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

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.

Warmth and Comfort in Rain Forest Setting

Just a few miles from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Crater Rim Cabin offers comfort, convenience, and surprising amenities amidst a tranquil, garden-like setting. The owners are nearby but unobtrusive, ready to provide any advise and assistance you may request. Basic breakfast items, including coffee, are provided and the kitchen is well appointed and functional. Thankfully, there is no TV to tempt you, but internet connection is available if for some reason you've inadvertently packed a computer.

THE Best place to stay for visiting Volcanoes National Park

Wonderful cabin in a lovely fern forest and beautiful garden, spotlessly clean (I'd give it 6 stars if I could), and with everything you need for breakfast supplied by the warm and friendly hosts who are helpful while never being intrusive. Less than a mile from the park which was ideal for great hiking and volcano viewing. It was an idyllic three days.

A Perfect Stay!

Given that Volcano, HI is not a resort, finding a top-notch place to stay was a bit of a challenge. But find it we did. Crater Rim Cabin was perfect. Not only was it located close to the Volcano National Park entrance, as well as the small commercial strip that is the town of Volcano, it was located in a beautiful area across the road from the golf course. The grounds themselves were beautifully landscaped, but it was the cabin itself that was the best. It was a very clean, very comfortable home away from home, outfitted with everything we could want. The proprietors even provided all the basics in the complete kitchen, including fresh roasted coffee, milk, bread, spices, fruit such that we had everything we needed to start the day off right. The proprietors were always available to answer questions and/or help as needed -and they are just delightful people to know (without being nosy or bothersome -they were nowhere around the cabin unless we needed them, in which case you just use the phone's intercom system to hail them. I can't recommend this cabin highly enough -book here and you won't be disappointed.

Delightful retreat!

Truly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this beautiful cabin with its historic character and amazing garden surrounding. Everything we needed was there and it was a terrific location for hikes at Volcano National Park --just a skip down the road (by car) to see the glowing crater at night! We also enjoyed spending a day in Hilo and surrounds and returning to a peaceful idyllic retreat. Barry made us feel very welcome and gave us great suggestions for dinner in the Volcano area.
