Do not put your toilet in the sewers and you do not have anything in the washbasins, which naturally and naturally do not belong to them, thank you very much!


It is essential that all doors and windows of the cabins will be carefully closed/locked. For example the back door and balcony door of Old Pine Log House and the outdoor sauna, toilet of the Old Farm Storehouse (Koirala) and Old Pine Log House should always be double checked.

The customer is responsible for the general cleaning of Pykälä during and after their stay. If we find the cabin not properly cleaned after a visit, we will send the customer a further invoice stating the actual cleaning expenses. Please leave the cabins as tidy as you'd also like to find them after the previous customers. Due to long distances maintenance cannot always check the cabins after all customers.

If you have booked Whole Pykala (Koko Pykälä), please make sure that the dishes, cutlery, blankets, pillows and furniture return to buildings where they are temporarily removed.
