“Simply Beautiful”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Bishop's Hall hosted my wedding in June of 2011 and I am still getting compliments. The owners Sam and Chuck welcomed us as if we were family and presented a 5 star, 5 diamond experience overall. Everything from the gorgeous rooms with a Four Seasons decor to service that welcomed everyone! Bishop's Hall has taken Bed and Breakfast experience to a such a higher level!!!!!

I have stayed as a guest in Sam's and Chuck's elegant home many times. The house is spectacular. Sam and Chuck spent years to creating one of the most attractive B & B's you can imagine. I've stayed in many hotels and Bed & Breakfasts because of the descriptions and photographs on websites. Rarely do the establishments meet the expectations I've developed by reviewing the website information. Bishops Hall is different. The photographs and descriptions on their website are wonderful, but what you'll find when you arrive will exceed your expectations. The house is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Oak Park and it is surrounded by large, very well-maintained homes. Sam and Chuck have other careers-the B&B is a labor of love. They also have a marvelous housekeeper who has worked for them for many years. She keeps the house spotlessly clean and Sam and Chuck keep the house in impeccable condition. A final thought--after my second stay, I realized that I had made new friends in Chicago. Sam and Chuck are bright, engaging and interesting people.

I've been lucky enough to be a frequent guest at Bishops Hall. I've also traveled extensively and I have yet to stay in a place as beautiful. The home is lovely and luxurious. Yet, somehow, it's still incredibly comfortable and relaxing. Whether it's the Tartan Room, the Yellow Room, or the really big one with a shower as big as my entire bathroom at home, the rooms are amazing. Way beyond your average B&B owners, Sam and Chuck are naturally gracious and attentive. They love having guests filling their home. The location in Oak Park is great, too; just a few blocks from a huge variety of restaurants and pubs. And the Green Line to downtown Chicago is close too.

Room Tip: The Tartan Room has a private balcony that looks out upon the gorgeous garden in back.

We, and two other friends stayed here in June when we came in for a wedding and everyone is still raving about Bishops Hall! Sam and Chuck are amazing hosts and leave out no detail. They are extremely attentive and seem to know what you need before you do! The rooms are beautifully decorated, spotless and very comfortable. The location in Oak Park is great. This place is so beautiful, it makes you want to move in!
