Lauha's rental hut is located inside the Lauhanvuori national park in a pine forest. The rental of the hut is only possible through the online store.
There are two accommodation buildings in the area. A hut for 2 people ( approx. 15 m2) with stove heating and rudimentary tableware. The second hut has four beds ( approx. 18m2) and it has no heating, so it is only suitable for use during warm weather. Both huts as well as the separate wood-heated sauna building are included in the rent.

Other things to note:
- Do not wash your hands or dishes in the hut's drinking water buckets or at the water points. Also, do not fill your drinking bottle directly on top of the drinking water bucket.
- The hut's have fire alarms, but we recommend taking a 9V battery with you and / or your own travel fire alarm.
- The hut's will not be cleaned between visits, so it's very important to leave all places in excellent condition when leaving. Cleaning is completely self-guided.
