"Dessert on the Terrace" Sipoo Things to Do Tip by starship
Sipoo Things to Do: 11 reviews and 25 photos
Instead of being served our dessert in the Manor's upstairs dining room, we were lead downstairs through the parlor and into the family dining room where Anita's mother herself served us a delicious slice of cake topped with wild berries found on the farm. We then took our desserts to the large covered terrace where we were served coffee and tea, and once again had more time to enjoy the colorful scenery of the property including flowers and a small pond and the other small buildings edging the property.
It is pretty clear that hosting tour groups at the Manor House and farm and offering a Finnish lunch to tourists has been a good way to supplement the incomes of Anita's family, maintain the farm, and offer some gracious hospitality to people who are truly interested in the Finnish way of life. Anita and her family have made coming to the farm a very pleasant afternoon interlude for us and I was glad to have been there.
