Bed & Breakfast Accommodation in Rovaniemi, Lapland

Our traditional Finnish log house is located in Marrasjärvi, 57 km from the center of Rovaniemi, by the lake and in the middle of the forest, in a scenic location.

If you want peace and privacy, we offer that, but if you want to get to know us or just want to chat, we're happy to get to know new friends. The main house was built in 1934 and is made of sturdy logs in the traditional Finnish style. There are no permanent settlements nearby and the nearest neighbour is about 11 km away. There are a few summer cottages in the vicinity, but there is no line of sight to them.
"If you are looking for a genuine Finnish place and you love nature and it’s beauty this is THE place you have to visit."
The place is an absolute gem. By the side of a lake in a forest, no light pollution, in the middle of nature. Katja and Joni are wonderful and help you organise and share activities. The breakfast has plenty of different options and some delicious traditional specialities.

"A beautiful and peaceful stay with breathtaking views and experiences."

Our stay at Kotatuli was beyond what we expected. Katja, Joni, Veera and Jenna were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay - we could not have asked for nicer hosts. Every time we needed some assistance the family were super quick to respond. The views were something else - you can see the northern lights without having to pay an extortionate price with a tour company. It was very cosy and we slept so comfortably every night.

"I would recommend this place to all my friends and family."

We absolutely LOVE this place. The cabin where we slept is picture perfect, minty fresh clean. We were smitten with the cozy fireplace inside. Although it's in the middle of the forest in the cold, the heating system did a wonderful job keeping us warm. The sauna and BBQ hut give us an authentic experience of Northern Finland. The hosts were incredibly kind and went out of their way to assist us. And I save the best for last, the hosts have therapy dogs and horses. They are the loveliest creatures you will ever meet.


    The house is surrounded by 3 hectares of land and has a beautiful view of the lake from the main house window.

    There is an idyllic sauna cottage by the lake, which can be used by guests by arrangement. There is also a hut made of grey logs in the courtyard, where you can light a fire and make coffee or prepare a meal. The benches are lined with warm reindeer bedding and an open fire blazes in the middle. The municipal water system does not reach us, so the tap comes from real spring water. The best way to get here is by car. You can also ask for our transport service. Free parking in the courtyard.
    Our family includes dogs and horses that are friendly and used to visitors. However, we hope that if you want to get to know the animals, you will only do so with a member of our human family. Unfortunately, we cannot accept animal guests, so as not to expose our herd to changes in herd dynamics. Our accommodations are not suitable for guests with animal allergies.
