The whole log cabin was kept very clean (and seemed new). The 3 heaters provided were adequate to keep us warm during winter. It was a spacious accommodation for us (family of 4). Kitchen was well-equipped for us to cook simple meals. Complimentary entry was given to nearby public hot bath which provided simple but clean hot bath facilities. Sighted a couple of deer and a fat rabbit near the hotel on the way back to the log house. Very quiet serene place for good family bonding time together.
We booked the place almost 2 months ahead and had requested for hotel to allow us to book half-board at the restaurant onsite. But we were advised that the kitchen was under maintenance during the 2 days of our stay. However, when we arrived, we saw meals being served to other guests. So we checked with the restaurant captain and was told we could have the meals if we had booked in advance. When we approached the front desk to clarify, we were again being told the kitchen was under maintenance. It was unfortunate that they insisted we could not have any meal at the restaurant during our stay cause "kitchen under maintenance". We were hoping to enjoy some of their "french cuisine" there. But anyway, our children had a chance to showcase their cooking skill and we had simple meals instead. To get food, the nearest town would be Minamifurano station (about 9 km drive from the hotel) or further town will be Furano (about 45km drive away).

Stayed here during February for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Place is out of town and very quiet. The cottage was very big for just two of us. There were 5 beds. Full equipped kitchen. A public onsen bath 5 mins away. Very beautiful and romantic place. Will definitely come back again for sure.

Very quiet and felt out of the world. Complete drastic change from my previous stay at hoshino tomamu which was full of ppl.
Lake kanayama was frozen and white with snow.

The drive in along kanayama lake is pretty quiet.

Must bring along food for dinner n breakfast.
Kids had so much fun playing outside lodge

We were there first week of February, snow white all over, lake was frozen. But the surrounding was so beautiful, pine forrest at the back and frozen lake in the distance. we put on the snow shoe (free for guests) and walked to the lake , not so easy but an experience we wont forget...

The log hotel is beautiful, our room has balcony , sitting area with bathroom on the ground level then 2 twin beds up the stairs, all made of logs. the corridors into the rooms was also great for photos.

our package included french dinner and japanese breakfast, both were delicious though we'd have liked a bigger portion! Price is very reasonable too..all that foe under 20,000 JPY. We love to come back in spring or summer to see the lake and the surrounding forrest!

Not sure if they have double beds in other rooms, would be nice if we had one, such cold weather & the hotel is so romantic yet we had to sleep in diff beds!

The only downside is there is no onsen for such large establishment, they did hand out free tickets to go to a nearby public bath house (about 2 mins by car) , wouldnt recommend it, not exactly clean, I'd rather shower in the room;s small bathroom!

My parents and son visited Log Hotel Larch in early June. I originally booked a cabin but the hotel staff located us in the main building which is near the restaurant. Since it was raining, the arrangement was fine with us as we are directly connected to the restaurant and won't get wet.

The room had 3 big super single beds upstairs and there is heater. Only complaint was the converted single sofa bed I slept on downstairs wasn't comfortable at all.

Our room rate included French dinner and breakfast and the French cuisine was excellent!!!!!! Love the ambience in the restaurant and the tranquil misty greenery surroundings. Really wonderful unique hotel, hope I have a chance to stay there again next time!
