  • RICH IN ISLAND HISTORYBuilt in 1938 for the YMCA, Hale O Aloha was a beautiful ten acre retreat that housed thousands of Hawaiis children during their Volcano camp explorations. Harold Lucas, Secretary of the local branch of the YMCA in the 1930s, came up with the idea for The Fireplace of Friendship. Harold had many friends associated with the YMCA, Rotary International, and the Lions Clubs. During camp construction, Harold sent letters all over the world, asking for rocks or coins to embed in the fireplace. He received responses from across the U.S. and from dozens of countries and territories including Hong Kong, New Zealand, Scotland, Lebanon, Bulgaria, Malaya, India, Canada, Turkey, Thailand, the Philippines, Norway, and the Holy Land.

    He received over 500 coins from over 50 countries, rocks of granite from Yosemite, rhyolite from Yellowstone, and novaculite from Hot Springs, Arkansas. Embedded in the fireplace are Hawaiian poi pounders, dinosaur vertebrae, the Hawaiian salt stone, the huge section of a petrified wood log, stones picked up in front of George Washingtons tomb at Mount Vernon, small stones from the Dead Sea, and the Mount of Olives. Some stones, such as the round stone from the ruins of the Acropolis in Athens, and a cave formation from Carlsbad caverns.

    Seventy-five years later, Kilauea Lodge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.


    Purchased by Lorna and Albert Jeyte while on their honeymoon in 1986, The Lodge buildings were refurbished and converted into a popular country inn and restaurant to serve the community, and welcome visitors from all over the world.

    Architecturally significant for its representation of late 19th - 20th century designs in the Craftsman Style, the guest rooms reflect upcountry charm with a commitment to warmth and peacefulness.

    Offering miles of scenic overlooks and trails, stunning vistas and both hot and cold lava, make touring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park an experience to remember.

    Play golf on Peles Course, one of the worlds most unusual courses, located in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

    Situated on the rim of the Kilauea volcanic crater, Volcano Golf Course lies in the cool highlands 4,000 feet above the sea, with sweeping vistas of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea (both snowcapped in winter). The course is 18 holes, par 72, and a total of 6,547 yards of playing area.


    Surrounded by native hia and Hpuu forest (both endemic to Hawaii) and protected, rare native birds, the Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant remains a landmark in the small artist community of Volcano Village on the Big Island of Hawaii. The mountain air and fern-shaded ecosystem create a cozy serene mountain ambiance, worlds apart from the quintessential Hawaiian vacation of white sandy beaches and palm trees yet close enough for a day tour.
