Experience everything this beautiful area has to offer including a forest lake, the scent of Wild Rosemary, a natural spring by a steep rock, and flowering meadows which are home to many species of birds – all under breathtaking open skies. This region was home to farmer Saarijärven Paavo, a much-loved character in a poem by prominent Finnish writer J.L. Runeberg.
The holiday cabins and cottages, each with its own courtyard, offer great opportunities either for recreation or for finding some peace and quiet and recharging your batteries.
Lamminkangas is situated in Saarijärvi, in the north of Central Finland.
Discover the unique atmosphere of our cottages and cabins, some of which are over a hundred years old. Some buildings were constructed more recently, but all of them have been built in a traditional and eco-conscious style. Lamminkangas and the surrounding area are peaceful, and the buildings are decorated in a comfortable, homely way. Every cottage and cabin has its own tranquil courtyard.
This pretty cabin for six people (by special request for eight people) was transferred to this location beam by beam in the traditional way in 1990. Now it is ideal for a couple or a family or even two small families. The cabin has a cosy kitchen/dining/living area, wood burning fireplace, small terrace and two attic sleeping areas with two mattresses in each separated by a door.
A lovely converted barn room next to the cabin provides a separate living and sleeping area for two. The cabin has a tranquil setting deep in the countryside and just 15m from the small Havulampi Lake. The cabin grounds include a sandy beach and a nice pier, where you will find a table and chairs for drinking 5 o’clock tea watching your children swimming or admiring the sunset.
The cabin is available for holiday rental from May to October.
Pets are allowed, but smoking is not.
Weekly Friday-to-Friday rentals are preferred, but short breaks may be allowed by arrangement.
Cabin amenities: Wood burning sauna, shower, WC, fireplace and logs, electric oven and hobs, coffee maker, fridge/freezer, hoover, TV, electric heating, a car heating point and a cot by request.
Lamminkangas is surrounded by the beautiful open countryside of Central Finland with its forests, lakes and hills. There is a wide range of greenery in this locality, as well as many tree and bird species. Hares, deer, elk, badgers, lynx and even bears live in the area. Vast panoramas can be admired from the top of the Lamminkangas hills in the hours of daylight (in June and July this continues almost throughout the night). In the hours of darkness the stars and milky way can be seen very clearly.
The nature loving spirit of Lamminkangas is indicated by, for example, organic farming techniques and ecological building materials such as wood, linen, turf, sawdust and clay. Lamminkangas has an environmentally friendly electricity contract and is a member of ECEAT Finland (European Centre for Ecological and Agricultural Tourism) .
Recycling is utilized in local construction work. Complete log cabins have been moved to new locations and converted to new uses. Antique interiors, furniture and household items have been favoured. This has been done to protect the environment and also for the comfort of everyone staying in Lamminkangas.
A walk around Lamminkangas (about 1 km) is a superb way to get acquainted with the surroundings.
The croft at Lamminkangas was established in 1900, when Aakku (later of Lamminkangas) requested a crofter’s plot and was given one on the property of Havumäki, in his home village, Kalmari. Kalmari is situated on the border of four old parishes – Saarijärvi, Kannonkoski, Karstula and Pylkönmäki.
There is a Finnish poem, 'Letter to Aakku', which tells the story of Lamminkangas during and after Aakku’s time. The poem was written by Heikki Mikkonen, but unfortunately it has not been translated into English.
There are several indicators in the terrain of Lamminkangas which show that before Aakku's time, slash-and-burn agriculture was practiced. An old flat-bottomed rowing boat made of a single tree has been found in the mud of Havulampi, the lake on whose border Lamminkangas lies.
