The log-built main house of Iittala’s Solbacka farm was completed in 1907. The main building was built as the official residence and home of cabin master Gustaf Alfred Hultgren. The financier was Iittala Glassworks, which desperately wanted mr. Hultgren as an employee for the factory. The cabin masters were and still are respected master glassblowers.
The farm’s Guest House Guesthouse Solbacka Iittala was completed in 1973. For decades, the glass factory had already attracted a lot of corporate guests, and that’s why the factory decided to build a guest sauna with representative fireplace rooms on the Solbacka farm it owned. Architect Juhani Kivikoski, later one of the managers of the glass factory, was responsible for the design.
Guesthouse Solbacka, located in the courtyard of our home, was taken over for accommodation in February 2020. We renovated the guest apartment with sauna and fireplace rooms while respecting the old, and renovated all the guesthouse rooms in autumn 2019.
Welcome to our Guesthouse. We are located in the village of Iittala, next to the glass factory. See detailed arrival instructions here.

Guesthouse Solbacka met expectations very well, excellent location, especially if using public transport and very private atmosphere even when staying with the same yard as the owners. Especially the interior of the fireplace room and the kitchen corner is very beautiful. Good steam in the traditional wood sauna.
A wonderful hospitable welcome awaited us ex tempore tourists. The wood-heated sauna was pre heated on our request and the sauna was incomparable. The accommodation were just right for us and our own peace was guaranteed. I highly recommend.
The steam in the wood sauna, the green garden and the friendly hosts made our stay memorable. The house is cozily decorated, it was nice to sit on the terrace between saunas and after the sauna at dusk. Ball grill in the yard and a short distance to local services. A good location for active movement in the surrounding area. We ourselves played several courses of golf, for which this accommodation was absolutely perfect. The beds were soft and the whole group enjoyed the sleep. Thank you!
A very cozy guest house in a quiet location, everything you need for a relaxing stay is available. Excellent sauna, fluffy towels, beds are comfortable and soft. We rarely travel, but the feeling was the same as spending the night with your beloved grandmother. I liked everything very much!
