... craters road for lunch. We stopped at a lookout that had views of south-point and the 1959 flows. Most of the land is now green and grassy, it would probably make for happier cows than California could produce. (My sandwich, by the way, was delicious!!)
After lunch we headed to the bird sanctuary. This is, pretty much, precisely how it sounds. A 2 mile loop through an area where birds are protected and thick. We saw peacocks and a handful of other species that ...

Were they playing a prank on us? Was there something fishy going on? Did they even exist? Were they ghosts? I generally don’t believe in the paranormal but after much discussion no one in our party has an explanation for what may have happened to the couple who disappeared.

After a quick look-see of the house and unpacking, we threw on our raincoats and drove to the Lava Rock café for linner (our word for lunch/dinner), as it was now 4:30 p.m. The rain continued and it seemed a bit colder. What a difference from the weather of just this ...

When it was almost time for our flight, a guy came in with a 3d map and showed us where we would be flying. He also gave a brief required safety talk, then escorted us out onto the runway.

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Goose Bed & Breakfast Volcano
We spent 2 nights at the Ahuanani lodge. Wow! Every visit to the Big Island should include a trip to the Volcano Village area. It's simply enchanting. The "cottage" was wonderful. Secluded, set in the midst of an Ohia forest, it was quiet, spacious, and well equipped. I would have liked to have spent a week here. We had a fire in the fireplace both nights (the cottage was supplied with a generous amount of firewood). For Thanksgiving we barbequed steaks on the gas grill on the lanai and enjoyed dinner in the cottage's dining room. Afterwards, we watched a movie from the selection of videos provided by our hostess, curled up on a comfortable sofa next to the fireplace. The cottage is only a couple of minutes from Volcano National Park (very conveniently located for sightseeing.) I would recommend this place to any prospective vacationers. You'll love it.
The right decision to stay here
It was the right decision to stay at Country Goose. Elua room has fit our needs. Have enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning. Joan is a great host. If we come back to Big Island, than to Country Goose.
We stayed only one night (unfortunately for us) at the Hideaway Retreat cottage. The cottage was beautiful, serene and spotless. We were right in the middle of the forest and loved all the glass windows that made us really get full enjoyment out of the incredible surroundings. It was one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. The hot tub on the deck added to the relaxation. And I must say the best shower (oversized tile stall with a double head) that we saw all vacation. And last but not least, a big thank you to Joan (the owner) who went out of her way to help us. After we left and went off to another island, I realized I left something behind that had a lot of sentimental value. We called her and she retrieved it and sent it back home to us. I am forever grateful. If you are planning a trip to this area, stay at the Country Goose!
Definity Will Return
We stayed the Country Goose for three nights after staying for six nights in Waikoloa. We thought it was a great place to stay. We stayed at the Hale Oheo cottage, ours was the closest to the road. The house had a kitchen complete with stove,microwave,fridge,sink,utencils,plates,bowels and pots. We cooked dinner here every night. We ate breakfast at the Country Goose every morning which was made my the owner, Joan Early. The breakfast was great and full of healthy foods. We were right near the entrence of Volcanos National Park where we went spent our entire day except to sleep and eat at our cottage. We definitly want to stay here again.
My wife and I truly enjoyed our 2-day stay at the Country Goose. I booked this bed and breakfast based on TripAdvisor reviews, and now I want to report our experiences to the TripAdvisor readers.
All the Comforts of Home
We were delighted with our cottage, Pukawae, from the moment we stepped in the door! Soaring front room with very comfortable furnishings, large dining area, and kitchen around the corner complete with everything one could need. Down the hall past the kitchen were two bedrooms and a bath outfitted with the most luxurious towels I had ever seen. A small sitting room at the top of the stairs (loft) led into a large bedroom and a smaller bath. The whole cottage was exquisitely decorated. We quickly learned how to use the woodstove as the evenings were quite chilly. There was even a library of CD's for our viewing pleasure! Our cottage was a short drive to the home of Joan, our hostess, who served delicious breakfasts, more than we could eat.
We love 'Hale Iki'. My huasband and I recently stayed in the 'Hale Iki' cottage of Country Goose. It's a getaway in the rainforest. The cottage is tuck amongst trees and ferns, very private, you won't see it from the road. Our favorite item in the house is the GIANT bathtub (from the guest book, it seems many past guests also agreed). The cottage is equipped with everything, even washer and dryer. We spend every night in front of the fireplace, there are also 2 heaters which really heats up the place. Every morning we look forward to our breakfast, lovingly presented by our host Joan. We can't say enough about Joan, her place (Country Goose) or her detail for everything. The breakfasts were sensational, and we had a great time chatting with Joan. She really loves what she is doing. She also runs other properties of various sizes. We definitely recommend Country Goose.
Loved 'Hale Iki'
Joan is a fabulous and fun host. "Hale Iki" was amazing, we were in our own fern forest. Will definitely return someday!
All the comforts of home
We really enjoyed staying at Country Goose. The place is about 2 miles away from the Volcano National Park and is located in a private and tranquil location.Joan, the owner, have furnished our room comfortably and completely with all the necessities. She thought of everything! Even ponchos, flashlights (a necessity for hiking after dark) and an emergency kit. Our room has a private entrance and bathroom. There's also outdoor furniture to enjoy the backyard.Breakfast is excellent. We enjoyed the Kona coffee, tea, juice, local fruits, and other breakfast items.Best of all, Joan is a wonderful hostess and we thoroughly enjoyed her company.
Don't Stay Anywhere Else
We have gone back twice. Joan (the owner) is the most fantastic person. The places are incredible and her breakfast is out of this world.
