Through a stroke of luck and a mistake I made in a reservation nearby at another B&B, my girlfriend and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Palmer House Inn. Exquisitely decorated and white glove clean (thank Rosie and staff for that), it is an amazing place to stay. Kudos to Billy, one of the new Innkeepers, and the cook who made amazing breakfasts we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Falmouth just a short walk away is a great Cape Cod town to visit with a lot of nice shops and restaurants. Cannot say enough nice things about our visit! We will definitely be back many times!

Wonderful stay, and wonderful staff

We recently stayed one night here on our first visit to the Cape. Bill, the new owner was very friendly and hospitable. Paulina, his assistant, was very friendly and helpful. She was an excellent cook as well! Our room was very nice, and they helped us with ferry information and restaurant recommendations. We would definitely refer anyone visiting Falmouth to stay here. Thank you for a lovely experience!

Perfect place for your Cape stay!

We’ve been regular visitors to Falmouth for many years; this was our first stay at The Palmer House, and we can’t wait to return. Our stay was perfect - the room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious (good variety of fruit and entrees with yogurt and cereals available). The inn is a beautiful, historic building in excellent condition and the location couldn’t be better for getting around Falmouth and Woods Hole. I appreciated the little touches like having tea and coffee available on the main floor, bottles of water in our room, and a daily “food for thought card” with breakfast. The innkeepers provide a warm welcome and can provide you with any info you’ll need to get the most out of your visit to the Cape. We felt entirely refreshed and relaxed after our long weekend - I don’t know why it took us so long to visit The Palmer House - we’re looking forward to our next visit.

My husband and I stayed at the Palmer House Inn December 29 and 30 as a little after Christmas getaway. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of the Inn. The proximity to town and the restaurants and shops was perfect and Falmouth does such a nice job decorating for the holidays. The owners, Pat and Bill were so incredibly gracious. They made our delicious breakfast and served it with a smile each morning. Our room was cozy and comfortable and the sitting area downstairs was the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon drink and an amazing cookie! We really could not recommend the Palmer House Inn more. It is one of the nicest places that we have stayed on the Cape. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention Mary who was on duty during the afternoon. She was a friendly face greeting the guests checking in.

Tremendous time. My wife and I have been to the palmer house many times and we love it. Bill and pat always make us feel like family. The rooms are so clean and the grounds are beautiful. Falmouth is a beautiful place to be. The palmer house is one of my favorite places to stay.
