The history of Karolineburg since 1836

During its history, the Kainuu region has claimed only one true manor house in its area. This rare building has endured time well and celebrated its 180th birthday in 2016.

To begin with, the location of the present manor house was occupied by a croft named Joutava belonging to the Tuovila farm. The judicial district judge of Kajaani, Fredrik Calamnius, bought the land in 1835. In 1836, at the age of 48, Calamnius married 24-year-old Karolina Kristina Stenroth. The same year, he built a house to start the construction of the main building, which included seven bedrooms, a kitchen, an entrance hall, a cloakroom, a wine cellar and, of course, a large parlour. He named the manor house Karolineburg after his wife, Karolina.

After Calamnius’ untimely passing in 1840, the manor house changed owners several times until the beginning of the 1990s, when Karolineburg was transformed into a manor house hotel. Today, Manor House Hotel Karolineburg can be described as a beautiful European style family hotel, offering accommodation for 50 guests and restaurant facilities for 100 people – a perfect location for events and conferences.
