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!

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.

Stayed 2 nights in Jan 2016. Spotlessly clean, full of rustic charm and a perfect location for the Volcano National Park - you can see the glow from the immaculate gardens. Barry and Jim's care and attention to detail for their guests is second to none. This place is a gem, if you're wanting a cabin in Volcano, you have to stay here! A&N, UK

After researching options extensively, we were lucky to book at Crater Rim Cabin. The owner Jim was so responsive to our emails. The booking was efficient and smooth. We were welcomed by Barry who showed up how everything worked. We loved the cabin. It has many touches (an electric blanket, guide books, DVDs of the volcanos, a box of chocolate as welcome). The cabin was spacious and comfortable. The location is great, 5min to the park and village. The best was the warm welcome and service. We would highly recommend the Crater Rim Cabin!

Best place to stay if you're doing the volcano thing. Both Jim and Barry are geologists and very knowledgeable and very helpful. You couldn't ask for a better experience!

My husband and I have a lovely stay at the Crater Rim Cabin. The cabin is very comfortable and cosy. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge is well stocked to cook a nice breakfast. We will definitely return for another visit!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this 5-star review. We are always very happy when our guests are pleased with Crater Rim Cabin. We hope to see you here again soon! Mahalo!

We were so content about staying at this cute cabin equipped with everything. Best location for visiting the volcanoes. You're sleeping in a new forest just like the ones on your hiking trails. You're secluded yet minutes from the national park and restaurants in town. Our host Barry was so hospitable, funny, thorough and informative. We arrived earlier than expected. Not a problem for Barry. The man spends hours and takes pride in having the place clean for you. Breakfast was perfectly satisfactory and his recs for places to eat were right on the mark. The place is so close to the park that when my friend wanted to retire for the evening, I dropped him off and went right back to take more shots of the volcano. Glad I did so. The mist had cleared for good photos plus I experienced a group of Hawaiians suddenly chanting in unison to Pele, the goddess of fire, and her red glow in otherwise pitch darkness. What a special experience that I'll never forget. Even though I should be watching the Golden State Warriors game right now, I wanted to take a moment to chant praises for Crater Rim Cabin.

5 nights at the Crater Rim Cabin. Breakfast foods were waiting for us upon arrival to prepare each morning. Days were spent at Volcano National Park and lower Island attractions. Every evening, returned tired but found the cabin warmed and the electric blanket turned on to add to the coziness. This secluded cabin (or Bungalow) was charming in every way! Full bedroom, full living room, full kitchen, nice bathroom, and a spectular yard. Barry and Jim do vacation rental the right way. We were greeted, shown the accomodations, told a bit about the area, and then let us be for the remainder of the trip. This is a very special place!!!
Four room cabin. Bedroom with California King bed and pullout sofa that opens into standard double bed! Amenities include full kitchen, with microwave, smooth-top range, coffee maker, filtered water, and a nice selection of breakfast items, including freshly ground coffee beans! Private bathroom with shower!
