  • Anni V, Syyskuu 2021

    Mökki oli viihtyisällä paikalla Björkbodassa, erittäin siisti ja hyvin pidetty. Kommunikaatio omistajien kanssa oli sujuvaa ja viihdyimme erinomaisesti! Kiitos!

  • Johanna I, Elokuu 2021

    Tilava hyvä ja rauhallinen majoitus. Kaunis alue ja ympäristö. Astianpesukone helpottaisi lomailua.

  • Minna-maria W, Elokuu 2021

    Mökki oli hyvin viihtyisä ja.kauniisti sisustettu. Ruukin alueen miljöö oli myös kaunis: lähistöllä oli esim. upea kartano, järvi, hevosia ja lampaita.
