Perfect location with a picturesque view of the most quintessential New England common! And certainly nothing in common with Victorian like bed and breakfast stays. As soon as you arrive the sense of attention to every detail, the feeling of old world charm and warmth and attentive service is second to only the beautiful décor found in every nook and... More

This was our first visit to Cape Cod and we loved our stay in this quaint, charming, beautifully decorated B& B in Falmouth, Mass! Excellent location....just blocks away from the main part of town with cute shops and restaurants as well as the free shuttle to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the Penthouse... More

I've now stayed here at least ten different times and can say without doubt this is a fantastic inn. Great care and consideration has gone into the design/decor of each room and I applaud Pat and Bill for that. It's not often you find interesting, classic and unique furnishings all in one room. We enjoyed our stay in the Penthouse... More

My reservation was on a Friday afternoon and the last room available. I arrived late and the owners gave perfect instruction on finding my room! I was astounded to see the room so beautifully appointed and amenities provided; the B&B a welcome atmosphere. The breakfast different each morning and deliciously prepared. Bill and Carol offered bicycle to ride around Woods... More

I loved the Palmer House. The house itself is stunning, a beautifully restored (Victorian?) property that was just a pleasure to experience. The common rooms in the main house are comfortable as well as attractive, there are newspapers to read, and the adjoining room has coffee and tea available at all times and cookies to enjoy. Breakfast was ample and... More

I have stayed at the Palmer House 4 times over the past 5 years and every year, it exceeds my expectations. Breakfast is served from 8 - 9:30 AM - I am not an early riser so this time accommodates me as well as the early birds. The best drink to order with breakfast is a Cape Cod Sunrise -... More

My new husband and myself arrived at The Palmer House Inn,and found that the joy and delight of our wedding day was to continue for our honeymoon. No detail was overlooked in amenity or service, and the decor was lovely, comfortable, and private.

This B&B was in a very good location, it was very clean and good breakfasts. But our room was on the 1st floor and was quite tiny with not even enough room for a bedside table each. The shower and toilet seems to have been squeezed into a small cupboard with not enough room for a sink which was placed... More

Dear Christine E, The Palmer House Inn has many large spacious rooms, however, for the economy minded like yourself, we offer the smaller rooms in the antique section of the inn. Many guests choose these rooms because they enjoy antiques. The stairs, outside of that room, are original to the house. They are hand crafted maple and have never been... More

Very comfortable and homely. Excellent breakfasts! Good for exploring Falmouth and Cape Cod area. We liked our room on the second floor. The bathroom is very spacious and we really liked the fact that the shower though over the bath had a proper glass screen. Bathroom also had a spa bath and lovely bath salts were provided.
