Hancock Guest Cottages is an amazing place to stay! The house is cute, trendy, and oh so comfortable. The owner, Rachel, has thought of everything and was great at communicating with guests. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to stay in the area!

I have stayed at the Hancock Guest Cottage, the Hancock Ranch House and the Hancock Modern. All of the properties have exceeded my expectations. All were clean, well cared for and well supplied with efficient kitchens, linens, laundry facilities and decor.

Searched on line for a place other than a hotel and came across Hancock House. The reviews were excellent so I sent an email inquiry and got an instant reply from Rachel. She is very professional and accessible. The house is situated in quiet neighbour and near major road routes for easy access for our many trips to and from...

My experience was wonderful. I have stayed with this rental group several times over the years and each time has been superb. The most recent stay was in the modern facility and it was most enjoyable. I entertained several quests and they all commented on how nice the house was. I highly recommend this proprietor. Besides wonderful properties in convenient...

There were ongoing rodent droppings throughout our stay. The stove was not clean when we arrived -- it had food chunks in it and was covered in food drippings that smelled when we cooked our holiday dinner. We left a day early when we discovered water seepage - there were puddles of water forming in the laundry room and the...

We had three couples staying together for a long weekend in Austin. The house was very spacious and clean. Although it was too hot to enjoy the beautiful backyard patio, we still appreciate the view from the dining room. We had some issues with working the air conditioning unit, but the owner was quick to respond. Definitely the way to...

I stayed at the Guest nest for a month and had a wonderful experience. It is a roomy efficiency that is very comfortable. I was initially concerned about parking on the street for such a long time but there was no incident with the amount of bike, pedestrian, or vehicle traffic. The location was very convenient. It is close to...

The Hancock Modern is a dreamy house vacation that doesn't disappoint. The design makes you feel like you're in an IKEA dream home. Modern kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room and spacious too! All 8 of our family fit in this 4 bed, 2 bath house. Their kitchen, pantry and laundry are sensibly stocked with basic spices, garbage bags and other...

“The queen-sized bed is comfy but be aware-it's a low-to-the-ground platform bed.”

“We really loved our stay but I do recommend bringing your own pillows if you happen to be like me and are a little particular about the comforts of home! The guest nest is perfect and secluded with its own little patio, very private.”
