The hut is heated with wood (there is a baking oven and cooker in the kitchen as well as a heating stove in the bedroom), and the amenities include candle and oil lamp lighting, tableware as well as cooking and serving utensils. Please note that it takes some time before the hut is properly warm!

The main room has two beds, a dining set and a gas cooker. The bedroom has two beds. In the main room are three mosquito nets to use over the beds. A sauna, firewood shelter, campfire site, cellar and well can be found in the yard. The toilet is behind the shed and sauna. The compost heap and waste container are placed by the parking space. A rowboat available for tenants. 


There's a well with a hand pump at the Onninmaja rental hut. The well is located between the sauna and the shed in the yard.

You can drive directly to the hut yard. The hut's key fits the lock of the barrier on the road to the yard.

Please remember to bring your own linen!

There is room for 3-4 extra persons to sleep on the floor but you must bring your own mattresses with you. 

There are no accessible services in the hut.

The stove in the bedroom heats the room up very quickly. When using the baking oven in the kitchen, it is advisable to keep the fire burning low at first for the chimney to have time to warm up (no smoke inside). You must open the stove registers before heating! When setting fire up in the hearth, do not leave the fire unsupervised.

The sauna heats up quickly. One and a half furnace loads of wood are enough to heat the water tank.

Swimming possibility in the lake, by the sauna. The beach is gently sloping by the dock. There is no official beach.

There is a connection trail that starts from the campfire site next to the hut and leads to the Ilvesvaellus Hiking Trail network.
