There is never a shortige of cultural events in Tallinn.

“Heimelig - like a home far away your 'real' home”
A very cosy and comfortable cottage with a great sauna and everything you need (including a small kitchen and wood burning stove). I rented it for myself, but there is enough space for a couple. The perfect place to retreat and relax, right on the outskirts of Tallinn. And Eneken is a very nice host, always willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
“Eneken goes the extra mile to make her guests feel comfortable.”
I stayed here with my mother while visiting extended family in Nomme and Tallinn. The cottage was the ideal size for two people for two weeks. The sauna is great and the cottage is warm and comfortable and everything is in perfect order. When we visited our family nearby we used the bicycles available at the cottage - very pleasant riding since there a few cars on the roads (compared to where I'm from - Oxford, UK!). The bus stop is a five minute walk, near the supermarket, and the buses, although infrequent, are reliable, cheap and comfortable and you get a good sense of Soviet Tallinn as you approach the city. Nomme is called "Forest City" by the locals and the spacious private villas built in patches of cleared forest attest to that. I would highly recommend staying here if you want easy access to Tallinn's beautiful Old Town and fantastic museums as well as the ability to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax surrounded by forests and nature.
Dear Anna, thank you so much, it was a pleasure to have you and Anita with us. I hope, we see you again :)
“A cosy log cabin in a great location.”
If you are looking for somewhere convenient then this is a lovely log cabin, on the outskirts of Tallinn with good transport links to the centre of town. Our host Eneken was charming and attentitive; the property is at the bottom of her garden in a leafy suburb a short distance away from the forest. The accomodation was really cosy. It has everything you could need for a day or a month. Everything was spotlessly clean and the attention to detail to ensure a self contained stay was very high. It really is 'self contained' with a sauna and wet room/shower area, open plan kitchen dining and living space. The sleeping space upstairs was great fun and gave a really authentic feel to the cabin. Little things that would appeal to a sensitive fair skinned person like mosquito netting on doors and windows makes a lot of difference when the weather is a lovely as it was when we stayed! I really could not think of a negative thing to say about this stay. Kids would love it as well.
“Perfect place, wonderful people !”
