That only thing that was bad about our stay was that we only spent one night here. Susan gave us a warm welcome as we arrived, Chuck filled us in on the amenities as he helped us to our room. We were passing through on a bit of a nostalgia tour for me. I grew up in Iowa but moved... More

We have been staying at The Hancock House every year for the last 15 years for our anniversary. We absolutely love it and would never consider staying any where else. Chuck and Susan are so welcoming and gracious and the house itself charming and majestic. It's a must see if your ever in Dubuque.

Hancock House resides on the hillside overlooking town and the Mississippi River. It is filled with antiques and is decorated in a style consistent with the time. The common areas are beautiful, the rooms large and comfortable and the breakfast is delish.

Probably the nicest B&B we've ever stayed at, and very reasonably priced. It's a large Victorian mansion that has been beautifully restored. Owners Susan and Chuck have been there several years so they know a lot of local history, as well as current goings-on. They were friendly and seemed to be attentive to all of the guests. Our breakfast experience... More

What a great place! Chuck and Susan are such warm, welcoming people. You feel like you've known them all your life. Each room has it's own charm and feeling. So many extra touches made our stay delightful and comfortable - such as homemade chocolate chip cookies, fresh coffee for early risers, a shop to purchase beautiful, handmade items. Plus, recommendations... More

Wonderful room. Wonderful breakfast and wonderful conversation all around. Just what a B and B should be. And to top it all off, an awesome front porch! Lots of things to do in Dubuque and the surrounding area We are looking forward to coming again

Tremendous accommodation! Chuck and Susan were helpful and informative when we reserved a room online, upon our arrival, and during our stay, but were never obtrusive. Hancock House is in a lovely neighborhood high on a bluff with plenty of on street parking. And, the view - wow! All of downtown and the Mighty Mississippi unfold in front of you... More

This bed and breakfast is one of the best. The owners are great - have so much interaction with their guest! The food is wonderful and the room at the very top with the jacuzzi in the bay window is very romantic!! We loved sitting in the wrap around porch where we could enjoy the view of the entire city.

Our road trip up and down the Upper Mississippi for our 45th anniversary began in Dubuque and we got off to a great start at the Hancock House. Root beer on tap, sherry in the parlor, and cookies on the counter were welcome treats after we spent the day enjoying the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium. Chuck and Susan... More

This house with its wraparound porch is a perfect place to stay. We stayed in the Mrs. Hancock room and loved its size. Beautiful Victorian antiques that were great to look at but not so hot to sit on. We enjoyed meeting the owners who were very friendly and helpful. I recommend staying here anytime.
