I truly have NEVER been more welcomed, felt more pampered by all the "extras", or had a nicer stay than we did at Bob and Bonnie's Artist Cottage in Volcano. The list of great things is off the chart (and I don't throw around complements without merit). So charming with fabulous artwork all around, charming porch with rocker's, peaceful, quiet, cool temps, (no mosquitos up there either). No kidding when I say, friends or family haven't thought of all the extras these two have! Every imagineable & over the top, luxury toiletry items, sumptuous food items etc. I cannot name them all. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I better keep this gem to myself or we'll never get back in there. I wish we had stayed many more days. Just outside of Volcano park etc. Great experience. Will be back for certain. Bob is a hoot too! Bonnie is a terrific artist and BOTH are super hosts.

We stayed 3 nights at the Artist's Cottage. The cottage was conveniently located right outside of the Volcano National Park and it was a charming and relaxing place to come back to after a long day. The cottage had everything we needed and Bonnie and Bob were very thoughtful host--they truly took care of us. We especially loved the kitchen and the patio! So lovely. We highly recommend the place for anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat and wants to explore the beauty of the VNP.
