Jeris Winter Cottage Type A
Hotel Jeris occupies an enviable location which is 20 kilometres from the nearest village and is located directly on the shores of Lake Jerisjärvi. It is this remote position that makes the hotel an enchanting forest retreat.
The hotel is owned and run by the Pietikäinen family, who also manage the neighbouring sister hotels of Harriniva and Torassieppi.
Their hotels are some of our most popular accommodation options in Finland, having received high praise for their knowledgeable guides and exciting activity options.
The hotel consists of a central building and 32 winter cottages in the adjacent forest.
- Your meals will be served in the hotel restaurant, which offers a rustic menu of traditional and local Finnish dishes. Meals are served buffet style with one or two options for each course. Guests can enjoy local delicacies, such as salmon and reindeer. The hearty food here is ideal for setting you up for your adventures in the snow
- There is a small lounge area where guests can relax in the evening and take advantage of the hotel's free Wi-Fi. Tea and coffee are also available for guests at reception (payable locally). If staying in one of the hotel bedrooms, we would advise taking a travel kettle
- A significant feature of Hotel Jeris is the wonderful spa pools, which can be found on the lakeshore after a short walk from the main hotel building. The two small spa pools offer a delightful view across the frozen lake. There are two saunas (including a traditional smoke sauna which is heated twice weekly). For those who wish to experience a Finnish tradition, there is also an illuminated ice pool to take a dip in following the sauna (you do need to be in good physical shape). Spa area entry is included in the majority of our trips (see what's included for details), but if not you can book entry via the reception for a daily fee
- A small selection of souvenirs are available for guests to purchase (including postcards and local handicrafts and snacks) in the reception area
The Type A Winter Cottages (36 square metres) are generally located around a 10-minute walk from the main hotel building. The cottages are ideal for couples looking for a private retreat.
The cottages can vary slightly in size but all can sleep two to four people. They consist of one spacious room with a sleeping alcove for two people and a pull out sofa bed for two more. All the cottages are privately owned; consequently, the decor and style can vary. Each cottage contains a cosy wood burning stove, a kitchenette, a television, a shower room and a private sauna.
Cabin guests will receive a small ‘starter pack’ of firewood. Further wood supplies can be purchased locally for approximately 10 euros.
Please note: a limited number of hairdryers are available to borrow from reception.
