For our last minute room request, this turned out to be a delightful surprise. The house is beautiful, well-maintained and has a terrific view of the city and riverfront. Our room, The Library, was spacious and comfortable. Chuck and Susan were engaging hosts and gave us very helpful suggestions on things to do and places to see.

We stayed at the Hancock House based on recommendations from Trip Advisor. We were NOT disappointed. The beautiful mansion high on the hill was not only a historic treasure, but a perfect place for a quick weekend get-away from the reality of everyday life. The bedrooms are beautifully victorian. We stayed in the ballroom, but "snooped" in every room, since... More

I was absolutely thrilled to be able to stay at The Hancock House. A lovely Victorian home tastefully decorated in keeping with the period of the home. The front porch allows a view overlooking the city of Dubuque and the Mississippi. The rooms are spacious and each one has it's own private bath. We stayed in a room with a... More

This will spoil you for all others. Perched high on the bluffs overlooking three states and the city of Dubuque, the Hancock House has been superbly maintained and offers visitors one of the finest bed and breakfasts anywhere. Try to line up the Blue Room upstairs. The windows give you an amazing view. Run your hands over the top of... More

Stayed here for a night with some friends. Wonderful! A beautiful building. Comfortable rooms and living areas open to guests. And welcoming and friendly hosts. Oh and amazing breakfast. It doesn't get better than this.

Run by gracious hosts, 5+ different decor in charming rooms in unique getaway space on bluff. A bit light on electrical plugs and places to put luggage. We had wonderful whirlpool Library Room. Lots to see in Dubuque. Hosts wil be retiring soon so get there quick!

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
