Rental Information - The cabin rental essentials!
Your rental price includes
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.
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.
many people can I take with me?
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.
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.
I take my pet?
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?
rentals usually start and end on a Friday, Saturday or
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.
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!
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.
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.
