Acorn Cottage is a newly renovated two-bedroom cottage in an outstanding location just off the main Echoland street, a couple of minutes walk to the cafes, restaurants, and bars, and perfectly situated to explore all the major ski resorts in the area via the free shuttle buses which pick up less than a minute's walk from your front door.
The cottage is perfect comfortable accommodation for six people.
The living/kitchen area is cosy and bright, with large patio doors and windows all around, offering stunning views of the surrounding serene forest.
You will find everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. There is a large flat screen TV and Apple TV, and needless to say, the cottage is also fully equipped with blazing-fast internet and WiFi. And the powerful fan-assisted heating will keep you toasty warm.
The all stainless-steel countertop kitchen is beside the lounge area, together forming an intimate area for preparing and enjoying meals after a hard day on the slopes. There is an electric induction hob set into the countertop, and you will also find every appliance you'll need.
Acorn Cottage has two bedrooms. One room has a king bed that can be split into two singles. The other room has the same king/singles setup, in addition to two bunks set into a cosy alcove, making this a perfect room for four people to share. Both bedrooms retain original Japanese features, such as tatami mats on the floor, exposed posts and beams, and sliding doors and window screens, reminding you that you are in a true Japanese house.
Acorn Cottage features one bathroom, equipped with a bath and shower, and an adjacent vanity and laundry area with a washer/dryer. There is also a separate toilet.
At the front of the house is a large wood deck, making the perfect setting for outdoor feasts and barbecues during the spring and summer months.

Acorn Cottage is located next to Echoland Rotary, just a couple of minutes walk from the dining and entertainment hub of Echoland. Free shuttle buses to all of the main resorts in the area pick up from the Rotary, a minute's walk from your front door. From there you can take buses to Hakuba Goryu (both Escal Plaza and Iimori areas), Hakuba 47, Happo-one, and Iwatake resorts, giving you great flexibility to explore all of what Hakuba has to offer.
In the late afternoons and evenings, there's also the Genki-Go shuttle bus, which has routes all around town — convenient for visiting the supermarket or bars and restaurants in other areas.
