Very romantic or very relaxing!! Wonderful owners lots of stories lots of laughs. Susan is an amazing artist with beatific nature scapes...

This is our second trip to Hancock House, an anniversary weekend we had looked forward to for some time. Susan and Chuck never disappoint. The B&B is always immaculate, the rooms warm and inviting, the breakfasts delicious, the local dinner suggestions perfect. We're not just customers, but friends, even though we've met them only twice in twelve, or so, years....

This has immediately become our favorite B&B! The house is amazing and Susan was the perfect hostess. We stayed in the Library room which has both a fireplace and a jacuzzi. We were invited to explore all of the rooms and since it was mid-week in February, most of them were not being used. We could have enjoyed our stay...

Susan and Chuck were excellent hosts and we especially appreciated Chuck’s assistance in arranging the replacement of a tyre on our rental car. The house and its location are amazing (though the drive up is challenging!) and our evening drinks on the porch with the wonderful views over Dubuque and the river were truly memorable. There are many little extra...

For me, it's mostly about the house. The house is a wonderful step back in time to a house I likely would not have even been allowed to visit in its heyday. But not only am I allowed to look around, I'm made to feel welcome and oh, so comfortable. Sue and Chuck seem to have thought of everything and...

Susan & Chuck are wonderful hosts! Graciously sharing their gorgeous Queen Anne home atop the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, they offer guests a serene, comfy retreat that recharged us. The maid's pantry with a variety of complimentary beverages & a delicious homemade snack took our enjoyment of the parlors, porch, and bedroom over the top. We have stayed in...

The location of this B&B sets it apart from the usual. The view of Dubuque from the hilltop is breathtaking, and behind the home is a two-story natural stone wall covered with vines - uniquely picturesque. The welcoming hosts were able to give an interesting, detailed history of the home and it's architecture. I felt as if I were staying...
