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

This cabin (Saukko or ”The Otter”) lies in the forest about half a kilometer from the Mill Museum, on a quiet peninsula. It is suitable for 2-3 adults.

The Hirsniemi cabins named after animals bring their guests into the true forest life on a 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, yard and the beach

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

The Orava cabin has no private beach, but a path leads to the common campfire place on a shallow sandy beach.


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.

The Orava and Saukko cabins are furthest in the forest and when booked together, form a nice combination.  The distance between the two cabin is 45-50 meters.
