Lehmonkarki is a resort in Southern Finland. We went in March 2007 with extended family and hired two log cabins. When I say log cabins these are no ordinary cabins, this is pure luxury! The cabins were equiped with hot tub on the deck outside and sauna inside. We had a 4 bedroom cabin all en suite, the cabins have all mod cons you can imagine with dishwasher, washer/dryer, plasma T.V., c.d. players and even an open wood burning stove.
I cant describe how perfect this little haven is. In winter (when we went) the huge lake is frozen over and the snow is thick on the ground! You can go husky dog sleighing, ice fishing, snow mobile riding or take a walk through the woods in the snow.
All I can say is we all had a ball and nobody in our party of 12 had one word of a complaint about the place. Kids will really enjoy it too making snow men and having snow ball fights. There is also a kiddies playground there and even when covered in snow they will love it.
The hot tubs are new and fantastic, just picture yourself sitting in the hot tub in the open air with the snow falling out of the sky while sipping a glass of pink champagne! Then to round it off hop out of the tubbie and make snow angels in the snow - I believe it's great for the circulation, we all had a go and just loved it. I can think of nothing more magical.
One thing though this place is in the middle of nowhere! We hired a private bus to take us from the airport there and stopped at a supermarket on the way to stock up on food and drink. We knew about this before we went so were well prepared and stocked up for our stay. This didn't bother us at all and we all had great fun cooking and relaxing with a few drinks!
