We booked the separate cabin for our wedding night. We arrive and Mrs. Hancock came to greet us and was friendly. It immediately smelled musty. She showed us how to light the gas fireplace and said the terrible gas fumes would dissipate. They didn't and then it stopped working completely and apparently ran out of gas about the same time...

I'm not one to take time to leave reviews but this time I feel a real responsibility to potential guests, and especially the fine couple to own and operate this B&B. They are the most accommodating and gracious hosts anyone could ever wish for. My wife and I decided on a spontaneous get away to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We...

The house itself is beautiful, as was our room, the Felice Ferrell room on the second floor. It is very spacious and lovely. I loved the quilt on the bed. It is very high up, but there is a stool to use. There is a small fridge in the room. The food for breakfast was wonderful - plentiful and delicious....

This property is almost 200 years old and well loved. We stayed in the Bridal suite. The room and bathroom were large, clean and had a gas fireplace. The house is beautiful. The innkeepers are the real reason to stay here. Carl and Roberta couldn't be more welcoming. They made us feel like extended family. The breakfast was plentiful and...

Our hosts Roberta and Carl were the best. The Hancock house is an uncut jem. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was to write home about. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

Our church group of 60+ had a splendid meal. They served a 3-course meal that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, it was fascinating to hear about the history of the location and look at the beautifully done rooms. I would highly recommend it for a group of any size and for any occasion.

October 18, 2015 checked into the small cabin with another couple as we were told it was for 4. No railing at the front door stoop. No railings going upstairs, gaps in front door and windows not handicap acceptable. On October 19th I fell down stairs told Carl and Roberta had to go to urgent care were I found I...

We found this jewel of historic house 20 years ago, and return to the Hancock house again just a few days ago! Talk about southern hospitality with the Inn Keepers Roberta and Carl. Forget your diet because the spread they set in front of you is for the wealthy patrons of 100 years ago. This Old House is from the...

When we approached the home and found it on a four lane road we were disappointed and concerned. But the charm of the Hancocks, the breakfast and uniqueness won us over. The Hancocks gave us great ideas of places to eat and visit. It was relaxing and enjoyable.

Roberta and Carl were the perfect host! They made you feel like part of their family, with their friendly and loving personalities, you couldn't help loving this couple. They cooked an awesome breakfast and if you left the table hungry, it was your own fault. They cooked enough to feed an army and it was delicious!!! Would definitely visit them...
