友人とスキー旅行で初めて宿泊 20室位のこじんまりとした家庭的な旅館で女将さんが毎日スキーから帰るとおぜんざいとお茶で迎えて下さりホッとします リフトまで歩くとちょっと距離があるので心配してましたが毎回気持ちよく送迎をして頂き6名でバラバラに帰ってくる時もありましたが直ぐに対応してもらって本当に嬉しかったです お料理はとても美味しく、手の込んだ数々と3日間毎日違う愛情こもった創作料理にタイミング絶妙な女将さんをはじめスタッフの気配りが素晴らしいです とてもたくさんお料理がでて食べきれないといいつつ最後にご飯と美味しい味噌汁、手作りデザート完食の連日でした😋 温泉はオススメで強酸性の白濁のお湯は日本で2番目とか。。。 柔らかで肌に優しくとてもいいお湯だと思います 毎朝晩と欠かさず入りました✌️ 様々なリクエストも心こもった対応のおもてなしのある宿だとおもいます また来年もここがいいねってみんなのお気に入りの宿に登録!! This inn is service and delicious Japanese cuisine meat of taste and hospitality Japan is where recommended that you can enjoy the high-grade hot spring at the highest

Thank Taku-granma
