welcome from the second you arrive. The breakfast is great and for the evening hours it is possible to have your own barbecue. We would recommend Hepokatti to anyone, such as families, couples or older travellers, who are searching for a friendly and relaxed place in the Finnish Lakeland
Ah, the fabulous Hepokatti. There is only one problem with this place: the kids do not want to leave! This was our second time here, and we booked this because we had such a nice experience here on our last visit in 2006. Back then, we had no kids, but we still loved this place for its authenticity and the athmosphere. Now with kids this was even a bigger hit! The kids simply loved the animals, the big courtyard, the playing area in the attic of the barn. There was also an organized treasure hunt for the kids. The room at the attic of the barn was comfortable and the bed (especially the sheets) were very comfortable. They had added toilets and showers to the room since our last visit, which made it a very good farm experience in total. Highly recommend and will most definitely return! (ps. please note that my five stars are based on expectations for a B&B in a farm, for that purpose this is about the closest to a five star experience you will get in Finland).…
We didnt sleep at the place but it would have been cozy and lovely. The place was full of friendly and warm people and cute signs and animals (especially sheep and pigs)! We will visit this place again and hopefully sleep here too. The price was small according to the quality and athmosphere of the area. Totally recommend!!!! <3
