The newly renovated guest house Kevvai opened its doors to visitors in December 2005. Kevvai guest house is situated on the bank of the natural 69 hectare lake Jõksi, amidst a picturesque and versatile nature of Kanepi. A major advantage of our guest house is its privacy and cosiness, as well as splendid opportunities for sporting and spending leisure time with friends and family all year around. In addition, we are available for hosting conferences, seminars and training for up to 50 people. Our guest house has also hosted many birthday parties, gatherings and weddings throughout the years! 

We offer you:

  • Accommodation

There are four suites in our guest house, which can accommodate up to 20-25 people. There is a bathroom with a shower and  WiFi in each room. On the first floor, there is a spacious living room with an open fireplace, the dining hall and sauna with a luxurious massage-tub. From the first floor, a door leads to the sun-terrace with a magnificent view to the lake.    Our guest house offers breakfast for our guests at their own request and preference.  In the summer when the weather is good, our sun-terrace is always open for serving breakfast. 

  • Smoke Sauna

You can enjoy our 125 year old authentic smoke sauna which accommodates 10 people at once.  To cool off, you can jump into the lake right next to the sauna. We also offer an introduction to the practices of using the smoke sauna and an overview of it’s history.

  • Finnish Sauna

 After a tiresome day, guests can relax in the wood-heated sauna and massage-tub . The sauna complex is connected to a private terrace where there are lounging chairs and a magnificent view of the lake. 

  • Conference packages

Our main dining area can easily be set up as a conference space. Upon reservation, we are also available to cater large groups, be it buffe-style or a rich celebratory feast. The conference packet includes both coffee breaks and catering upon request.  The guest house’s 6 hectare land can successfully be used for large outdoor events. Our guests can order fireworks for special occasions and why not cover the lake with sparkling candles to create a magical atmosphere?

  • Camping and picnic spots

There is much to do at our guest house! To pass time in the summer, we have our very own camping and caravan spots on the bank of the lake and in the woods. Guests can throw a picnic or a barbecue at our special bonfire area in the woods, where there of course is a view to the lake. Guests can order catering from the tourism farm but there is also a possibility to fish and catch your own food and prepare it on an open fire. 
We also encourage our guests to take a hike into Kanepi’s magnificent nature. 

  • Rent a boat

We have two boats for rent and fishing equipment

We welcome you!
