Introduction

Poropelto: four bedrooms, kitchen, shower, sauna + granary - 120 m²


Poropelto is a sizeable lodge situated in central Hossa, a small village in northern Kainuu munincipality. It is available for rent year-round for visiting tourists and travellers. The lodge is built to a convenient spot between the local centre of tourism (Norwide hotel / restaurant) and the Hossa national park's Visitor Centre. There's only a few kilometers to either of these locations, and the distance can be travelled by either car, hiking, or biking, and additionally by ski'ng in winter.

The lodge consists of four bedrooms plus a living room and a kitchen, along with a shower and a sauna. There's a small outbuilding in the backyard which includes a darts-board, guitar and drums.


A bit to the right from the backyard there is a small camping site outfitted with a makeshift shelter - this is an ideal place for late-evening gatherings around the campfire (although making fire during a firehazard is prohibited).

Inside the lodge there's all the modern luxuries such as running water and a sizeable oven which can be heated with firewood during autumn and winter. In addition, amongst other necessities, there's a TV and a free wireless network. Full equipment list can be found here.

New: aitta open for autumn season

During the summer maintenance, we cleaned up and furnished the old aitta (granary) for customer use. This cozy building is located just about 20 meters from the main house, near the treeline. It is made of sturdy hirsi wood, insulated, and has a small electrical heater inside, so it's well-suited for sleeping overnight even during colder late-autumn nights.

The granary is mostly intented as extra bed spaces for larger groups, adding +2 to the overall number, bringing the total available beds to 10. It can, however, be also used for anyone wanting a more exotic lodging experience, sleeping even closer to the nature than in the regular rooms of the main house.

The key to the granary can be found hanging on a wall in the kitchen, near the microwave. Just remember to lock the place afterwards and return to key to its original place. Regular cleaning instructions apply, same as the main house.
