“A very good place to enjoy and relax”
We stay 3 days and enjoy / relax with the family. The cottage has all the equipment and more that you need also the owner is very kind. We strongly recomend it
“A Cozy Escape in the Mountains”
My husband and I first stayed at the cottage with our large dog in December 2013. After that, we've been so hooked on the mountains and the comfortable stay provided at the cottage, that we have since come up multiple times and are planning on staying here throughout the year. Neil stocks the cottage with whatever you'd need and clears the driveway when mother nature snows you in. The location is excellent. Echoland is the place to stay in Hakuba, and the cottage is basically at the base of Happo-one and Hakuba 47 -- both are very short drives away. It's so nice to find a place that can feel like home as soon as you walk in that also lets you bring your dog. My husband and I (and our dog) love it here! If you're considering renting this cottage, I can only highly recommend it.
Hakuba cottage exceeded our expectations in every respect. Located within the beautiful Misorano forest, it was only a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Echoland's main street. (Echoland is one of a number of discrete areas within Hakuba Valley and a favourite with international tourists.) The ski jump from the 1998 Winter Olympics can be be seen through the trees from the master bedroom. Buses to the various ski resorts in Hakuba Valley stop within a few hundred meters of the cottage. The closest and largest ski resort is Happo One - a 10 minute bus trip. The cottage itself was perfect for our party of 3 - two large and well furnished bedrooms, comfortable lounge and dining area (japanese style); compact well equpped kitchen (right down to coffee machine and wine decanter) and excellent entertainment system with library of movies and TV shows, all in English. The cottage has a nice homely feel with Japanese elements and a lovely outlook to the forest and other cottages in the street. Everything worked and the cottage was very clean and well maintained. The owner Neil lives nearby and couldn't do enough to help, including recommending restaurants and ski hire, driving us to the supermarket to buy supplies; driving us to the bus station to catch the bus on our final day; and going so far as finding hotel accommodation for us in Nagano when we became stranded after all train and bus services to Tokyo were cancelled as a result of severe snow storms across Japan. Neil is Scottish but has lived in Japan for the last 20 years and is fluent in Japanese- a great help when you have no idea what you are buying at the supermarket. Neil owns 2 other properties in the same street as the cottage which are also available for holiday letting - perfect for families holidaying together. Overall, a great package and good value. We would have no hesitation recommending Hakuba cottage.
“The perfect cottage in the perfect location”
When travelling to Hakuba the big question is where to stay. The town and ski areas are quite spread out and getting between them is a hassle. I am so glad that we chose Echoland and Hakuba Cottage. Nestled in the Misorano Forest the cottage is a couple of hundred metres from the restaurants and shops of Echoland's Main Street, with two onsens at either end of the street. It couldn't have a better location. Buses to two ski areas drive down the street while most others have a stop only a block away. The house itself is stylish, warm and brilliantly fitted out with both bedrooms being large and comfortable with great views out into the forest. The owner lives locally and takes care to ensure that your stay goes without a hitch, he was fantastic during our stay, checking we had what we needed, even organizing taxis for us when required. Can't speak highly enough of this property.
“Great quality accommodation”
Stayed at Hakuba Cottage during Golden Week. Very high standard accommodation. Comfortable, and really well equipped . (2 huge TVs , high end coffee machine, Free high speed wifi.) Quiet location 10 mins walk from main centre of Echoland which is fine for (1 good) cafe and (several) restaurants but quietens down quickly at night.
“The best accommodation in the best ski village in Japan”
This is a great stay. Hakuba is a top location winter, summer or autumn. We have stayed there in all of these seasons (our escape from Tokyo) and this is the best accommodation on offer. It is located just a short walk from Echoland (be sure to check out Sounds Like Cafe). It is best enjoyed if you have your own vehicle (4WD in winter) but it is close to the ski busses if you need them. The accommodation is well set up with quality furniture and fittings. A good it network with a selection of English movies to fill in the evenings (if you have any energy left). The kitchen is fine for anything you want to cook ( we put on the full Christmas dinner). Enjoy.
“Lovely place in a lovely part of the world.”
Stayed at Hakuba Cottage a few times over the last few years with my wife. Beautiful place in the woods, just enough off the beaten track to feel like you've really been away, yet relatively easy to get to from Tokyo by bullet train and a bus from Nagano, or a 4-hour drive from Tokyo. Best steak house in the world at the bottom of the hill though I forget the name. Super little bakery within walking distance. I get the feeling this is a very popular area in winter for the skiing. The Olympic ski-jump is literally jumping distance away! We've always gone in late spring or late summer when the walking is better. We plan to go next year and investigate the local river fishing.
“Great Stay in Hakuba”
My friends and I stayed at Hakuba Cottage for 2 nights in august 2009. The cottage is clean and cozy. We enjoyed BBQ and having meals at the balcony. I recommend you to stay there if you would like to spend a quiet summer holiday.
“Tranquil spring weekend at Hakuba Cottage”
We made a weekend trip to Hakuba Cottage in early May as a break from Tokyo and to give our 3-year-old a few days in the countryside. We arrived late at night, and though the outside temperature was around zero degrees celcius, the cottage was warm and cosy. The days were warm and we enjoyed a couple of Bbq's on the lovely terrace as well as a number of walks around the local area. The cottage is very tastefully decorated, offering western comfort and convenience combined with traditional Japanese elegance. All amenities - internet connection, hot water etc, work fine and the kitchen is very well equipped. The double bed upstairs is particularly comfortable. There is plenty of opportunity for long walks outside with stunning views of the mountains. A number of shops, cafes and bakeries are within walking distance, or a short drive. We had a wonderful three days at Hakuba Cottage and would not hesitate to recommend it, either as a base for exploring the area, or as somewhere to spend a restful day or two away from the city. We are planning another trip there next spring.
