Built in 1886, the Bishop's Cottage was the summer home of Espiscopal Reverend Gershom Mott Williams. Restoration of the house has taken place utilizing the original wood floors and walls. The interior has been decorated with a comfortable cottage atmosphere giving a cozy feeling. The 800 square foot parlor is paneled in chestnut and has a warm fireplace. Cottage grounds feature a beautiful garden to provide a peaceful enclave for relaxation. The entire cottage and grounds are available for executive retreats, family gatherings, and special occasions such as bridal showers, dinner parties, or small weddings.

While in Grosse Ile this past weekend (6/8/2013) to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of my aunt and uncle, my sister and I stayed at Bishop's Cottage upstairs in the Bishop Room. From the moment we walked onto the property we were warmly welcomed by the owner Kathy. She made a point of walking us around to familiarize us with all of the amenities, then quietly "disappeared". Our room had a shared bath, but no one else was upstairs while we were there so we had it all to ourselves. The room was large, warm, and inviting with turn of the century style furnishings, and there was also a private sink in our room. We also had a small private balcony with a bistro table and chairs just outside our room overlooking the cafe' courtyard below. Although we didn't partake in the continental breakfast that was provided, everything looked fresh and inviting. There is also free coffee, cappaccino, iced tea and juice available 24 hours a day, and she does serve a light lunch (not part of your room rate) with inside and outside courtyard seating. We loved this place, highly recommend it, and we will be back!

My mother and I were fortunate to spend the Christmas holiday at Bishop's Cottage. My father recently died and we thought this Christmas would be a sad one. Our stay at the B&B worked its magic and served to make our Christmas surprisingly wonderful. The B&B is cozy, quiet, comfortable and oh so charming - a great place to "nestle in". Kathy is an amazing hostess who bends over backwards to meet your every need and make your stay perfect in every way. We did not want to leave and are planning to return to the B&B next month. No more boring hotels for us when we stay in the Grosse Ile area!

Our family gathered here in August. We found Bishop's Cottage to be very charming. The gardens are lovely, the rooms cozy, the continental breakfast fresh and delicious. Kathy moved about quietly and allowed us to feel as if we were at home. The bedding very nice and LOVE all the quilts!!! The music venue on Thursday was fun and festive. Most of us had not been on the island in over 40 years. What a treasure to return and to receive such hospitality. Thank you so much. I hope to be able to return again much sooner.

I could wait to give my comment about this place. We stayed for one night and it felt like a minute because we wanted to stay longer. It is one of the most wonderful places I have ever been and Kathy just adds up to everything. Just one time in this place is not enough, One's got to come back..!
