A Trip To This Majestic Hawaii Lodge Will Take You Back In Time
A trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is always wonderful, but for a relaxing getaway, check out the park’s historic Volcano House lodge. This property combines Hawaiian tradition and history with stunning views of the Halemaumau crater.
Volcano House got its start as a humble, one-room house in 1846, and it has a rich history.
The first Volcano House was just a tiny grass and lodgepole structure. In 1866, it was replaced by a larger, four-bedroom lodge. Mark Twain stayed there, and even wrote a glowing review of the lodge in his book "Roughing It." The original lodge burned down in 1940, but was rebuilt in 1941.
After several additions and renovations over the years, Volcano House now offers 33 beautiful guest rooms.
Choose from standard rooms or volcano crater view rooms. All view rooms offer views of the Kilauea caldera, and most feature far-off vistas of the Halemaumau crater.
Your room includes everything you need for a fabulous stay.
Comfortable queen or king-sized beds provide you a cozy place to sleep, and you'll have all the amenities you'll need. The room includes complimentary wi-fi, and you can even check out an iPad at the front desk. Rooms are not equipped with televisions so that you can spend your time here without noisy distraction.
The lodge is situated at 4,000 feet, which allows for some splendid views and keeps it nice and cool.
Temperatures here average a comfortable 67-73 degrees Fahrenheit. The property includes many ohia trees, which bloom with gorgeous lehua blossoms.
The gathering area includes plenty of seating and features a lava rock fireplace.
On chilly days, it's the perfect spot to curl up.
Enjoy some quiet relaxation with a view.
Chat with loved ones, read a book or just sit and gaze at the incredible view from the lodge's main room.
Dine from 7 AM to 8:30 PM at The Rim, a restaurant at Volcano House with a view.
The sunset view from the dining room is spectacular.
Dinner offerings include fresh, local fish, steaks, chicken, lamb, pasta and more.
Live music is also offered every night from 6 PM to 8:30 PM. Call for reservations: (808) 930-6910
During your stay, explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
