My husband and I stayed in November 2020. It was beautiful place. We were very impressed. As soon as we arrived, Yumi-san & Glenn-san welcomed us with hot tea and nice Japanese sweets. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. Spring water bath was very soft and relaxing. Everything was beyond words. We didn't want to go home. Thank you so much for wonderful Japanese omotenashi!

I stayed at O gawa shou with my husband and our 13-year-old daughter. We had a wonderful time. The owners are warm and friendly and the inn is a labor of love. Many years ago I stayed at a traditional inn in Japan and this is as close as you can get in the US. When you arrive, your hosts will offer you green tea and Japanese sweets. Our room was lovely, with two easy chairs that look over the traditional garden. We each took turns soaking in the bath and afterwards dressed in the traditional cotton robes for dinner. Dinner--and breakfast the following morning--was delicious, with a series of small dishes, all presented beautifully. My favorite dishes were the lotus root and green bean salad, the sweet potato and carrot tempura, and the mushroom soup (served in an individual teapot). In the morning, we walked around the property and my husband meditated on a bench overlooking the bubbling brook. Our daughter is very interested in Japanese culture and she was in heaven. There are many beautiful nature preserves, farms, and woods to explore nearby. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough!

We were immediately greeted by owners Yumi and Glenn upon our arrival who were attentive to all of our needs throughout our stay. Authentic and gourmet food. Great rooms complete with Japanese robes and authentic Japanese style bath. Nice gardens. A wonderful place to spend a night.

Hosts Yumi and Glenn have painstakingly created a beautiful inn to share their favorite elements of Japanese design and hospitality. Every room has beautiful corners and alcoves to display art objects or flowers. And the windows look out on trees and a brook. My husband and I loved the breakfast, which included fresh fish, steamed egg, rice, vegetables, miso soup, and a very delicately flavored apple salad. Soaking in the elegant, dark-tiled bath until we felt completely tranquil was wonderful. The best thing, though, was how good we felt for an entire week after we went home. It's easy to relax at O gawa shou.

I booked O Gawa Shou a few months before our anniversary as a surprise for my boyfriend. Barely two weeks before our booked night, an unexpected event required us to reschedule. Glen and Yumi are so very gracious and understanding and rebooking was not a problem at all. They were such a pleasure to deal with from the very start and made our anniversary get away everything we had hoped for. Knowing very little about Japanese culture, we were guided on the wearing of traditional Japanese robes, the proper protocol for baths, and felt comfortable throughout. I highly recommend booking the dinner. Yumi's cooking skills are spectacular - the food was exquisite. The beautiful presentation tried, but couldn't surpass the simplicity and pureness of the flavors - so much better than anything I've ever had at any restaurant, Japanese or otherwise. I lost track of the number of times Glen indicated the ingredients were homegrown ingredients or direct from family in Japan. We also thoroughly enjoyed the bath, soaking away weeks of stress. We have crazy busy schedules and to have the opportunity to escape to such a peaceful, tranquil place, even though for just one night, was such a treat. We look forward to going back when the weather is warm enough to walk through the gardens.
