19-4183 Road E, Volcano Village
What a find! This inn is small, just over an acre, and was originally built as an artist’s workshop, but was converted in 2006 with buildings added over time. The stand-alone rooms are set amid a very lush, dense tropical forest of native plantings. Each feels very private and intimate. All are lavishly furnished in different themes with expensive bedding and fireplaces. Fresh flowers, bathrobes, slippers and flashlights are supplied. Breakfast is placed in your room the previous afternoon, so you may enjoy it at your leisure and usually includes a hot dish that may be warmed in your microwave along with the usual fruit, coffee, etc. The TVs are only for DVD viewing from their free library. Courtesy phone in lobby (your cell may not work). They have a masseuse on call and offer different packages and add-ons like a pre-packed picnic lunch or a traditional lei making class. Great staff. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Rooms (300–600 sq. ft.) are $280–$455. 2-night minimum during busy seasons.
