The views from Meadow Cottage play an essential part in the atmosphere.

When Meadow Cottage was built in the field of the Silent People in 2014, the old cabin in Suomussalmi came back to life. This is a great place for travellers on Highway 5 to stop for a cup of coffee or lunch.

They are sure to taste incredible inside the log cabin by the fire. The summers in Finland can sometimes be a bit chilly so you can curl up by the fire inside the cabin with crepes and fire-roasted kettle coffee and admire the Silent People through the windows.

At Meadow Cottage, you can organise family celebrations, bachelor or hen parties, corporate team building, education and recreational activities or, for example, class reunions.

Meadow Cottage provides service for groups all year round!
Contact us and we can plan your events together!

Embrace of Mother Nature Lunch every day from 21th of June until 7th of August.

Meadow Cottage is an excellent venue for all kinds of events:


The old logs of the cottage have witnessed countless birthdays, bachelor and hen parties, retirement parties, weddings, reunions and all the emotions that come with them.

The Silent People, dressed according to each season, quietly follow these celebrations through the windows of the cottage.

The light shed on the Silent People creates a mysterious atmosphere during dark nights.

We can even plan programs for your celebrations.

These parties are truly something to remember!
