Bishops House wrap-around porch

The Bishop's House Bed and Breakfast offers an atmosphere of warmth, tranquility, and elegance. Located in Easton, Maryland, (on Maryland's Eastern Shore), the house is situated on a large landscaped, shaded lot on a tree lined street among other stately homes in Easton's Historic District. Large common rooms and guest room accommodations were lovingly restored with period details such as plaster moldings, ceiling medallions, and faux finished fireplaces. Antique furnishings are complemented with modern conveniences while maintaining the 1880 historic fabric typical of Victorian homes of the period. The Bishop's House offers the personal attention to detail and amenities found only in the very finest accommodations.

The Bishop's House will be closed from December 12, 2018 through March 31, 2019, so that we may complete another phase of our restoration plan. During our closure period we will continue to accept reservations for future stays in 2019.

The porch swing and rockers on the wraparound porch and the Garden Courtyard with Fish Pond and Fountain offer perfect outdoor locations for afternoon or evening rest and relaxation on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Our guests may also elect to relax in our comfortably furnished first floor drawing rooms, both of which contain gas log fireplaces and an eclectic selection of books, games, and Victorian era amusements.
