“Affordable Luxury”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

I spent 4 nights at the Milky House and have only praise for the lodge. The owner, Yasuhiro Nishio, is completely dedicated. He will assist in the planning, organise transport, activities, provide information and generally be helpful in any way he can. The lodge is only 200m from the Annapuri cable car; well appointed with subtle touches, cast iron fire place, photos and memorabilia from days gone by. The fair is superb, alternating between Japanese, Asian and European cooking. 5 course meals are the norm. Every morning there is beautiful fresh milk and yogurt from the local farm. Nishio is assisted by a group of lodge staff who are just as passionate about their work. The staff makes you feel welcome and atends to your needs. Bedrooms are cozy warm, communal bathroom large and clean. Nishio will personally drive you to an Onsen every night after dinner. And all this for a very reasonable price. To top off such exceptional service, you can only hope for 30 cm snowfall during the night. Perhaps Nishio can even do something in that department?

The owner of this B&B is really nice and friendly but his English is pretty limited over the telephone. Emails are a hit and miss and may or may not be answered in a timely manner. He hires some seasonal staff that speak English, but they aren't the ones that answer the phone.

One of the main reasons our ski group chose this place is because it is close the the hill (5-10 min walking) and it has a dining area where we could hang out as a group in the evenings.

The noise level in this place is unacceptable as there are no signs anywhere that remind people to keep their noise down. This is a great place for families but not great if you are looking for a relaxing place to rest. Expect kids to run up and down the hall and main/2nd floor in the early morning and late evening.

The sound proofing in the rooms are non-existant. You can hear people talking in the room next door. I believe all of the rooms have single beds so if you are a couple, don't expect to be sleeping together. Most rooms have 2 or 3 beds and some rooms have 5-10. The comfort level on the small beds are acceptable and similar to what you would get at a 3 star motel.

The toilets are on the 2nd floor where the rooms are but if you want to take a shower, you'll need to go downstairs to the main floor (next to the the dining room). The owner is really nice and offers a 7:30 shuttle bus to different onsen's every night. Suggest that you ask the owner to take you to a different onsen if there is a bus full of families and kids going to the same onsen.

Get your ski tickets from the B&B as it is about 30-40% cheaper than at the bottom of the hill.

Room Tip: Request a room that is far away from the staircase as you can hear people walking up and down the wo...
