Activities & us

- 200 years of history and country life -

We love to live here. There are plenty of things to do and fresh air to breath. At times it is quite busy but then there are moments to sit down, listen to the birds singing and let the thoughts come and go. You are welcome to visit us and enjoy the beauty of our place. Underneath we tell more about us and about things that you can do here.

Sauna

Get the Finnish style sauna experience and enjoy the good heat of our lakeside sauna that our father has built over 40 years ago. If you feel like cooling off after the bath, the sauna has direct access to the lake where you can enjoy a refreshing swim.

This sauna experience from 25 eur/h.

Open fire

For our guests' disposal there is a Lapland style hut for open fire and barbeque.

We can do a pancake dough or arrange pancake party for you for an extra cost.

Forests and village roads

Walk through the magical forest and along winding village roads. Find your own way or walk along our private nature trail. Pick fresh berries and mushroom. Look at the beauty of the plants' work of art, listen to the sound of wind and smell the fresh forest.

Isojärvi National Park

Isojärvi National Park is close by and is a beautiful and popular day trip destination. There you may see even a beaver!

Local excursions

Do an excursion to one of huts and fire places Kuhmoinen has. In snowy winter you can even make a skiing trip and stop by a hut to fry sausages. Fire places are accessible by foot and some places also by car. Historical Linnavuori has stunning views from top of the hill and is worth a trip, too.

Mountain biking

Kuhmoinen mountain biking trail is starting in 4 kms from us. If you have a mountain bike check this trail. Also walking is allowed on this trail. Another beautiful MTB trail is the Isojärvi National Park mountain biking trail.

Lake Päijänne

Lake Päijänne is close to our place. In summer visit the harbor, take a cruise or make a trip to Päijänne National Park. In winter when the ice is thick enough, it is a perfect place to get some fresh air, only one kilometer away from us.

Baking together

We love to bake and this tradition has moved over from granma to my mom and now to me. Let's bake Finnish buns using my mom's recipe and get the authentic experience of our life. This is exclusively for guests staying in Loma-Pälsilä cottage. If interested, ask more! An extra cost.

Surroundings

Our favourites! Dip your toes in warm lake water. Enjoy the surroundings, cranes singing in the early morning, mist behind the hay barn on the fields and sound of little waves when angling on the pier.

Our story

Many generations have been walking on the same tracks during the last centuries. Each of the generation has left its sign in the history of the farm. 

In the 90's my parents became aware of the possibilities that the beautiful setting and the excellent location close to main roads had and they began to build tourism beside farming. My dad renovated traditional farm buildings for their new usage serving as accommodation for guests looking for unique experience of old days. As a skilled builder my dad also constructed new log cottages for accommodation. He also planned and built the large lakeside cottage by lifting up a log at a time. The hut was built for guests to enjoy open fire and guests enjoyed the sauna bath in the lakeside sauna.

I spent my childhood here surrounded by the pets and happy activities. My roots grew deep in this ground. Studies and jobs took me to the cities and abroad but I always knew that one day I will return. Now the farm has shifted to the fourth generation of the family and it is my time to continue the story of the place. With the same enthusiasm, perseverance and energy as already for the last two centuries. Honoring the old and getting inspired by the new. Sustainability and respecting the environment being of high importance to us.
