Great stop over on the way to Bar Harbor. Always looking for the charm of an old home and nice folks who run it and we did well on both accounts. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member who checked us in and showed us to our room. There was a cute welcome basket with water, Cape Cod... More

My husband and I were married at the Palmer House Inn on June 15th. It was POURING rain that day and I had a stomach bug. I had been up all night the night before the wedding day with the bug and did not feel well at all on wedding day :-( The ceremony was at 1 pm and checkout... More

We stayed at the Palmer house in while on a bike trip across Cape Cod so I cannot claim finding this charming inn. The rooms (we had two) were both perfect and the breakfasts were amazing. Wonderful staff and a wonderfull time!

Our two daughters, my husband and I stayed in the separate cottage. Wonderful to have our own private house which was so tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the sitting room's electric fireplace during the cool evenings and lounging on the porch in the sun during the day. The breakfasts in the main house were wonderful - quiche, muffins, scrambled eggs, bacon... More

We have frequented a number of outstanding Select Registry inns in the northeast United States, but for comfort, pleasing surprises and clever deployment of luxury amenities, no one is better than Pat and Bill McConnell and their extraordinary Palmer House Inn in Falmouth. The rooms – we were in Emily Dickinson – are exquisitely decorated, with the knickknacks and objects... More

During our honeymoon stay at The Palmer House Inn, Bill and Pat welcomed us like one of the family. The room accommodations were beyond excellent. Finding this place online was a true gift. The pictures don't capture the "home-like" atmosphere. The food was exquisite. Huge home made gourmet pancakes, cranberry muffins, the freshest of fruit...I could go on. My favorite... More

This was our second time staying at the Palmer House Inn with our dog. My husband and I highly recommend it. We stay in their cottage where we can bring our dog. I usually bring sanitizer wherever we stay to go over everything, but I had no need to here. It is exceptionally clean, especially for a place that allows... More

We needed a getaway from the daily business of life. We were exhausted when we arrived at the Palmer House Inn. We were impressed right away. It is quaint, comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts were gourmet. The location was perfect. We could walk to the center for dinner or get in the truck and drive where we needed. We... More

Historic & classic B&B. Charming & quaint. Innkeepers Bill & Pat are gracious hosts. The Henry James penthouse room includes a jacuzzi! We were welcomed with a surprise bottle of chilled champagne & fresh chocolates for my girlfriend's birthday! The Inn is a short walk to the village of Falmouth or to pick up the Vineyard ferry shuttle bus. On... More

We stayed in Room #8. It was a lovely room with great, old, Victorian decor. A perfect size for two of us, very clean and quiet! Breakfast was great and Pat & Bill are fantastic hosts. Highly suggested!
