On Little Pine Island, 1.5km east of the town centre (now connected by a bridge), is the House of the Four Winds, where locals snuck swigs of ‘hard tea’ (alcohol) during the Finnish prohibition (1919–32). Disturbed by the merrymaking, Field Marshal CGE Mannerheim, who had his summer cottage nearby, bought it in 1927, imported teasets from France and personally ran the place until 1931. There's a beautiful cafe and summer terrace, with granite tables carved from the surrounding rocks.
