Koko Hirsniemi
cottage, Repovesi - Verla, Kouvola, 8+8 persons

Have the whole peninsula to yourself. The four cabins in Hirsniemi and a genuine log-built sauna make up a forest experience just a stone’s throw away from the Mill Museum. 

Hirsniemi brings their guests to the true forest life on the shore of a sandy lake. In this beautiful landscape you can have a break 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 cabins’ type, the yards and the beach

Four recently renovated, 25-square-meter cabins for 9 adults (can accommodate more if there are kids, up to 3-4 people per cabin). There are open main rooms and a kitchenettes in each cabin. The yards are mainly pine forest.

There is a shallow sandy lakeshore in front of the cabins. The beach 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.
