The log cottage built 1978 locates at the shore of Pyhitty Lake in Pieksämäki and is totally renovated in the Spring 2011. This holiday home is fit for winter habitation, spacious, extremely cosy, and fully equipped – including wireless WiFi. There is room for six persons in the cottage and for two people in the fireplace room in the sauna building.
“Amazing house in beautiful place”
The cottage is renovated paying regard to the nature, there is for instance geothermal heating at the cottage. Waste heat is being salvaged and recycling is organised.
Sauna is a detached building next to the lake and it has been highly praised by our tenants. It is lovely also for small children to take a dip in the lake: the lakefront is ideal for kids due to the shallow sand bottom.
Pyhitty Cottage is located at a peacefull place at the end of the road. There is about 200 meters to the closest neighbouring cottage and less than 10 km to the center of Pieksämäki.
Awesome possibilities for outdoor activities
There are Watershed Trails (only in Finnish) close to the cottage which offer awesome possibilities for hiking, jogging, mountain biking, and canoeing. Trails are optimal for families with childeren to have the first camping night or for those who don`t have enough strength to hike very far.
