Historic Bed and Breakfast in Hancock, New Hampshire
The Hancock Inn is the oldest inn in New Hampshire, and one of the oldest bed and breakfasts in New England. When it began offering accommodations and meals to travelers in 1789, the Revolutionary War had been over for just six years and George Washington was in the first year of his presidency.
The Hancock Inn remains true to its origin, offering the best in centuries-old traditions of hospitality, comfort, delicious food, and romance, but with all the modern conveniences of today. The Inn has high-speed internet connectivity and central air conditioning. Each room has a private bathroom, some with whirlpool tubs and one with a two-person Jacuzzi. A number of rooms have either gas or electric fireplaces.
In the winter, you will find guests relaxing in the Tavern and Dining Room, heated by gas fireplaces or wood stove, or in our sitting rooms in front of the wood burning fireplace.
In the summer, it's outside on the front porch in one of the rocking chairs observing the small town bustle, or out back in our gardens enjoying the flowers and admiring the fresh vegetables and greenery, and gazing into the koi pond.
Current owners, Marcia and Jarvis Coffin, with their well-known golden retriever, Potter, and an experienced house staff led by General Manager, Duncan Peltason and his wife, Sue, are committed to making you feel welcome and at home during your stay at The Hancock Inn.
