Thank you for your stay and valuable feedback Anna-Sofia. We have incorporated it into the updated description and guest manual for our cottage.
As can be read from the guestbook at the main building, countless groups of friends from over 20 countries as well as families with children of all ages have thoroughly enjoyed their stay both in summer, winter and autumn seasons through the years.
All children should certainly be minded during their stay as the cottage is located by the lakeside and the main building consists of three floors with an additional steep flight of stairs leading from the ”normal” sauna within the building straight down to the lake for a cooling dip in the lake.
The ”Aitta” sleeping cabin is accessible by two paths, one with duckboards to ease passage and another nature path for the more adventurous. Both paths are great for picking wild blueberries as you pass by, when is season. The Aitta building offers stunning views as it is built at a higher elevation near a ledge over the pristine lake below, but in spite of many a Midsummer-Night’s Eve party lasting to the wee hours, no one has (thankfully) managed to take a dive so far. This is certainly not a place for sleep-walkers, but it is well worth a visit if you mind your step!
As we informed you before your stay, there are two saunas available for guest use. The ”normal” electric one at the main building and the wood-heated AITO-stove sauna by the lake. Instructions for use were available from your host as the wood-heated sauna does require some skill to operate properly. You may agree that the soothing sauna experience is well worth the extensive warm-up effort!
The ”special" saunas you mention consist of a traditional smoke-sauna as well as a tiny tent sauna, both of which require a degree of expertise to enable a thoroughly safe and enjoyable sauna session. It is quite common in Finland that smoke saunas are only operated by a knowledgeable host due to the greater risk of fire hazard and as our cottage is located within a nature reserve area, we must be careful to avoid any harm to come to our valued guests, the premises or surrounding nature.
Many thanks for your stay, we wish you a pleasant summer!
