Lovely weekend far away from city stress

Review of Jokelan Kartano
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 May 2012
I loved the place. Stayed there for three nights during a sunny, late-May weekend, one of those very warm and happy weekends when you have a chance to get away from the daily stress. Jokelan in Hämeenkoski is a perfect base for exploring Häme and Lahti regions. Hämeenkoski is surrounded by a great number of places of interests, such as Hämeenlinna, Lammi, Asikkala, Hollola and Lahti, and of natural beauty, for which you simply need to have your eyes wide open. The Finnish countryside is lovely in summer and absolutely worth visiting and spending some days to explore. The Jokelan manor house is well run and taken care of, although certain small things may still need some repair, which the hosts readily admit. The house has it all what a leisure traveller may need. At least it fully met my expectations for tranquillity and comfort. The rooms, different in sizes, may seem somewhat basic and most of them don’t have bathrooms. This would otherwise have bothered me, but since I was the only guest staying at Jokelan overnight, I had half of the upper floor just to myself. The hosts, Raila and Pentti, are very open-minded and sincere people, working hard to maintain the property and entertain the guests of which they sometimes have forty or fifty people hiring Jokelan to celebrate family events during the day. There were exactly two of such day events during the weekend I stayed at Jokelan, and every time I returned “home” from exploring this beautiful region, no trace of party mess was to be found, the house stood clean and fresh, surrounded by blossoming apple trees.

If you've just left Helsinki and you're planning to head to the north why not stop at this comfortable place in Hameenkoski, just a few minutes from the city of Lahti? I've spent some nice days at Jokelan Kartano with my girlfriend and we were "cuddled" and taken care of by the owner Raila, a very hospitable lady with a great sense of humour, and her husband. The rooms are warm and cozy and so is the sauna,for those who are willing to stand the heat! There's also a supermarket nearby if you want to fix yourself something to eat and facilities to make your own coffee and tea are available too. If you've never been there, it's well worth a try, trust me.
