The Hawkhill Resort’s Villa Maria is so delightful that you’ll want to stay forever. This modest log cottage is rustic and wonderful, surrounded by gorgeous trees and lovely landscape, and it’s so idyllic that you’ll never want to leave. The Villa Maria is a family-sized vacation cabin located west of Helsinki, Finland, on a small lake. The log cabin has a modern appearance, but also has a traditional appeal due to the fact that it was constructed utilizing traditional log home building techniques. The logs were scribed to fit together properly before being fastened at the corners using Scandinavian saddle notches. It has two bedrooms, a den, and one bathroom in a total of 969 square feet. There’s also a separate sauna for guests to relax and rejuvenate in. The main living area of the cottage is a huge room with comfortable sofas that may be changed to fit the needs of the renters. The dining room and kitchen are located directly behind the living room and provide all of the required amenities for cooking and eating meals. A wonderful wood burning stove is also available for comfortable fires.
The two bedrooms, both with two twin beds and a two-piece bathroom, are just off the cooking area, but the shower is near to the sauna. The rustic sauna is accessible via the den and a little wash room accessible from the outdoors. Wouldn’t sitting in a lovely, warm sauna be a great way to start or end the day? A big patio and a covered porch are also available for dining and relaxation. There’s even a handcrafted brick grill in a log BBQ hut. The gorgeous lake, which may be enjoyed during the summer, is just feet from the cabin. It’s a private beach with a rowing boat available to use for the length of your stay. After a sauna session, some people love jumping into the cool lake water.
If you’re traveling with a newborn, the resort also lends out baby cribs. In the winter, they hire out snowshoes and kicksleds, while in the summer, they lend out kick-bikes and mountain bikes. They also have a couple more log cabin rentals and a larger property that can be rented out in addition to the Villa Maria. While staying in the cabins or at home, there are lots of fun and relaxing activities to keep you occupied and entertained, and the staff is more than eager to assist their visitors in any way they can. Staying in a log cabin like the ones at Hawkhill is a terrific idea if you enjoy traveling and discovering unusual lodgings. It’s a particularly good idea if you want to build or buy a log cabin of your own, or if you’re just captivated with log homes and cabins in general. Would you like to take your loved ones on a quiet and refreshing holiday to a cottage like this? It’ll undoubtedly create lifelong memories.
