Bellscabin is roughly 15 minutes away from the Naka-Karuizawa station on foot. Hosted by a nice, lovely middle-aged couple. I felt warm and welcome during my stay there. I spoke little Japanese, but luckily the owner spoke English rather well. The double room I stayed in was compact and comfortable. There were separate restrooms for male and female, in addition...

I spent three nights at Bell's Cabin Cafe & Guest House in mid-November,2015. It was a super good experience. The guest house is around 15 minutes walk from the Naka-Karuizawa Shinano Station, which is a walkable distance. The guest house is cozy and the owners are hospitable. The breakfast were excellent and I tried two different kinds and I loved...

Country Inn Bell's cabin is within easy walking distance from Naka Karuizawa station, perfectly located for hiking to see waterfalls in this or the main Karuizawa valley. The hosts are super friendly and kind and serve great food and drink! Very homely feel to the place. Decor is due a refresh but otherwise great value for money. Need to get...

Bell's Cabin is situated a short 10 minute walk away from the Nakakaruizawa JR station. The cabin is very cosy, there's free wifi and, most important of all, the owners are extremly nice and helpful. It's a perfect getaway for a short break from bustling tokyo.

Great place to stay after a wedding in Karuizawa especially considering the stress leading up to the big day. Great hospitality, nice breakfast and live NHL. Rooms are of good size by Japanese accommodation standards. Comfy bed (had a double room) and a hard pillow (also Japanese style) which is good for my neck.
