Rieska was built after the war, in 1951, as a base for loggers and horsemen. At its peak, there were 30 loggers and 10 horsemen staying over at the same time. On the yard there is still the old dining building (can not be used). The cabin is suitable for large, outdoor-minded groups who want to experience the peaceful forest nature. Note! In the cabin can be noticeable a stuffy odor of the old building in the autumn time, as the temperature drops and the humidity rises in rainy weather. As there is no mechanical ventilation in the cabin, the intermediate doors and ventilation valves in the cabin must be kept open and the air source heat pump on at all times in order to have adequate ventilation. The cabin is located in the Southeast corner of the Evo recreational hiking area. The hiking area paths do not reach the cabin, but Rieska is a wonderful spot from where proper hikes on the Ilves -hiking trail to the forests and ponds of Evo can be conducted. You can plan various activities with your stay: fishing in Lake Niemisjärvet, hiking, cross-country skiing in unbeaten snow or just relaxing in the peaceful surroundings of the cabin while bathing in the sauna and telling stories around the camp fire. Accessible by car in summer and winter. Rental starts at 14:00 on arrival day and ends at 12:00 on departure day.

    Ihana paikka omassa rauhassa. Kävelyreitit mökiltä vähäiset, mutta suht lähelltä löytyy ajomatkan päästä monia reittejä. Tilaa riittää ja sauna ihanan tunnelmallinen.

  • Esa K, Lokakuu 2022

    Rauhallinen sijainti, keskellä hyviä metsästysmaita.

  • Anne G, Elokuu 2022

    Kiva, viihtyisä ja rauhallinen paikka. Tilaa riitti useammallekin henkilölle. Saunassa sai hyvät löylyt.
