The Hancock House offers 9 rooms all with private baths and queen size beds. We serve a full breakfast and also have a complimentary beverage center. Enjoy our beautiful view from two parlors and the wrap around front porch with swings and furniture. Great place for reunions and friends to gather. Restored Queen Anne and decorated with period furniture.

The staff was amazing! Simon knew everything about Dubuque and can point you to any of the best sites. The Doll House room is cozy with nothing to do but sit in your huge Jacuzzi and look out over the city.

"All the rooms look great but if you want the best view while relaxing choose the Doll room!"
"We enjoyed the library, a room on the ground floor with a queen bed and extra-large whirlpool."
"The Courtland was bluffside, but spacious, and reasonably priced."
"Be sure to confirm your arrival time so the hosts are prepared and present."
