Stay in an authentic half timbered cottage in the woods of Karuizawa, Japan's most renowned retreat highland sanctuary. Walk, bicycle, stroll in the woods, visit gourmet restaurants nearby. This house is highly insulated with a centralized heating system, for your comfortable winter stay. Burning woods in the fireplace adds up an exquisite winter atmosphere.

The space

Our wooden timbers are REAL, so the patterns you see from outside are real posts which stand the house. In many cases, 'so-called Tudor-style" houses are fake with laminated posts on the wall outside. In this house, you will live and feel the big timbers IN & OUT-side of this house.

2 bed rooms on 2nd floor. 1 Queen-sized bed, 2 single beds. 3 more Futons are available on request.

We had a great experience. The location was quiet but convenient if you drive. It has everything we need. The kitchen is big and well equipped. It's extremely spacious. We practically only used half of the space. We definitely would love to stay here again in future.

Such a wonderful property! It's a genuine Tudor style house, which is worthwhile staying once. Amazingly clean and comfortable. The host is communicative and entire checkin/ out process was smooth. Definitely recommend this house in Karuizawa! 吹き抜けの天井が高く開放感のある造り。英国でよく見た本物のチューダー様式の素晴らしい建物でした。手入れ清掃も行き届いており、リネン類も大変清潔。三世代で利用させて頂きましたが、この上なく快適に過ごさせて頂きました。またホストのご対応も早く大変助かりました。

The attractive cottage is cozy, warm & clean. All facilities are well equipped. The hammock is one of the highlights that everyone loves it. My kids enjoyed to play in the entertainment room as they loves music too. Although it is located in the woods, the taxi driver knows the way to drive there by using Tomo san's Japanese driving routes. Tsuruya supermarket is just within 15minutes walk. We buy food there & cook for dinner. Tomo san is a great host, helpful & responsive. We all hope to visit there again in autumn.
