Beautifully equiped, this a great place to escape sweltering Tokyo- the temperature in Hakuba at this time of year is perfect! The chalet has 2 bathrooms - ideal for a family with teenagers. The bedrooms have extremely comfortable kingsize beds. Upstairs the aircon keeps the whole house cool. Nestled in a leafy street close to Echoland shops and restaurants, my family and I spent 8 blissful days in luxury at Hakuba Stugan and could easily have spent 8 more. We enjoyed a daily routine of swims at Lake Aoki (10 mins drive away) hikes in the mountains (Hakuba Yari Onsen is well worth the trek) and exploring the many delicious restaurants in the area. There is a great little bakery called kobo-nikki that sells an assortment of fresh artisan sough dough bread baked daily and also has a fine selection of local produce. We'll definitely visit again, there is so much to explore in the region and Hakuba Stugan is the perfect base.
Beautifully designed, comfortable, great location, clean... great house to stay in. Close to town, great restaurants and an onsen!! Neil is a wonderful host, we've stayed at a couple of his homes now and wouldn't go anywhere else. Always on hand to help with anything you'd need. Will return when there's snow next year!!
We stayed at this property for a week in September and have already booked to come back in winter. We were a group of six adults and the cottage suited us perfectly. 3 spacious bedrooms , a huge kitchen and two bathrooms. Basically everything we needed was there. Neil the manager went out of his way to share his local knowledge with us. The house is so well located right in the trees but within walking distance to the cafes. Loved the decor , very stylish yet cosy. Can't recommend it enough.
