My wife and I had a very nice weekend in Falmouth. We spent two night at Palmer's house. The place is really very nice,the room was clean and the service impeccable. We were informed that because there were several runners for the marathon, breakfast was going to be as buffet rather than served,and that would be fine,but not all the... More

The Palmer House Inn is a lovely 1901 Queen Anne style Victorian inn with period decor and gracious service. Owners Pat and Bill are delightful and we looked forward to Pat's visits to our breakfast table each morning. The two-course gourmet breakfasts were elegant, delicious, and different every day. The staff was wonderful - friendly, professional and extremely well trained.... More

What a wonderful experience we had staying at the Palmer House Inn in Falmouth, MA for almost a week! The Frost room was lovely and accommodations were appropriately period, but updated with all conveniences. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and beautifully served. We found we did not need lunch after partaking these incredible morning repasts!! We would highly recommend this... More

In Falmouth for a wedding, didn't want to stay at one of the larger hotels, like bed and breakfasts much more , so pleased that we found The Palmer Inn. Great location, very comfortable, very, very clean, wonderful breakfast, extremely friendly staff. So nice that we stayed an extra night. Highly recommend. Would definitely go back to The Palmer Inn.

This is a lovely inn with two separate houses. All of the rooms that we viewed were very nicely appointed and spacious. The breakfast, which is made fresh for you when you arrive at the dining room, is delicious and made with great care and finesse.

We have been vacationing in Falmouth for 30 plus years, specifically around the time of the Falmouth Road Race (this was my 34th FRR). We have stayed in Motels, Motor Lodges, Cottage Rentals, etc...but never a Bed and Breakfast. We loved it. Felt like we were in Europe...beautiful accomodations and atmosphere. It was also so nice to be in walking... More

We had a lot of difficulty finding 2 consecutive nights on Cape Cod as it was Labor Day weekend. We could not have found a better place. Attention to detail for everything. Nothing too much trouble. Our room was probably the best hotel room we have ever stayed in. Breakfasts were amazing.

This is a beautiful old house that has been well maintained and has kept its historic charm. Upon arriving we were not greeted by the owners but by a staff member who could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Our room had a comfortable queen bed, a ceiling fan and a window a/c unit. The bathroom was very small,... More

My husband and I recently stayed a few nights in room 2, the Edith Wharton room. First off, I will say that correspondence with the inn was excellent, and check-in was a breeze.
