The Kilauea Lodge Country Inn and Restaurant surrounded by native, endemic Ohia forest and rare and protected native birds, remains a landmark in Volcano Village since 1938. Opening in 1988, the Lodge occupancy rates range from 77-80% and is highly regarded within the community and hospitality industry. The new owners will inherit an abundance of established good will and excellent reputation. The lodge atmosphere and award winning dining room w/ European-inspired cuisine using local ingredients, big roaring fireplace, soaring cedar ceilings, and Koa dining tables creates a unique mountain ambiance found only on the Big Island of Hawaii just 40 min. from Hilo International. The 12 charming rooms on 5 forested acres continually receive excellent ratings on travel sites. Exuding an Old Hawaii rustic, forest, mountain charm, the 12 rooms feature Hawaiian quilts, forest flowers, fireplaces, photos and paintings by Volcano Village artists. The business provides significant room for further development including 24 proposed vacation rental units and 10 future cottages; the contiguous 5 acres and the 1.18 acre lots are included w/the sale. The 3 lots equal 11.474 acres. Adjacent to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park w/over 1 million visitors a year, Volcano Village is a small community that boasts a bountiful Farmers Market, restaurants and art gallery, a general store and many private, luxury vacation homes and B&Bs. Although most visitors to this Big Island destination come to explore the volcanic attractions of Kilauea, Volcano Village offers a fern-shaded getaway worlds apart from the quintessential Hawaiian vacation of white sandy beaches and palm trees. The Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant perseveres as the town's highly acclaimed inn and restaurant. Kilauea Lodge was once home to the YMCA Camp and in WWII an Army radio camp. Architecturally it is significant for its representation of late 19th-20th century designs in the Craftsman Style.
