History & Hospitality

The Hancock Inn is the oldest inn in New Hampshire, and one of the oldest bed and breakfasts in New England. When it began offering accommodations and meals to travelers in 1789, the Revolutionary War had been over for just six years and George Washington was in the first year of his presidency. Lodging accommodations are exquisitely decorated with period-appropriate furnishings and are appointed with all of the amenities a traveler might desire. Each room is unique. You might choose to stay in the Franklin Pierce Room, honoring the 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.
