Susan and Chuck were excellent hosts and we especially appreciated Chuck’s assistance in arranging the replacement of a tyre on our rental car. The house and its location are amazing (though the drive up is challenging!) and our evening drinks on the porch with the wonderful views over Dubuque and the river were truly memorable. There are many little extra... More

For me, it's mostly about the house. The house is a wonderful step back in time to a house I likely would not have even been allowed to visit in its heyday. But not only am I allowed to look around, I'm made to feel welcome and oh, so comfortable. Sue and Chuck seem to have thought of everything and... More

Susan & Chuck are wonderful hosts! Graciously sharing their gorgeous Queen Anne home atop the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, they offer guests a serene, comfy retreat that recharged us. The maid's pantry with a variety of complimentary beverages & a delicious homemade snack took our enjoyment of the parlors, porch, and bedroom over the top. We have stayed in... More

This is the second time I'm stayed at this B&B. It is truly charming. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are comfortable with nice cotton sheets.The inn keepers are very welcoming and love to share their knowledge of the home and the area. This home has beautiful views!

The location of this B&B sets it apart from the usual. The view of Dubuque from the hilltop is breathtaking, and behind the home is a two-story natural stone wall covered with vines - uniquely picturesque. The welcoming hosts were able to give an interesting, detailed history of the home and it's architecture. I felt as if I were staying... More

My husband surprised me with an anniversary trip to Dubuque, IA. This was our first experience staying at a B&B. This home is beautifully situated high above the river. At 1st I was worried because of the 80's wallpaper & a few places where they were fixing the ceiling. But before I knew it I was enjoying myself & didn't... More

I have stayed at The Hancock House so many times. I didn't write last May and decided it was time to do so. The weather was so nice and it was amazing sitting on the wrap around porch looking at downtown Dubuque and across the river to Illinois and Wisconsin. The food was so delicious, the owners delightful and the... More

A great B&B with friendly hosts, a great view of the city and a fantastic place to get away from it all. The hosts were extremely amicable and helpful. They even allowed us to change our reservation without any problems. The location, just a few blocks off the downtown area, was great, and allowed my wife and I to park... More

Had an amazing stay at this B&B, very impressed with knowledge of owners in the history and architecture(inside/outside). Enjoyed the company of others staying, friendliness of Chuck & Susan and delicious breakfast! There are so many things to see, do and eat in Dubuque and surrounding area.
