My trips to Minnesota and Iowa definitely had their highlights, but the Hancock House tops the list for sure. Whether it was sitting on the front porch enjoying the pleasant breeze, chatting around the breakfast table with other guests, checking on the progress of the baby birds that had nested in the front door wreath, sleeping soundly on the wonderful feather topped mattresses--everything was top notch, interesting, and comfortable. We stayed in two different rooms: Anna's Room (the maid) and Mr. Hancock's room. We enjoyed them both. The woodwork, pictures, and furniture in the first floor area was just beautiful. The hosts were so personable and gracious, willing to accommodate every guests' needs. Although the purpose of the visit was to attend a commencement at Wartburg Seminary, I am trying to figure a way to go back to eastern Iowa soon!
