I just spent the weekend in Easton with my wife and had the pleasure to stay at this gem. The Location is amazing, the Ambiance prime, and the owners are the nicest people ever. We stayed in the garden view room and it was just perfect. Will definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone.

Gracious and Restful

You can tell that our hosts pay attention to detail. There is warm cider and wine and munchies to greet you. The beds are cozy, the breakfast delicious and filling. The staff thinks of the "little things" like wrapping up muffins for later placing footstools below chairs, adjusting lighting. A great place!

Great Weekend

Wonderfull B&B

My wife and I have been going to B&B's for over 20 years. It is our preferred way to travel. What a joy it was for us to say at the Bishops House this past weekend. All I can say is that Diane has mastered the art and craft of running a bed and breakfast. All B&B operators are handed two things, the house and property and its location. It is what they do with it that stands out to us. At the Bishops House every little detail has been thought of. It is clean and homey and full of character. The breakfast is over the top, great tasting and more than you can eat. Diane and staff are friendly and accomodating and ever eager to make your stay wonderful. If your vacation plans inculde the eastern shore of Maryland you have to try this B&B.

Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. The innkeepers take care of every little detail. They went over and beyond anything we have experienced in the past.

An Excellent Choice

The Bishop House includes three different sitting rooms in addition to your room. The hostess was most helpful and gracious. We really enjoyed her breakfast music and special wall decorations.

We've been to many B&Bs before but this one was by far the best. Attention to every detail. Very accommodating. Great breakfasts. Free bike rentals, etc.

Charming and Gracious

I spent two nights this week at The Bishop's House, in the Sunrise Room, and loved it. Even though the room is on the 3rd floor, it was kept very cool by a window air conditioner in both the room and bathroom. The furnishings in the bedroom are Victorian but the bathroom is contemporary, with a wonderful whirlpool. In addition to the mini fridge in the bathroom, there is also a sitting room on the 3rd floor with snacks and drinks. You can't do any better than the incredible breakfast provided every morning. It's delicious, homemade, and way too much to eat. The best part is that if you can't finish it, Diane will bag it for you to eat later. While the house is beautiful and the breakfast sumptuous, I was most impressed by the proprietor Diane. She is incredibly gracious and went out of her way to ensure I was comfortable. I was in town for a funeral and stayed over during the work week. Since I was the only guest in the house, Diane invited my friend to share breakfast with me one morning so I wouldn't have to eat alone. All in all, a wonderful bed and breakfast. I highly recommend it and will be sure to visit again in the future.
