We stayed at this place for 4 nights with 2 friends. The chalet is perfect for 4 people, although it could accommodate 6 to 8 people.
Inside : There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bedroom in mezzanine. The beds are not very large (130cm) but this is not an issue for us. In the living room, there is a fire place and wood is available on the terrace. At no moment, we were cold. The fireplace warms the chalet more than enough.
The bathroom contains a sauna that works perfectly and a very nice warm shower. The kitchen part is small and not foreseen to make complex cooking, but who wants to start to cook complex things on holidays ;-)
It is fully furnished, except the food.
It is easy to park your car in front of the chalet, we were at chalet no 5 and you could even park 2 cars without any problem.
The place is very calm. And maybe you will have the chance, as we had, to see 2 reindeers walking peacefully in front of our place and taking their time.
And last but not least, the price is really competitive vs. other lodging in the neighbourhood. I warmly recommend this place if you don't look for luxury but still a warm and lovely place for your stay in Lapland. It was really a excellent surprise when we arrived.

One last remark: we had a car. So no issue to go from the check-in (in the hotel) to the chalet. It is not that far, but if you have to go by foot with your luggage, it might be not that convenient. Moreover, without a car, you have to go and do you shopping by foot. So, although a car is not mandatory, I would recommend to have one.

We stayed at Saariselka at feb 2105, and stayed for 2 nights at Saariselka Inn Log Cabin.

The cabin is around 10 mins walk from the city center, while we check-in at Panimo, be reminded that the log cabins is self-catering, you need to pay extra 5 euros to get the bed sheets.

It is a good experience for living in the cabin, there are two separated bedrooms inside, a bunk bed within each of the bedrooms, and two more beds on the roof, there is no wifi signals in the cabin.

We have walked on the hill to see aurora at nights, really amazing and unforgotten one.

We've been to Finnish Lapland many times and would certainly recommend a log cabin over a hotel. It's cheaper, quieter, prettier and you can chose the timing of your meals. Most of the hotels will offer you their unique facilities (indoor pool, etc.) for a small fee. Inghams offer a choice of 4-star and 3-star log cabins. The former are the more luxurious but the latter are more than adequate, although I wouldn't advise greater than two adults in occupancy as the bedroom area is quite small.

We stayed in a log cabin in the hill above Saariselka which is owned independently but let to Inghams / Lapland holidays. It was right at the top of the Suopunkitie loop road, so 20 minute walk from the town centre, but it was so worth it. We were expecting a much smaller cabin with ladder style steps to the mezzanine level but what we actually got was a beautiful large cabin that could sleep 11 ( there were 5 of us), 7 in the 2 attic bedrooms and seating area ( bed settee) upstairs, accessed by a proper although steep staircase, and 4 in a bunk room and double downstairs. The lounge was very comfortable with a huge brick fireplace which smoked if you overloaded the logs, but brilliant once you got the hang of it. The kitchen area was well equipped and the table sat 6. There was a large sauna area with two showers and a changing area, a drying room ( which my mother used as a wardrobe) and a utility room with a washing machine (make sure it is plugged in to use it). The only downside was that there is only one toilet. The location in the woods was very peaceful and we saw the Aurora from the threshold. Very beautiful and the kids played outside in the snow every day ( something that it not so easy in the town centre). The walk into town does take a bit of time, but we soon got used to it and just took taxis back up after shopping ( although I did sledge it once) or restaurants / bars. They cost about 10 Euros - fine for 5 of us. We ended up walking to the skiing area as it was 20 minutes from the cabin also, so quicker than walking into town and getting the ski bus, plus you can toboggan down the toboggan run half way down :). The supermarket is huge and has plenty to provide you with good food all week, but is also full of clothes and souvenirs. The "off-licence" in the supermarket is better stocked than many English comparable stores. I would highly recommend this log cabin to anyone. We went over Christmas and took all our decorations and stockings with us and it was a dream come true for my children and I. The Angry Birds Centre is great for the kids and you can relax with a beer in the holiday club bar whilst they are in there. The food in the holiday club was also excellent. I would also recommend the restaurant / bars at the top and bottom of the ski runs. We also went husky sledging independently with Kamisak husky farm - just us, no-one else, and we went to see Father Christmas at Kakslauttenen...a bit too commercialised for us (we were herded into a shop at one point) but the kids swallowed it whole. It was the best Christmas ever.

We booked with santas Lapland and stayed in a cabin for three nights.

The cabin was amazing. And the host Anna couldn't do enough for us.

If you book you won't be disappointed.

Best family holiday ever and the magical day was spectacular.

The santas Lapland staff were all full of beans and busted added to the magic.
