what a fun warm and wonderful place to dine and stay over. having lived in Hancock village years ago we had a wonderful opportunity to dine with close friends who still live in the village. The staff could not have been more accomodating and fun...delightful dinner and wonderful breakfast. This is a wonderful old inn worth visiting.

We enjoyed a lovely winter evening meal in the Tavern last night. The new owners have done some terrific improvements to the first floor, moving the Tavern to the back of the building. Sitting by the (real) fireplace, we both chose the fish and chips. Portions are large, and the food quality is excellent. Service is friendly and professional. The is a real gem of a place. I'm glad I live in the town next door.

We went here in June of 2012 and stayed in the John Hancock Suite which I think is their best room. A beautiful antique sitting room, a large bedroom with a desk and an antique yet comfortable bed and a large hot tub. The bathroom was totally modern and well-sized.

The whole hotel is beautiful, the breakfast they serve is fresh and excellent. There's a very chill hotel dog which was a nice touch. The owners couldn't be more pleasant. They knew the area and told us where we could bike out to a totally secluded wetlands on the nearby lake, with a lovely dam and beautiful rocks for sitting. It's a great place to go to hike or mountain bike.

Room Tip: Pick the Hancock Suite if you can afford it.

This past week my husband and I returned to the Hancock Inn, a place we had visited a few years ago with friends. It was still very good, but we didn't feel it was as friendly and inviting as the first time we were there. Our room this time was very small. There was no closet and hardly room for 2 small suitcases. I believe it would have been helpful to remove the television and leave the dresser top free for extra space. In the bathroom, there was a pedestal sink but no where to put toothpaste, toothbrush, etc..
The Inn had changed ownership since last time we were there and I felt that, aside from the person at the front desk who welcomed us, the inn was not as friendly as it was previously when the prior owners were in attendance. These people, while very nice, simply didn't seem particularly involved with guests and no one seemed to be enjoying the common rooms and talking or interacting.
Food, in general was very good. Breakfasts were excellent---you won't get better corned beef hash, which I had as a side. Dinner was also very good. I had the hunter's stew and the gravy and vegetables were excellent---however, the venison was tough and not flavorful. Instead of the meat being in chunks that literally fell apart with tenderness, it was served in 3 overcooked, thin, dry slices. My husband had lamb and he enjoyed that. The sticky toffee pudding we had for dessert was wonderful.
These owners have done a lovely job returning the ground floor of the Inn to its original state and it is a beautiful property.

Room Tip: We chose a room on the second floor this time and it was very small. Last time we stayed on the third floor and it was spacious. Ask about the size of the room and whether there's an area for luggage and a place in the bathroom to put toiletries.

My husband and I enjoyed a visit to The Hancock Inn while on a trip to view fall foliage. The innkeepers, Marcia and Jarvis are welcoming and accommodating hosts. Lovely antiques add to the charming decorating style used throughout the Inn. Dinner was delicious with a good wine selection and the complimentary breakfast was outstanding offering a large selection of morning fare. The chiming of the Paul Revere bell #236 in the nearby Hancok Meeting House was an added bonus.
