Cottage Gudungen is fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to enjoy the Finnish cottage life. The cottage is 60m² and consists of two bedrooms (each sleeps 2), a living room, a kitchen, a sauna and a patio.

There is no electricity on Ådö island, however, there is a solar panel on the roof of the cottage, so you can charge your phone and turn on the lights in the evening. There is no running water in the cottage either, so you use rain water from barrels behind the cottage for doing dishes and laundry.
As Finland is the land of one million saunas, there is, of course, a sauna in cottage Gudungen. In the sauna there is a wood-burning sauna stove and you carry your water to the sauna for bathing from the rain barrels behind the cottage, After enjoying the sauna, a dip in the sea is a must!
As there is no plumming in cottage Gudungen, there is a pikkula next to the cottage. A pikkula is a dry, composting toilet, in other words an outhouse. The pikkula is a cozy place, and in addition, very environmental friendly as you can also dispose of your bio-waste in it.
