|Additional information:|| The Forest Manor was built by botanist Alfred Oswald Kihlman in 1885. It was the main building on his 6.500 hectare forest property. Kihlman was a senator, a highly esteemed scientist, and an explorer, (e.g. of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kola_Peninsula). His legacy can still be seen in Lakomäki. He planted Abies alba, a fir tree that has cones which grow upwards.
Lakomäki was a base for logging companies for almost a hundred years. Hundreds of men with horses worked in the forests making it one of the biggest logging areas in Finland.
Now the Forest Manor, built of logs, offers a warm and cozy place to stay for tourists. |
