When it comes to traditional lakeside cottages of outstanding quality, the Katiska cottage is right up there with the best of them – a cosy and atmospheric log cottage with everything that you need but no frills. The Katiska cottage is available for up to 4 persons in May-October. Built in the 1970s, Katiska has undergone a number of changes and improvements over the years, the latest refurbishment taking place in 2018. More amenities have been added and the appearance enlivened, yet honouring the past and the original spirit.

Keys, arrival and key handback

Upon your arrival, please check in at the reception, address Jokiniementie 62, 71910 Alapitkä (Lapinlahti). You will get the key to the cottage and instructions on how to get there. The earliest check-in time is 4.00 pm on your arrival date, and the key is to be handed back by 12 noon on your departure date.

Tidiness, after stay cleaning and waste

The guest renting the cottage is responsible for the tidiness of the rented premises during his/her stay. A more thorough after stay cleaning by the staff is included in the price, but please see to the following before checking out: Wash any dirty dishes, empty the waste bins, clear out any ashes from the fireplace and sauna stove firebox as well as their ash boxes and from the grill, separate the bedlinen from the blankets and pillows and replace any furniture you have moved. On the sauna terrace, there’s a metal bucket for the ashes. If travelling with a pet, clean up any droppings near the cottage and remove any loose hair from the furniture.

We hope that you have the energy to sort your waste while at Jokiniemi. Put all recyclable waste materials (glass, metal, plastic, cardboard) in the designated containers by the woodshed. You will also find a mixed waste container there. Papers and combustible waste (not including materials lined with aluminium or containing metal) can be burned in the sauna stove. For biowaste, there is a designated composter by the tennis court on the way to the reception.


Pets are allowed in the cottage for no extra charge. Guests travelling with pets must ensure that no loose hair is left on the furniture before they check out. The easiest solution to this is to cover the furniture appropriately upon arrival.

If your dog relieves itself in the vicinity of the cottage, it is your responsibility to clean up any droppings and take them to the forest to decompose there. Also ensure that your pet stays at your party’s cottage – any nesting birds should not be disturbed, and the neighbouring guests may not be dog people.

Terms and conditions, rules and instructions
Any breakage of items or dishes in the cottage is not considered normal wear and tear included in the rental price and has to be compensated separately by the user. Please familiarise yourself with our terms and conditions of delivery before making a reservation.
