The Bishop's House is a landmark of Talbot County, conveniently located within 10 miles of Historic Oxford and St. Michaels. Built in 1880 as the home of former Maryland Governor Philip Frances Thomas and his wife, Clintonia Wright May Thomas, the Victorian house was sold to the Episcopal Diocese and served as the Bishop's home until 1955.  

Located in the heart of Easton, Maryland (rated the 8th Best Small Town in America), the Bishop's House is within walking distance of the historic and picturesque Town Center, art galleries, exhibits, museums, specialty and antique shops, and casual and gourmet restaurants

The Bishop's House is owner-occupied and managed. Your hosts, John Ippolito and

We offer guest services that not even the most expensive hotels can match. Because we're a small establishment, we usually don't have more than 8 guests at a time, so we have more time to attend to your individual needs. We are happy to share our local knowledge with you so you can plan day trips. We know the area well and take care to match our guests with what will be a pleasant and memorable dining experience
