As the road ends, you’ve almost reached the destination. The location is peaceful and serene, nestled among woods and fields. You arrive at the gate of the Palmer House Bed & Breakfast, where the meandering drive winds through majestic oak trees brimming with Spanish moss. Peace and serenity abound. As you stroll the sidewalk past the fountain over to the wrap-around front porch, with just enough rocking chairs, you feel pleasantly justified in this choice for a bed and breakfast. Greeted at the front door by the gracious proprietor, there is a feeling that you belong here. We stayed in the upstairs suite in the house. The rooms are well decorated with oversized comforters, ample dressers, a few comfortable chairs, and refrigerators with water and soda. The in-room coffee makers were presented along with some tasty coffee, tea and cookies. All very nice. All things, the hosts included, there to make you feel welcome! Go outside. There’s a pool, a gazebo, meandering paths around the grounds, a hot tub, and more. Take a look at the plants they are fostering. Stand at the fence and see the animals in the pastures. At the end of your day, you’ll sleep in the quiet surroundings. As you awake, remember, this is a bed and breakfast. Mrs. Palmer prepares wonderful ‘sit-down and enjoy this’ kind of breakfasts. Think breakfast casseroles and blueberry French toast! Your hosts have worked so hard to create this wonderful experience for you. Enjoy yourself! Enjoy the peace! Enjoy the good feeling knowing you can come back here… because you should!

I recently stayed at Palmer House whilst in Florida on business. It was great. Food, hospitality, room and the overall quality of the accommodation was excellent. Bod and Gail are lovely people and I would strongly recommend Palmer House as a place to stay if you are needing friendly and comfortable accommodation in the area.

This is a quaint B&B! Gail has a warm way to make one feel "pampered" and cared for. The B&B is beautiful and the breakfasts are "to die for"...so yummy!

From the moment I made our reservation to the moment we left everything was perfect. The warm friendly welcome and personal service throughout our stay was 100 times better than anything you will get at any hotel. Our room was perfect from the heavenly bed to the coffee in the morning and very clean. The breakfast was great! Thank you Gail!

Beautiful location, quiet and serene. Bob and Gail are outstanding hosts and Gail's breakfasts are delicious. Hot tub and pool in the back and fire pit was great on a nice, cool, Florida evening under the stars. My wide and I stayed in the Suite Memories room. Nicely appointed and plenty of room, including a nice sitting area. Has direct access to the outside, where you can sit in a swing on the porch. Every morning I sat in the gazebo and listened to the sounds of nature. I highly recommend Palmer House B & B.

Our 1st visit to a B&B. This place is great. So peaceful... out in the country but still convenient to shopping and plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Or.. you can just stay on property and enjoy walks, swimming, hot tub and peaceful alone time with your spouse. The breakfast served by Gail was fantastic. The table settings and decorations were all so beautiful. We felt pampered. This place is highly recommended. We will be back for sure.

I have been at the Palmer House for women's retreats, personal retreat, and even had friends stay for their honeymoon. All of us highly recommend it. It is centralized enough, to do as much or little as you want, in the Tampa Bay, Orlando areas. Gail Palmer is a dear, and goes out of her way to make sure you have what you need when you need it. I look forward to my next retreat. Thank you again, Dr. D
