From the island it’s possible to see the harbour of the nearby city and the boats that are passing by.
The holiday cottage Lauren (100m2) has one floor. There are two separate bedrooms on the sunrise side of the villa, a sauna, a washing room with a shower, a dressing room and a kitchen connected to a sitting room. In the sauna there is an atmosphere of a smoke sauna, because of the grey walls and an electric soapstone sauna stove.

On Mikonsaari Island and in the cottage Lauren you will enjoy your time. The blue Lake Saimaa is perfect for fishing or just enjoying the peacefulness. Customers can explore the water area around the islands by rowing boat. In autumn the autumn colours make unforgettable views which reflect on the surface of the water. In rainy days the warmth of the fireplace and the sauna will make everybody feel better. Mikonsaari Island is known for its good terrain of mushrooms, so mushroom and berry picking is a good way to spend a day. In winter it’s good to ski and take a tour on the sledge on the ice. The best way to enjoy your picnic lunch both in summer and winter is in front of the campfire. Come and experience it by yourself!
