Koivurannan lomamökit is located in the countryside, in Haukivuori, South-Savo, in the Lakeland Finland. We offer seven lakeside cottages for rent. Our cottages are great places to enjoy the peace of Finnish nature and beautiful views of Lake Kyyvesi. There are five cottages available throughout the year and two cottages are for summer use. Every cottage does have their own swimming beach, a separate sauna building and a rowing boat. Our cottages are all unique, so choose the best alternative for your individual needs. There are excellent possibilities to collect berries and mushrooms in the forests nearby. Lake Kyyvesi is excellent for fishing; lots of pike and zanders live in there. In the winter we operate a skiing track around the farm. A sledding hill near the barbeque hut is also open for use.

We farm Finncattle, the original cattle of Finland. During summer they pasture in the forest and take care of the landscape. The cottages Koivu and Mänty are located next to the areas they pasture. Cottage Pihlaja is in the direct presence of the farm. If desired, you are shown how to shepherd the cattle. During summer, hens wander around the farm and our cats will be more than happy be taken with you to your cottages.


Each of the cottages have their own separate lakeside sauna, and all of them have WLAN.
