I wish I could give this cottage a higher rating because Ira, the owner, is such a delightful person. But the cottage is so small that it was not a pleasant place to stay, in my subjective opinion. The bed is pushed sideways into an alcove, so one person has to climb over the other to get out during the night; there is also some kind of water pump outside the bedroom window that runs 24 hours a day. I hate to guess, but I would say that the kitchen-dining-living area is about 10 feet by 6 feet, and the bedroom area not covered by the bed is about 7 feet by 3 feet. Those are very small areas. The bathroom, which has been added on, is large. The landscaping is nice and, once the art gallery closes at 5, you are all by yourself with all the privacy anyone could want. A washer and dryer is available outside of the gallery. WiFi is adequate. Like all of Volcano, it is only a couple of miles to the National Park entrance.
