Volcano House Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 4-6)
Hawaiian Lifestyle awaits you in this 105 year old notched ohia log cabin located one mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home of Madam Pele, the fire goddess, and Mata, the love goddess. This rustic, charming hideaway is set in a lush, native tropical rain forest among tree ferns, ginger, purple princess flowers and tall sugi pines.
This log cabin is one of the first homes built in this historic area, yet it is fully equipped with modern conveniences and offers a full kitchen and bath, television, cable, VCR, cassette player and telephone. The double winding staircase leads to sleeping space for four, on a king and double bed. Two additional guests can sleep downstairs by the fire on the two sofas. Years ago, cowboys drove cattle through here and used the cabin as their rest stop. Rumor has it that this may have also been a speakeasy during prohibition. Warm yourself by the wood stove and let your mind wonder at the tales the log walls could tell.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Staying in the cabin was the "highlight" of our stay in Hawaii ! From the cabin we we got up early each morning and drove to the volcano to take pictures of the volcano crater at (still night) sunrise. My wife is a photographer so we have pictures of the volcanic glow against the night sky. We also purchased a box of orchids from the store that is nearby Volcano and they are growing in our house.
Lastly just enjoying the log cabin was fun for us. Walking on creaking 100 year old
wood planks, listening to occational drizzling rain hitting the cabin, walking into the "moss" back yard and looking and hawaiian flowers, plantsand birds made for very peaceful down times after we got back from an outing to some place. My wife and I highly recommend staying at the log cabin if you are visiting the Volcano area.
