Great, tidy and peaceful place in the middle of nature. A special thank-you for the fantastic sauna and excellent customized breakfast. If ever any need for a place to stay the night in the area, I won't bother to look for anywhere else. Thanks once again.
The breakfast was exactly what we had wished for. The house is stylishly furnished and in a beautiful environment. I can warmly recommend Leena's B&B. The best thinkable accommodation and a very friendly hostess.
A magnificent smoke sauna and clean rooms. A big thank-you to sociable Leena for telling us in advance about the choices at breakfast. A peaceful location, the motorway is far enough not to disturb.
A goodnight's sleep in a loghouse
Leena's B&B offers accommodation in the middle of nature in idyllic rural surroundings, with wide cornfields in front of the house and an evergreen forest behind it.
In the area you can see wild animals from a bear to a hare and a wide range of migrating birds especially in spring and autumn. The quietness and peace is only interrupted by horses clattering on the village way and birds singing.
The house is built of thick Lapland pinewood according to the rules of Feng Shui and it is furnished with Finnish design and art handycraft. The atmosphere is serene and peaceful. The house accommodates 1-8 guests. There are new, comfortable beds in all rooms with a shared bathroom and shower. There is a cozy living-room and a beautiful glazed-in terrace with a magnificent view over the near-by cornfields.
The breakfast is served on the terrace in summer and in the dining area in winter.

A warm welcome, cozy, excellent breakfast, very clean.
A nice and beautiful place, peaceful atmosphere, first class, close to Upinniemi. Like a summer place, close to Kopparnäs, in the peace of nature, close to hiking trails.
Accommodation was tidy, the place was peaceful. An excellent packed breakfast was given to a night worker. Sometimes noise and sounds from outside of the room can be heard but it didn't disturb me. Clean, a comfortable bed, chatty hostess. Excellent Feng Shui in the house (Jukka)
