We stayed in the Palmer House Inn when we had business in the Falmouth area. This B&B gets high marks for location, period furnishings, luxury amenities, breakfast/afternoon tea, and accommodating innkeepers.
The Inn is located right in the downtown district of Falmouth, which makes it very walkable. There are many good restaurants, art galleries, and high-end shops nearby. At Christmas time, the town green (also within walking distance) is decorated very festively. The Inn, as well, was decorated beautifully for Christmas.
We stayed in the Penthouse room, which has a whirlpool tub under a skylit cathedral ceiling in an alcove in the bedroom, a private bathroom with thick, heated towels, a king bed with high thread-count sheets, crystal wine glasses ready to be filled, a mini-fridge, and coffee maker. Like the rest of the Inn, the room boasted a combination of fine-quality antiques and period reproduction furniture.
I chose the Penthouse after looking at all of the room possibilities online. Their web presence is very informative, providing floor plans, square footage, and multiple photos for each of the rooms.
Breakfast was delicious: fresh berries followed by a sweet bread-based casserole and turkey sausage. Yogurt, toast, cereal, juices, and other beverages made it a substantial meal. From 3 p.m. onward, the drawing room table is laden with tea makings, cider, fresh baked goods, nuts, and chocolate. One will never go hungry here.
I made several special requests, and they were accommodated graciously. Bill and Pat were wonderful hosts.
