We normally stay in large commercially owned places when we travel, but since there are not many options in Volcano Village,we chose to stay here. Think of it more as a bed and breakfast. Free breakfast is offered in the morning (cooked fresh) but you really don't have any say as to what you want - since the total number... More

What a wonderful way to end a busy day. Great rooms and great host. The whole family enjoyed a tasty breakfast. Clean and comfortable. If you are in Volcano Village for the night, this is certainly a comfortable place to revive.

Dan was gracious and helpful. The location is magical, surrounded by rainforest so that all you hear are the birds. The rooms are beautiful and spacious with huge walk in closets and wonderful Lanais.

My wife and I spent five wonderful days at the Volcano Forest Inn B&B. It is conveniently located about a mile from Volcano National Park. Volcano, HI is a very small village with three good restaurants, 1 ¢, 1 $, and 1 $$. Our room was spacious and clean. It had a king-size bed, cable TV, and direct access to... More

When was the last time you could really hear birds sing? If you live in a city or a good sized town it's rare to sit outside and just embrace the quiet and listen to many different song birds. This beautifully maintained inn is up a long driveway. We watched native pheasants, doves and many songbirds flitting through the forest... More

If you're interested in Hawaiian volcanic activities, this B&B is the perfect location. Dan, the Manager, was a lovely helpful guy and made the most delicious breakfasts. The Volcano Forest Inn is also near the black sand beach with sleeping turtles; the green sand beach (don't forget to wear a hat @ sunscreen - it's about a 3 mile walk!);... More

Stayed 5 nights and we're blown away by the size of the room, the relaxed atmosphere and rainforest right around us. Walking distance from the post office, convenience store, art gallery, restaurants, 2 miles from the Volcanoes National Park and 3 miles from the winery. Very generous and filling breakfasts and Dan was very helpful. Our preferred place to stay... More

This place is the perfect spot to stay overnight while visiting the crater. Not only was it so close, it was sooo cozy and clean. The room was big. Breakfast in the am was great and the staff (young lady and gentlemen) were very accommodating and super nice. They made my husband and I feel like family. We stayed there... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Park and the small volcano village. The entire house is very new, and the rooms because of this are extremely spacious. The rooms are kept very clean and the beds + linens are comfy and clean as well. The location is very close to the Park (5 min drive) and also... More

The hosts here were very friendly and helpful. The location is nice and set a good ways back from the main road, and the room was large, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was convenient and delicious, and we got to meet some interesting folks who were also staying there.
