I rented the "Ballroom" bedroom. The room is on the third floor and with the temperatures being in the 90s and humid, I expected the room to be very hot, but it was very comfortable. The entire house is charming and the owners obviously take pride in their establishment. The house is situated on a bluff over the historic downtown...

My wife and I stayed for two nights in mid-May. It was so relaxing and refreshing that it was difficult to leave. Chuck & Susan are delightful hosts. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the conversation around the table was rich. The room we stayed in, Mr. Hancock's Room, was clean, spacious, and offered a great view overlooking the city...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hancock House. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and open. The breakfast tasted delicious! My husband said it was the best French toast he had ever eaten! The location also featured picturesque views of the city of Dubuque and the Mississippi River.

The views of the city and riverfront, with the east bluffs beyond, are indeed spectacular from the Hancock House B&B. Hosts are very friendly and foster good conversation at the breakfast table among the guests.

This is our second trip to Hancock House, an anniversary weekend we had looked forward to for some time. Susan and Chuck never disappoint. The B&B is always immaculate, the rooms warm and inviting, the breakfasts delicious, the local dinner suggestions perfect. We're not just customers, but friends, even though we've met them only twice in twelve, or so, years....

This has immediately become our favorite B&B! The house is amazing and Susan was the perfect hostess. We stayed in the Library room which has both a fireplace and a jacuzzi. We were invited to explore all of the rooms and since it was mid-week in February, most of them were not being used. We could have enjoyed our stay...

Susan and Chuck were excellent hosts and we especially appreciated Chuck’s assistance in arranging the replacement of a tyre on our rental car.
