In the past Oronmylly was a well-known mill in Karelia dating back to around 1650 when it got permission for dam and milling operations. The stream starts from a few hundred meters away from the Heralampi pond. The water springs up from the bottom of the pond. In 1962 Oronmylly became a Christian center when the owner Aate-Pekka Anttonen donated the mill and the surrounding area for the purpose.
You are warmly welcome to enjoy the famous spirit of Oronmylly. It means hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, space to breathe.
