To experience a traditional, colonial homestead, this place certainly met all our expectations. Bill and Pat welcomed us each day and couldn't have been more helpful. The staff are very professional . We stayed in the cottage. King side bed ,Jacuzzi bath air conditioning all provided. They went out of their way to make us feel special. And even our... More

Bill and Pat are wonderful innkeepers. Their staff provides excellent service and they are respectful, polite, and friendly. If you want to be nearby all of the restaurants and shops there is no better place to stay. The hearty breakfast is a perfect start to each day. The property is gorgeous and very well maintained.

The staff at Palmer House is fabulous. They do a great job executing service and hospitality in a professional manner. Mary was very friendly upon arrival, giving all the info and showing me around. All the amenities were top notch and every detail considered, down to the nightly turndown service that included chocolates on the pillow. Breakfasts were also outstanding,... More

Dear Amy_Dean2004, Thank you for your kind words about our staff and Inn. However, your account of what happened at check-out is not accurate. When you called to make your reservation you asked to take advantage of our "American Heros" special. This special is clearly described as a 10% discount for active duty military, fire fighters and police. The description... More

Our second stay at the Palmer House Inn, and this visit was as exceptional as last year. If you want an immaculate Inn, where the attention to detail and the little things are perfect, then this is the place. Walking distance to everything in Falmouth center. The breakfast is five star material. This Inn is the best, and in my... More

Every romantic detail was taken care of, and we loved being so close to all the shops and restaurants. we will most definitely be returning to the Palmer House Inn! Champagne and local chocolates, flowers, and a decadent cake were just a few of the things that helped our visit be an extra special one. The room and house was... More

Our short film "Figs For Italo" was an "Official Selection" of the 24th Woods Hole Film Festival and as we could not find a place to stay in Woods Hole but we found The Palmer House Inn in nearby Falmouth and could not have been happier with our stay. We stayed in Room #6, the Robert Frost Room, and it... More

We only stayed one night, leaving for Nantucket by Ferry the next day, but this is a place we would return to again and again. The owners have taken note over the years and every amenity has been included from bath to welcoming and turndown. Breakfast was delightful, served with charm and attentiveness. Many restaurants just down the street and... More
