Volcano Mist Cottage sits in the middle of its own little paradise. We had a great time, would recommend it to all of our friends and family and will hopefully make it back.

A Magical Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Volcano Mist Cottage! It was heavenly with all the amenities one could hope our very own rain forest! Will definitely come back!

Four Wonderful Days in Volcano Park Rain Forest

5 on February 27, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at Volcano Mist Cottage. It suited us perfectly - an oasis to return to each afternon, after hours of hiking on amazing volcanic landscapes. We thought we would explore some of the local eateries, but after our coffee hour in the hot tub and wine/cheese on the veranda, we cooked in and loved every minute.

A Special Treat

Volcano Mist Cottage provides a very special and comfortable stay in the midst of the native Ohi`a and Fern rainforest. Every detail in the cottage is carefully accounted for, from the sumptuous bed and bedding, to the artwork on the walls, to the locally made English Muffins and lilikoi butter. The cottage provides a wonderful retreat, with the sound of native bird song in the morning, and the fun and activity of Volcano National Park only minutes away.

Fantastic as always

This was our fourth trip back to the Big Island and to Volcano Mist Cottage. I would have to say this is our favorite escape from the cold Alaska winter. If you are looking for a private romantic place to stay for a couple this is for you. I gave it only 3 stars for dining since it is pretty much bring your own (they have a full kitchen). It really should be N/A. There are some great places to eat in volcano, and lots of wonderful farmer's markets for fruit.

Such a beautiful and relaxing space!

Location was fantastic. Even with lots of rain, the cottage was beautiful. The service was impeccable. It was really easy to find the cottage and get the keys. The spa is serene. I cannot wait to return!

Neat place, love it!

Honeymoon in paradise!

5 on October 24, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed at Volcano Mist Cottage on part 2 of our honeymoon and it was easily our favorite place. We loved the serenity, fireplaces, hot tub, outdoor shower and stocked kitchen. We even were greeted with a welcome gift. If you are wanting some peace and quiet and love nature this is the place for you. Our time there was cherished and we hope to return someday!

Awesome mid vacation retreat

5 on October 15, 2013

Spent 2 nights at the cottage and had an excellent time. Nearby Volcano National park was closed but this just removed any temptation to leave - so we stayed in and fully enjoyed the cottage for a few days as a retreat in the middle of our vacation. And it was great. Awesome design. First class feel. Highly recommended.

Cozy cottage in the rain forest

4.2 on September 22, 2013

Cozy cottage in the rain forest only 2 miles from Volcano National Park made it a perfect location. Their website is true to what you get. The owners and manager know that the little things make a big difference with the things they offer at the VMC. Loved the outdoor seating area with fireplace (didn't use it given the temperatures during our stay), outdoor shower and hot tub. Info book on coffee table was very useful too. Only drawback was the size of the bedroom (bed took up most of the room) which we easily got over with the nice comfortable mattress and linens. Breakfast is continental breakfast but there are good places to eat nearby. Would highly recommend this place if you want peace and tranquility and close proximity to Volcano National Park.
