I loved staying at the Bears Den. It is the only hotel I have ever stayed in that has felt like home. Leslie, the owner, is just a darling and goes above and beyond for her guests. It's a great location for getting to the local snow fields. You can even board/ski home. It is so lovely and warm. Very... More

Very clean, but at the same time a very homey place. The owner Lesley is very pleaslant and friendly. The best part is the bed... it is so comfy! And it is also minutes walking away for skiing. Thank you Lesley!

Amazing lodge, with perfect accommodation for all types of travellers, and a homely and comfortable feel. The bears den is set in a perfect location, just a short walk from the slopes and secluded in the beautiful mountains of Hakuba. The rooms are large and open, with big bathrooms unlike many places in Japan, and also have an inviting and... More

Had a fabulous 6 nights stay with Lesley in Jan 2015. Our family of 2 adults and 2 boys had 2 rooms with the most comfortable beds. Lovely ensuite and linen and under floor heating was a luxury.

Great place to stay if you're heading to the Hakuba Valley next winter; though I'm sure it would be a great base for a summer holiday too!

I stayed at Beards Den in Feb/March 2015. I have stayed in multiple snow accomodation throughout the world and in Hakuba, this was by far the best. Lesley and Rob were always happy to provide advice on where the best snow would be, and they were always correct. Cooked breakfast, amazingly large, spacious and comfortable rooms. Snow runs will now... More

We are so wrapped with our first ever health retreat in Japan held at The Bears Den chalet, in Hakuba. The facility itself lends to group experiences that encourage contemplative practice. It's proximity to nature and hiking made it a true immersion in the elements, with accessible walks and hikes literally on the doorstep for every fitness level. The open... More
