Ylä-Tuuhonen Farm

You are warmly welcome to Ylä-Tuuhonen Farm

We invite you to relax at Ylä-Tuuhonen Farm in the picturesque countryside scenery of Tuuhoskylä village in Ruovesi, Finland. Our almost 400-year-old ancestral home is surrounded by Lake Tarjanne, lush spruce forests and rich fields.

At our farm lives also the Finnish Lapphund Käpy, three country cats: Kaino, Lylle and Mustasormi and a small flock of sheep. The sheep graze the traditional biotope areas near the yard of our farm.

Stay at a farm

Our traditional accommodation provides a unique atmosphere that guarantees you a restful night’s sleep. Stay in a charming room in the guesthouse or book your stay in our old storehouse cabin. A true, idyllic countryside experience awaits!

Enjoy homecooked food

Our country breakfast includes organic oatmeal from the farm’s own grain and rolls baked by the lady of the house. The scents of traditional and tasty homecooked classics waft from our dinner table. We can also customise our menu according to your dietary restrictions, please book your meals in advance.

Relax in the sauna

In the summertime, you can relax in our lakeside saunas by the glistening Lake Tarjanne. In the winter, we heat up the sauna in the Saunatupa building in our courtyard. The wood for heating our saunas comes from the farm’s own forest. Let go of stress and rush in the lingering heat of our traditional smoke sauna!

Activities in surrounding areas

Borrow the farm’s rowing boat and fall in love with the lakeside scenery of northern Pirkanmaa. Hike in Helvetinjärvi National Park or in Siikaneva swamp area and soak in the versatile scenery of nature in Ruovesi. Experience a wide variety of culture, arts, and music in Ruovesi or near municipalities. We warmly recommend a visit to the childhood landscapes of the farmers wife, Mänttä, as well as getting to know the area’s most diverse art exhibitions in the Serlachius museums.

On our website, we have compiled activities, things to see and experience from the immediate vicinity of the farm to nearby municipalities. When you are planning your holiday in northern Pirkanmaa, please turn to us for tips and recommendations!

Activities at the farm

Our beach is located approximately 400 metres away from the farm courtyard. When you want to get to know the stunning scenery of Lake Tarjanne, you can find a rowing boat and a wide canoe from the shore that are at your disposal. If you want to rent the rowing boat or canoe for the entire day, we charge a small extra fee.

In the winter, when the weather is nice, the farm has a few traditional kicksleds available for you to use.

Indulge in pure and traditional flavours

Start your day with the farm’s delicious country breakfast or take a seat at our traditional dinner table – delicacies made by the farm staff are available upon order. Breakfast and dinner are served in the farm’s main house as buffet service. In the summer, we ring the farm’s old dinner bell, and its cheery chime invites you to enjoy a hearty meal.

At the dinner table, we make use of our own produce and ingredients from local producers and turn them into delicious, traditional dishes. Some of the ingredients we use are also organic.
