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.
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.

Mukava ja rauhallinen paikka. Mökki oli siistissä kunnossa. Suosittelen!

Markku M, Maaliskuu 2019 Translate

Paikka sopi hyvin tarkoitukseemme ja mm. astioita ja ruokailuvälineitä oli runsaasti. Saunassa voisi olla ohjeet padan tyhjentämisestä tai siitä, että ei tarvitse tyhjentää.

Ruurik H, Maaliskuu 2019 Translate

Tilaa on, käytännöllinen kohde, useampi huone joten nukkumarauhaa on. Hieman kodikkaampi ja viihtyisämpi (metsätyöromantiikkaa tms.) voisi olla. Valaistus loistelamppu, tunnelmavalona sähkökynttilät vain. Kiuas liian pieni löylyhuoneen kokoon nähden.
