Accommodation information

50 km to the north from Kajaani, 13 km to the west from Paltamo municipality center, lake Oulujärvi (Paltaselkä) 15 m, shallow beach, small rocks on bottom, pier, own rowing boat. Boat and pier can be used till end of September. Small wilderness log cabin, built in 1995. Living room with sofa bed, kitchen (no door), alcove with built-in bed (width 120 cm) and covered porch. Separate sauna with steam room, dressing area and porch. Water to the sauna can be pumped by pump located on the porch. Water can be heated in tank connected to wood-burning sauna stove. Composting toilet. Lean-to shelter and campfire site, also a griddle pan available. Points to note for winter time (October-May) bookings: - During the winter season (around 1.10. - 30.5.) the pier and the boat are in use whenever the weather permits. It is good to be prepared for the fact that after September until the beginning of May the pier and the boat will not be available. During this time, the pier is on the beach and can be an aesthetic nuisance, however, it does not prevent being at the cottage. - The water pump is closed at the pier, so during the time mentioned above you have to make a whole to the ice and carry the water yourself from the lake to the sauna. - If it is more than -10 degrees below zero, the cabin must be heated quite a lot. In this case, booking is only recommended for experienced winter wilderness campers. - In winter, the cottage road is plowed, but the cottage otherwise does not have regular winter maintenance. There can be a lot of snow on the paths at the cabin, so the customer has to do snow work to make it easier to move around.

    Hieno rauhallinen paikka mistä löytyi kuvauksia vastaava erämökki. Saunassa oli todella hyvät löylyt ja mahtava näköala järvelle.

  • Riina H, Joulukuu 2023

    Sauna oli hyvä ja rantaan lyhyt matka. Pihassa monipuoliset mahdollisuudet eri aktiviteetteihin, kuten laavuiluun, kesällä veneilyyn ja talvella avantouintiin.

  • Milla S, Lokakuu 2023

    Saunasta sai todella hyvät löylyt, kauniit maisemat.
