The house was amazing and the attention that Neil and Hiroko gave us was wonderful too. Hiroko gave us all the options to do around Hakuba. They did a great job cleaning the snow in front of the house to let us go to enjoy the area.
The house had all the things that we needed for cooking, for listening music and the heating was perfect! We will repeat for sure soon! Thank you!
We stayed at Muskoka House for two weeks over Christmas 2016. The house is brand new and beautiful. Truly a perfect fusion of East meets West. Although advertised for 4 people, it is very spacious and could easily host a few more while still remaining cozy and comfortable. We were looking for a place where our family could stretch out and enjoy the surroundings in privacy and comfort and Muskoka House delivered. We also were looking for a place specifically designed for an active household. The location of the dryroom and bathroom were ideal for our uses. Plenty of space to store skis and hats and gloves. Ample room to hang coats and ski pants well away from the rest of the house so that we could enjoy the beautiful interior as it was designed to be enjoyed.
The location near Echoland is ideal. Muskoka House is an easy 7 minute walk to the shuttle bus stop for skiing in one direction and a 7 minute walk in the opposite direction to a plethora of eating options such as Sounds Like Cafe, Cherry Pub and Bear's Cafe in Echoland. But -- and here was the main attraction for us -- the forest location is just sublime. Very relaxing. Very pristine. The house really was a sanctuary of sorts during our holiday.
Neil and his team are awesome. He is friendly and will bend over backwards to make the holiday a success. I can't rate his service highly enough. He catered to every need for our family. He provided easy to understand directions for the house and also offers shopping trips should the need arise.
Our visit to Hakuba and Muskoka House was a resounding success in every way. The village itself is wonderful and the options for skiing are amazing. In particular, I enjoyed Iwatake, the wide open slopes and the panoramic view.
If you are looking for a beautiful, comfortable home to stay in while enjoying the best that Hakuba has to offer, I would highly recommend Muskoka House. If you want top-notch concierge service, Neil is your guy.
