KITCHEN AND GRILLING
The cottage has a modest kitchen with wood burning stove and dishes for six. You can also prepare food on the gas stove in the summer kitchen. The water comes from the lake, which is suitable for washing dishes. Drinking water can be obtained from a well on the mainland near the parking lot. Please note that the solar panel refrigerator is small and only holds a small amount of food and drink at a time. Therefore, it is good to have dry food and camp food.
SAUNA, SHOWER AND toilet
There is an ecological, composting outdoor toilet in the cottage yard. The wood-heated log sauna on the beach gives a nice soft steam. There is no shower in the sauna or cottage. The water in the sauna is heated in a separate pot. Washing takes place in the sauna. Sand has been added to the bottom of the lake in front of the beach sauna, so it is nice to take a dip to swim.
YARD AND BEACH
We have wanted to keep the place as natural as possible. The lake is naturally dark watered and great for both swimming and fishing. Rowing boats take you to the peaceful Niemijärvi. We can provide you with boating vests if you wish - please let us know what size you need.
If you want to fish and you are 18-64, you must pay the state fisheries management fee. Example prices: 6e / 1 day, 15e / 7 day. The most convenient way to make a payment is through the Eräluvat online store. You can also rent a quiet electric outboard motor from us for 15eur a day.
