I'm also planning a stop in Kandalaksha..
Not entirely sure about the name, but its a few kms outside of Kandalaksha on the road towards Umba, you go up a hill and a little more then halfway up the hill there is an exit to the right.
Not alot of people since its more of a ski place with a slope and a lift so low season for them when its motorcycle season:
A quite big log building.

Yes they are very anal about the solid lines even if there is a military convoy moving at walking pace russian drivers will wait until the solid line ends before passing ....we didnt wait, well some passed on the wrong side when there was a great gravel area big enough but more on that later.
No problems at any time with any police for us at least.
Back home by now and have written some on the blog
More once I have worked through the 500GB of videos.
