This is a very quaint, clean and quiet B & B tucked in an excellent location to explore Falmouth, a town filled with great restaurants, a nice little downtown shopping area and bike/running paths. Our room was well appointed and cozy. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming. They served a delicious breakfast each morning. We would definitely come back... More

Beautiful old home in an excellent location to explore Falmouth's historic district by foot. Pat and Bill were very welcoming hosts and made us feel at home. A big plus that Pat and Bill recommended is the ferry parking lot a short walk away which saved parking fees by leaving our car at the Palmer House Inn and walking to... More

Dear tigator, We agree, our location is our greatest asset. This is a beautiful old house and our greatest pleasures are caring for it and sharing it with other antique lovers. Many thanks for the excellent review. Always, Bill & Pat More

My husband and I have a dog, so it is difficult to find really nice places to stay that allows dogs. We stayed in the cottage at the back of the property, and it was immaculate considering dogs are allowed there. The staff was very pleasant and brought us our breakfast each morning since we couldn't leave our dog alone... More

This lovely lady is ideally set on a main street in the historic district. You can walk to restaurants, banks, shopping, bakeries, etc. The location is perfect! Pat was a lovely hostess and her husband was a reserved but kind host. There were no questions they couldn't answer. From ferry tickets, nail salon choices, restaurant selection, Vineyard trip planning and... More

You could set the clock back to the 1900s when you walked through the rooms, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, wish we could have stayed longer, but this was our last resting place before returning to the UK. The lovely Pat was on duty with her very calm manner, with lovely staff who cared working for her and Bill. Loved the... More

Dear MichaelAn, Thank for the very good review. Many of our European guests enjoy the last vacation stop in Falmouth before heading to Boston and home. Falmouth is a sleepy little town in comparison to the hustle and bustle of the big cities. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Bill & Pat More

We only spent one night at the Inn. We needed a place to stay after the Falmouth "Road Race." We checked in after hours so we didn't have a chance to see anything but our room. We were in the penthouse on the 3rd floor. The room was lovely and immaculate, but a long way up and down the stairs.... More

Just book it. It's fantastic in everyway you could care to measure a hotel. Service, cleanliness, features, value, etc, all absolutely brilliant. The whole place has a very personal feel and excels at making you feel welcome and at home (from home). I could write an essay covering all the virtues of this place but I'll simply cut to the...

Dear Lisank81, Thank you, thank you for the brilliant review. It is a shame that there is not a way to rate guests. Because you would be a six star guest. It was a pleasure to chat with you each morning of your stay. Have a wonderful life together. Fondly, Bill & Pat More

My wife and I recently stayed here for the Falmouth Road Race and the location couldn't have been better. It was within walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Main street. As for the race, it was only 2 tenths of a mile from the bus pickup. We would surely stay here again.

This was the fifth visit to the Palmer House Inn. Pat and Bill make it feel as if we are coming home for an annual visit each time. They are ever so friendly and accommodating. The homemade breakfasts each morning are creative and delicious. We look forward to our return next summer.
