Cabin is not pre-heated, but it's possible to have on request for additional fee. Ilvessalo is an excellent place for small groups and fishermen. The lakes are spectacular and you can even make a boat trip from Kalkkinen to Heinola. The area is an old agricultural milieu with small gravel roads and idyllic tourism attractions. The roads are excellent for cycling. This cabin requires outdoor attitude and skills (how to make fire, for example). If you’re not sure, please consider another option. During winter a minimum of 2 days’ rental period is recommended, because heating the spacious cabin takes time. Drinking water of the spring is not examined yearly, therefore boiling of the water before use is recommended. Fridge is 60 liter, no freezebox. Only small amount of food is possible to have cold storage. Instructions can be found in the cottage. Cabin can be reached by car, but last part of the route is very steep. During winter car cannot be park in the yard since the road to the cottage is very steep. Final cleaning possible to reserve at extra fee (from owner).

    Mökki oli kuvauksen mukainen ja sijaitsi hienossa paikassa. Avainten haku oli helppoa ja palvelut kohtuullisen lähellä. Erityismaininnan ansaitsee pehmeä löylyinen sauna.
