As we drove up the steep and winding streets, we almost felt like we were in San Francisco. We stayed one night at the Hancock House Bed and Breakfast, and had a very pleasant room, good bed and a quiet location. We also enjoyed the public areas of the beautiful old house, as well as the fantastic view of Dubuque from high above. The breakfast table seated sixteen of us, and we had interesting visits with several other guests. Simon, our host, shared lots of great information about the house and its history, and recommended attractions in Dubuque. We would love to return and stay here again. It's a wonderful place!

Most beautiful place in Dubuque! Immaculately kept, lovingly restored historic building with perfect period pieces. All the touches were just perfect. The owner is so generous with his time and knowledge. The HUGE jacuzzi tubs were amazing. The most perfect stay!

This charming, historic B&B is a real treat from start to finish. We stayed over the entire Labor Day weekend, along with our in-laws (82+ yr old parents, and brother & sister-in-law), and enjoyed every minute. The home has been beautifully and meticulously restored, including historic photos and memorabilia, and a great breakfast 'table talk' by Simon, the owner. (Breakfast was scrumptious!) It's been updated with individual room temperature controls, sitting areas, and luxurious beds and baths. Our favorite, though, was the stunning view from the wrap-around porch (and from almost every room!). We relaxed there every evening with a bottle of wine and delightful conversations. A serene spot for morning coffee, too. We visited the Field of Dreams (only 25 minutes west), took a one day traditional riverboat cruise on the Mississippi, rode the Fenelon, visited the Nat'l Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, and had delicious food, local wines and beers. The nearby Great Mississippi River Road is a beautiful drive or ride, and Maquoketa Caves state park is a fun hiking or climbing adventure. "Oh, people (should) most definitely come!!"

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so third story rooms are a bit of a climb, but worth it.
