Chuck and Susan were very gracious and welcoming. The home is just gorgeous! We stayed in the "Library Room" that had a whirlpool tub big enough for two. Breakfast was superb and you couldn't ask for more friendly or attentive innkeepers. Extraordinary value. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Dubuque during future visits. Be sure to stop in... More

What a lovely estate! And, even lovelier hosts! With a fantastic view of the city below, our room invited us to sit and just enjoy tranquility and rest, observing the gorgeous view. The rest of the home also captures you, from the fireplace room, rich in elegance, to the sitting room where there are beautiful books about Dubuque, games, and... More

Beautiful historic home with a lovely view. We enjoyed sitting on the porch swing when my husband and I first arrived and just enjoying the view. Once inside, we were welcomed by our warm hosts. They are friendly, knowledgable about the house, and just neat people to spend time with. We visited while sipping complementary wine before heading up to... More

Beautiful home and the perfect hosts! The home was immaculate and the food delicious. Had a great view of Dubuque. I would most definitely stay there again. The porch was a perfect addition with the swings. Our gracious hosts answered all of our questions about the home and things to see in Dubuque.

Chuck and Susan are just very welcoming people who make you feel like your family visiting ! I could probably write a book after our first day but I'll keep it simple . Beautiful 1890's home with a time warp feel to the past . It's huge, gorgeous and very relaxing . As we sit on the porch swing with... More

We took our mom for her 81st birthday to the Hancock House!!! What a wonderful time we had. Not only is the house beautiful, but Susan and Chuck are fabulous hosts! What a God-given talent these two have for running a bed and breakfast. You can tell they have done this for 21 years and LOVE it... We highly recommend... More

Had another wonderful stay in the Doll room, love the view! Even though there were 10 others sharing the house with us, we really didn't run into each other. We shared our time with each over a home cooked breakfast! Great walk around the neighborhood, beautiful yards to admire.

I would recommend the Hancock House to anyone for a visit to Dubuque. Very comfortable room and the hosts, Susan and Chuck were very gracious and always available. And if you missed breakfast? Too bad because it was delicious. We would not hesitate to go back when visiting Dubuque in the future.

Loved staying here...the house is wonderful...the antique furnishings are beautiful...the hospitality is warm and welcoming...the breakfasts are better than outstanding...the front porch was a terrific place to sit on a warm evening with a cool beverage and look out over the city. Susan and Chuck, you are the BEST hosts!! Would recommend a stay here to anyone!!
