Matsu No Ma

The western bedroom pampers you with a king–size Tempur–Pedic bed and your choice of pillows: a variety of western and organic Japanese buckwheat hull. All Shirakaba bedding is Comphy Brand microfiber linens which are incredibly soft. The HD TV has HD signal and movies on the hard drive. It has its own private full bath with a shower for two and a toilet area that is behind a privacy wall. The Zen, tatami mat room can be enjoyed as a sitting room or as a second bedroom for two adults or up to two children. This suite gives you direct access to the swimming pool room, plus direct access to a balcony that connects with both the hot tub deck and the footpath to the cliff top gazebo.

Need more space? Ask about our 2 Suite Discount. Have Shirakaba, including Louise & Sadao, all to yourself! Together, the Take No Ma and Matsu No Ma suites can accommodate 8 guests in total. Need anything? Just ask! We are here to pamper you and help you relax and unwind.

Two night minimum stay on all weekends, three night minimum on holiday weekends. EXCEPTIONS: every year Presidents’ week for 10 days, families need not reserve both suites. If booking after noon on Thursday, families may reserve just one suite for that weekend.

Shirakaba welcomes children ages 6 and older but requires families with children under 12 years old to take both suites during their visit, so come with friends, or family, you will have Shirakaba and it’s hosts as your private resort. Children who are still in diapers will not be able to use the swimming pool / hot tub / sauna. Details on our Rates & Policies page.
