My trip to Falmouth to give a talk at Museums on the Green was transformed into a delightful vacation, thanks to my stay at the nearby Palmer House Inn. Bill and Pat were fine hosts, breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious, and my room was luxurious in every way. I have stayed at many inns in the United States and... More

We stay in the Thoreau Cottage at the back of the Inn a couple of times a year for a few days, and it is great to be able to bring our dog along where the accommodations are spotless. Bill and Pat are gracious hosts, and go above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable. The Palmer House Inn is... More

After years of reading about and eye-balling the Inn off the Falmouth green, we stayed at the Inn's Thoreau Cottage. We required a pet-friendly environment and were delighted with the accommodations. Our dog picked a spot to lie down in the spacious cottage and found ample "new sights and smells" on the Inn's impeccably manicured property. I'm an early-riser and... More

Dear Pamela V, Many thanks for the fantastic review. In years past we used to enjoy traveling with our dog, however, we found that the dog friendly rooms in most accommodations were sub- standard. We are happy that we have the "Dog Friendly" cottage at the Palmer House Inn. We did not scrimp when designing it. It is our most... More

My husband and I drove from Manhattan to Cape Cod for one a night's stay before we took the auto ferry to Martha's Vineyard and booked our stay at The Palmer House Inn. We were greeted with cookies and apple cider and a smile and were shown around the impeccable inn and then brought to our guest cottage. We'd organized... More

This was a cute place, even in the frozen winter. Very friendly staff and breakfast was really tasty. We stayed in a room in the second house next to the main house - our room was great, with a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. Enjoyed sitting in the parlor relaxing and playing games, enjoying the fire as well. We would... More

We came here once and stayed in the Henry James suite as a young married couple and never forgot the comfort, peace and beauty of the place. 10 years and 2 kids later, our first romantic getaway sans kiddos was spent right here, in the same room. With a warm welcome from the owners and lovely Mary, we went back... More

Terrific B&B located in Falmouth, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our stay was off-season, to visit a sick relative. My mother and I found serenity at the lovely Palmer House Inn during what was a fairly stressful trip.
