The Hancock Inn
Romance with History
Located in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire, Hancock is a small, country village in an area rich with things to experience and explore, including its namesake, Mount Monadnock, one of the most climbed mountains in the world.
Currently Rooms Remain Closed Until May 31st
We expect a statewide plan for business reopening will be announced on May 31st, however, we know that lodging is in phase 3 of the rollout, so the timeline is dependent upon the virus’ curve. Right now, travel in June is questionable. If you would like to put a placeholder on date(s)/room(s) in June, please call us. No deposit will be taken and we will contact you after the reopening information becomes available. (Most likely the first week of June)
The Fox Tavern
Currently Serving Take Out Only
The State of New Hampshire has mandated that all restaurants must discontinue on-premise food and beverage service. Outdoor dining, with strict safety protocols, has been approved to begin on May 18th. We have not yet determined if we can offer this service and maintain the comfort of evening dinner guests. Please watch for updates.
We will not be relying solely on our well established reputation maintaining a fresh and clean inn. Enhanced standards of safety established by the State of New Hampshire and the American Hotel & Lodging Association as ell as the best practices developed by the Select Registry of Distinguished Inns and New England Inns & Resorts Association will be added to our regimen.
A Historic Setting with Modern Amenities
Our lodging accommodations are decorated with period-appropriate furnishings and are appointed with all of the amenities a traveler might desire. Every room is unique. You might choose to stay in the Franklin Pierce Room, honoring our 14th U.S. President, who attended Hancock Academy. Or you might stay in the Noah Wheeler Room, named in honor of the Hancock Inn’s builder and first innkeeper.

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.

New England Seasons
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.
Food is Love
The Fox Tavern celebrates New England cuisine. You’ll find dishes that reflect our roots in Old England, that showcase the discoveries in the waters, forests, bogs, fields and among indigenous tribes of New England, and that celebrate the melting pot of cultures and cuisines that is America.
Food sheds light on who we are and what we care about. Food is love.
