We went with a company of 9 people. Loved! The house has everything you need for a comfortable life, the atmosphere and nature around are peaceful. And the sauna is just top class. The perfect place to take a break from the city noise and spend a few evenings with friends. We were looking for a place to come with a dog. We didn’t regret it. Our dog also liked it, in the restaurant on the territory he was fed with goodies, it seems he felt sorry no less than the rest when we left.

Two families came here last summer. I loved it so much! Children ran around the territory in nature, played catch-up and other active games. My friend and I went fishing, and in the evening the sauna. And we managed to make a kebab, and we went to the sauna. Beauty! And how to sleep in a log house! The air is so unique. The wives also liked it, a kind of separation from the bustle of the city turned out.
