The history of the Haikko manor dates back to 1362 when a Dominican monastery owned the site. Jöns Olafsson Stenbock bought the manor and Haikko was a residence of Stenbock family for next 400 years. In 1871 it was bought by general Sebastian von Etter. Several members of the Russian Imperial family visited Haikko because von Etter was a close friend to czar Nicholas II. During the revolution in 1917 Grand Duke Kiril´s eldest son Wladimir was born and christened at Haikko. He was the nearest aspirant to the imperial crown of Russia and he became later the head of the Romanov family.

Current main building was built in 1913. The Vuoristo family purchased the manor in 1965. Today Haikko provides conference center, spa and hotel facilities.

We had 1 day at hotel Haikko. There is 20 rooms in the mansion but the other 180 rooms are beside hotel haikko in the spa section. Our room in the spa building was clean and comfortable. Huge plus on the AC on our room. The breakfast is in the mansion and it was really nice.

The grounds and mansion were gorgeous and beautifully maintained. Ate at the restaurant. Had the grilled salmon, with potatoes and beets. Dessert was a lovely parfait.

Loved the place way too much! Don't see any reason to give anything less than 5 stars. The spa session was amazing, the food was good and the location? The locality was beautiful with so much nature and the sea right next to the manor ❤️?

Wonderful place in! Nice and peaceful surroundings with lots of cultural history and heritage around. Kitchen exceeded the expectations in the get-together dinner we had there. Also the conference center services were well organized taken the Corona safety into consideration.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
