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.
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.
The cottage can accommodate 8 people and no more people can stay there. If your group is bigger than 8, we suggest you consider Savottakämppä. Pitching tents in the near forests is not allowed. .
