During the intensive renovation period in 2015 we tried to preserve the old times log building traditions so that you could sense the 60 years old log house spirit. Maybe you can still imagine the lumber jacks going to the forest early morning and getting back in the evening, after hard working day. They truly worked hard here for their daily bread.
Renovated Evo Wilderness Villa is nearly 200 m2 large and consits of open kitchen with dining or meeting places for up to 18 persons, 5 bedrooms with 12 bed places and 6 solid extra beds. In addition the main building has electrically heated sauna, dressing rooms and bathroom with shower.
