We loved the Bell tower room with the fireplace on a misty cold day. With so many rooms to relax in, we never left the Inn until check-out time. The beet salad was so delicious as was the scallop dish with crabmeat....never have I had such good food! Breakfast was just as exciting too! Would love to return in the...

My husband and I stayed at the Hancock Inn this past weekend. Everything was perfect at the Inn! Our room (Bell Tower Room) was fantastic- old-age charm with modern amenities. The staff at the Inn was very friendly and provided excellence service all around. The food (both dinner and breakfast) was amazing and 5-star!

My husband, myself and our son are here in the New Hampshire area looking at boarding schools. We found the Hancock Inn on Trip Advisor. From the moment we walked into the Inn we fell in love! As we walked into the Inn we were greeted by Marcia who was so welcoming. Within minutes Marcia was giving us restaurant recommendations,...

Our overnight stay this March was a picture perfect New England minivacation. We skiied two days at nearby cross country area, Windblown, and returned to the Hancock Inn for our overnight rest.

While the 16" of late winter snow was a lot to deal with as it fell, the payoff has been awesome ~ spring skiing, both downhill and cross country, under bright blue sky plus snowshoeing and the maple sap starting to run!

Someone once said about riding a horse, "There is nothing so good for the inside of a person as the outside of a horse." Maybe, but sitting on a front porch rocker would surely come close. When it includes watching time pass in a small New England village, it gets even better. Thank you for staying with us and for...

Stayed here on a Saturday night and loved it. Despite the age of the inn everything is very well kept, clean and updated. Stayed in the bell fox room which was cozy and the jetted tub was great. Complimentary breakfast was delicious and felt like a home cooked meal. The staff is extremely friendly and the dog added a wonderful...

Thank you, "cozy and friendly" is just the environment we hope you'll find here. As first time innkeepers, we only know how to make this inn the place where we'd like to stay. As a result, we're told, it feels like an extension of our home. Our guests seem to agree that it strikes the right cord for this historic...

We stayed here one night on our cross country bicycle ride. It was our "reward stay" after having ridden almost all the way across the US. What a beautiful, charming place to stay.

It was our reward to have you stop and stay with us during your amazing ride across the country. Thank you. We have to spend a lot of our time living vicariously through our guests.

Without a doubt one of the favorite hotels I would highly recommend. The room was very well maintained and clean. The restaurant practices "farm to table" concept and truly enjoyed fresh foods and excellent wine! The owner couple was so friendly and so were all staff!

Stayed here just one night with a last-minute mid-winter reservation. I was in town with a friend to see a show at the Petersborough Players Theatre Company, and although the show was lovely, I could not have predicted that the real star of the night would be the Hancock Inn. Host Jarvis was marvelous, and dinner at the bar of...

Wow, high praise indeed. We are big supporters of the Peterborough Players and glad to be their neighbor and partner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hancock Inn is a historic property in Hancock, New Hampshire. Built in 1789, it is New Hampshire's oldest continuously operating inn. The inn has 14 rooms for overnight accommodations that are exceptionally well-appointed with period antiques and inclusive of modern amenities, such as in-room chargers, waffle-weave spa robes, flat screen televisions with built-in DVD and wifi throughout the building. Many rooms have gas or electric fireplaces. There are numerous common areas around the inn for the enjoyment of our guests, upstairs and down. The two sitting rooms on the first floor, one with with a Rumford fireplace, are hallmarks of the inn's warmth and hospitality, separating it from the usual of being away, making it feel closer to home. Outside, the inn's 1.5 acres of gardens and field (which includes a professionally maintained croquet pitch in the summer) connect visitors to the Monandock region's preserved landscape and scenery. In the winter, join countless avid snowshoers and cross country skiers and, other times, experience the lakes, rivers and trails that crisscross our corner of the world. The inn's fine dining restaurant, The Fox Tavern, is open seven nights a week. The farm-to-table menu features New England favorites relying on locally raised beef, pork and poultry, plus cheese, fruits and vegetables from area growers, including vegetables from our own gardens. The Tavern's reknowned, cooked-to-order breakfast is served complimentary to house guests. Come to the Hancock Inn and learn why it has been characterized as "the near perfect expression of the New England village inn." ... more   less
