Welcome to Yli-Kaitala!

Our family business started in the hospitality industry when we logged the wood for the first cottage from our own forest in spring 1992. The history of our estate goes back 400 years and our first sauna by the lake has been in use for 70 years. The Mankala rapids were featured in the first travel film about Finland, released in 1911.

Over the last two decades our family has built up an authentic and unique place on the shores of Kettujärvi lake. Nature, history and customers’ desires and requirements have played a central role in our expansion. Our newest holiday home, the luxury villa Auringonsilta is both heated and cooled with geothermal energy. The resourcefulness of your host can be clearly seen in the one-of-a-kind moss sauna.

Yli-Kaitala family welcomes you to the pristine landscapes of Iitti!

High quality accommodation in the beautiful Finnish countryside
Our holiday cottages, all situated by a lake, offer high standard and comfortable accommodation throughout the year. There is choice to suit everyone's needs as our eleven cottages range from smaller and more modest to five star, five bedroom luxury accommodation. The cottages are situated in Iitti in Southern Finland, approximately a hundred miles from Helsinki, about 30 miles from Lahti and another 25 miles from Kouvola. Please note, however, that the cottage number 6 is located in Nastola.

Venues for parties and conferences, meeting facilities
Come and celebrate a family wedding or organise a conference or a meeting at Yli-Kaitala's beautiful and tranquil surroundings. There are a number of venues to choose from: the atmospheric Ketunleipä restaurant or a large lounge in Pellavatupa, both in renovated old barns. You can also book one of our spacious cottages for your business meeting.

Country wedding in Ketunleipä restaurant
Ketunleipä restaurant offers an excellent venue and beautiful countryside surroundings for a wedding. The fully renovated old barn has seating for 150 people and we provide a full catering service. If you would like to hold the wedding ceremony outside, it is possible on the small and beautiful island of Lakinsaari, or you can choose the Kipinä hut.

Fishing in the river Kymi
There is no better place for fishing enthusiasts. The river Kymi and lakes Kettujärvi and Arrajärvi offer plenty of opportunities for the ultimate fishing experience. For those who would prefer guided fishing tours, our experienced outdoor guide is ready to show you where the biggest fish is caught.

Enjoy a relaxing and truly Finnish sauna experience on the shores of lake Kettujärvi with a fabulous view across the lake. In the Kettusauna you can relax in the hot tub situated on the terrace, it can be enjoyed throughout the year, and the tub fits as many as 14 people.

The brand new Sammalsauna (moss sauna with a roof covered by moss) offers a totally unique and enjoyable sauna experience with hundreds of colour changing LED lights creating the atmosphere of your choice.
