A lot of extras to make your stay more comfortable; iron, hair dryer, beach towels,weather report delivered to your room in the evening, on site parking and a delicious breakfast. The location is within walking distance to a range of restaurants. Also, within walking distance is the shuttle... More

My new wife and I chose the Palmer House Inn for our 4-night honeymoon stay, booking the Emily Dickinson room. I have to say Bill, Pat, and their staff did a wonderful job in making our trip thoroughly enjoyable. To start, we needed a late check-in, and Bill gave us clear instructions on what to do in that case. We... More

Bill and Pat (the innkeepers) provide the total package for visitors to Falmouth. Our room in one of the guest houses was well appointed and spacious (although window a/c unit was a little noisy and likely a candidate to be replaced).. breakfast creations were unique and different every day.. location is ideal just a few blocks from downtown and short...

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely Inn several months ago. Being in the hospitality business myself, I really appreciated all of the effort that Bill and Pat, and their staff, put into their lovely property. The rooms are large, very comfortable, and very nicely furnished. The grounds are beautiful and the location was ideal for an easy... More

We spent two wonderful nights at the Palmer House Inn. Our room, the Samuel Clemens, in the other house across the parking lot, was spacious and quiet, with every amenity necessary. Breakfast was served in an inviting, charming room, and it was delicious. We were told what was being served, and asked if we had any other preferences. The Inn... More

The staff at Palmer House is fabulous. They do a great job executing service and hospitality in a professional manner. Mary was very friendly upon arrival, giving all the info and showing me around.

Dear Amy_Dean2004, Thank you for your kind words about our staff and Inn. However, your account of what happened at check-out is not accurate. When you called to make your reservation you asked to take advantage of our "American Heros" special. This special is clearly described as a 10% discount for active duty military, fire fighters and police. The description... More
