Full Disclosure - I am not one who seeks out B&Bs, I prefer the anonymity of a hotel. I'd heard about Bishop's Hall while on business in Oak Park throughout the year and I finally looked it up. I hesitated, I really did, and then, I just stepped out of hotel zone and booked. I do not want to leave....

Simply the best B & B experience ever. Our 3 night stay was perfect and i can not overstate this. The attention to detail is amazing, the welcome warm and lasting as said in so many ways in other reviews. Chuck and staff add to the already elegant style of the place. As in another review, being treated as "royalty"...

Bishops Hall is stunningly beautiful. We stayed in the larger suite and didn't want to leave! The seating area by the fireplace, steam shower and four poster bed were all luxurious and beautifully appointed. Charles was a lovely host and breakfast was delicious. This was one of the most beautiful and comfortable places we've ever stayed anywhere.

We simply loved our stay here in this beautiful grand home. Charles, the owner, treated us like old friends, making us feel so very warmly welcomed the moment we arrived. His exquisite decor was impeccable, elegant without fussiness. The many personal touches around the house really added to the feeling of a warm home. We agreed we'd love to be...

We have stayed on Hotels, Inns and B&Bs for 40 years all over the world and you cannot get better than Bishops Hall (well apart from a far more expensive Relais chateau in France or similar!) Charles' experience with hotels shows and this B&B is far and away the best we have ever stayed in - anywhere - so if...

This is the stuff of legends. A veritable heritage site that once served as the home of Orthodox Metropolitans. A landmark in its own right in a neighborhood made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright, not to mention Ernest Hemingway! We, my wife and I, got there for the Fourth of July experience but even the Parade faded by comparison. She...

We had a perfect five day stay at Bishops Hall B & B. It is elegance personified. The most beautiful decor and refined ambiance one could desire...lovely antique furniture, paintings and porcelains. Every room was perfect. Charles is the most gracious host and has thought of everything to make his guests comfortable...small snacks & fresh flowers in the rooms, delicious...

Since we have discovered Bishops Hall Bed & Breakfast we do not stay anywhere else when we are visiting Chicagoland. #1 Oak Park is the kind of city we like.

Probably the best b&b we have ever stayed in. Everything is absolutely perfect. A gorgeous place of beauty and luxury. The furnishings, the rooms are of the best taste. Something between a museum and a palace. Or both ? Charles, the owner, is helpful and attentive to every detail. Of course, the breakfast is somptuous. Excellent situation if you want...

We stayed twice at Bishops Hall in the last 6 months and were not disappointed on either stay. Charles is an excellent host, making us feel at home in so many ways. Each room in the mansion is curated with elegant antiques and yet very welcoming and comfortable--something we have only experienced in one other place--Inverlochy Castle in Fort William...
