Rossory House Crow's Nest Studio enjoys an incredible vantage point over the mountains that lie between Kyoto and Lake Biwa. Sitting above the main house with an entirely separate entrance way and facilities, the Crow's Nest is designed for individuals and couples seeking a truly unique location for their stay in Japan.
Living in the Crow's Nest
The Crow's Nest Living Room enjoys some of the most beautiful views of the surrounding mountain scenery. The tree directly outside of the large central window is a yama-zakura a rarer mountain species of the more common sakura cherry tree. There are views of the near and distant mountains. Eagles, hawks and other bird species can be observed at all times during the day.
The living room is the perfect space to watch wildlife, read, work or relax. The space comfortably seats five and so friends can be invited for tea, conversation and dinner or movie nights.
Guests are welcome to request a desk for working in place of the HD TV (with choice of Chromecast or Amazon fire). A smaller desk is a permanent feature of the Crow's Nest bedroom.
