    The Mökki was....well...why use many, maybe poetic words.....perfect... It is simple, by all means, as a good Mökki should be, it shows us how to look past what is in front of us every day, and see the greater beauty....and what a a beauty! Everything is perfectly positioned, the sunset right in front, the sweet privacy of the sauna beach ....the silence, the endless silence.

    Very nice, tranquil location. Simple and cozy cabin with excellent sauna. The very best fire pit location I have yet to see. Highly recommended!

    Ihana, omassa rauhassa oleva eräparatiisi! Upeat maisemat järven selälle rantakallioilta. Mökissä kaikki tarvittava varustus.
