Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked Niemilomat as a one-night stopover on a journey from Kuhmo to Helsinki; I.think that if we do another Finnish holiday I’d make it our base. We stayed in the main house—an attractive old building with a lot of nooks and terraces to relax on—but there are some lovely cottages as well. The establishment is right on a lake, and one can do the classic jump from the sauna into the water. There are also boats, and a major canoeing route starts at the pier. Wild strawberries and bilberries can be picked in the local woodland, and the location is ideal for exploring the Lakeland.

Yövyimme täällä yhden yön. Rauhallinen sijainti niemen kärjessä jossa upeat maisemat järvelle. Siistit ja viihtyisät yleiset tilat ja huoneet. Ihana, hyvä ja runsas aamiainen tupakeittiössä. Ystävällinen henkilökunta ja pihapiirissä suloinen kissa. Suosittelen! We stayed here for one night. Quiet location with plenty of nature at a small cape with beautiful views to the lake. Clean and homey communal areas and rooms. Fantastic, lovely, and plentiful breakfast. The staff is friendly and there was a cute cat roaming around the property (outdoors). Highly recommended!

This B&B is located in a gorgeous cape. We stayed at the "Telakan kammari" which was very comfortable and had a full kitchen, as well as a shower and a toilet. Value for money was very good here. It was a cold day and they had heated up the fireplace before we got there so it was warm and cozy the whole night. There were also swings and some other playground stuff for the kids which was good. Used the sauna by the lake which was great. Accidentally left a bag of shoes here, and they called us promptly when we had left and promised to have the bag delivered to us. Could definitely see us returning here, thank you Niemilomat!

I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast, run by a super friendly couple. The surrounding is pure nature beautiful and the building a wooden house. The atmosphere made me feel at home in a true Finnish family. I could also enjoy a fantastic home made dinner with a lovely glass of wine. I can really recommend this place!

Beside a beautiful lake, this amazing accommodation is located. Here you get the best of Finland! We have rented rooms in the main house for shorter stays and the main house for family vacations and we´ll keep coming back again and again. The house is spacious and luxurious with sauna and hot bath and 3 bathrooms. It can easily accommodates a big family as it has 12 beds in four rooms. There are plenty of outdoor activities as disc golf, running, fishing and sailing. Children loves to stay here and adults can relax on the terrace with a stunning view and sunset. The host are helpful and friendly and make us feel very much at home. This is Finland at its best.

Love this place surrounded by water. I try go there every summer and even had my wedding in there. Owners are super nice and friendly and the bigger cottage (Riitan parsi) is perfect for a larger group. And the small swimming pool inside the cottage is super fun. Food is very traditional Finnish but fresh and good.

During our first roundtrip to Finland in 2005 we stayed in Niemilomat for a couple of days and we have returned there every summer since. I think it is there that we fell in love with the beautifull atmosphere and scenery of Finland. In Niemilomat you will experience a warm welcome with excellent food and lots of hospitality. This family business has been started by Väinö and Anneli Hämäläinen. They are very friendly people who do the utmost to give you a wonderful stay. There is a lakeside sauna and smokesauna too. You can also take a rowing boat and enjoy a picnic on one of the many small islands in the lake. Take your book and fishing rod and you'll enjoy your day in peace and quietness. In the evening time you can enjoy a drink from the bar and if you take dinner we would recommend the home smoked salmon! Go, see and try it yourself. You won't be disappointed.
