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

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

Nothing is too much trouble and her local knowledge and ideas for exploring the area, both near and far are invaluable. The accommodation is fantastic, extremely comfortable with plush white linen...

This was our second time back to Bears Den as we loved it so much the first time. You are really made to feel like Bears Den is your own home away from home. I love the rooms and comfy bed, and my husband raves about the hot tub, so make sure you bring some bathers! Lesley is fantastic with... More

A large group of us went to Hakuba & stayed at the Bears Den due to my suggestion based on all of the positive reviews on this site. I insisted to my friends we spend a bit more due to the benefits and apparent extra customised services offered at this place. However it must have been a bad week for... More
