“Enjoy Finnish nature in peace and quiet with comfort”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Metsäkartano is located in eastern Finland, in the middle of lakes and forests. As I celebrated my friend's wedding there a few weeks ago in the middle of May, I could also enjoy the peace and quiet at the same time.

With wooden buildings and beautiful surroundings, Metsäkartano is an ideal place for a theme wedding or other celebration, for a group travel or just for relaxing time with someone - or even alone. Big cabins, basic "wilderness hotel" rooms with shower and also a camping site are available. Rooms have a common living room area with a tv and a kitchenette. Breakfast with local treats (including for example Karelian pies) is available in the main building, as well as other meals depending on the service package bought.

I recommend this place for people who want to spend time in the Finnish nature with some comfort. I would imagine this place offers something special for foreign visitors!

It takes a while to get there, but its worth every minute! This center is placed on a beautiful spot: a big lake, forrets everywhere an a lot of activities to choose from. My house had an own kitchen, nice living room with sea view and even a private wooden heated sauna!

The food, served in the main building, was delicious. I recharged my batteries during walking though the woods, sitting at the lake or meeting other people. I really enjoyed every minute of my, much too short stay.

I will defenitly come back! Thanks a lot for everything!
