The two Twin cottages are mirror images of each other. There is one queen bed in an alcove and two twin beds in each living area. They have apartment kitchens with dining for four, dressing rooms with lavatory separate from the shower and toilet. Usually we rent them one at a time, but the Twins rented together are a favorite for couples traveling together or family groups, eight, or even 10 people with two futon for kids. They boast amazing views of the forest and the pasture!

We ask smokers to go outside and away from where others congregate.
We do take one-nighters if less than 7 days to reservation date. Please contact us for early check-in or late checkout, to find out if we can accommodate you.
We sometimes allow pets, in some units, but only by prior permission.
We expect parents to keep control of their children, and will charge for damage. First farm-visit with Bonnie, and never without parent along.
We are famous for giving great sleep, for all guests and our quiet neighbors, and expect our guests to honor that.
TAX NOTE: The State of Hawaii charges excise tax and transient accommodations tax. The effective rate is 13.41%. We include that markup in the rates posted on Airbnb.
Our pets do not go in the guest units.
Our Heeler dog is around and the neighbors' small dogs and cats visit, but please do not let any of them inside. That cute friendly miniature poodle? She likes to dump trash cans...

That is me, Bonnie and hubby and co-innkeeper Alan Miller in the photo, with our daughter, Joan, off to the left. Joan is also around helping us run Volcano Guest House. That photo was taken in Lijiang, Yunnan, China last year when we were on OUR trip of a lifetime, guided by our daughter-in-law, Jingjing Zhang, from Datong, who is married to our son Noel. They live in Bellevue Washington, and work in technology.
I, Bonnie, was born on Maui, grew on on Kauai and Oahu, went to college in Ohio, and lived on a Greek island for a year before coming back to Hawaii where I made a career in community organizing - the community gardens in Honolulu, our local park's public/private partnership here in Volcano, community development planning and social justice advocacy for various county, state, and feds before turning to full-time work at our B&B in 2000, when we went from 2 to five units. I come from Iowa farm and Melungeon stock, thus my milk cows and ducks. Nowadays, I take care of the reservations and landscape and farm.
Alan built it all, starting in 1979, when we moved to this place and lived in a tent for the first year. He continues to maintain it, take care of the breakfast fixins and welcome you. He was born in Lima, Peru of parents from New York and Arkansas, including Hawaii Missionary ancestors. Alan has been a special ed teacher and builder, building and remodeling homes for a cadre of long time client/friends until he, too, went full-time on the B&B when we went to more cottages and houses in 2006.
