Two Day Itinerary
Two Days of History, Beauty, and Food
Check-in anytime after 3:00PM. After a long drive, stretch your legs with a stroll down our Main Street where every home is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. Borrow a “Walking Tour” guide of the historic district from our front desk for information about each building. The district is considered to be a good example of a late 18th Century New England village. Then return to the Inn for a beverage in one of our front porch rockers or in the rear gardens and patio. Dine at The Hancock Inn, perhaps a night cap in one of our sitting rooms and then have a restful night’s sleep.
There is a cooked to order breakfast to start your day. Then on to the Hancock Farmer’s Market, open 9 – 12, located behind the historic Meeting House. After your time at the Farmer’s Market, meet the town clock keeper Bob Fogg Sr. at the front entrance of our meeting house for a tour of the historic building and bell tower, which contains Paul Revere’s bell #236. For a casual lunch try Fiddlehead’s Café located just across the street from the Inn. Then on to Frye’s Measure Mill, makers of Shaker & Colonial boxes since 1858. Every Saturday, June through October, Frye’s offers a 1.5 hour tour of their water powered workshop starting at 2:00PM. (Everyone loves this tour) After the tour return to the Inn for a rest, then dine with us again or we can recommend Del Rossi’s Tratoria, serving home made Italian cuisine just 10 minutes from the Inn, in Dublin NH. Return to the Inn for another relaxing, restful night.
Based on the availability of the clock keeper, space is limited on the Frye’s Measure Mill tour and we also recommend reservations for Del Rossi’s. We are happy to make a reservation for you.
Start your day with another of our innkeepers’ home cooked breakfasts. Sunday service in the meeting house begins with the Paul Revere bell ringing at 9:30 to call the village to church, with the service beginning at 9:45. All are welcome.
