We stayed 2 nights with our 2 daughters. We felt immediately comfortable in this cozy cabin where every detail, every expectation has been anticipated by the owners. Kitchen well-equipped to cook. Peaceful site in a nice garden, close to the volcanic national park. The whole family loved its stay at this B&B.

Incredible stay at an incredible cottage!

What an amazing cottage! It was so cozy and comfortable! Jim and Barry have worked very hard to make this a unique place. There was fresh fruit, eggs, milk, cereals and coffee all ready for our use when we got there. The bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace a nice thing to run in the evening and mornings. The grounds were immaculate and the location was ideal. I hope to be back some day. Mahalo!!

This is a gem -- a beautifully maintained cabin from the 1940s. Everything a visitor needs. Perfect location to explore the region.

Perfect hideaway close to Volcano National Park

Absolutely perfect cabin close to Volcano National Park. Stop looking - just book here. Stayed here for 3 nights with my family of 4. Everything was perfect - enough space for everyone. Very close to the National Park entrance (maybe 5 minutes down the road), but in a secluded and private spot. Property is well maintained and lovingly cared for. Would definitely stay here again!

Crater Rim Cabin Perfect For Us

Jim & Barry were extremely friendly and helpful. The cabin was neat, clean, and fully stocked with essentials. The setting is beautiful, and the cabin is located 5 minutes fron Volcano National Park. It was perfect for us.

Quiet peaceful getaway

This is a charming cabin in the middle of a forest. The setting is very peaceful and quiet. It is the perfect place if you are looking to relax. The cabin is amply stocked with anything you might need. The heated blanket on the bed was a wonderful touch and ensured we slept soundly and comfortably. Barry and Jim are pleasant and take good care of their guests, while also providing the perfect amount of space. We would definitely stay here again!

A jewel box of a cabin in an enchanting land.

What a lovely cabin in the hills near the Volcano. The cabin is vintage and taken care of with loving hands. Everything was terrific. Clean, tidy, any supplies one might need and a wonderful supply of goods for a delicious breakfast including eggs, fresh ground coffee, two kinds of dairy, cereals, honey, I could go on and on. Comfortable bed and amazing light streaming into the room in the morning. Great hosts and I could not recommend this property more highly.

An absolutely beautiful setting for this rustic but well stocked cabin. At 4000' elevation the mornings are crisp, but Jim & Barry provided everything we needed (including breakfast cereal, fruit, coffee, and warming blanket). Loved the sunrise and just sitting in the garden that is so serene. Local restaurants in Volcano Village were a pleasant surprise.
