Geocache Description:

Tämä on helppo peruskätkö kauniin Tuusulanjärven maisemissa ja löydettävissä myös talvella. Pienet matkalaiset ovat tervetulleita. Paikalle on helppo tulla ja parkkitilaa löytyy runsaasti. Alue on jästiherkä päivisin, iltaisin on helpompi puuhastella rauhassa.

Kätkökohteena oleva kokoushotelli Gustavelund on entinen ratsutila, jonka kunniakas historia ulottuu 1500-luvulle. Vanha kartano on vaihtunut nykyaikaiseen ja valoisaan hotelliin. Gustavelundin ensimmäinen omistaja 1540-1558 oli Sipi Jaakonpoika, ja häntä seuranneiden joukosta löytyy arvokkaita sotilassukuja Ehrnroothista Spåreen ja De la Gardiehin. Siihen aikaan paikka tunnettiin Eggertasin ratsutilana. Gustavelund sai nimensä 1700-luvulla silloisen omistajansa, kontra-amiraali Karl Adolf Dankvardin puolison, Gustava-rouvan mukaan. Ratsutilan päärakennuksen suunnitteli Engel. Alkuperäinen päärakennus paloi 1892 ja tilalle rakennettiin uusi - myös "Engelin tyyliin". Gustavelundiin tultiin komeasta, neljän muuripilarin muodostamasta portista. Siitä aukesi koivukuja, jonka päässä oli valkoinen empiretyylinen päärakennus. 1917-1930 Karl Edvard Jonsson sai Gustavelundin kukoistamaan. Laajoissa kasvihuoneissa ja puutarhassa hän kasvatti erilaisia tuotteita ravintoloita varten. 1933 varatuomari Rafael Sederholm Viola-puolisonsa kanssa aloitti hotellitoiminnan, joka jatkui vilkkaana aina 1950-luvulle asti. 30-luvulla Gustavelund olikin helsinkiläisten suosittu retkikohde. 1956 Maalaiskuntien liitto osti Gustavelundin ja siitä tehtiin kurssikeskus. Myöhemmin (1965) se vihittiin Kunnallisopistoksi. Vanha kartano purettiin 1964 ja tilalle arkkitehti Into Pyykkö suunnitteli uuden, nykyisen valkoisen päärakennuksen. Vuosien mittaan sitä on laajennettu, rakennettu erillinen hotelliosa ja rantarakennus. Vanhasta kartanosta on jäljellä huvimaja, joka vieläkin tarjoaa varjoisan lepopaikan Gustavelundin pihalla.

In English:

This is an easy cache by the beautiful Tuusulanjärvi and small Travel Bugs are welcome. Area is easy to reach by a car and there is plenty of parking space. The cache is just by Gustavelund Hotel and Conference Centre, which is a former manor with an illustrious history stretching back to the 16th century. The old manor house has been transformed into a bright, modern hotel. The first owner of Gustavelund from 1540 to 1558 was Sipi Jaakonpoika, and subsequent owners included the renowned military families Ehrnrooth, Spåre and De la Gardie. At that time the place was known as Eggertas Manor. In the 18th century manor was named Gustavelund by the owner Rear Admiral Karl Adolf Dankvard's wife Gustava. The famous architect Carl Ludvig Engel designed 
the main building of the estate. The original main building burned down in 1892 and was replaced by a new building in “Engel’s style”. An imposing gateway with four pillars stood at the entrance to the estate. From there, a birch-lined driveway led to the white Empire-style main building. The period 1917 to 1930 was Gustavelund’s heyday. The then owner, Karl Edvard Jonsson, grew fruit and vegetables in the large greenhouses and gardens for sale to restaurants. In 1933 Rafael Sederholm, LLM and his wife Viola opened a hotel, which flourished until the 1950’s. Even in the 1930’s Gustavelund was a popular place for excursions by residents of Helsinki. In 1956 Gustavelund was acquired by the Union of Finnish Rural Municipalities, which turned it into a course centre. Later on, in 1965, it became the Local Government College. The old manor house was demolished in 1964 and was replaced by the present white main building, designed by the architect Into Pyykkö. It has been enlarged over the years, and a separate hotel section and lakeside building have been added. The original manor’s summerhouse still stands and offers a shaded resting place in the area of Gustavelund.
