This property is almost 200 years old and well loved. We stayed in the Bridal suite. The room and bathroom were large, clean and had a gas fireplace. The house is beautiful. The innkeepers are the real reason to stay here. Carl and Roberta couldn't be more welcoming. They made us feel like extended family. The breakfast was plentiful and... More

Our hosts Roberta and Carl were the best. The Hancock house is an uncut jem. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was to write home about. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

Our church group of 60+ had a splendid meal. They served a 3-course meal that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, it was fascinating to hear about the history of the location and look at the beautifully done rooms. I would highly recommend it for a group of any size and for any occasion.

No railings going upstairs, gaps in front door and windows not handicap acceptable. On October 19th I fell down stairs told Carl and Roberta had to go to urgent care were I found I... More

We found this jewel of historic house 20 years ago, and return to the Hancock house again just a few days ago! Talk about southern hospitality with the Inn Keepers Roberta and Carl. Forget your diet because the spread they set in front of you is for the wealthy patrons of 100 years ago. This Old House is from the... More

When we approached the home and found it on a four lane road we were disappointed and concerned. But the charm of the Hancocks, the breakfast and uniqueness won us over. The Hancocks gave us great ideas of places to eat and visit. It was relaxing and enjoyable.

Roberta and Carl were the perfect host! They made you feel like part of their family, with their friendly and loving personalities, you couldn't help loving this couple. They cooked an awesome breakfast and if you left the table hungry, it was your own fault. They cooked enough to feed an army and it was delicious!!! Would definitely visit them... More

We stayed in the Hancock House on our trip to Nashville. Roberta was a perfect hostess. She is a great and loving person that makes you feel like your a family member. The Inn was an old log house that had been modernized and has a warm comfortable feel. The breakfast was very good and there was plenty to eat.... More

We were here as part of a club meeting....we didn't spent the night or did we get to tour the house & rooms as promised. We were served a lite buffet of finger food. A bit overpriced I have to say. The real treat was to be in the house if only to see the three rooms downstairs....this house has... More

Disappointing experience. Rooms are old but reasonably acceptable considering age of building. However, the evening of the night of our stay there was a snake in our room. Unfortunately, the owner refuses to believe it was at all possible for a snake to be in this room although we took pictures. Not even an apology from the owner nor any... More
