In between
two national parks

Our holiday cabins, built of environmentally friendly, cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels that absorb carbon, are located at the heart of Lake Saimaa in the village of Oravi, standing on a narrow headland between the Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Parks. The area, imbued with history, enchants not only with its location but with its coziness, too.

Our identical nine cabins, furnished with high-quality and tasteful materials, feature wall-to-ceiling windows with views towards the Oravi canal, the picturesque Lake Saimaa, and the Linnansaari National Park. The panoramic windows are perfect for letting some of the pure Finnish light in, or for admiring the clear night skies. If you’re extra lucky, you might even catch sight of some Northern Lights.

Each of our holiday cottages offers a stunning view of Lake Saimaa, which is free for anyone to swim, fish, and play in. Our bright and spacious cabins are perfect for travelers who seek quality accommodation in a natural setting.

The idyllic Oravi village and the services offered by the small community, ranging from a village shop and a restaurant to various leisure and outdoor activities, are located on the other side of the headland, just a short walk away from the resort area.
