We stayed here for a weekend on easter of 2017 and I have nothing but good things to say about the place and its hosts. First of all, the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and they made us feel like home immediately upon arriving. They let us know about all the possibilities of things to do around the area and kindly answered all our questions about hiking and the history of the place. We ended up ice fishing (which was amazing), catching our own fish and cooking it and then going to the barrel sauna they had outside. The breakfast was very good and we felt extremely relaxed after our stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for relaxation.

We ended up at this place after walking the Karhunpolku and Canoëing the Jogunjoki. (9 day's in total) Beïng very hungry and tired, we started looking in Nurmijärvi for a restaurant and a sauna. We were so lucky to end up here! The host wasn't expecting us, because they only take bookings at forhand. But she welcomed us very friendly! We had the most beautiful view, the most cute sauna in the world! And she even made us a very tasty and nice diner! We were so greatful to end up here! I hope one day we come back and stay a little bit longer. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!! Linsay & Dempsey

We stayed here for two nights in early April. Albeit not the best time of the year to visit, we still thought it was incredibly pretty, and it was great to see some of the migratory birds coming back. The forests are really nice to walk through, and the locals are very helpful in a pinch. Jarkko was incredibly helpful in describing possible walks we could go on and the local sights. He was also more than happy to go birdwatching with us! We really felt welcome and cared for during our stay. Jarkko is very knowledgable about the local wildlife and area, and was able to answer any questions we had for him. The cottage we stayed in was warm, clean, well furnished and maintained, and very very cozy. We honestly can't wait to be back! Thanks so much!

Location: wonderful! Rooms: beautiful! Courtesy: unbeatable! Close your eyes and imagine: a beautiful cottage, great .. clean .. elegant .. with all amenities. A lake, blue and calm ... where water lilies bloom .. where you can swim ... fish .. go canoeing ... or simply sleep to rowing on the boat. Imagine a lush green lawn with flowers and fruits to collect, between the cottage and the lake .. Imagine a real traditional Finnish sauna, then plunge into the lake ... Imagine a hut where you can cook and eat on the shore of the lake. Or even a fireplace right on the beach .... Imagine, all around, paths for walking, and cycling, among woods and carpets of fresh blueberries! Imagine that you stay for hours without listening to a car engine! Imagine walking in the woods at midnight, with no torch! In the incredible silence of the woods of Karelia. Imagine a hearty breakfast with fresh fruit and homemade jam on the spot, with local fruits ... Imagine people with incredible kindness ... They will provide everything: canoe, boat, bicycle, maps, sauna .. Now open your eyes, you've come to Jongunjoki! I've never seen a paradise like this ... I'll be back! I swear!

In early September, my husband and I spent two nights at Jongunjoen Matkailu. After a long drive from Helsinki we were tired so it was nice when the host, Victoria, greeted us at the road and said she had coffee, tea, and cookies waiting. This greeting set the tone for the rest of our stay there. Victoria cooked wonderful meals (especially the soup!), provided tips on what to do in the area, and loaned us maps, which we had neglected to bring. She and her husband were attentive without being intrusive. Their property is in a lovely wooded setting, and it's clean and well-maintained. My husband and I especially enjoyed our early morning breakfasts in the dining room, which overlooks a lake. We strongly recommend Jongunjoen Matkailu.
