Great place to stay if you are looking to escape the typical tourist traps.
It is located a couple blocks (about a mile) from the stores and restaurants of Volcano village. The village has everything a traveler would need (gas, food, drinks, hygiene, etc...). Its a 20 minute drive to Hilo if you need a taste of civilization. Volcano national park is only 5 minutes away.
The rooms are spread across 3 or 4 locations with each location containing 4 to 6 rooms. I stayed in a room which shared a fully equipped kitchen with 4 other rooms. This gave it a natural home like vibe but felt a little strange at first. The place was a historic house built in 1912 but was upgraded, including free wi-fi.
I only spoke with the staff at check in/out time but they seemed friendly. The room was always cleaned when I returned in the evenings. The lobby offered free kona coffee but they don't offer any in the rooms unless you buy it.
Overall a great time, I hope to return some day!
The cottage is very cozy with everything you would ever need for breakfast or a quick lunch. You were so near an active volcano, you though you could feel the heat. Five minutes from the Park entrance. At night you are only ten minutes from watching the glow of the volcano.
Great B&B. Nice breakfast with cold/hot cereal, different types of toast, fresh local fruit, etc. Kistchy cottagey, welcoming feel. On a farm, roosters wake you up to remind you to get up to see the nearby (10 min drive) active volcano in time for watching the sun rise up over it. 45 min drive from Hilo airport. Very friendly & interesting owner. Great to chill, if desired, around the table in the dining room to discuss travels with other guests or read in the well appointed library. Free internet. Quite clean, not sparkling (i.e. Hard to reach places a little dusty- didn't bother me). Great base camp for exploring the big island.

This was a great little hotel. The room was up to date and clean. The little balcony was great. We enjoyed the hot tub. We only stayed one night but it served our purpose very well. Highly recommended.

This place was awesome! Very great location and it was very private. Loved the room and the bed was very comfortable. They provided a great snack and drink option as well as breakfast items. My only complaint would be that it got a little warm in the room because there is no A/C unless you opened the doors which takes away a little privacy, so a fan would have been nice.
