We recently stayed at the Hancock Inn during a fall foliage weekend. It was welcoming on a misty fall afternoon. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, although the bathrooms are on the small side (based on the 2 rooms I had access to). Each room has unique furnishings and decoration, although I think some updating is needed on curtains, lamp shades, etc, that look a bit worn. There are beautiful original wooden floors thoughout the inn. Everything was very clean.
In additional to serving breakfast (included), this inn has a restaurant for dinner and we had a fabulous meal there. We had the specialty cranberry pot roast which is not to be missed. All 3 of us in my traveling group had it and we all agreed.
Marsha and Jarvis were great hosts. They are there in the morning serving you breakfast and are also there at night seating you at dinner. I think Jarvis is also in the kitchen! They told us that they want to make sure they know every aspect of running the inn so they are busy, busy! But they were still always available and helpful.
- 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
