High on a hill with a spectacular view of the sea, this 45 sq. meter cottage is located in Hamina archipelago, on Rakinkotka island, a mere 15-minute boat drive from our Vimpasaari property.
Built on a beautiful hill, this cabin has two bedrooms, terrace view a view, a small kitchen, living space and a fireplace. Here in this historical setting that feels like another world, you can relax both body and mind, and leave the busy-ness of everyday live behind.
Vikings used Rakinkotka while travelling on the East Road ja there’s even one Viking grave on the island. With its gorgeous nature, the island is perfect for not only holidays, but also Viking-themed experiences. You too can go on a picnic along an ancient road or compete at Viking-themed forest golf.
Atmospheric historical island village of Rakinkotka sources its energy from the sun and the wind. This respect for nature shows also in the buildings, as all of them are built respecting the archipelago and its atmosphere. Some of the buildings are from the 19th century and some have been built from the wood that has been damaged by the storms.
Most of the meals served are prepared from high-quality ingredients that we ourselves have picked in Rakinkotka forests, grown on our own fields or caught from local waters. In summer, you can spot sheep and our working ladies will bring fresh organic eggs straight from our chickens to your breakfast table. If we need ingredients from outside the island, we source them from local farms only.
Wood-heated beach sauna seats 10 people at once. Traditional smoke sauna twice as many. But the real treat is the outdoor hot tub, where in addition to the spectacular view, you can also admire the starry night sky. Hot tub can seat up to 8-10 people at once. Cool down afterwards at the terrace or in the salty sea waters, better than any spa.
Rakinkotka is a gorgeous 27-hectare island, where you can relax next to the sea. In spring and fall you can watch birds migrate right over the island, but the nature can be enjoyed any time, even just by being on the island.
We also organize nature trips and activities, including fishing in local waters and boating in Hamina archipelago and Gulf of Finland. You are more than welcome to fish on your own as well, and every cottage of ours comes with a rowing boat.
