Kilauea Lodge

The National Landmark Kilauea Lodge, in Volcano Village, built as a Boy Scout camp in 1936, was empty for many years when the present owners took it over. The architect did cosmetic restoration on the main building, which was otherwise in perfect condition, then converted a bunkroom over the garage to the first four guest rooms. Shortly after the owners commissioned an additional building done in a compatible style, containing 9 more rooms. The Lodge has received numerous preservation awards and is an excellent example of “adaptive re-use” by the conversion from a Boy Scout camp to an upscale destination.
