I think it's a great idea hiring a cottage to spend a weekend with your friends. In addition, you should try boat trips throught Baltic Sea, as you can party cheaper in them!

Personal comments
It was great: I shared the appartment with a Finnish girl and a Chinese girl, and we got on very well. The place was confortable and we kept it clean, and we managed very well with sharing every task at home.
