This was our second stay at the Palmer House Inn. The first was two years ago. Both visits were Victorian perfection. We stayed in the Robert Frost Room and it was so comfortable and clean, we did not want to leave. The shower and whirlpool tub was luxurious for someone who lives in a New York city apartment. The bed... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palmer House for a long weekend. Bill and Pat are very gracious hosts without being overbearing. Staff members are friendly as well. We stayed in room #1 for three days and found the B and B experience to be very pleasant. The room was well decorated and comfortable. Breakfasts are great and the... More

Bruce and I loved coming back here for our 1st anniversay. We had a great time relaxing. We love the gourmet breakfasts that Pat made for us and the other guests. They are so delicious. We had the same room as when we got married. It was a nice romantic weekend. Thank you Bill and Pat for making our anniversary... More

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon at the Palmer House. Bill and Pat have one of the most elegant bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The rooms are meticulously kept and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were original, simple, fresh, and a great way to start a day. Our stay was truly a 5 star experience. We are... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Palmer House Inn. Our room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The location was central in Falmouth near the downtown restaurants - all within walking distance. Bill gave us great advice on local attractions. Overall a great experience.

I visit the cape often, and hands down the Palmer House Inn is the best Inn on the Cape. The Inn is simply exceptional. The rooms are large, well appointed and immaculately clean. The common areas are well decorated and comfortable. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating, they go out of their way to make sure we find exactly... More

I booked 2 rooms at this hotel via hotels.com. About 5 days later, the innkeeper emailed to say: "On major holiday weekends we request a three night minimum stay. Will this work for you?" I replied saying that it would not work for me, and asked what can be done. After two weeks, he still did not reply. I called... More

The request for a reservation was received on April 19, 2014. The Inn emailed a response 2 hours later with notice of the 3 nights stay minimum requirement. The customer reply was received on April 22, 2014. Since the reservation request was declined by NyLATravels, no reservation was made. We understand the importance of travelers getting quick responses and continue... More

Beautifully maintained property with an excellent, home-made breakfast. Pat and Bill are very friendly, hands-on innkeepers. Very close to town, shops, and both Martha's Vineyard ferrries. Try the 'Cape Cod Sunrise' juice for breakfast.
