We stayed for two nights at the Palmer House Inn, ideally situated within easy walking distance of the Main Street in Falmouth. What a delightful building which has been decorated beautifully in a Victorian style with such an attention to detail. We stayed in the Edith Wharton room which had a four-poster bed and some lovely furnishings. The breakfast had... More

The property is story-bookish in its beauty, elegance and cleanliness. It is immaculately maintained with great attention to detail. In fact, there is a great attention to detail throughout the property and approach to hospitality; from the gourmet-meets-downhome breakfasts, to the varied motifs and color schemes with the different wallpapers in each bedroom, to the mirror-shiny wood floors! Bill and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Palmer house inn October last year and this year we returned with two friends. Obviously we like this place, it is charming, has a good location and feels very well kept. All four of us (2 couples) stayed in the Thoreau-cottage which was great because then we could hang out in the very... More

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

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

Dear Gwen H, Before becoming innkeepers, we used to travel with our dog and we know what you are talking about when you say that you were surprised at how clean and pleasant you found our dog friendly cottage. We have found that our guests with dogs are among our favorite visitors. They are considerate and respectful of our home.... 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
