    What a great home meal like lunch buffet! I'm always happy to find a vegetarian option (the local potatoes anf flounder were pretty good, too). We also found a cozy window-side corner, too.

    Edullinen, monipuolinen ja herkullinen lounas. Kotiruokatyyppinen. Kaikki laktoositonta. Lounaaseen kuuluu myös kahvi+uunituore pulla. Erittäin ystävällinen henkilökunta. Majoitus kaiken kaikkiaan siisti, toimiva ja edullinen.

    Todella maukas ja runsas lounas vaikka juuri oli iso turisti ryhmä käynyt. Erikseen tultiin vielä kysymään riittikö ja halutaanko lisää (ei tarvinnut). 🤣 En 38-vuoteen ole syönyt saaristolaisleipää mutta nyt söin. 👍🏼Omistajat myös erittäin mukavia ja rentoja.

    6/5 service! My pedal fell off my bike, and the owner kindly found and loaned me his wrench. Stayed for lunch which was pretty good too.

    Yövyttiin ja saunottiin. Lohikeitto illalla oli super hyvää. ❤️
    Lähistöllä kaunisvanha puukirkko ja jonka pihapiiristä lähti hiljentymisen polku merenrantaan. Näkymät jotka suosittelen kokemaan.

    Hyvällä sijainnilla jos houtskarissa tulee poikettua. Yläkerrassa baari. Mutta mielestäni sieltä ei kantautunut häiritsevää melua huoneeseen. Todella ystävällinen palvelu ja majoittumisen kruunasi aamupala joka oli 5/5
