Accommodation and activities!
Äksyt Ämmät - Guesthouse Pihlajapuu is situated in the Eastern part of Finland called North Karelia. The traditional log house used to be a village school but has now been lovingly renovated for it’s new purpose, welcoming international visitors. We have ten bedrooms, seven rooms upstairs and three rooms downstairs, and can accommodate up to fifteen persons. There are lounges and balconies as well as a Finnish sauna heated with a log fire. Our kitchen provides fresh local food. The small town of Nurmes lies about 20 km away from the guesthouse.
Pihlajapuu is hosting holidays and tours around the year. We are literally in the middle of the woods where you can pick berries and mushrooms in the autumn. We also cook marmalade from berries. In winter there is plenty of snow with cross-country tracks straight from the door. The fireplaces and radiators keep the whole house warm and cozy, even in the most frosty weather. Read more
