The road goes next to the lake and there are beautiful views on the way. You need to go through some other island before arriving to the cottage. Mikonsaari Island is 100 hectare and it is an important recreation area; there you can enjoy nature and quietness. From the island it’s possible to see the harbour of the nearby city and the boats that are passing by.

Customers can explore the water area around the islands by rowing boat. In autumn the autumn colours make an unforgettable view that reflects on the surface of the water. During rainy days the warmth of the fireplace and the sauna will make everything feel better. The Mikonsaari Island is known for its good terrain of mushrooms, so mushroom and berry picking is a good way to spend your day. In wintertime it’s good to ski and take a tour on the sledge on the ice. The best way to enjoy your picnic lunch both in summer and winter is in front of the campfire. Come and experience it by yourself!
