Vasikkahaka Holiday Cottage Mikkeli Finland

4+2 people

Vasikkahaka is an original cottage of the Ylä-Väkkärä farm. It was completely renovated into its present condition in 2020. The cottage is located in Suomenniemi on the shore of Lake Härkäjärvi, a small, peaceful lake, surrounded by forest groves. The cottage has a wood-burning sauna with top steam quality.

Small swimmers will enjoy the shallow waters at Vasikkahaka. The rowing boat is in constant use during the summer – there are no motorboats to be seen on Lake Härkäjärvi. Pets are welcome at Vasikkahaka – please do not forget to mention them when you make your booking. The cottage is located one kilometre from Main Road 13, making it easy to go on day trips from the cottage to various parts of Mikkeli and Lappeenranta.

"The landscapes were gorgeous and the sauna was amazing."​
