Rental Information - The cabin rental essentials!

 


Cosy cabin surrounded by fresh snowWhat's included?

Your rental price includes self-catering accommodation in your chosen cabin, all furniture, fittings, cutlery and dishes, use of sauna (if applicable), electricity, water, logs, pillows, blankets and mattresses. The price may also include a rowing boat and lifejackets, barbecue hut and/or a second lakeside sauna, but please read individual cabin descriptions carefully. Before your holiday, you will also get help and advice as required from our English-Finnish speaking staff, including booking confirmations, maps and driving instructions to your cabin in English.   

 


What's excluded? 

Your rental price does not include flights, transfers, meals,
bed linen, towels and cleaning in the end of your rental (if not otherwise stated). It is however often possible to rent the bed linen and towels from the owner for an extra charge of £10 per person by prior arrangement. Also, it is customary in Finland, that everyone will bring their own washing-up liquid, soap, toilet paper and kitchen roll, but you will probably find at least some of these readily in your cabin, as people tend to leave their spare supplies for the next customer.

The number of beds in our cabin descriptions indicates the maximum number of people allowed to stay in that cabin at any one time. This number includes standard beds as well as extra beds such as those on sofa beds, camping beds or mattresses. You can of course have less than the maximum number of people staying in any cabin, the price will almost always stay the same. Please read individual cabin descriptions carefully to see the exact bedding arrangements in your chosen cabin or request more details from us.

 


Can I stay only for a few days?

All cabins offer weekly rental, but many also offer short breaks, usually outside public holidays and the high summer season of June to August. If you are interested in a short break, please contact us for availability and prices.

Some cabin owners do accept pets, that are well behaved and fully house-trained, some however do not. If you wish to take your pet with you, please read the cabin descriptions carefully to find out any possible restrictions on what type of pets are allowed or how many of them are allowed in your chosen cabin at any one time. Please note that some cabin owners choose to charge extra for pets.

 


Which day of the week does the letting period usually start and end?

Weekly rentals usually start and end on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but other days may be possible, particularly outside the high summer season and public holidays. Cabin owners we work with are often flexible and happy to accommodate a customer's preference, as long as there is availability to do so. Please ask if you would prefer to start your holiday on an alternative date to those stated in the cabin descriptions. This can often be arranged.

 


Lake view in autumnDo I have to clean the cabin when I leave?

When you leave the cabin, you must clean it thoroughly to the same state of cleanliness is was when you arrived. The standard practice is that the person staying in the cabin cleans the cabin ready for the next customer. It is however often possible to pre-order the cleaning to be done on your behalf for an extra charge, but if you leave the cabin without cleaning and have not ordered the cleaning in advance, the owners are entitled to charge you extra after you have left! 

It is very important that if you do not want to commit yourself to cleaning the cabin on your departure, you contact us before your holiday and we will arrange the cleaning service for you.

 


Am I allowed to smoke in the cabin?

No. Smoking is strictly prohibited in all log cabins and cottages in Finland as they are frequently visited by young children and those with allergies. If you want to smoke, you will need to go outdoors and walk away from the cabin doors and windows. Please dispose of all cigarettes carefully in outdoor bins and do not litter the cabin surrounds.
