This trip to Cape Cod was only a day trip and a friend recommended The Palmer House for the stay. As soon as I went on the site I immediately knew this was the place to stay. It was the most delightful 'stay away from home' stay. The feel around the house is comfortable and

Stayed at Palmer House in December, at the height of the holiday season. Falmouth rolled out the red carpet to people visiting from near and far. And the Palmer House was the perfect host!! Hospitality was outstanding, food was excellent and ambience was near-perfect.

This family really understands hospitality! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and nothing is too much trouble. The room is spotlessly clean and the breakfast delightful. I wish them well with their new venture

Hi Jannine Thank you so very much for the wonderful review and the kind things you've said! We've been here since May 31, and we are starting to see some of our guests we came to know during the summer return for a visit in the fall. When that happens it's like a reunion with old friends. We hope to have you with us again as well, and look forward to greeting you again. All the best Billy, Tom and the Crew at Palmer House Inn

Dear Amashiah Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We look forward to having you back with us, and hope you will like the improvements that have been and are being made in the meantime. The air conditioning crew is getting ready to finish installation of central a/c on the third floor of the main house after which work will move to the second floor. The front porch is being rebuilt and is rapidly taking shape. The town of Falmouth has approved the placement of our new fountain in the front yard, and we'll be starting to serve mimosas and sangrias to our guests at various times! Looking forward to your next visit! Billy, Tom and the Crew at Palmer House Inn.

Loved the extra power strip making charging electronics easy!
"The guest house has 4 rooms, separate from the main house & seems it could be more private. A wonderful experience...highly recommend!"
"The Inn does not have a lift but assistance is available with baggage to and from the upper floor."
"The rooms are of varying size. We had one of the smaller rooms (No. 3) and I would want a little larger one next time."
"We stayed in the "Cottage" adjacent to the main house and it was delightful."
"If you have ever wondered what it is like to sleep in a four-poster bed which needs a stool to climb up onto, this is your opportunity !"
$173 - $330 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
