We stayed 2 nights in early september and were a bit disappointed. We expected a cosy place with an authentic feeling, a place to meet and interact with local people. We also had understood that this was a place where we could have cooked our meal (a BBQ is mentioned and it says "outdoor cooking place"). But when we arrived and saw no such place, we asked about it. What was our surprise when the girl from the house got quite mad at us, saying we should have read the description better on booking.com. She said that there is no communal cooking place but just the BBQ. Unfortunatly it as out of order (a hole covering 2/3 of its bottom made it impossible for the coal to stay inside) and she said they only replace it in the begining of the season, that it was our choice to come out of the "season",... We had picked some mushrooms and bought some eggs and needed to cook them. We asked it a solution could be found and she was really angry about us, but finaly agreed that we use the breakfast kitchen for a few mn, but only this time and only for the mushroom. But when we started cooking the mother came and also got angry at us, saying she had work to do. The rest of the stay was smoother but still strict, not a happy feeling there. I need to add some precision too : when reading the other reviews it seemed that breakfasts were something worth trying. For 7€ per person we had everything one can ask at a breakfast table (cheese, ham, egg, cereals, milk, coffee, tea, bread, jam, butter, honey, juice, yogurt, porridge and some cookies/cake). It seems great but all these were of poor quality from the nearby supermarket. Nothing was homemade as I had read in some reviews. We saw the exact same bread, cakes,... in the shop in Vosu for cheap. I would have prefered less choice but more traditionnal and tasty (the ham and cheese and cake were tastless). Breakfast is served at 9 and at 10 we got kicked out of the room because she needed the place. Sauna cost 40€ for 2h and 10€ per extra hour. It's quite a price to pay for some almost free wood (and 2h to heat it), but the experience is still worth trying especialy if you share the price with other people. It's in a nice typical wooden house in the backyard with a place to change and an other to wash. It fits about 4 people. One double room (the one we had) is very nicely decorated with a cosy atmosphere, there is a fridge and a kettle (i wonder why the fridge if there is nowhere to cook though) and the bedding is wonderfull. We had some great nights there. There is no water in the room (sink, toilet,... whatsoever). One other double room is sharing the same entrance. This one doesn't have any fridge, just a kettle, and is not as beautiful as the one we had. Theses 2 rooms share the toilets and shower in a seperate room, accessible from the little coridor. There is a 3rd room with a seperate entrance which does have a cooking place, as we understood, but we didn't see it. I don't want to be all negative about the place because it has something, but our experience was not as pleasant as we'd expected. We were told that it's the first year that they had some tourists after august 31th, so maybe they just need to adapt to the fast transformation to the country.

This is the place when you want to experience the beauty of Estonian nature and see old authentic farm buildings. Nice beach near the venue, as well as nature route through woods, full of berries. However, it was somehow ruined by grumpy attitude of the hosting lady in the morning.

The other reviews really do sum up the experience well. Initially we found it difficult to navigate the few online searches for accommodation but a quick response and bargain price had us hooked (€45/n) There is also a bus going there in summer from Tallin each day at 10.30 for €6.50. The German Shepherd 'marta' is friendly on arrival. Having a car would get you to the tourist places otherwise Ulle (she calls herself the mistress) has bicycles, or Vihulla Manor nearby has them too and we negotiated an overnight price. Ulle used to be a park ranger of sorts and has lots of information. The map is deceiving... You could get to Krasma easily for a day trip, and there are forest trails which are at Oandu and quite fun. Take the seaside turnoff, the info boards are highly informative. The beach nearby is rarely visited and the blueberries/strawberries in the forest are plentiful. The tavern has great food at good prices. Two nights of mains set us back €50. We took our own breakfast, however the spread on offer at the guesthouse is great too.

We spent two nights at the Toomarahva farm in a relatively simple room with a bed for two persons (no cooking facilities). The room was very nicely furnished and we had a small veranda outside. Ülle prepared a very good breakfast and was truly lovely. She gave us very good advice where to find a beach hardly visited by people. We took a bike ride through the forest without meeting anybody, went for a walk on the beaver trail and picked a lot of blueberries. The place was very quiet and our stay was truly relaxing, we wish we had stayed longer. The restaurant next door is very original with good food at great prices.

We're so glad we decided to head out to the countryside and stay here in the beautiful Lahemaa National Park. It was only a few hours drive from Tallinn and such a tranquil part of the world. It was very easy to relax and enjoy the fresh air. We went in autumn and loved the colourful leaves and foliage but it would also be magnificent in the other seasons too. At this time of year there was hardly anyone else around - it felt like we had the whole country to ourselves! Uelle is one of the nicest people we have met on our travels. She is a warm and welcoming host with helpful recommendations. We took Marta, her friendly dog for a walk down to the beach (what a character!) and it was like we had known her for a long time as she stayed with us the whole time (except when she saw a cat). The cabin we stayed in was comfortable and warm and had everything we needed. The local pub was across the road and there were numerous forest walks within walking distance or a few minutes drive. We enjoyed our stay here very much and hope we can return one day soon.
