Years ago my husband and I vacationed on the big island and stayed in Kona. We vowed next time we visited to stay in Volcano. After a lot of research we came across Crater Rim Cabin. A number of emails and phone calls later we booked the cabin for 7 nights. A week or so before the trip Jim contacted... More

We spent 4 nights of our Big Island vacation at the Crater Crim Cabin. We are a family of 4 with 2 small children. The cabin was great because there was a separate bedroom as well as a full kitchen. It is a really charming and cozy place, and we really enjoyed taking advantage of their 1+acre of lush landscaped... More

My family of four (two adults, 2 children aged 9 and 12) recently stayed at Crater Rim Cabin for two nights. We were guided to the cabin prior to arrival by emails and phone by the hyper-organized couple who owns the cottage. We felt very welcomed by a whiteboard in the drive as well as a note and box of...

We had the late flight out of LAX and arrived tired and worn out from traveling all day. We got our luggage in Hilo (LOVE the open-air airport!), grabbed our rental car, and wended our way up 11 to Crater Rim. Jim's directions and maps were perfect although in the dark and drizzle we did wonder if the lonely road... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Crater Rim Cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin is a great place to come home to after a full day of seeing the sites at Volcanoes National Park. The cabin itself has a lovely homey feel to it and the gardens around it are very nice. The location was very... More

I stayed at Crater Rim Cabin with my daughter and her husband and it was a delightful experience. The seclusion of this nicely appointed cabin was a good way to begin a week of destressing, while Hilo and its farmers' market with the freshest of exotic and familiar fruits, vegetables and flowers is a short drive away. Barry and Jim... More

The warm welcome by Barry was just the beginning of our enchanting experience at Crater Rim Cabin! Relaxing breakfasts on the deck, a personal tour of the gardens, and absolutely spot-on recommendations about seeing the area added to the charm of our visit to this delightful cabin. The cabin is lovingly and well-taken care of and was by far our... More

My husband and I stayed at the cabin as part of our 25th anniversary vacation to three of the Hawaiian Islands and we can both honestly say that the cabin was the best of all four of our commendations even without the great breakfast feast that was provided for us.
