Our country cottage is located just 1 km from the shore and village Gumbostrand 27 km from Helsinki city. This suits persons who like to be outside and have some experience.
It is a cottage with two rooms and a sauna, a typical summerhouse in Finland.
There is electricity but not running water. The wooden-loo is outside and You can wash Yourself in the woodenheated sauna.

To get to the island, You have to rent our little 20 hp motorboat or go by taxiboat, it only takes a couple of minutes. We can also take You there:)

At the cottage we have our own little bridge to go to swim from. We have a trampoline for kids.

You can fish either from the bridge or from the boat.

There is a lot of countryhouses in the nabourhood. You can easily take long or short walks from gumbostrand. From Gumbostrand there goes a boat every day to nearby islands where you can camp or just have a picnic.
