Ebina Chalet and Lodge is an epic old onsen chalet/hotel on the outskirts of Niseko that can be rented wholly as a chalet or singular lodge/hotel rooms.
Ebina Chalet and Lodge is an epic old chalet-hotel – recently sold and refurbished – in the forested, onsen hot spring-covered landscape on the outskirts of Niseko. The huge premises can be rented wholly as a chalet and sleep 21 people, or singular lodge/hotel rooms can be rented if the entire chalet isn’t booked out. It’s a big peaceful old building in a beautiful location, and it even comes with its own onsen hot spring baths inside.
Ebina is located in a private location near the resorts of Annupuri (part of the Niseko United ski resorts) and Moiwa, which is another resort on a small mountain alongside. The two resorts offer excellent beginner and intermediate skiing, and some of the best back country and slack country powder skiing in Niseko. The two resorts can actually be skied between.
Ebina started life as a luxurious private retreat for a wealthy Japanese family in 1980s. It went on to become a boutique hotel before becoming a private residence once more. Because of its opulent background it enjoys hotel-style space in the lobby, ceiling heights and corridors. It also has its own onsen hot spring bath, ski storage room, drying room and games room.
Morning drop off and afternoon pick up service to and from either Moiwa or Annupuri resorts is included in the cost of the stay, as is evening drop off to Annupuri restaurants. The lodge managers live onsite and can help you with any ski hire or ski school requirements, activity booking, as well as restaurant and taxi bookings or airport transfers.
A dedicated concierge service is available, including on-demand ski field and restaurant drop offs – please ask for more details when enquiring about this property.
