A wonderful house, lovingly cared for by two of the nicest people you could wish to meet, a great view over Dubuque, excellent breakfast - one of the best B & Bs we've ever stayed at.

Beautiful Victorian home in historic district with the most delightful hosts! Accommodations were wonderful. Breakfast was delicious. Large spacious rooms, beautifully appointed. But the best feature is the truly lovely hosts.

Fabulous B&B. Beautifully decorated. Located in quiet neighborhood amongst gorgeous Victorian homes in historic district. Breakfast was delicious. Chuck and Susan were delightful hosts. We've stayed at many B&B's and this was one of the nicest! Very nice amenities including wine, many different kinds of teas, soft drinks, home baked cookies and sherry. View from front porch is lovely.

We booked a room at the Hancock House on rather short notice and with only a limited room selection available. No worries! We had a quiet, spacious, comfortable room with a walk-in shower. The inn is high on a bluff overlooking the downtown and river valley and is nicely appointed throughout. The innkeepers, Susan and Chuck, are personable, conscientious and... More

What a pleasant environment. Chuck & Susan made us feel right at home. Breakfast was delicious! The crescent french toast with cream cheese and orange marmalade was our favorite. We had some unseasonably chilly weather and the space heater in our room had trouble keeping up. The view of Dubuque and the Mississippi River from the wrap around porch was... More
