If you like cold weather, why not try Alaska?

the coldest is mauna kea, the hale pohaku is at 9,300 ft and it gets cold for anywhere up there. the coldest i have personally expirienced is around 0, but it gets much colder. then again, i'm still chilled on some nights in kona and sleep with blankets. on saddle road around 6,000 ft. i've had to scrape ice off of my windshield, and i know there are some houses out there (mostly ranch/farm houses) but i'm not sure what the actual tempurature would. not that i know for sure, but i think the coldest would be waimea and volcano on the big island.

Kula is cool, and the elevation is high, but very lush and wet as well. You may enjoy Kamuela or also called Waimea on the Big Island, also fireplaces in those homes. It is drier than Kula on Maui. If I had money I would also build a house in either of those places, they are my favorite parts of both of those islands. Either way its win win
