Hirsniemen Jänis
cottage, Repovesi - Verla, Kouvola, 2+2 persons

The Hirsniemi cabins named after animals bring their guests into true forest life on the shore of a sandy lake. In this beautiful landscape you can have a break with your family or with a bigger party divided into separate cabins. 

The reservations and maintenance of the Verla cottages and cabins is managed by Repovalkea Oy. The cottages and cabins are owned and operated by UPM-Kymmene Oyj. The destinations are part of the World Heritage Site.

The cabin type, the yard and the beach

A recently renovated, 25-square-meter cabin for 3-4 people with an open main room and a kitchenette. The yard is mainly pine forest.

The Jänis cabin has its own sandy, wooded beach with a path leading to it. The beach shore itself is covered by typical pine forest vegetation (shrubs and big pine trees)


The four cabins of Hirsniemi are located about half a kilometer from the Mill Museum on a quiet peninsula. The cabins are accessible by car.

Each cabin is individually marked on the peninsula itself, but finding the right intersection in the museum area requires attention. 

You can find the location of Hirsniemi on Google maps and a picture of the intersection on Google Street View.
