Estonia is one of these places that doesn't boast with billion dollar views. We don't have the highest mountains or the brightest city lights but we do have something that is even more rare - peace. As a local, I strongly recommend going slightly off the beaten path and staying in family owned guest houses and eco-farms. These are the places where modern culture beautifully mixes with the old traditions of hunting and gathering and people are still as pure as the untouched nature around them. Here are some of my favourite magical spots to stay at.

Orjaku Mõisakoha Holiday House

Hiiu maakond, Orjaku küla

Another magical island - Hiiumaa, offers quite a historical site to stay at. Next to the Orjaku Manor House built in 1603, Orjaku Mõisakoha Holiday House offers several traditional Estonian things to do - like sauna evenings and fish smoking. I swear there's nothing more delicious than freshly caught Estonian island fish on a toast - and many of my urban dwelling/world traveling foodie friends would agree.  The island of Hiiumaa is a gem in itself as the nature is breath taking and the locals are known for their extremely relaxed attitudes about life and off kilter sense of humour.

This place is truly unique. Offering unbelievable nature watching in all directions, the visitor gets to stay in a real ancient windmill - a romantic symbol of Saaremaa. It is located on Sõrve peninsula close to the Ohessaare cliffs where the waves crash against the shoreline and the sun shines for 2200 hours a year.
