About Erja Laine
We are Erja and Arto Laine, farmers from the municipality of Hattula which is located in the middle of south Finland. We have three adult children. Our own home, the main farm house of the estate, is located 2 km from the cottages. We are a small family company and we are dedicated to offer you friendly and unique service. We are looking forward to having you as our guest in our cottages as well as in Finland.
Why Erja Laine chose Hattula
Arto’s family have had this farm since the late 1800's, and we have continued farming since 1994. The cottage called Kaisla (Bulrush) was completed in the spring of 2007, and another one, called Lumme (Waterlily), by the end of the same year. The versatile culture environment in the Vanajavesi valley was formed during centuries. Due to its fertile surroundings, the Vanajavesi waterway has provided a favourable place for inhabitation. The first farmers lived in this area as early as in the Iron Age. There has been a prosperous manor house culture with fine parks since the Middle Ages. The oldest cottages by lake Vanajavesi were built in the 1800’s.
What makes this Cottage unique
Ridges, lakes, fields, forests and marshes are typical of the landscape. As the phrase goes; Finland is the land of a thousands lakes. The beautiful Lake Vanajavesi is 31st largest lake. Kriipi’s island and the surrounding water area included in the Finnish Natura 2000 network of nature protection areas. Here you can also observe a variety of birds, such as ducks, terns, great crested grebes and swans. Deer, elks and foxes are common in this area. At dusk, there are tailed deer moving near the cottages. After you have been in an original wood stove sauna and swum in the lake or rolled in the snow, you’ll understand why Finns love the sauna.

We spent a lovely week (+1) in the cottage in the summer. It is beautiful, well equipped, and a perfect place to relax. Highly recommended.
More than amazing!
I think this is a case, when everything was better than expected! Absolutely beautiful place, amazing house, nice owner. Thank you a lot!
Beautiful location,super cottage,friendly host...!
Cottage location is ideal...secluded enough to feel like your'e very alone yet close enough to a village that has a couple of great supermarkets ...only a 10 minute drive away.
The cottage is well appointed with 2 double bedrooms and further beds on a mezzanine level which our teenagers enjoyed. A large living area/kitchen is well equipped and has a great dining table....
The wood burning sauna was well used on our stay and heats up swiftly and easily seats 6.. after which a short run to the lake for a cooling dip was much appreciated...
Theres a great gas BBQ outside where we cooked most meals whilst admiring the beautiful sunsets over the lake ...beer in hand...
Perfect place to spend a quiet, relaxing week
The Lumme cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Having been travelling throughout the region with two young children the week before, we wanted a cozy place to settle for a week. Lumme cottage is in a gorgeous setting with everything you need. Lakefront, a rowboat at your disposal, a fire pit and even a small swing set for young children. Inside the cottage was very well done with space for our family and more. The kitchen was stocked with all the kitchen wares you would need, and the spa was a perfect way to end the day! We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend the cottage to our friends and family.
