Paradise for sauna bathers

Farmhouse Sipilä is the perfect place for sauna lovers, who can have three different sauna experiences here.

The lakeshore sauna for 4-5 bathers has a dressing room with a window that opens, and a large beach terrace. Water for bathing is fetched from the lake. On the beach you will find a campfire site and a shed with ready-to-use firewood for the sauna stove. There is also an outhouse near the lake.

A separate fee of €200 is charged for the use of the lakeshore sauna in May-October. The sauna is not in use in winter.

There is a traditional outdoor sauna for four bathers in the garden, under the shelter of some lilac bushes. The sauna building comprises a small dressing room and terrace. Water for bathing is hand pumped from the well in the garden and carried to the sauna.

The farmhouse also has an indoor sauna with an electric stove and shower, for four bathers.
