True to Our Origin

The Hancock Inn remains true to its origin, offering the best in centuries-old traditions of hospitality, comfort, delicious food, and romance, but with all the modern conveniences of today. 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. A number of rooms have either gas or electric fireplaces.

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.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this historic place. It is the oldest inn located in New Hampshire. The innkeepers Marcia and Jarvis are wonderful hosts and the staff was one of the most accommodating and friendly I have encountered. My dinner there was delicious. It was perfectly prepared and presented. My morning send off was a full breakfast with in house prepared menu items. I would highly recommend the Hancock Inn."
