The area has many small lakes, cliffs and nature in all its beauty. The buildings have been constructed to blend in with the surroundings and are located discreetly amongst the trees.

The cottage land has a lot of buildings. The observation tower in the main building is visible from a distance and you can see a long way from it! The main house has a well equipped kitchen, dining room, two sitting rooms, one bedroom and one alcove. In addition, there is a washing room with a toilet, shower and laundry facilities. The building has two fireplaces and flat screen TV. The main building has beds for four and in addition the living room sofa can accommodate two more. At the front of the building there is a terrace with two tables and chairs for ten. The terrace has a gas barbecue at your disposal.

Outdoor toilet
The sauna building on the shore of the small lake. The sauna building has, of course, a traditional wood sauna where you can certainly enjoy the heat! Warm water for washing is available from the water container in the sauna stove and water for steam and other water is pumped from the lake.

In front of the sauna there is a hot tub. The hot tub is large enough for up to 6 bathers at one time. You can have a pleasant dip in the warm waters of the lake from the hot tub. Water for the hot tub comes from the sauna with a hose and for wood for heating is available from the woodshed next to the summer room. Please remember to fill hot tub with water first and then light the fire – in this way you will avoid the furnace breaking down.

There is an island in the lake on the property that you can access by a bridge. At the other end of the island there is also a bridge which takes you back to the "mainland" and it is here that a real Indian tent "teepee" is waiting for you! It’s here that you will be able to enjoy some cozy barbecue moments.

In this area there is also a swing and a dart board.
