With very limited options in Volcano, we chose this accommodation. It was good. Room was clean, though a bit old. Has some authentic charm. The major downfall was the short window of time for check in, and the fact that check in is in another building on the other side of town. Having to drive there to check in and out was an inconvenience. We stayed in Lokahi Lodge and it kind of felt like a grown up hostel.

Better than expected from the pictures and online description. It was quiet, comfortable, pleasant scenery. Felt like a rainforest retreat. Convenient parking. Be sure to make dinner reservations as there are not a lot of restaraunts nearby and they fill up fast.
Very clean and nicely updated. Very close to the park.
Overall quite happy with our stay.

We stayed in the Ohia room. The room is huge, and beautifully decorated, with a perfect mix of luxury and rustic. There are big windows on three out of four sides, making the room very bright, and looking out onto the farm and pond. In addition to the bed area (with a couch at the foot of the bed facing the window) there's a sitting area next to a small kitchenette. Then there's my dream bathroom. Huge Jacuzzi, and a really nice stone shower with glass bricks letting in lots of sunlight. The room is attached to the main house, but it almost has its own separate entrance, since there's a door from the outside just beside the door to the room. Down some stairs is where you park your car, in a covered spot under the house (note that although the room is in the lower level of the house, the house is raised so the windows and balcony are actually on second-story level). Everything about the room was better than we could have expected, and it seemed like it could easily have been worth twice what we paid.
The breakfasts were wonderful, beginning with beautifully cut local fruit, and lots of other choices. Theresa, the owner, is a fountain of information about things to do on the island. We are not super organized travelers, and booking hotels in advance is about as much planning as we normally do. But Theresa gave us a rundown of all the best things to see, and when to see them.

We visited 3 islands, and intentionally chose this remote alternative on the Big Island. We followed the instructions to check in with the offsite managers, so that was easy. We stayed in the 2 story Cedar Cottage, which we would recommend. The other 3 units are in another building, so we had no real contact with others. Basic breakfast items are left in the fridge daily. While this was fine for us, if you are used to substantial breakfasts, stock up at a Hilo grocery. The one real weakness was controlling water temp in the shower, which is a result of conservation measures. All water in the cottages comes from a rain collection system and is low pressure.-- in itself a good thing. The hot water is run through an on-demand unit -- again good in itself. However, the two goods aren't compatible. On-demand systems are based on water volume passing through it -- if the flow is too low, it shuts off the heating element. So it took constant fumbling to avoid a too hot or too cold shower. There is no AC, but being almost 4000 feet up, it shouldn't be missed. Contact with the managers was minimal, but friendly. Being in a rain forest, pack rain gear -- it rains 300 days a year.

There was nothing wrong with the place. It was clean and our room was very large. The people were nice. The breakfast was nice. It's just that we weren't aware it was a bed and breakfast. We aren't really bed and breakfast kind of people. We like to be completely independent. Our only complaint was that we didn't know it was just a place with 4 large bedrooms and we happened to be the only people there for the night.

This is a lovely place with large rooms and beautiful decorations. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the rainforest type garden. It is very close to the Volcano National Park. We had a wonderful choice of foods for breakfast including a half of a mango with chopped strawberries and bananas inside. It was delicious! The proprietor was friendly and knowledgeable regarding the area. I would definitely recommend this place as a base to enjoy the park.

We were pleasantly surprised when we drove up to the Artist Cottage. We were met by the owners daughter who showed us around the cottage. They had even provided food in the refrigerator for breakfast. It was so relaxing to take our time in the morning and we could sit and eat without having to go to a restaurant or grocery store. Everything was very clean and had many paintings done by the owner. We would definitely recommend the Artist Cottage to anyone visiting the area of Volcano.

this place is owned by a owner who collected a lot of arts and fine staffs. the breakfast is very good and healthy! But, as a very conservative place, shower experience is not very good. Hot water can only exist about 1~2 minutes after you turn on the tab. Most of the time we take shower with cold water. Besides that, the place is warm and comfortable.
