Getting here

Lake Side Lodge Pääskylä lies at the shores of the Ihanainen Lake approximately 3 km away from the hamlet Rautajärvi.

Coming from Pälkänen/Luopioinen taking the 322 you have to turn in Murronkulmantie just bevor crossing the bridge. Murronkulmantie takes you for approximately 1 km down a dirt road. You will see a sign on your left side, where you turn left down the road that takes you to the lake and the house.

Some navigation systems might lead you over the Kivistöntie; NEVER take this road unless you drive a real off-road car (or just don’t do this at all).
