Experience the warm relaxing atmosphere Crater Rim Cabin offers. Your own personal & private retreat for romance, rekindling, and exploration! Amenities include full kitchen, with microwave, coffee maker, filtered water, breakfast supplies, in-room TV-DVD, king size bed, and tremendous views of Hawaii's constantly active volcano nearby. We are located near the summit of Kilauea Volcano at an elevation of 4050 feet, on the sunny side of Volcano Village. The southern end of the property is on the boundary of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with its amazing landscape and active volcanism. Of interest to golfers, we are situated a short walk away from the Volcano Golf and County Club... a beautiful course with views of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

Volcano get away

4.0 on December 15, 2014

Pros- spotlessly clean, cosy and well stocked with breakfast items, fruit and chocolate covered Macadamia Nuts. Very quite, close to golf course, Volcano National Park, local Winery and village. Cons- lack of technology on the entertainment side. No tv in the living area. No cable or dish available in fact no tv channels at all. Poor wifi signal unless you connect in the bedroom. No docking station for music from I-phone etc. only audio/visual entertainment was a limited choice of music CDs or a DVD of volcano eruptions from the past.

Met all my expectations!

Cabin was wonderful. Close to Kilauea! Barry and Jim were great hosts. If you're going Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, this "home away from home" is not to be missed.

Truly a gem

The location of the cabin is perfect. It is only a 10-minute drive to the Volcano National Park and Volcano town. The cabin is clean and well stocked with linens. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with eggs, bread, coffee, cereal, milk, etc. Barry is a fantastic host and made our stay truly memorable. We will be back again!

We love this cabin!

This was our second stay at Crater Rim Cabin. We were there in 2008 for 2 or 3 nights and this time stayed 7 nights! The owners are fantastic and it is truly paradise. We like staying off the beaten path and this fits the bill beautifully. The cabin is beautifully appointed and they have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The kitchen was full of wonderful coffee, small cereals, eggs, butter, jam, and excellent bread. It was great to start the day whenever we wanted because we didn't have to go find a restaurant. The surroundings are unbelievable and so close to Volcano National Park where we spent as much of our time as possible. We will be back again! Thank you for making both trips incredibly memorable!

Perfect quiet and peaceful

Outstanding cleaness. Our hosts were fonderfull and very helpful. We warmly revommand this place for anyone respectfull of the nature. no dinig was provided so i rated "medium". Nevertheless the kitchen is really clean and we coyld prepare our breakfast and dinner easyly. Fo your dinner you better bring your food for the general store is really poor.

Fantastic little cable with superb hosts!

Two nights wasn't enough! We booked this secluded little place simply because it was close to the Volcano Park where we were going to spend a couple of days exploring and didn't have any expectations above it being a functional base for doing so. However, the rustic yet comfortable and immaculately clean Crater Rim Cabin was far above our expectations, it is set in well kept and very pretty gardens and is a nice relaxing place to spend time without venturing near the Park! If you're looking for a modern, minimalist hotel type suite with all mod-cons then this is not the place for you! If you're looking for a peaceful retro-style hunting cabin then this fits the bill precisely. Barry was a perfect host, very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We had a great couple of days and could have easily spent a whole week there!

unique setting dont miss it one of a kind

Perfect mountain retreat

4.6 on July 08, 2014

Wonderful cabin in the forest. Cozy and inviting, with all amenities. Breakfast supplied was basic- sweetened cereals, oatmeal, bread, eggs, jam, milk, cream and coffee. Chocolates were a nice welcome. Barry was so nice and helpful. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. Comfortable bed- electric blanket and gas heater were welcome- it gets very cold at night ( bring slippers). The location was excellent for visiting the townsite and Volcano's Park. Not a lot of dining options in town, but a few good choices.

Great place to stay

We stayed for couple of nights at the end of june.It is definitely a good place to stay if you want to be closer to the volcanic park.
