.. delightful craftsman bungalow is a relaxing homebase for your Eastern Sierra adventure!
"My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, quiet three bedroom craftsman bungalow one and a half miles from the the center of Bishop. The house is tastefully decorated with living and dining rooms that comfortably sit six including a wood-burning fireplace and flat screen TV. Our group enjoyed preparing meals together in the large well stocked kitchen which included nice sharp knives. Each of the three bedrooms has a very comfortable, firm bed. We soaked in the outdoor jacuzzi on the back deck while viewing the desert sky. There is also a nice outdoor grill and shaded eating area that we did not use because it was chilly.”
Fantastic property in a lovely setting. Owners are great too.
“Three couples had a wonderful relaxing fun stay"

"Amazing place to stay! It was hard to leave. We’ll be back for sure!"
This beautiful old farmhouse in Bishop has it all..
“…beginning with quiet, comfortable porches on three sides with great views of the Sierras, the Whites and farmland and animals grazing. The first thing we saw when we pulled in the driveway was an acre of green grass, old cottonwoods, black-eyed Susans and Queen Anne's lace everywhere. And a stream through the backyard. Even an apricot tree for snacking. The gorgeous inside equalled the outside - craftsman woodwork, hardwood floors, tasteful furnishings, comfy beds, great shower, modern and well-appointed kitchen. Karen and Steve really wanted us to enjoy ourselves!!
We were charmed by Bishop itself as well. We've been here many times but on a "pass through" basis. This time Bishop was the destination. The used bookstore in town (you are only minutes away from anything in Bishop) Range & River Books, was fantastic. Whole walls of books on the West, great fiction selection too. And the owner Diane charmed us with her kindness to customers young and old. Manor Market -- What a find!! Like Whole Foods on a smaller scale and minutes away. Burger Barn (for meat eaters) can't be beat anywhere - check out their equal opportunity "drive through" :-)) Also check out the Coons Gallery! We hope to be back again and again to this house with so much character and charm, and this great town.”

… too good to be true.
“My family and I have stayed in the farm house several times and in all seasons. The house is too good to be true really. Such country charm and very quiet location, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, just to name a few. The scenery from all sides of the house is incredible. The back yard has a jacuzzi, bbq, outdoor seating and nice deck with a view of white mountain. The town and restaurants are 10 minutes one direction with the sierras and lakes 10 minutes another direction. Karen, the owner, is very accommodating and efficient. Honestly, you will not be disappointed with any part of your stay here. "

Karen was easy to work with and our stay was great. I would highly recommend this rental.Close to town but yet felt like we were in the country. So very peaceful sitting on the deck watching morning sunrise over the mountains.We have family in town so well be back many more times way better than hotel rooms and well worth the price.This place is the best!"
We hope to stay again!!
"My family and I stayed in the Bishop Farmhouse and had a wonderful time. We found the house to be well stocked and very comfortable!”
"We really enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse. It was so clean and comfortable; it was perfect for the four us. We ate our meals outside on the beautiful patio and even used the bbq to grill up some steaks one night. Downtown and all the shops and restaurants are close enough for a 10 minute bike ride. We would definitely stay here again!"
