Anne M.The staff of the Palmer House doesn't miss a trick! The rooms are spotless, the grounds like a botanical garden and the staff caring and friendly! There is a 3par golf course surrounding the grounds and it is diabolical! If you don't get your ball directly on the green, it rolls right off! We've been coming to the Palmer... More

Found The Palmer House online. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Lots to keep you busy: 9-hole golf course, two tennis courts, croquet and swimming in the outdoor pool. (There is even an indoor one). Beautiful grounds with beautiful scenery. You can even walk into town. Highly recommend The Palmer House.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Palmer House. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, the front desk super polite, the location fantastic, and the resort itself filled with tons to do. This was by far the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. It was spotless. The only bummer was that the rooms are extremely outdated. My... More

This was our second year staying at the Palmer House, we come to town for the Vermont Summer Horse Show. Both times we have stayed in the suites. I would definitely recommend the suites!!! They are very spacious, clean, comfortable and decorated tastefully. They have a great deck overlooking the pond. The outdoor pool is very nice, with plenty of... More

Although we couldn't golf due to the rain, the resort has enough to keep one entertained. We used the indoor jacuzzi and pool and played the little golf course (VERY short par 3) on the grounds. The outdoor pool is normally quite refreshing, and their are tennis courts too. We love the rooms overlooking the pond and mountains. Easy walk... More

My wife and I spent this past weekend at the Palmer House to attend a wedding at Hildene, the Lincoln family estate, which is minutes from Palmer. We selected a suite which far exceeded our expectations. Each suite is like a separate little condo with a living room, bedroom and an awesome bathroom with a great stand up shower, jacuzzi... More

The grounds of this motel were nice but the room was a 1960's style motel unit with tired bath and carpeting, poor lighting, and a depressing ambience. Free coffee in the lobby and a modest continental breakfast for $2.50. There seemed to a nice pool and small golf course but as it was raining, we did not use these facilities.

I've stayed at this resort several times in the past and recently was encouraging a girlfriend to go to Manchester, Vermont for a 'girls' weekend. I immediately thought of the Palmer House.
