Looking to trade everyday stress, endless smart phone ringing and invasive e-mails for a good rest in a cozy cottage, meditative walks in the forest and romantic boat journeys below midnight sun & Aurora Borealis ?


Only 25 min. away from Ivalo Airport and 45 min. from Saariselkä Ski Resort, Lovers' Lake Retreat is located on the shores of Lake Rytijärvi & within Magical Forests of Lapland.


A perfect place to experience the authentic minimalist Finnish lifestyle in harmony with Nature.

The space
Lovers Lake Retreat is a private property composed of three separate buildings all using wood-heating systems. The main cottage & The Sauna (both powered by solar panels and wind turbine), The Summer Kitchen offering unrivaled open-fire cooking and dining experience.

The main cottage is equipped with an open kitchen, a gas-powered fridge, oven and stove. A unique hand-crafted bear shaped fireplace is keeping the whole cottage warm. Daily use fresh water can be carried from the lake with buckets and the purest drinkable fresh water can be collected at Lover's Lake natural spring.

The wood-heated Sauna and adjacent fireplace room are wonderful spots to chill out in the evening. There is no better way to wrap-up a relaxing day than enjoying hot Sauna with a couple of cold ones! Finnish Bucket shower requires lake water which can be heated in a large tank. BTW, lake water possess unique softening properties for skin & hair, a must try!

The cottage is also equipped with a large circular wood-heated outdoor hot tub where you can admire a breathtaking Natural landscape or even artic lights. During winter season out door tub can be used whenever the outdoor temperature is below -15 Celsius (for health and safety reasons)!

The summer kitchen is fully equipped to cook delicious meals using open-fire method and provides a stunning lake view. A unique dining experience for lover's, friends and Families!

Wood supply for fireplaces is stored in a separate woodshed's cabin, guest are requested to use wood reasonably and responsibly. An ecological composting dry toilet is located behind the main cottage.

Activities

The cottage has a small rowing boat, a couple of fishing rods and nets for guest use. If you are lucky you may catch Trout, Whitefishes, Perches and less delicious Pike fishes. Next to woodshed's cabin, you will also find a traditional outdoor food smoking device should you fancy smoked fish.

The surrounding forest is a perfect place to take meditative walks or pick-up some Blue Berries, Cloudberries, Cowberries and mushrooms in late summer and autumn. The cottage also has two inflatable paddle boards enabling you to have fun in discovering the lake while doing exercise at the middle of Nature!
