Teacher’s apartment

The atmospheric little former teacher’s apartment is a 52-square-foot one-bedroom apartment that has been renovated respecting the original spirit of the school.

Atmospheric and peaceful accommodation

The teacher’s apartment is located upstairs in Wanha School in its own peace. It is well suited for e.g. for small families. Sleeping places can be found for 4 + 2.


The basic equipped kitchen has all the necessary cooking utensils as well as a dining table, refrigerator, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and cutlery for the whole group.

The living room has a flat-screen TV and a large sofa bed that is comfortable to sit back to relax at the end of a busy day. The living room also has a sofa bed that can accommodate a double bed for 2.


The bedroom has a double bed and a bunk bed, which means it can sleep a total of 4 people.

The old-time wooden sauna downstairs is used by the residents of the teacher's apartment

The teacher’s apartment has its own toilet. The shower facilities are located on the ground floor of the school, where guests have access to a shower and a large old-fashioned wooden sauna “Thunderstorm”.

In addition, you can book a traditional log sauna in the courtyard if you wish.

It is a short distance to the many possibilities of Tahko, but you can stay here in peace. Atmospheric and nostalgic former school building. Beautiful apartment.


A family of 5 people came to Tahko for a holiday and stayed in the teacher's apartment. The place was really good! Clean and tidy, everything you needed was found in the kitchen and more. Communication with hosts is quick and easy. The sauna got good steam after a day of skiing.


School yard and environment

The yard area offers opportunities for a wide range of leisure activities, both for adults and children.

In summer, you can use e.g. a football pitch and a fair-sized campfire. For children you will find a large trampoline, a wooden climbing hut, a slide, a sandbox, swings and a cable car.

At your disposal are children’s bicycles and in winter sledges and sliders. We also have some children’s skis and ski boots that you are free to borrow.
