Kentucky native Michael Tuttle, a former chef and historic building renovator, came across this secluded garden estate in the early 1990s and happily made this “old Volcano home.” The main lodge has six units, but I recommend one of the four guest cottages, each with one to three bedrooms and greater privacy. The Ihilani Cottage, which dates from the 1920s, and Cottage 44, a transformed 1930s redwood water tank, have charming turret-shaped bedrooms and inviting nooks. Continental breakfast is included, except at two newer cottages off the main site.
