We stayed a few nights while touring Volcano National Park. The location of the property is secluded and relaxing. The room was well furnished and comfortable. We loved having a fireplace in the room for the chilly evenings. This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast so the experience was new to us. Lenny is a wonderful host... More

My wife and I stayed here while touring the volcano area. It's a little off the beaten-path, but a great place to retreat to. Home is wonderful, Lenny is a perfectionist and you can see it in this place. Everything you need and feels like "mom was just there". CHECK GOOGLE EARTH and find the place before going there.

Stayed three nights in Volcano and can highly recommend this retreat. The rooms are large and tastefully furnished, excellent mattress and pillows. Small but adequate and well-appointed kitchenette allows the possibility for making meals, although I ate dinner at the nearby Thai restaurant. Excellent mattress and pillows, along with the quiet setting insures a good night´s sleep. The gas fireplace... More

Lenny is a great host. You will actually get a feeling that you are in the middle of a rain forest. The room we stayed for 2 nights was Volcano suite. It was very nicely furnished. Lenny did a great job in paying attention to details and also in preparing breakfast. He provided us binoculars, torch and umbrella to have... More

The moment you arrive in this rainforest retreat, you feel not only welcome, no, you feel home! Lenny is such a great host and makes you feel great! The only downside was that we had to leave after one night only! If you get the chance to visit Volcano, please visit Lenny!

What a fantastic place to stay! Our room was very spacious, extremely clean, nicely decorated and so comfortable and relaxing. The grounds are beautiful, with lovely plants and trees that create a peaceful atmosphere and secluded setting. Lenny is a wonderful host and really has thought of everything. We followed his emailed directions and had no trouble finding the place.... More

Our 2 night stay could not have been any nicer. The room was ready when we arrived, Lenny got us oriented and then left us alone. Everything you can imagine you'd need is in the spotlessly clean and uniquely decorated room. Convenient to the park yet quiet and secluded. Just great. We even enjoyed reading the comments from other travelers... More

The Volcano Fern Forest Retreat is just a few miles away from the Volcano National Park on the Big Island, but it is very secluded. We had trouble finding it, then discovered we never printed the detailed directions from the nice owner, Lenny. The room is very large -- like a studio apartment with a tiny kitchen and regular-sized bath.... More

We were here for two nights and chose based on past reviews and what a great choice!! Lenny was great to email immediately after booking. He gave hints on the location so we were not AS surprised to locate it in the dark which was difficult. But once we made it, it was amazing! He had the place lit up... More

We were here for 1 night in August to go on our lava hike. I had some emails exchanges with Lenny, who informed us beforehand that GPS may not work in the area, so gave us direct driving directions. I was a bit worried at first about staying in the rain forest, with bugs everywhere. To my surprise, it was... More
