A magnificent and large villa in a unique setting

In the early 1900s, Kuorekoski farm comprised a small red house, a shed for four cows, and a small field. There was a sauna by the rapids and the village mill across the river, with a small drying house on the hillside - everything necessary was close by.

As the generations passed, life by the rapids quietened with the changes in rural life. The small red house was abandoned, and the cowshed and the drying barn left to rot. Birches took over the fields, protecting the farm’s old main building. Kuorekoski lay forgotten for 40 years.

In 2011, the rapids were still thundering vigorously in spring and autumn, flowing more calmly in the summer heat and cold of winter. The milldams and the sauna by the rapids are gone, but at least the stone walls of the cowshed remain a proud reminder of the past. The old lilacs continue to bloom each year.

A new building now stands on the site of the small red house – Kallen tupa, named for the man who ran its predecessor from 1945 to 1984. The grassy field beneath the birch trees growing in the yard offers plenty of room for children and the young at heart. An atmospheric and traditional log sauna has been built in the peace and quiet above the rapids.

The historical setting of Kuorekoski has been restored to life. Welcome!
