This place turns your vacation into a self-contained experience that is better enjoyed in person.

We invite you to take a little imaginative trip to this amazing estate, after which you are likely to feel like visiting it in person.
The unique atmosphere of Ladoga Manor is provided not only by the unique nature of Karelia, which surrounds the village. An integral part of the charm of this land is its rich past, woven into its present. In 1880 the landowner Oskar Nissinen bought this land, and already in 1892, here was built farmstead, around which in time have appeared other buildings (livestock complex, a wooden barn, a house for workers, a workshop, a mill, and more).
The Nissinen family created an effective multi-profile farm, were engaged in multi-faceted social activities, made a great contribution to the development of agriculture and science. In the 1930s, the manor house became a tourist attraction, and during World War II, it was in the war zone. With the advent of peacetime, Ladoga Manor served as a labor colony and medical facility. In the 1990s, some of the manor’s structures were recognized as historical and cultural monuments.
The new life of the homestead began in 2011 with the beginning of repair and restoration, a process that continues to this day. Modern Ladoga Manor is a premium hotel complex located on the shore of Niemeliansalmi Bay of magnificent Lake Ladoga. Surrounded by the charms of the Karelian landscape and limitless opportunities to enjoy its eco-friendly nature, the estate offers luxurious accommodations and delightful activities for all its guests. To get to Ladoga Manor, you can order a transfer by a comfortable Mercedes minibus or by helicopter, which will take you to the only registered helipad in southern Karelia, which is located on the property grounds.
