The Bears Den is simply beautiful. We spent a week here with friends and the hospitality, advice and friendship shown by Lesley and her staff was truly wonderful. The lodge is so wonderfully appointed and comfortable and great to return to after a day on the slopes. We had a yummy cooked breakfast everyday and lifts to wherever we needed... More

Spent 8 nights there in early Jan 2015 with a group of 4, this was the best part of our trip for sure. Our room was really comfy and modern and felt massive compared to every other place we stayed during our trip. Ro picked us up from Hakuba station even though we were supposed to go to the closer...

Our group of 11 spent 8 nights at The Den and had an awesome experience. The accommodation itself is fantastic, but when you have a host like Lesley, it enhances the experience all that more. I could write here all day about the first rate service she provides. Breakfast in the morning was always sensational and we had the Japanese... More

We spent 4 nights at the Bears Den during last new year holiday and we had a really nice stay. Small village atmosphere of the Goryu area, deep into huge snow, great skiing, added to the excellent breakfast, the spacious room and the warm atmosphere of the Bears Den made this trip very special. Thanks again Lesley and Ro! Julien... More

The Bears Den truly feels like a home away from home. The rooms are spacious & exceptionally maintained while also feeling a sense of warmth & comfort, the location is perfect being at the end of the road away from traffic and noise while also being just a stones throw away from the slopes ! The lodge has all the... More

Rooms are very comfortable and the lodge has everything you need for a very enjoyable holiday. Special thanks for advising us on planning our side trips on non-ski days and for helping with the transport. And we loved the... More

Bears Den is a great stay in the Hakuba area. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with the essentials. Close to the slopes and has a great happy atmosphere :) will be coming back for more fun in the snow.

What a great place to stay. Not crowded and the service was great. Bears Den is for those who want to be part of a family made up of people you don't know. After one day everyone was getting on like they has known each other for years. This was due to the limited number of people and everyone was... More

I stayed for 3 brief nights in March for a quick few days of snowboarding and relaxing, and have already decided on a 10 day trip for next year. It's close to lifts which is great, each room has its own bathroom and the management are extremely friendly and helpful. A lovely lodge with BBQ and hot tub facilities, the... More
