What to expect

                                  Your Host

Theresa Sommer

I was born and raised along the Arizona/Nevada border between Bullhead City, Arizona and Laughlin, Nevada.  I graduated from Arizona State in 1995, and started a 20+ year career in the hospitality industry.  In April of 2002, little did I know it but my life would be forever changed.  I took my first trip to Hawaii to visit a friend who lived on Oahu. From the moment I stepped off the plane, I knew I was home!  In September of the same year I moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Honolulu, Hawaii where I planned everything from intimate weddings to city wide corporate events. Realizing I was spending more time working and less time enjoying the beautiful islands I lived on I made a life changing decision. In 2005 I worked as a licensed Realtor on Oahu and The Big Island of Hawaii while working as an innkeeper at a friend’s Bed and Breakfast right here in Volcano. After a short time, I moved back to the mainland to Las Vegas, Nevada to be closer to family where I continued my career in real estate and worked remotely coordinating reservations for several B&Bs here in Volcano.   Returning frequently to Hawaii to visit friends, hike and explore, I always felt like I was coming home.  During each visit I would fill my heart with the aloha of the islands that I love so much which would carry me along until the next time I could come. Unable to push my fate away any longer, I returned to Hawaii to be your host at Volcano Ranch Bed and Breakfast in 2015.    I am looking forward to talking story with you and helping you have a vacation to remember!

Volcano Acres Ranch Bed & Breakfast is located in the quaint village of Volcano, Hawaii. The ranch sits on 5 secluded acres in the rain forest, yet we are just a few minutes to the entrance of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and minutes from the center of town. We have a variety of animals that free range on the property and often interact with our guests.  While we encourage interactions with our animals, they are not permitted in any of the rooms as a courtesy to our guests with allergies.

Rustic Luxe meets Modern Farmhouse: 
The property combines the integrity of raw materials and natural elements with the warmth of modern accents to create a casual comfort. In a nod to Hawaiian culture local woods like curly koa in the doors, door frames, window sills and cabinets are used throughout the home. Ohia hardwood , slate and curly koa laminate cover the floors.  Lodge poles and open beam ceilings all add to the rustic elements.  Plush area rugs, quality mattresses, layers of fine linens on the beds and a range of spa like amenities help soften the look to provide a feeling of casual comfort. Choose from a private bungalow that offers the choice of one or two bedrooms or our master suite with a wealth of amenities such as a private lanai and Jacuzzi jetted tub. Our converted barn bungalow has an open sunroom attached which overlooks the pond and provides ample options for interactions with the animals.  Personalized service to help make your vacation memorable is always complimentary!

At Volcano Acres Ranch the Spirit of Aloha can be found where ever you want to find it! Relax in our rustic luxe inspired atmosphere and plan your adventure through Hawaii Volcanos National Park and the surrounding areas.  Stroll the ranch grounds, watch the koi swim in our pond, get to know our goats, spend quiet time with your partner or just be lazy. This is your vacation, enjoy it your way!  

Be sure to bring an appetite! The complimentary breakfast is a gourmet delight featuring local ingredients from farmers markets and local artisans. We provide 100% Hawaiian Coffee in each room which you can make with your breakfast.  Breakfast is delivered to your room between 8 A.M and 9A.M. unless previous arrangements have been made.
