The terrace can accommodate about 100 people to dine and admire the scenery to the lake. The terrace is completely covered, so no summer rain can ruin the celebrations, but in winter time the terrace is not available.


The sauna has room for 10 people at a time and is available for rent all year round. It is located on the beachfront so you can take a refreshing dip in the lake. Or in winter time, if you are brave enough, go ice swimming.

The dressing room is a comfy place to cool off and enjoy refreshments that you can order directly to the sauna facilities.


The armoury in the ground floor is an excellent meeting and dining facility for small groups. The room is decorated in Hakkapeliitta theme with paintings and Hakkapeliitta weapons.
