Story of Koivumäki Manor
Every year since 1792 has been full of life and laughter at Koivumäki farm. Locals and guests alike have enjoyed the Finnish nature and culture, building a unique place combining fresh food, an atmosphere of celebration, and a historic landmark.
When Gustaf Ranin bought the farm in 1869, the manor was known as a mansion for business meetings and celebrations. During manor feasts, guests danced, tables were full of food and local legends played the gramophone while the midsummer night sun shone.
That sparkling glamor still shines, glinting off of Auntie Aili's vintage piano standing regally in the corner of the main building's grand hall built in 1907. From time to time, after relaxing dinner, when freedom fills the mind, one of our guests will play a song or two... just because the heart felt like it.
We cherish that sound, those feelings, and life's memories at Koivumäki. Add your experiences to the history of Koivumäki - every time you step through the door, taste a bite of local cuisine, and laugh with your loved ones.
Surround yourself with the peaceful Savo countryside while your enjoy a long lunch, a cup of our best coffee, and celebrating life's important moments.
