The story of Karkausmäki begins in the 18th century, when a local man of great strength, also a bear hunter called Lassi, chased away men who bullied his brother. He chased them all the way to Karkausmäki with his axe and spear.
Lassi’s memorial is situated only 200 metres from Karkausmäki, in the direction of Kinnula.
The present Karkausmäki house was built by a forestry company in the 1920’s to serve as lumberjacks’ cabin.
In the 1950’s and 60’s this estate housed a shop.
The present accommodation business began in 2015.
Me – Jenni
When I first saw that handsome log building, I knew it would be in my plans for the future.
My longest working career before starting as an entrepreneur was tending to trotting horses and customer service.
The idea of founding an inn had been maturing a long while already, and finally, I found the right place.
At the very beginning I was working for a salary, and my entrepreneurship was part-time.
Now I’m a full-time entrepreneur, and furthermore, at times I’m creating employment for other local companies e.g. through cleaning, textiles services and shared products.
You’re welcome to see and experience my dream!
