About Reena - the Doer
Our association Pohjoisen Korpilahden yhteistyöyhdistys ry maintains the cabin, and we locals enjoy it so much we would like to share it with you, too, and show what we have to offer: a break from the hectic city life and a feeling of tranquility in a modest yet well equipped atmospheric cabin, only 25 km away from the city centre.
