The house, room and breakfast were amazing, BUT Chuck and Susan, the owners were memorable. We stayed in the same room we had when we were they in 2002 (only because we live in California and just retired) which we always remembered the view and special hospitality. Thank you for a great stay! We will be back sooner.

This was the fifth time we had stayed with Susan and Chuck. They are gracious and very interested in you and what you plans are while staying in the Dubuque area. They even have suggestions on how to get around the town. We have stayed in The Doll room, Mrs Hancock's room, Mr. Hancock's room and the train room. Each...

We stayed 2 nights, was one of the best places we've stayed. The owners; Chuck and Susan are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was outstanding. The room was comfortable in every way, the view from the porch was amazing, overlooking the downtown area. The location was perfect for us, couple of miles from the Port of Dubuque. Would highly recommend the Hancock...

I rented the "Ballroom" bedroom. The room is on the third floor and with the temperatures being in the 90s and humid, I expected the room to be very hot, but it was very comfortable. The entire house is charming and the owners obviously take pride in their establishment. The house is situated on a bluff over the historic downtown...

My wife and I stayed for two nights in mid-May. It was so relaxing and refreshing that it was difficult to leave. Chuck & Susan are delightful hosts. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the conversation around the table was rich. The room we stayed in, Mr. Hancock's Room, was clean, spacious, and offered a great view overlooking the city...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hancock House. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and open. The breakfast tasted delicious! My husband said it was the best French toast he had ever eaten! The location also featured picturesque views of the city of Dubuque and the Mississippi River.

The views of the city and riverfront, with the east bluffs beyond, are indeed spectacular from the Hancock House B&B. Hosts are very friendly and foster good conversation at the breakfast table among the guests.

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....
