We had an amazing time at the Shipman House! Beth and Gary were so kind to us and we just loved her baked goods! I still dream of her granola she makes and wish we had it here in the mainland!
Right when you drive up to the Shipman House, it's like you're transported back in time. When you walk into the house, all of the 'normal' world fades away and you relive the family's rich history and can understand why they call it home for so many generations.
The rooms are quaint and inviting and we even got to listen to the frogs in the evenings! We got so used to the frogs lulling us to sleep we had to find a (albeit poor) replica of it to help us fall asleep when we got home.
Thanks again Beth and Gary! We miss you guys!!
