The Pihkapirtti cottage is right in the middle of the park, on the shore of the Mustalampi pond. It’s a blue log cabin built in the 1990s. The picture-perfect location on the lakeshore is due to the opposite Mustavuori hill.
The rooms and the yard
Pihkapirtti is a log cabin built in the 1990s. There is a kitchen, a spacious main room, a sauna, a bedroom and a sleeping balcony. There is a dry toilet, a tipi-like hut and two benches outside in the yard and a swimming dock on the lakeshore. It can be used all year around, but we don’t usually rent it out in the winters.

Cleanliness, the final cleaning up and the trash
The tenant is responsible for the cleanliness of the cottage, the yard and the cottage amenities. The cottage must be cleaned carefully before leaving, so the next guest can enjoy their visit too.
The Pihkapirtti cottage follows the litter-free hiking guideline. You can put bio waste into the dry toilet and burn any burnable materials (do not burn packages with aluminium and other metals). Don’t leave anything for the next guest to burn. Everything else you must take with you. Do not leave anything edible to the cottage.
Housebroken dogs that are under 52cm in height are allowed in the Pihkapirtti cottage. The owner is responsible for the covering of the beds and blankets if the dog likes to sleep in bed. Try not to let the dog scrape the floors. Please make sure to clean away any dog hairs from the rugs and the rooms upon departure.
If dogs relieve themselves in the yard, the waste must be picked up and taken to the forest behind the dry toilet.
Please tell us the breed and the size of the dog when making your reservation. Please read the “Pets” section in the terms and conditions before making a booking.
P.S. If the dog is bigger than 50cm, we recommend Kuutinkämppä.
