Great location, food, accomodation and hosts. Hopefully we will get to return. The local produce is very welcome at breakfast and dinner. Good location for exploring New Hampshire and the hosts very helpful in suggesting where to explore.

Thank you for the nice review! Yes, hopefully you get to return! There is more to explore, including some of the farms and places where we get all that produce. They love visitors. Thank you, Leigh. Jarvis.

The Hancock Inn is an absolute gem. Beautiful furnishings throughout that aren't gaudy, as some B&Bs can be. I stayed in the Stahl room and it may seem small compared to most people, but living in NYC, it was huge! The bed is fantastic - i like a firmer mattress, and the mattress was firm but not stiff like a...

Thank you for such a nice review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay, breakfast and all, and found your way next door to Main Street Cheese - the makers of the BEST goat cheese ever - really. We hope yo'll think about coming back soon. Jarvis.

My friend and I had the nicest evening at the Hancock Inn. Marcia and Jarvis are most welcoming. They are gracious and display the grace of an older time. We had a wonderful meal and the turnip (maybe they called it a rutabaga) side dish was out of this world. I can't wait to visit for their Sunday supper! Thank...

Thank you, Rebecca!!! Yes, come back for Sunday supper sometime. For those that don't know, on Sunday's we serve a prix fixe, three course menu that changes every week. No decisions about what to order because there is only the one, three course affair. $17.89 per person, excluding beverage, tax and alcohol. Because supplies are limited, reservations are highly recommended....

Hancock is a delightful very small and historic town where the Hancock Inn is a very prominent feature. The Monadnock region is picturesque and charming to visit, either to drive around or by trekking. It contains several historic covered bridges nearby which we enjoyed looking for. Our welcome was very warm at the Inn and Mark was very helpful. Downstairs...

Thank you very much for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed the inn and the surrounding countryside. It is, indeed, picturesque and charming. It is also uncrowded, which, this time of year, is one of the pleasures of a Monadnock Region visit, we believe. The region lacks the "vacation sprawl," as people around here describe the experience of...

Thank you for the nice review. We appreciate it!! As it happens, Comcast was here yesterday to replace the router because, yes indeed, we thought the WiFi service seemed to be crashing, even at the Front Desk where the signal had no excuse to be weak. It seems better now. (We have to add that after years of pursuing Comcast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hancock Inn is a historic property in Hancock, New Hampshire. Built in 1789, it is New Hampshire's oldest continuously operating inn. The inn has 14 rooms for overnight accommodations that are exceptionally well-appointed with period antiques and inclusive of modern amenities, such as in-room chargers, waffle-weave spa robes, flat screen televisions with built-in DVD and wifi throughout the building. Many rooms have gas or electric fireplaces. There are numerous common areas around the inn for the enjoyment of our guests, upstairs and down. The two sitting rooms on the first floor, one with with a Rumford fireplace, are hallmarks of the inn's warmth and hospitality, separating it from the usual of being away, making it feel closer to home. Outside, the inn's 1.5 acres of gardens and field (which includes a professionally maintained croquet pitch in the summer) connect visitors to the Monandock region's preserved landscape and scenery. In the winter, join countless avid snowshoers and cross country skiers and, other times, experience the lakes, rivers and trails that crisscross our corner of the world. The inn's fine dining restaurant, The Fox Tavern, is open seven nights a week. The farm-to-table menu features New England favorites relying on locally raised beef, pork and poultry, plus cheese, fruits and vegetables from area growers, including vegetables from our own gardens. The Tavern's reknowned, cooked-to-order breakfast is served complimentary to house guests. Come to the Hancock Inn and learn why it has been characterized as "the near perfect expression of the New England village inn." ... more   less
