Kumanote Bear Den
Amazing in-village location across from a famous natural hot spring, conveniently located to all the village offers, and walking distance to the lifts in Nozawa Onsen.
The accommodation was amazing, there was so much room for the 7 of us, and we really enjoyed sharing our breakfasts and evenings in the spacious living/dining room.
The little touches that Chris provided like the Nespresso machine and some Xmas decorations as we stayed over Christmas made it that extra special.
On top of this he made dinner reservations for us and provided local suggestions which were all spot on!
We would definitely recommend staying to any of our friends who visit Nozawa Onsen 🙂
We had a fantastic time at Kumanote Bear. The apartment was huge, super clean and we had everything we needed. Chris and everyone at Kumanote Lodge was so warm and welcoming and helped us with taxi bookings, restaurant reservations, local tips and gear rentals. The apartment was nice to come home to after a day on the slopes. Homey and warm, with an onsen right at the doorstep. The Nespresso machine was a nice touch, and we had a great time just vegging out and watching Netflix on our days off skiing/snowboarding.
Nice host Chris, patient introducing the function of the house and nicely teach us the way to cook the onsen egg. The house is decorated very well, fasion and clean. the famous Onsen is just another side of the front door, 2 showing room is good for bathing after the Onsen. very pleased with this house, will definitely book again next time.
