TravelScapes, STYLE & COMFORT
The Ranch is easily accessible, not least as a consequence of its private helipad as well as the well-paved approach road, yet its exquisite and quintessentially Finnish natural setting is absolutely secluded and secure.
From the moment you enter the imposing pine arch marking the entrance to the Ranch it’s clear you are about to experience something special. Finland has thousands of idyllic country homes and cabins dotted around the shores of its plentiful lakes and meandering coasts, but the Ranch is several rungs above them, in terms of hospitality, services, facilities, comfort, privacy and just about everything else.
As the two villas, clubhouse and coastal sauna buildings that comprise the Ranch complex emerge from the dense mat of greenery, the enchanting and reassuring seclusion will quickly become obvious when you are approaching the Ranch. The larger Villa, forming the main house of 500m2, can be found at the end of illuminated forest roads, concealed by the lush woodland, enhancing a sense of privacy. The villa is overlooking onto the private lake, well stocked for fishing and equipped with rowing boats. The fresh lake water here is probably the cleanest in Europe, and on hand for a refreshing dip at any time. The house features own separate sauna close to the shore, with capacious changing and relaxing rooms and a roaring open fire.
SECURITY AND SERVICE
At the Ranch you’ll always have a butler, a private host and a housekeeper on hand, in addition to the chef. TravelScapes Action is proud for selecting Finland’s top chefs to attend to your needs and wishes. Furthermore, additional security staff can be arranged and accommodated in separate buildings.
HORSE POWER AND LIVING FROM THE EARTH
In the very close proximity from the Ranch entrance there’s a wellequipped, private and professional horse stable, hence horse-back riding is always an option.
You are at liberty to relax in total privacy without even leaving their Villa. You can browse the giant numbered-edition Helmut Newton photography volume, Sumo, or admire ingenious mosaics by digital artist Robert Silvas. Taste and typically restrained Nordic style characterize The Ranch environment.
THE PLACE TO STAY ACTIVE
At The Ranch you can engage in a wide and exciting variety of activities if they wish. There are tennis courts and a basketball court, as well as a well-equipped gym, and an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) circuit through the surrounding woods. The lake is stocked with perch, pike-perch and pike for leisurely and fruitful row-boat fishing outings, while in late summer and autumn the surrounding forest is carpeted with blueberries and lingonberries as well as a variety of edible mushrooms and wild herbs, all of them free to pick
Menus can be devised according to dietary requirements and special requests, and the chef is always happy to introduce local Finnish ingredients, including fish, in-season game meat such as elk or duck, berries, mushrooms and fresh rye breads. You can naturally state your own menu preferences to which the chef will adhere, and we always welcome you to get involved in cooking and learning about the ingredients local to the region.
The Ranch welcomes you to enjoy ultimate privacy while reconnecting with the surrounding nature, and it may take you by surprise how quick you can forget the world outside of the Ranch.
