Nestled in a lush rainforest just 6 miles from Volcano National Park, this picturesque cottage will allow you to experience everything Volcano has to offer!


From the moment you first arrive, you'll fall in love with this breathtaking setting. A variety of native plants, trees, and rainforest vegetation surround the property, providing plenty of privacy and tranquility. Inside, the cottage feels very warm and inviting, featuring cozy furnishings, tasteful decor, and large windows that let in glorious natural light and provide views of Ohia trees and Hapu'u ferns. After an exciting day exploring the area, come home to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Experience outdoor living to the fullest by spending time out on the generously-sized lanai that spans the entire length of the cottage - it's the perfect spot to enjoy a tropical cocktail while listening to the sounds of the rainforest and pleasant birdsong.

You'll love touring through the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, which are situated directly across the street from the cottage. Volcano Village is just 5 miles away and offers art galleries, restaurants, wineries, 2 general stores, and a Sunday farmers market. On days when you'd prefer water-based activities, venture to Punal'u Black Sand Beach Park, a unique destination and favorite resting spot for protected green sea turtles. Hilo, the second-largest city on the island, is a 23-mile drive from the cottage and boasts several quaint shops along the bayfront.

Relaxing, peaceful and Meticulous

  • 5 of 5

Fern Cottage is gorgeous and beautifully furnished. We felt like we were stepping into a spa! Accoutrements such as fresh flowers, lotions, coffee and slippers were left out for us. The hosts greeted us on arrival and were so pleasant and helpful. The grounds are so peaceful. I enjoyed having coffee and wine out on the lanai. We were close to Volcanoes National park. I would recommend touring the park, doing a Lava Boat Tour, seeing the tidal pools, the Black Beach at Punalu'u. We had a great time; this place is a gem!

The BEST Lodging When Visiting Kilauea and Volcano

  • 5 of 5

My husband and petite twenty-something year-old daughter and I absolutely loved the Fern Cottage. The hosts are very friendly, kind and most helpful. The large room is very well-appointed, comfortable and immaculately clean. The full kitchen was delightful for us to cook together. The table comfortably seats four people. And, the Fern Cottage is a terrific basecamp for cyclists to explore Volcano and surrounding areas. After cycling beginning near 3,000feet altitude at the Cottage, the extra large shower was luxurious. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and ease of the thoughtfully designed Fern Cottage. Our next trip to the Island of Hawai'i will no doubt include another stay at the Fern Cottage.

Also, although there is easy parking, a ramp to the front door, and single-floor set-up, the bathroom door might be a little narrow for a wheelchair accessibility. This detail should be further discussed, if needed.

Great hosts, wonderful place & perfect proximity to the National Park. We were up very early to see the volcano glow & to go birding. If you are looking to sleep in, know that a rooster kicks in well before dawn.

This was a perfect base camp for our many adventures in and around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The cottage is comfortable, and beautifully designed, with everything you need. Fresh flowers were a nice touch! Thank you Carter and Elaine!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay for 4 days in this cozy cottage. The owners gave superbly detailed instructions and every little thing seemed to have thought put into it. It's very peaceful and gives one easy access to everything from Hilo to Punalu'U Black Sand beach. Get supplies from a grocery store in Hilo or Kona before coming in as local stores simply won't do. The orchid nursery next door is pretty amazing.

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fern Cottage was cozy and comfortable. It had everything we needed to explore the Volcano area. We spent several days hiking the National Park and evenings stargazing. You can't beat this view of the Milky Way! We would definitely recommend this location to family and friends. Hope to make a trip back soon!
