The village shop and the nearest bus stop are both about 5 kilometres away. The railway station in Joensuu is 125 kilometres away and the distance to the Ilomantsi centre is about 45 kilometres.

Cleaning equipment can be found in the bathroom. The cleaning linen and detergents are kept in the kitchen cupboard. The vacuum cleaner is kept in the downstairs bedroom's closet.
The bedclothes for the convertible sofa downstairs are stored in the downstairs bedroom's closet. The bedclothes for the upstairs convertible sofa are in the upstairs bedroom's closet.
When you use the fireplace, remember to open the vents at both the downstairs (in the kitchen) and upstairs (at the chimney duct) points. The 'hooks' in the upper and lower parts of the fireplace's glass hatch may also be adjusted to maximize the draft if needed.
When heating the sauna remember to open the vent in the sauna! The dressing-room is electrically heated so the dressing-room vent does not need to be opened. Firewood for heating the sauna can be found both in the box at the terrace and also in the shed beside the sauna.
