The Bishop's House, a circa 1880 Victorian, was built by Captain Edward Roberts for Philip Frances Thomas and Clintonia Wright Thomas. The Honorable Philip Frances Thomas was governor of the State of Maryland from 1848 to 1851. Upon Philip's death in 1892, the house and property was sold to the Episcopal Church for use as the residence for the Bishop of the Diocese of Easton. Since then, the house has been known as the Bishop's House, a designation that was used in identifying the house at the formation of the Easton Historic District.

The town of Easton is centrally located in Talbot County within 10 miles of historic Oxford and St. Michael's and approximately 15 miles from the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge.

The Bishop's House is in good standing with the Professional Association of Innkeepers International and is a Chartered Member of Maryland Bed and Breakfast Association. Additionally, it has been recommended by Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and Country Roads of Maryland and Delaware.
