Tel: 808 967 7366's insider take:

Located inside the chilly volcano rain forest, the lodge promotes its "International Fireplace of Friendship"—hokey, but it was established when the building was a YMCA in the '30s. It's a good place to warm up after exploring the hot and cold lava of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park a mile away. Owner and chef Albert Jeyte, who was an Emmy-winning makeup artist for Magnum, P.I. in another life, has also established a surprisingly good restaurant. Who knew you could get a German sausage plate in Hawaii? More cozy than luxurious, the 14 unique rooms and stand-alone cottages are, nonetheless, completely charming. Some accommodations have a fireplace, and all have access to a hot tub. Golf aficionados should book the two-bedroom Pii Mauna, located on the sixth fairway of the Volcano Golf Course (a short distance from the main grounds).
