New Hampshire Part 1 ~ The Hancock Inn

Hi Everyone,

Hubby and I were very fortunate to take a trip to New Hampshire at the
 end of September to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
I have always wanted to go to New England and I finally made it.
We decided to stay in the little town of Hancock, NH at the Hancock Inn.

As you can see it's very old . . .

. . . and so very charming.

The Inn has 13 guest rooms and each one is unique.
We stayed in the John Freeman Eaton Room.
It was on the third floor along with creaky floors and
windows that had to be propped open with a piece of wood - loved it!

Here are some more interior shots.
Every nook and cranny had something wonderful to look at.

Breakfast was included and was super yummy.
Fresh fruit and homemade granola were served every morning
and then you could select from a menu.
The French Toast was amazing.
I didn't take any pictures of the food - I guess I was too busy eating it!

They also have a wonderful dinner menu.
I tried the apple parsnip soup one evening.
  I wasn't really sure I would like it but just wanted to try something different.
Let me tell you, it was so yummy, I ate every last drop!

We loved everything about this place.
The Innkeepers as well as everyone who worked there
 were beyond friendly and accomodating.

Here's a look at the Inn from the back.

Here is a link to their website if you would like to see
 more including pictures of all of the guest rooms.

I'll be back soon with more pictures of Hancock and some of the
other towns we explored in New Hampshire.
(There might have been a bit of shopping involved too!)

~ thanks so much for visiting ~
