We hiked up Bald Mountain this week, which is about two miles from the Inn. Great views of the Monadnock Region from the top. The trail ends at Willard Pond, which means a swim at the end to cool off.

John D. Parker and his wife, Kim, arrived for a visit over the weekend in their 1921 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, which he purchased in 1970. It graced the front of the Inn for a day or two, turning heads and warming hearts.
Tomorrow night’s supper is Chicken Fried Steak! With mashed potatoes and gravy. Green salad to start and Trifle for dessert.

Remember Wilson Wilson Jr? Meet Bobby Fogg Jr, second generation Hancock resident, landscaper, fisherman, local raconteur, predictor of the weather. Our gardens would be jungles without Bobby. Instead, they are a delight.
Bobby’s father, Bob Fogg Sr., has been winding the church clock in town for over 40 years, by the way, which another Hancock resident, Howard Mansfield, wrote about in Yankee Magazine not too long ago.
The Hancock Inn has several new neighbors that arrived on Monday from the Finger Lakes region of New York.
These goats will play a pivotal role in the production of fresh goat cheese that is expected to begin next door to us sometime later this summer. But, already, the herd of 14-15 is delighting the neigborhood with their playful and engaging manner.
