We just spent the weekend at Bishop Farm for our dear friends wedding. My wife and I have been in the service industry, so we LOVE to recognize excellent service when we see it and Bishop Farms is second to NONE. From the moment we arrived, Heather, Annie, and Maggie were there to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the scenery was beautiful, the grounds were perfectly maintained, and the whole place gave off a magical feeling. Bishop Farms is ideal for weddings and family gathering. We stayed in the Franconia Notch Cabin and loved its charm, but we particularly loved that the ENTIRE wedding party and all of the immediate families of the bride and groom stayed there and there was plenty of space. I could go on and on, but trust us. This is where you want to get married. -Trip Advisor BoD2655
Upon arriving at Bishop Farm my boyfriend and I were crawling with excitement. We were so happy to stay just outside of town but well within reach of all the local attractions of Lincoln and the surrounding region. We pulled up the drive and as soon as we got out of the car we were greeted with smiles and open arms. It was truly as if we were visiting family and I felt totally comfortable waltzing right into the big farm kitchen and meeting Heather and her mother. The keepers were very interested making friendly conversation and seemed genuinely interested in who we were. We were shown around the property and later explored on our own. All the friends of the farm were completely helpful and hospitable to us and our four legged family member.
Aside from the overall atmosphere I want to mention that I enjoy cooking meals while on vacation. I asked upon arrival if there was a full oven in the cottage we booked and Heather politely told me there was not. She did however offer to let me use the oven in the main house which I found to be beyond gracious and would have felt bad taking her up on. I told her that would be lovely and mentioned we were going to take a stroll through the wooded paths and be back to prepare dinner. 20 minutes later when we got back to our cottage to make dinner there was a toaster oven sitting on the porch waiting for me. I was thrilled and made a perfect batch of brownies and some corn bread.
I also want to point out that the beds in this B&B are some of the best I’ve slept in away from home. If you are spoiled with a good mattress at home, I’m sure you know what it’s like to be let down time an time again (no matter how much you spend) with horrible mattresses even at fine hotels. They did not overlook this crucial detail at Bishop. The beds are everything you would expect and deserve while staying away from home.
I could go on and on, but I cannot reiterate enough. The location, the rustic charm and understated elegance coalesce perfectly with warm feelings that surround and emanate from this charming farm. If you love visiting the area do not pass up this enchanting inn. I wholly recommend the Cannon Mountain cottage from which you have a lovely view of the rolling hay field across the way. -Dinkdink10 Trip Advisor
Our wedding at Bishop Farm made for the absolute best weekend of our lives. I’m not exaggerating when I say not a single thing went wrong! Heather, Annie, Maggie, Danny, and Kasey (and our furry friends, Martha and Gigi!) made us feel right at home from the start. They didn’t hesitate to get their hands dirty with DIY projects, help us plan minute details of our ceremony, or organize last minute cab pick ups for the rehearsal dinner. I was completely relaxed throughout the wedding planning process, through the day of the wedding because I knew they are on top of everything! From vendor recommendations, to providing signature drink recipes, they helped with every detail! And with a smile – they are seriously the sweetest family!
What makes Bishop Farm and the people who live/own/work there so special is all the care they put into the details. From Maggie’s fresh baked banana bread at breakfast, to the stunning gardens on the grounds, to their awesome walky talky system so the day ran totally smoothly, they put thought, effort and love into everything they do. The grounds are perfectly manicured, the rooms in the inn and cottages could not be cuter or cleaner, and the barn is absolutely stunning. None of us wanted to leave when Sunday morning came. I cannot give higher praise or a better recommendation to Bishop Farm! -Cat and Dave
