I booked this through lastminute for there 10th birthday at £97 each inc flight and hotel, although the deal was not to be sniffed at, I was dubious of living conditions...we arrived on 12th January for a weeks stay with a total of 6 people.
I have to say, I and my traveling compadres were more than pleasantly surprised with the entire package, more so, the cabin.
It was definitely spacious (whoever said it wasn't must have been traveling with a herd of elephants), It was clean fairly modern and had a great selection of cooking utensils and utilities.
I agree with other reviews I have read, that you might not need to light the log fire although with our temperatures of -35, it was occasionally needed.
The TV had great reception for those wishing to watch it but only a few channels in English (take some cards or games - pass the bomb is recommended)
The XC ski track was right outside our door as was the frozen lake we walked on to watch the Northern Lights.
Hotel Akas is 2 minutes up the road and is a good meeting point they are also willing to assist with the cabins, holding keys etc.
The ONLY downer for me was the pillows being slightly flat, no big deal though as most places provide a basic pillow.
Recommended activities are the Ice Fishing with Inghams/Destination Lapland, Snowboarding/Ski-ing (of course), go on a LONG trek into the forests (but be mindful of thin ice on frozen lakes).
All in all I have been blown away with this holiday, it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, I have to give Inghams, LastMinute and Villa Armas Cabins a big thumbs up.
