cottage, Kouvola, 10+2 persons

The Saarijärvi Forestry hut has a long history with visitors of Repovesi. It was built in the 1950s for the loggers to stay in during fellings. At the one end of the cottage there were about 20 beds for the workers, handling many different duties at the site, and at the other end was the office of the foreman and the kitchen and its hostess. Here everyone obeyed the logger’s hut law. 

The structure and rooms

There were three different rooms in the forestry hut, the office, the kitchen and the worker’s end. The foreman was the boss and in charge of the felling. The hostess supplied the food and cleaned. The workers stayed in their room and tried not the disturb the hostess. Food was served to the workers' side through a window between the rooms. 


Today, you get to experience the real forest atmosphere in the forestry hut at Saarijärvi.

Accommodation and the number of beds

There are bunk beds, with a 120cm lower bed and an 80cm upper bed, in the foreman’s and the hostess’ rooms, each housing 2-3 people. In the large workers' room, there are two bunk beds housing a total of 4 (the beds are 80cm wide). The maximum number of people is 8. The beds are furnished with a mattress, blankets and pillows.
