The atmospheric forest ranger’s farm in Palosaari is an ideal place for group and family gatherings. Preserving the farm's 19th century spirit was a key consideration when renovating the farm and the farmhouse which was built in 1861. The house has five rooms and a kitchen. A separate sauna building houses two twin rooms, sauna with an electric stove, two changing rooms, lounge with a fireplace and two toilets. There is also a smoke sauna (heated on request) and a campfire site in the same courtyard. Palosaari has an optical fiber network connection.

Palosaari has often served as the location for youth camps and the training of game and forestry professionals and students.

Rental cabin for 16 persons / 80 m2.

The cabin has five rooms and a kitchen. The sauna building houses the sauna facilities, two two-person bedrooms and a fireplace lounge. The cabin is available for rent from March to December.
