About

"The Friends of The Bishops' House" is a non-profit organization dedicated to the historic preservation of this grand old building. This beautiful building was once home to a succession of the Episcopal Bishops of Idaho. Each of the men who served as the head of Episcopal Diocese of Idaho lived in this home with their families while serving in the capacity as the Episcopal Bishop of Idaho. The original house was built in the late 1880's and was remodeled to its current stately, towered Queen Anne style Victorian home in 1899.

    This was hands down the most gorgeous place in Boise to get married. We had complete privacy (and the house to ourselves) from noon to midnight. The house and grounds looked perfect when we arrived and the manager was extremely helpful in assisting before and after for other vendors to pick things up. If your looking for somewhere elegant and classy to be married this is definitely your place!

    The Bishop's House was an ideal venue for our summer wedding. My husband and I chose this venue because of the incredible value, the setting, and the flexibility. We love the historical buildings that are nestled in Northeast Boise, at the base of the foothills. There was plenty of room indoors and outdoors for our 100 guests, the grounds were lush and romantic, and we were welcome to use our own caterer and bartender. We several opportunities, leading up to our wedding, to visit the site with the venue manager, Elizabeth. She was full of helpful suggestions to assist our planning, and she was very flexible about the requests we had. There are a few rules that are in place to protect the building's integrity, but they are easy to adhere to. I would recommend this venue to anyone interested in an elegant wedding on a budget. You and your guests will not only feel comfortable here, you will have beautiful wedding photos afterward!
