We had a lovely holiday in Ylläshilla. The cottage is spacious and upstairs there is plenty of room for kids to play. The outdoor "summer kitchen" was a great adding to the cottage it self. Everything was is good condition and kitchen is very well equipped with all needed cooking accesssories. I highly recommed Ylläshilla!

Great to hear that you liked our cottage! Our tradition is to cook traditional Finnish pancakes in Kota (Kota = the "summer kitchen") every time we visit Ylläs :) Thank you for the feedback, Family Kirmanen

Beautiful cottage that exceeded all our expectations by mile. We have stayed in Ylläshilla now twice - both times during school autumn holidays in October. Cottage has everything you need, it is spacious and also the location is excellent. Warmly recommended.

We were on a family vacation in Ylläshilla log cabin during Christmas. It's a very well equipped house in a peaceful location at the end of a road. Hiking trails start right off the front door and lakes and fells are also near. Sincerely recommended.

Family holiday to celebrate a birthday, all 10 of us getting together from England and Australia. Absolutely magical. Immaculate cottage, incredibly attentive owners and beautiful country.

We booked Yllashilla for a group of 8 adults for a 60th birthday celebration. It was perfect. The house is beautiful, complete with a sauna and outbuilding that houses a cooking fire, where we spent many wonderful evenings. The owners of Yllashilla put together a wonderful itinerary for us, cross-country ski-ing (there are tracks virtually from the front door), snow-mobiling,...

Thank you for the review and apologies for the near-illegally-late response :D We are so happy to hear that your stay was so nice. It was absolutely no trouble for us to arrange the activities and help for you. Sorry for the unfortunate event of broken leg though. We've upgraded the cabin (f.e. with wi-fi), so whenever you feel like...
