We enjoyed our stay very much. So peaceful - just what we needed. Our room and all facilities were very clean and the attention to detail by the lovely staff really impressed. The traditional Japanese breakfast was equal to the best we have experienced in Japan. Highly recommend this guesthouse.

Had to wait 15 minutes to check in as room wasn’t ready. Not very busy so really no excuse for that

Tranquility in a Japanese setting. A portable heater in the room made switch on and off clicking sound at night. They did provide an itemised receipt, after questioning about overcharging our massages, they said that because we booked our accommodation through a third party. They had not mentioned the surcharge when showing me their listed prices.

Exceptional experience at a unique property.
Every detail is looked after. Considered rearranging my trip to stay longer. It's a no-frills kinda place, but it's exceptional in its peace and beauty. I wish the pillows were more comfortable. And pay close attention to the driving instructions before arrival. Google maps will send you an impossible way on a walking path! Oh - and the traditional Japanese breakfast is gorgeous.

Should have stayed at the Lakehouse
An enjoyable night in an authentic Japanese style guest house. The massage was excellent and the food was authentic and tasty. The rooms were floored with genuine tatami but were very small and a little dated as was the dining area which was very sparse and basic. There is no TV or wifi (which does appeal at certain times) but this would become a bit dull after a few nights. It was relatively enjoyable but I am unlikely to return.
