The cottage has an eco-friendly, composting outdoor toilet. The traditional lakeside sauna is shared with our other rental cottage. The sauna comes with cold water from the lake and is heated in the tank on the side of the stove. Sauna heating takes less than an hour, after which you can enjoy!
There is no shower, but washing is done in the sauna with water that is traditionally mixed in a bath. Heating and sauna shifts have always been agreed flexibly between neighbours. For example, sauna shifts can be implemented by first having the sauna warmed by the cabin warmers, and then by the neighbour.
