Mäntyharju - Finland


This website is to preserve the beautiful memory of Mäntymotelli and Ravintola Pino which have been closed since 2021.
We still rent the cottages. Please call to inquire.   


Travel back in time!


About us

Mäntymotelli offers a wonderful opportunity to travel back in time. We worked very hard to preserve this legendary treasure in the style of the 70s and the 80s.

David Lynch, Aki Kaurismäki and Stanley Kubrick would be more than impressed.

Aside from the interiors and the architecture, a magnificent, wild scenery of lake Peruvesi shores is there to charm our guests.     


Delicious authentic Italian food, a gigantic dance floor, live music and karaoke singing (when the famous virus allows it), lovely enthusiastic staff, a cocktail bar with a very creative mixologist, saunas, water activities, fishing all year around, our retro gym and swimming pool (we are planning to fill it up in February 2021), cosy accommodations, hiking paths, winter cross country ski, tennis court, volleyball, noctilucent clouds in July, aurora borealis in winter… This is just to start the list of what is awaiting for you in Mäntymotelli.     

We welcome pets, so feel free to come along with your fluffy friends! 

Welcome to the second oldest motel of Finland

No upcoming events at the moment


There are cottages and rooms of all sorts of capacity in Mäntymotelli: three separated houses for up to 8 people with private access to the lake, smaller cottages on the shore and many, many, many, many rooms. We even have “David Lynch suite” with a real enamelled bathtub, an old TV and VHS, little electric sauna and

a ghost. We call him Aurelién; he is harmless.

Ravintola PINO


❤ Art

Take a look of this beautiful music video of a singer-songwriter Annabella Anundi shot in Mäntymotelli in Autumn 2020.

Artists and creatives, don't hesitate to contact us for a collaboration.


On Saturday the 25th of July 2020 the restaurant of Mäntymotelli, Ravintola Pino, opened its doors, followed by the bar. Our menu is based on authentic Italian fayre. The ingredients come all the way from Italy, including flour, cheese and charcuterie; we then fuse it with fish we source in Kissakoski, beef from Rekola farm in Pertunmaa, pork from Kuvala, vegetable, berries, mushrooms, dairy foraged locally. 


Fancy organising your own event in Mäntymotelli? Let's make it happen.
