We spent a weekend just to get away and our expectations were exceeded all around. The staff was incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful. Being the oldest Inn in NH, it was in beautiful condition and maintained many of its historical features and atmosphere. It was easy to find and very quiet. They spared no detail from the bedding to oversized, plush bath towels. Then of course is the food! Just wow! It was clear the chef is passionate about every plate, the ingredients and presentation. If you stay, enjoy the included breakfast but definitely make dinner reservations!

Quality food, lodging and personal service, so home like, warm and comfortable. Quiet small town and surroundings. The staff pay attention to the small details, very clean and so much history. Overall excellent experience, we will be back.

I stay here last weekend of September and just loved this perfect New England Hotel! The management and staff were super friendly and down to earth. They showed me my room and I loved the amenities. You could have coffee in your room or they had a coffee station set up at a table upstairs to have coffee whenever you wanted! Very friendly and accommodating staff! Food was good except for one dinner I had, the pot roast. The chef must improve that as it was so tough, just slabs of tough beef in broth, unlike a normal tender pot roast with vegetables. Grounds and weather was perfect, the town has a great restaurant across the street too!

Thank you so much for the nice review! You timed your stay perfectly for the weather and foliage. Next time, though, we'll hope to do better for you with the pot roast, a traditional dish here. Very best, Jarvis & Marcia

We had the loveliest two night stay at this Inn and wished we had longer. The Inn's staff were amazing. Special thanks to Rhonda who warmly greeted us and was always willing to go the extra mile to help us out, whether it was to set up dinner for us, research local activities, and to mail us an item we left behind. The room was cozy and charming and I cant say nice enough things for the backyard and eating area. The breakfast was superb - we had the most delicious pancakes and french toast. This was one of our favorite stays in all of our travels because of its relaxing and warm nature. It felt comfortable like home. We could not have asked for more!

Thank you, Erin, for such a nice review. Interestingly enough while our outdoors gets plenty of use, COVID has resulted in our guests enjoying a bit more more of the gardens and outdoor seating than they might have otherwise. There is plenty of space with an acre and a half and, of course, the rest of our village of Hancock. Thank you. We hope you will come back! Very bets, Jarvis & Marcia

We were married here in 2017. Everything was perfect! From the garden and terrace to the dinner, desserts, drinks and family breakfast. Every guest gushed about how wonderful their room was. I could go on and on about that weekend. I left knowing that this would be our most treasured Anniversary destination. We finally made it back this year and the fabulous team at the Hancock Inn did not disappoint! We stayed in what I affectionately call “Our Wedding Suite.” (aka The Ballroom). We were greeted as if we were family. Our daughter sent gifts that Marcia & team took great pride in presenting to us on arrival and during our first dinner in the tavern. The only place you need to be sure to have dinner is right there at the Inn. The food is phenomenal and the team is friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable. Even in the midst of COVID-19, they exceeded our expectations while keeping everyone safe.

Every category of guest that visits the Inn has its special quality. There are the guests who are here for the same weekend every summer, for Fourth of July or Old Home Days. There are the guests shopping for real estate whom we will get to know quickly and see frequently, perhaps several times over the course of a single year, similar to corporate guests. There are the Europeans (except this year) who arrive for foliage. They will stay a few days, engage with us a great deal in order to navigate the region and to learn about us as we learn about them and, then, they will be gone, unlikely to return. There are parents of children in nearby schools who will become our friends over four years and then, also (sigh) they will "graduate," back out into the world from where they came. But returning wedding guests are practically eternal as we learned our first week on the job when we were still unlicensed and not even OPEN! In came a couple that had been married at the Inn 40 years before and despite being unable to serve them any food or liquor, despite plastic hanging from doorways due to construction, and drills and hammers pounding away throughout, they insisted on a night in the room they called "Their Wedding Suite." And out they went the next morning without coffee or breakfast, but grateful and happy. So...thank you. Here is to many happy, special returns. Very best, Jarvis & Marcia.
