In 1988, friends of Tom and Brenda Carson came to visit from Alaska, so the Carsons renovated their 1925 tin-roofed cabin, under giant tree ferns in the rain forest, to accommodate them. That was the beginning of the Carson's B&B business, and today they're quite a success story. They have six units on their 1/2 acres in the rain forest: three guest rooms with private entrances and private baths, done in Oriental, 1940s, and 1950s Hawaiiana themes; and three cottages, each with its own decor (Asian, American, and a quaint Victorian English cottage), plus another three houses in the neighborhood. The property also has a hot tub tucked under the ferns for guests' use. Several of the "deluxe" cottages even have their own hot tubs and free-standing fireplaces. Tom and Brenda serve a hearty breakfast in the dining room.
