cottage, Hämeenlinna, 11+9 persons
A former base for loggers is built in 1951. The cabin kitchen has modern equipment, but the sleeping quarters with bunk beds have still the old feel left.
The swamp surrounded pond of Rieska is 200 m from the cabin, but it is not suitable for swimming.
A good, public beach is approx. 3 km away.
Fireplace in the dining/living room, dining table, TV, convertible sofa. Toilet, shower.
4 bedrooms: Bedroom 1: 2 bunk beds, Br 2: bunk bed and a convertible sofa for two, Br 3: 2 bunk beds and a convertible sofa for two, Br 4: 2 bunkbeds and a convertible sofa for two, table.
Yard: campfire site, water well (from where water pipe to the cabin), wood-heated sauna in a separate building (the interiors renovated in 2015, water has to be fetched from main building's washroom).
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.
