This is one of the original cottages in Niseko - they all used to be like this! Cosy and quaint, Yotei Cottage has one proper bedroom,  plus a loft space which has three single beds in it. There are full size windows, basic but comfortable furnishings, perfectly adequate kitchen and laundry facilities. The cottage sleeps up to 5 guests, making it excellent value for small groups and families. It's all a bit dated, but the charm is sincere and the 70s stylings of the building retro-cool.
