I visited Karelia Holidays, Rose Cottage in October 2016 with 9 friends + myself. Honestly, I have nothing but positives to say of my stay. Mark is extremely helpful, friendly and will go above and beyond. Rose Cottage is so beautiful and enormous! There were 10 of us and still so much space, with a fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave,...

Myself and 15 friends stayed here in September 16 (following a great trip in September 2015). We occupied 2 cottages and had a fabulous time! The cottages provide everything and more that you could need/want for your trip. They are set in a beautiful location, with excellent facilities; Karelia is great value for money. The highlight of our weekend was...

I was surprised when I read the negative review of Rose Cottage as we spent a lovely week there at the beginning of August. It was spacious and well equipped and as two families of four, most of which were adults, plus a dog, we didn't feel cramped at all. As was pointed out Rose Cottage is attached to the...

I chose to stay at Karelia Cabins after seeing some good reviews. I checked the website and it looked good. Mark was very helpful and only had the 8 person cabin left so he gave me a part discount as it was only for 3 people and a dog. Unfortunately, when I got there, all was not as it seemed....

I've just got back from a weekend stay at the Karelia cabins and want to return already! We booked a holiday there to get away from London and switch off for a bit and this was the perfect place. I didn't want to stay in typical hotel accommodation and wanted something a bit different. The cabin we had was Rose...

Just returned home(Canada) from England...spent close to a week at the Karelia Cottages. What can I say ...it had everything we needed...and if we didnt have it, the hosts were more than willing to supply what was needed. We arrived with the hosts welcoming us to their lovely resort...with a glass of wine and home made bread. Cottage was immaculate,...

If you love nature, the tranquility of the forest, the crackle of a fire pit and the smell of a BBQ, then this is the perfect place for you. Since booking for my husband's birthday last year we have been back three times and have recommended to close friends and family who have also stayed with equal delight. I even...

We stayed in Karelia cabin which was beautiful, warm and cosy. The weather was a mixture of sunshine, sleet and snow (in April!) so the cabin was exactly what we wanted. I would love to return in the summer to make full use of the outside space, bbq and swing seat! The living space in the cabin was just right...

We absolutely loved our trip at Karelia from beginning to end. We went along with several other families and so had the whole area to ourselves. We were greeted warmly by Sybille and Mark who showed us the ropes with using the log fires, areas of local interest and were kind with ensuring our children were comfortable and even offered...

A week in the spectacular Laakotta cabins was the perfect relaxing break for all ages. The ideal location made it a safe, idyllic area to enjoy on foot or by bike! The unique mezzanine bedrooms were reasonably private and entertaining for children and adults alike! Mark, Gigi and Sybille were extremely helpful and advised us on things to do, places...
