This was our first trip to a bed and breakfast and I am happy to say it a delightful time. Going in the off-season allowed us to explore Falmouth with out the big crowds. We lucked out on the weather, mild for early January. Which allowed us to walk around the town. This place is ideal for walking to and... More

As much as I enjoy visiting Cape Cod in all seasons, our stay at the Palmer House Inn made this visit better than usual. Wonderful room, good food and helpful, personable hosts helped with the reservation, our late evening arrival and even helped us when we experienced car trouble. This was our first time at the Palmer House and it... More

We decided at the last moment to vacate the hotel we were staying in near Yarmouth and move to Falmouth for our last night on Cape Cod. I researched Trip Advisor for B&B's in Falmouth and the Palmer House Inn was an immediate attractive option. I called, they had room, and they were kind enough to prepare our room for... More

I had another great stay at the Palmer House Inn this October. Pat and Bill really went out of their way to make me feel right at home. They are very familiar with the area and always suggest great places to explore, things to do and where to eat. The location is ideal, in the center of everything but off... More

The Palmer House Inn was a great place to spend a couple nights! Of all the B&B's on Cape Cod, the Palmer House Inn was the only one recommended by friends familiar with the area and we were not disappointed!

I grew up in Falmouth so going back for the fall is always my favorite time given the lack of crowds. The Palmer House is a short walk to many of the better restaurants on main street and the owner and his wife do an excellent job with the room, food and overall experience.

Dear Scott, It was a pleasure to host you at the Palmer House Inn. We always enjoy having people stay with us who grew up in Falmouth. Because we are relatively new to the area, it is fun to hear stories about how the town has evolved over the years. We hope that you will return. Sincerely, Bill & Pat More

Our first trip to the area. Bill and Pat (the innkeepers) are unobtrusive but fantastic hostswho have a wealth of knowledge of the area. It is easy to see why so many people return to The Palmer Inn. The home-made breakfasts are incredible.

My new wife and I chose the Palmer House Inn for our 4-night honeymoon stay, booking the Emily Dickinson room. I have to say Bill, Pat, and their staff did a wonderful job in making our trip thoroughly enjoyable. To start, we needed a late check-in, and Bill gave us clear instructions on what to do in that case. We... More
