My husband and I recently stayed at the Shipman House to celebrate his birthday. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and exceeded my expectations! The house itself is gorgeous with its authentic decor and lovely views of Hilo Bay. The rooms are absolutely massive, well maintained, and beautifully decorated. Our hosts were gracious and very helpful with providing information on the local area and possible activities for the day. Breakfast was always delicious and filling (local fruits, bread, yogurt, granola, etc), my absolute favorites were Barbara's granola and her macadamia nut coffee cake. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at this B&B and can't wait till we can come back for another stay!
