Syväjärvi Holiday Cottage Mikkeli Finland

8+2 people

Lake Syväjärvi, in Suomenniemi, Mikkeli, is a small lake with clear waters that are ideal for smaller visitors to splash around in and perfect for a relaxing trip out in the rowing boat. The Syväjärvi cottage faces directly out towards its own small island, which is a great place for explorers of all ages. A special feature of the ten-person cottage is the atmospheric smoke sauna built from wood reclaimed from an old barn. The owners of the cottage can heat up the sauna for you.

The cottage has four spacious bedrooms over two floors, so it can accommodate one large family or two small families. The cottage is also great for families with children thanks to its shallow beach. There is a drying cupboard, making it easy to dry your outdoor clothes. Thanks to the excellent location, it is easy to arrange birthday parties and meetings at the cottage (1 km from Main Road 13). The living room and kitchen are a single open-plan area. The living room has a large sofa suite so guests can share time together in comfort, while the well-equipped kitchen will please even the most demanding chefs. Syväjärvi is suitable for visitors with allergies – pets cannot be brought to the cottage. For people with restricted mobility, Syväjärvi is Loma-Väkkärä's best cottage, although it does not have completely unobstructed access for wheelchairs. Syväjärvi is protected from motorboats. If you are travelling in a large party and you would like to hire a boat, we recommend our cottages on Lake Saimaa: Lokkero and Nuottakallio.

"We found a generous helping of berries – blueberries and raspberries – on our walk round Kaitajärvi."
