When envisioning a Hawaiian vacation, sand and surf are often the first things to come to mind. But Hawaii is about more than just beautiful beaches. It's diverse geography offers the opportunity for an explosive vacation ... quite literally, at this historic estate located just a mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Dating back to 1931, this charming hotels has a selection of suites in the main residence and freestanding cottages. The latter are our top pick for lodging and include the one-bedroom Hale Lehua Cottage (the property's oldest cottage) with a lava rock fireplace and covered lanai, and the Hale Ohia Cottage with a sitting area, game table, three bedrooms (one with an antique four-poster bed), full kitchen and covered lanai for outdoor barbecuing. Beyond the landscaped grounds, attractions include the national park, where guests can day trip along Crater Rim Drive, which circles the caldera of Kilauea Volcano. In addition, Hilo Town is home to museums, boutiques and a farmers market, and Volcano Winery gives you a chance to try blends of traditional wine grapes with island fruits such as yellow guava and jaboticaba berry.
