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. The customer must switch the fridge on arrival at the cottage. Instructions can be found in the cottage. Outdoor privy is chemical toilet.

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).

Parasta oli puhdas järvi, kaunis luonto ja yksinkertainen perinteinen hirsimökki. Keittiö ja grillipaikka olivat viehättäviä. Pidimme lisäksi kylän keskustasta ja upeista maalaismaisemista. Laituri kaipaisi hieman kunnostusta. Mökkirakennuksen alla olevaa tavaramäärää olisi hyvä karsia ja mökin sisältäkin voisi

The cottage itself was great. Cozy living/bed room, large beds (each could easily fit two people if they like each other), nice surroundings.nnThe only bad experience and reason for the missing star is our experience picking up the key: The key is supposed to be picked up from a local supermarket, and the driving

Paikassa on selvästi 60-70 luvun tunnelma. Eli puilla lämmittäminen loi kotoisan tunnelman ja tiskit piti virutella kahdesssa paljussa joten ei päässyt aika tulemaan pitkäksi. Kirkasvetinen järvi antoi tarpeeksi kalaa joten kalapihvien tekeminen onnistui mainiosti. Paikkaa ei voi suositella liikuntaesteisille
