#6 of 12 B&Bs / Inns in Muhu
Tõnise Guesthouse got a new lease on life in 2003, when a Finnish family took over the management of this old farm complex. The old horse stable has been turned into a cosy dining hall and storehouses have been turned into comfortable bedrooms. Guests have said that they slept like birds in a nest in the chambers with thatched roofs. In addition to romantic accommodation in the barn, guests can also stay in the larger rooms on the first floor of the main building.

If you need real piece, far away from city trouble: here is your escape, an island. And there you will not find just a guesthouse, but a place where your soul can rest and your heart will blossom again. If you are not quite as poetic as I might be, that is what you will find: a mix of English cottage garden and authentic Muhumaa architecture with a personal touch from Soile, the hostess. Tomatoes, cucumbers, wild garlic and a variety of herbs are grown to be part of your breakfast. Various fish comes from a local fish shop, and is delicious as you might expect, as well as the famous Muhu dark bread which you must taste even if you normally adore croissants. Better try to book for several nights as it will be painful to leave, and to start "normal" life again.

4 of us visited the place in high sason and lot of different stuff happened. We booked 2 rooms online 3 month before oir arrival and made the deposit payment of 1/3 of the overall sum. When we arrived we had some bottles of water and a wine with us and if we asked for some glasses we were charged 5-10 euros per bottle. We were told it is a restaurant and bringing your own stuff to the premices is not OK. We got our rooms but had the impression of not being welcome there during high season. Shared toilet and showers is something I can live with. After first night the owner kady sayd that due to the overbooking and a guest arriving with dog our party of 4 have to move to one room. As it was late notice we packed or stuff and moved together. We stayed there for anothee night and left in the next morning. If we started to settle the bill the lady charged the full price + price for bottles we brought despite the fact that we did'nt get the rooms, the good service or even showers (there was eventually a water keak and the bathroom was closed). After the half an hour arguing the bill was reduced but we were said that it still is a restaurant and you have to buy the dinners that the owner cooks and the drinks (4-5 different wines, beers, water, soft drinks) sold in the lobby. Alltogether it was a really bad experience and the attitude of the owner is absolutely not OK.

We had a wonderful time and the owner was very accommodating. Meals were great, sauna nice. We did not realize the bathrooms were shared and you had to walk across the entire yard to get to them, no lifts at night made that difficult. Rooms are very basic. Bikes that you can rent are not in the best shape.

We booked the Tonise Majatalo based on the location and nice looking photos of the webside. I emailed the owner telling there were adults and small children coming. When we arrived the owner hardly greeted us and was very unpolite to us. Maybe she had a bad day or maybe she didn't like children but we felt right from the beginning that we were unwelcome. The price of the room was 80-100e per room. For that price you get a room in a shed without toilet, without drinking water...there weren't even glasses in the room to get water from the toilet. For that price in Estonia you can stay in unbelievable places. It was a shame that the owner ruined the whole place by her behaver and by the price. The place could have been nice, the food was good, the area nice. So for that price look for something else. If you want basic accommondation, you can get it a lot cheaper elsewhere.

Muhu is the tiny sister island to bigger Saaremaa, and is about two hours drive from Tallinn including a short ferry crossing. Tonise is a simple rural retreat with rustic cabin rooms in a beautiful hamlet of traditional wooden, reed-roofed houses. Soile, the Finnish owner and host, is knowledgeable and fun. Open in summer only, Tonise is great for outdoor-loving families or adventurous travelers looking for a taste of rural Estonian life. Lovely surroundings, good food, very peaceful, a great place to relax, walk or as a base for summer music festivals on Muhu (late June) and Saaremaa (late July).
