Sleep and relax in the peace of nature

Karkausmäki Guesthouse is in Kinnula, Central Finland. We offer cozy accommodation with modern facilities.

Welcome to Northern Central Finland and Kinnula!

We think that everyone should have a place to hide.

A chamber to retreat to between adventures, far from the rush of the world and the demands of others.

Sometimes it’s good for everyone to escape from their everyday life, to get to know their own thoughts in peace.

For others, that hiding place can be found in the corner of the sofa or in a favorite book.

For us, that place is Karkausmäki Guesthouse, where you can rest your wild nature with all your senses!
