Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very pleased to have stayed one-nite in this unique log hotel. The twin bed unit is so spacious with the beds upstairs. The dining experience was also unusual with set dinner (fusion french/japanese) which was yummy. The service was excellent. The hotel was arranged by Hokkaido Treasure Island Travel who organised our private tour. Would defintely recommend to stay here when in Furano

This is our second time to stay at The Larch. Once again, we were NOT disappointed. It's in a fantastic location ... you can access 3 different ski resorts (Furano; Sahoro & Tomamu Ski areas) all within one hour, by car. There are popular cottages to stay in, but we chose the convenience of the hotel - no need to get cold moving around the hotel, that way. The rooms in the hotel are very spacious. We stayed in a triple room with a maisonette style ... the toilet, bathroom; living room with a huge 2 parts sofa are downstairs and the 3 beds (evenly spaced) are upstairs. It's so quiet at night, when the snow or ice slides off the room, it can wake you suddenly ... ha! ha! (Having also stayed in a huge well-known hotel in Furano - the no hustle'n'bustle, just peace and quiet of The Larch is sanely fantastic...) The bathroom and toilet are separate and are both clean and spacious. The closet could be a bit bigger (esp. with bulky ski wear), but there are plenty of hangers. The central heating is not too hot and can be adjusted. The large verandah (although freezing) is great to sit down (at the plastic table and chairs) and just enjoy the view - for a little while - too chilly, for too long. You can do your washing there ... they have 2 washing machines and 2 dryers, above the reception. They're reasonably priced ... The meals are great. They're not exactly huge, but with all the freshest local ingredients. They consist of several courses, beautifully arranged. At brekkie, if you're lucky enough ... you will also get to see the beautiful Jays come in for a feed. The hotel also provide play items: sleds; snowshoes etc., for guests. The only downside ... is that the hotel does offer a hot spring bath centre ... but, it's not within walking distance (in winter). It's about 3-5 mins by car. It's old ... (that's probably why we had it all to ourselves???) and the change areas lacked amenities ... but, the hot bath is great! Unfortunately, they don't have an outside bath, either. Overall it's a fantastic hotel, for our needs. The staff are very friendly & helpful. We will undoubtedly stay again ...

The whole log cabin was kept very clean (and seemed new). The 3 heaters provided were adequate to keep us warm during winter. It was a spacious accommodation for us (family of 4). Kitchen was well-equipped for us to cook simple meals. Complimentary entry was given to nearby public hot bath which provided simple but clean hot bath facilities. Sighted a couple of deer and a fat rabbit near the hotel on the way back to the log house. Very quiet serene place for good family bonding time together. We booked the place almost 2 months ahead and had requested for hotel to allow us to book half-board at the restaurant onsite. But we were advised that the kitchen was under maintenance during the 2 days of our stay. However, when we arrived, we saw meals being served to other guests. So we checked with the restaurant captain and was told we could have the meals if we had booked in advance. When we approached the front desk to clarify, we were again being told the kitchen was under maintenance. It was unfortunate that they insisted we could not have any meal at the restaurant during our stay cause "kitchen under maintenance". We were hoping to enjoy some of their "french cuisine" there. But anyway, our children had a chance to showcase their cooking skill and we had simple meals instead. To get food, the nearest town would be Minamifurano station (about 9 km drive from the hotel) or further town will be Furano (about 45km drive away).

Stayed here during February for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Place is out of town and very quiet. The cottage was very big for just two of us. There were 5 beds. Full equipped kitchen. A public onsen bath 5 mins away. Very beautiful and romantic place. Will definitely come back again for sure.

Very quiet and felt out of the world. Complete drastic change from my previous stay at hoshino tomamu which was full of ppl. Lake kanayama was frozen and white with snow. The drive in along kanayama lake is pretty quiet. Must bring along food for dinner n breakfast. Kids had so much fun playing outside lodge

We were there first week of February, snow white all over, lake was frozen. But the surrounding was so beautiful, pine forrest at the back and frozen lake in the distance. we put on the snow shoe (free for guests) and walked to the lake , not so easy but an experience we wont forget... The log hotel is beautiful, our room has balcony , sitting area with bathroom on the ground level then 2 twin beds up the stairs, all made of logs. the corridors into the rooms was also great for photos. our package included french dinner and japanese breakfast, both were delicious though we'd have liked a bigger portion! Price is very reasonable too..all that foe under 20,000 JPY. We love to come back in spring or summer to see the lake and the surrounding forrest! Not sure if they have double beds in other rooms, would be nice if we had one, such cold weather & the hotel is so romantic yet we had to sleep in diff beds! The only downside is there is no onsen for such large establishment, they did hand out free tickets to go to a nearby public bath house (about 2 mins by car) , wouldnt recommend it, not exactly clean, I'd rather shower in the room;s small bathroom!

My parents and son visited Log Hotel Larch in early June. I originally booked a cabin but the hotel staff located us in the main building which is near the restaurant. Since it was raining, the arrangement was fine with us as we are directly connected to the restaurant and won't get wet. The room had 3 big super single beds upstairs and there is heater. Only complaint was the converted single sofa bed I slept on downstairs wasn't comfortable at all. Our room rate included French dinner and breakfast and the French cuisine was excellent!!!!!! Love the ambience in the restaurant and the tranquil misty greenery surroundings. Really wonderful unique hotel, hope I have a chance to stay there again next time!

Log Hotel Larch has a main hotel cum reception and several log cabins located higher part of the hotel grounds. The main reception lobby overlooks the lake - very picturesque view. In drenching rain, we drove carefully to our cabin. We were two families travelling together and so we took one cabin each. For my wife and me, we were quite astonished by the size of the cabin that was meant for 5 people - 5 beds, 5 sets of almost all kitchen utensils - spoons, forks, cups, plates. The bedroom (with 5 beds) and bathroom were on lower ground. Living room was huge and it opened up to a porch for star gazers. Kitchen was well equipped - including a large hot plate for BBQ. Loved the large wash basin of the kitchen as it makes washing up so easy. Anyway, dinner was for 6. With the hot plate, we had fried noodles with plenty of seafood ingredients, and home-made okkonomiyaki. (the only negative thing is that the power supply cannot support many cooking devices at the same time). It was a lovely hot meal on a cold evening. Adding the Asahi beer as a night cap, the evening ended with sound sleeping. Very blissful indeed.

We stayed here twice. The first time in Oct 2013 because the area was hit by an early snowstorm and our car was stuck nearby. The staff took us in despite the whole area was out of electricity (no heat). The staff was extra helpful and came up with hot food to serve us. We were thankful and decided that we had to come back to stay here again. We visited again in May 2015 and the weather was warm and the place was pleasant. It has a try log cabin feel and rooms are rustic but adequate. Meals served at the dining room were very good indeed. All that for a reasonable price!

I visited with my parents and booked the 5 bed cottage at half the usual price as it was June 18th and therefore not high season. I booked on the hotel's website. Before arriving I was able to email in English and arrange for the free use of a BBQ. The cottage was wonderful with a spacious living area with small kitchenette and lounge with a large veranda.outside. It all looks exactly like the photos on the website with two floors. The cottages are set in nice grounds and you can park right outside the cottage. When we arrived the BBQ had been set up for us. The staff were very friendly and spoke English. I would definitely recommend the Larch Log and especiallu if you can get the special offer.
