Cabin stay
I stayed in the cabin with a friend for a couple of nights and did some gold digging across the road. The cabin was neat and served our purpose. The camping washroom facilities ok but the shower could use some improvements. The restaurant had really good food!

Fun rustic cabin in middle of nowhere
Great to be in cabins in nowhere in middle of Finnish snowy winter. In summer probably a little tacky next to fake Gold Mine town. Bathrooms are communal and have ventilation and plumbing issues. Food is excellent, prices are great.
