Hale Hookipa Inn

32 Pakani Pl., Makawao, Hawaii, 96768, USA

A handsome 1924 Craftsman-style house in the heart of Makawao town is on both the Hawaii and the National Historic Registers, and provides a great base for excursions to Haleakala, Hana, or North Shore beaches. Owner Cherie Attix has furnished it with antiques and fine art, and she allows you to peruse her voluminous library of Hawaii-related books. She's also a fount of local knowledge. Three pretty guest rooms have distinctive furnishings (two have claw-foot tubs) and the two-bedroom suite sleeps four. All guests have access to the main kitchen for cooking their own meals. The lush, serene grounds have a gazebo, koi pond, and one of the biggest Norfolk pine trees in Hawaii. Discounts are offered to guests who participate in volunteer projects through Cherie's site (www.volunteer-on-vacation-hawaii.com).
