Looking for an interesting place to stay on our last night of 2 weeks traveling, I found this gorgeous old mansion and decided it is was worth going a bit out of the way for the experience. Built into a wall of rock in the late 1800's, the Victorian mansion has been a B and B since 1987. With 9... More

Just returned to Minnesota from a wonderful four-night stay at the Hancock house. Our group of ten couldn't have found a more ideal place for a family gathering. All of the rooms were beautiful, the breakfasts were outstanding (especially the cream cheese and marmalade stuffed croissant French toast), the hosts Chuck and Susan delightful and the porch, where we gathered...

We stopped overnight in Dubuque and stayed at this lovely quiet B&B, an oasis high on the hill overlooking downtown. The owners could not have been more friendly and welcoming, and served up a delicious breakfast. We had the Library room, which was perfect. Highly recommend this beautiful B&B if you are visiting Dubuque.

I had never thought about staying in Dubuque, but it happened to be on our way to Door County, Wisconsin, so we stayed here--and WOW!! Just beautiful, clean, tidy, a glorious Victorian home with a view over the city to the Mississippi...and a DINING Room to die for! Our hosts, Susan and Chuck, made our stay so welcoming...Susan found out... More

The Hancock House is a beautiful and well preserved home with all the modern luxuries that we thoroughly enjoyed! Chuck and Susan are warm, wonderful people, and made us feel at home from the second we arrived. Our room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The house is on a hill overlooking the city, and has a beautiful... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hancock House for our anniversary. Everything about the weekend was perfect. Chuck and Susan are wonderful hosts, the breakfasts were delicious and the house is absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be back!

I fell in love with Dubuque and it all started at this B&B. My view from Mr. Hancock's Room over downtown was great. Chuck and Susan are gracious hosts who make you feel at right at home. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My husband and I stay at this B and B every time we return to Dubuque to visit family and friends. Not only is the house beautiful, but Chuck and Susan are the best hosts ever! Breakfast is always a delight and Susan even shares recipes. Chuck is very knowledgeable and has wonderful stories to share. Sitting on the porch... More

Based on a conversation my wife and I had with a couple we met on one of our trips we decided that when we visited Iowa (my 49th state) we would stay in Dubuque. I did extensive research for lodging and finally decided on The Hancock House. When making our reservation I spoke with Sue ( she and her husband... More
