Loved our stay here in Volcano. This quiet and secluded location is very close to the Volcano Park and has 2 cabins on property. We did not experience any problems getting here but it is definitely off the beaten path so just keep going down the road until it becomes one lane and then you are almost there! We stayed here with our 2 kids (6 and 9) and they loved the loft (including the ukelele they both tried playing). The owner was friendly and helpful. We bought groceries in Hilo before driving up the mountain to this place. The cottage is very well equipped with anything you may need for cooking or packing a picnic. We cooked/picnic'ed all our meals for our 2 night stay. There is not much in the "village" of volcano so bring what you will need so you don't need to head back out. We went to the farmer's market on Sunday morning in the village on the owner's advice and it was great with lots of food/drink and even some artist vendors and trinkets to buy. Also, if you have kids, I would definitely recommend a night hike through the rainforest to the lava tube (which is lit), our kids loved it and so did I once my husband reassured me there are no snakes on the big Island.
