With its water views and thick forest setting, the Mökki Santara House is the ideal Finnish getaway. The cottage is located on the shores of lake Santara. Sitting on a single platform, it's comprised of two volumes — the main house and a sauna — joined by a large outdoor terrace. The picturesque Scandinavian interior offers sleeping for four plus a full kitchen, wood-burning stoves, and extensive views of the surrounding scenery. To get the most of the lakeside setting, a small deck extends over the water for swimming and fishing.
