Imagine DXing from the quiet of Finnish woods on your own private island.

The OH73ELK Rental Shack is situated in the Savonlinna region is the heart of Lake Saimaa in the southeast of Finland.

This labyrinth of lakes and islands is the perfect place to relax in nature, and of course, to enjoy the adrenaline rush of dx adventure.

At the OH73ELK Rental Shack you will have complete privacy offered by the generous 2.5-hectare lot in the tip of an island with its own 300 m shoreline as well as trails in the woods.

Built in 2007, this modern 100-square meter cottage is available for rent for up to 6-8 people all year round.

Inside you will find all necessary modern conveniences.

The price of the OH73ELK Rental Shack rental is said to be standard for this region, but it changes depending on the duration and time of year of your stay and how many guests you have.

Use of the sauna, grill, firewood, Yamaha motor boat, fishing poles and other perks are included in the price. Unlimited Wi-Fi is also included.

There is no additional charge for the use of Ham Radio.

After a day of communicating on the Amateur Radio bands, you can relax in a traditional Finnish wooden sauna located only 10 m from the lake.

Imagine swimming in water that is pure enough to drink!
