The owner is a lovely lady who cooked us amazing traditional Karelian food - everything was locally sourced and home made, from fish from the river, berries from the forest etc. The bread was freshly baked in their wood burning oven and she even made homemade beer and strawberry drink for the kids. We stayed in a very spacious log cabin next to the house complete with elk antlers. The location was very convenient - just off the road going north to Hossa National Park. Views from the house of countryside and lake. Would highly recommend.

Middle In the North Karelian nature you can find Puukarin Pysäkki. Exellent choise to stay in your path to Lappland or back. I believe that once you have visited and enjoyed great food and nature next time you will not past without stoping. At least that is our experience. So we are falling love to Puukarin Pysäkki.

Awesome food, good location and facilities and great service. A big sauna. All food is produced with ecological methods and raw incredients are acquired from own or near fields. Food is hand made. Tee was great, I think it was spearmint.

We spent one night here. We had a twin room with a private bathroom. The room was spacious and clean. Loved the organic soaps! Good customer service, lovely hosts. The breakfast was to die for; homemade bread, porridge, organic vegetables, wild herbs, berries etc. Will definitely come back again, would also like to try lunch and/or dinner.

This was the first guest house on our Ski tour which included 3 other guest houses. We stayed 2 nights. The highlights were the helpful proprietress, the food and the prepared ski tracks around the Guest House. The guest house is adjacent to the E6 just north of Valtimo. It has a set of adjacent groomed langlauf tracks which snake up, down and around the local hill. The Guest House can cater for individuals, families and groups. Like all the guest houses at which we stayed, the food was locally sourced and typical of the area. A special feature of this guest house was proprietress’ (Anni) informative and educational explanation of the menus, including their source, how they were prepared and the part they played in the local culture. The food is clearly a major feature of this guest house and has won awards. As an extra bonus we were treated by Anni to a short performance of local songs accompanied by herself on a on a kantele which is a traditional string instrument. Our bedroom was one of three on the upstairs of the main building, one of which was a suite. We had one of the other two with a shared toilet with shower. There was a large sitting come dining area downstairs albeit there were no easy chairs. The Ski room was in a separate building, as was the sauna and some of the guest accommodation. The wifi was fast and constant. As an added bonus Anni arranged for us to attend a concert given by three choral societies in the nearby Valtimo. Definately a place to experiecne.
