Lesley is a wonderful host who made us feel so at home as soon as we walked through the doors. The lodge is top class and the beds are by far the best in Japan!

From the extremely comfortable beds, plush towels, and soft pillows, to the homely living areas, Bears Den Mountain Lodge is a wonderful place to stay, offering all the comforts from home. Thank you Lesley for the cooking lessons, the wonderful company and for the much needed respite. Can't wait to be back.

This place has everything you need - large cloud beds for getting a good night's sleep and resting after a hard day on the mountain, heated flooring to keep your toes nice and toasty warm, delicious and filling home cooked breakfast every day, a home trail straight up to the gondola, the best customer service you will find in Hukuba! I cannot recommend this lodge enough :)

My solo stay at Bears Den was exactly what I needed.

Lesley is a great host and the place is amazing for both engaging with other travellers or for when you just want to chill out in privacy.

The lodge is immaculate and the room I had was very spacious with a massive bed and ensuite (nothing like what you will encounter in Tokyo) and it is all set in beautiful surroundings.

Plenty to do (eating and drinking) around the lodge neighbourhood so there is more than the wonderful skiing that makes this place the perfect destination.

Our stay at Bears Den was faultless. Lesley is a fantastic host and caters to your every need while also allowing you the privacy you need. Bears Den offers a very welcoming environment in beautiful surroundings. The rooms are large with fantastically huge beds and private bathrooms with everything being super clean.
We were provided with a wonderful cooked breakfast every morning and transported to our chosen ski destination. There are any number of diverse restaurants to choose from for your evening meal which are mostly all in walking distance. I could mention many more positives to this location but you should really experience it for yourself.
