Palmer House Inn was a wonderful find for our short stay in Falmouth. Perfectly situated on a quiet stretch of Rt 28 making it easy to find, and ideally located for a short walk to town or to a bus stop for the Ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The room we stayed in was small but nicely appointed and the owners had thought of so many little details. There was a cork screw and wine glasses and plenty of towels and 2 robes. There was even a black towel for makeup removal. The only complaint I can come up with was the size of the television. It may have fit the size of our particular room but it was very small. There is plenty of on site parking and the grounds of the Inn are wonderfully kept with gardens and flowers and places to sit and relax, both inside and outside, including a great front porch. The breakfasts we had were outstanding. Both mornings they were served by very friendly and attentive staff as well as with the assistance of the owners. The food was made with great care and seemed to be the perfect blend of traditional options, with a little unique twist. The french toast on our second morning was simply delicious. The website is very clear in explaining the rooms available so the size and location of each within the house or guest house was easy to understand. Once checked in everyone was helpful in assisting with directions, ideas for dinner, etc. We could not have asked for more.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stat at the Palmer House Inn. The room was beautiful, bedding and towels perfect and delicious chocolates at turn down. The breakfasts were top notch each morning and varied as well. Pat was a dream and made sure everything was perfect for our special anniversary/baby moon weekend. We will most definitely be returning for years to come!
This was a wonderful two night stay at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. Everything was perfect from check-in to checkout. The grounds, breakfast and the rooms were all stunning. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast location to anyone who is looking for a pampered getaway.
Would highly recommend this B&B to everyone. Very clean and knowledgeable about the area. They also remembered our anniversary and had a bottle of complementary champagne & chocolates waiting in the room.
We've stayed at the Palmer House Inn before and always look forward to coming back. The place is immaculate and the service and hospitality is first class. Bill and Pat are so welcoming and they always surprise us with the delicious breakfasts they serve up. Very relaxing atmosphere. Close to the stores and restaurants on Main Street too.
My husband booked our stay in celebration of our anniversary and it was lovely. I must say one of the best features was being able to bring our lab with us. The room was attractive and accommodating, and Steve was attentive to detail in the short time we left the room to tidy up. A few Suggestions. An updated television capable of handling plug in of electronics, and a keurig coffee maker. Thanks!!! We will be back!
We loved our night at the Palmer House. Its location is perfect for a quiet getaway. We ;enjoyed strolling downtown to window shop and to see all the new dining places. The Boulangerie was new to us. We felt so comfortable and welcomed a t the Inn. It was a perfect time and place for us to unwind. We felt rejuvenated, as we returned home on Sunday to resume our hectic lives. We made the Cape Cod sunrise drink for our granddaughters and they loved it!
It is always a pleasure to stay at the Palmer House with our friends Bill & Pat. They have a wonderful inn. Their breakfasts are always creative and delicious and their hospitality is always gracious. Thanks Bill & Pat for a lovely weekend getaway!
The service and accomodations very good and the owner's, Pat and Bill were very helpful with information on things to consider in the area. Breakfasts were tasty and enjoyable. We would stay there again if in the area.
I loved my stay and felt completely pampered. Breakfast was great and we loved using the bikes for a ride along the bike path. My only wish was that breakfast was offered earlier for the marathon runners. But that is a small complaint. The location was perfect for the surrounding shops and eateries.
Nice Bed-and-Breakfast located in a beautiful old house. Innkeepers are very attentive and friendly. Cosy and very clean rooms, decorated with love for the details. Breakfast not very large, and a bit special for my taste (bratwurst with chocolate muffins, well...). Overall, though a bit expensive (I payed $170 incl. tax for a tiny room), I recommend this place!
The Palmer House Inn was everything we wanted and more! Our room was very elegant and romantic. In fact, it's where we got engaged! The staff were extremely kind and the breakfast the next morning was delicious. The little touches like the daily refreshments and turn down service made this inn even more special. The town of Falmouth is also very quaint and everyone was so friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return!
We had a wonderful long weekend here. Lovely decor and grounds, service was outstanding, and breakfast was mouthwatering. A great central location for Falmouth--close to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, and a nice casual walk into downtown for shopping & dining. Cape Cod beaches and attractions were just a drive or bike ride away. We are definitely returning.
What a little gem this place is! Exactly what I envisioned the perfect Bed & Breakfast to be. Thank you to Bill and Pat O'Connell for their warm hospitality. The breakfasts were fabulous and our room was absolutely charming. It is truly all of the extra little details that make this home so special. Kathy and Danny Bigioni Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
We were attending a wedding in Bourne and wanted a quiet place to spend the weekend away from the crowded venue. We arrived late but we were welcomed and shown to our room by the owner. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast both mornings was delicious, and all the staff was very friendly. The only complaint I had was a missing window screen in the bedroom let in a few moths. Lovely place.
All things considered, The Palmer House in Falmouth, MA is a must stay if you plan on a visit to Cape Cod. The rooms, service, value, cleanliness and the breakfasts are what sets this inn apart from all of the B & B's we have stayed. Indulge and treat yourself to a wonderful stay on the Cape.
Nice place, great location within walking distance of quaint town. Really good breakfast. Good location for catching a morning ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. Be sure to schedule ferry for 9:30 or after so do not miss breakfast.
We have stayed at the Palmer House many times over the past 30 years... and with each visit the level of service and hospitality improves well beyond our previous stay. Bill & Pat do an exemplary job... they certainly bring their own personal touch to this lovely Bed and Breakfast. And their attention to all of the details is incomparable.
We recently stayed at the Palmer House for a couple of days. It is spotless and the grounds are immaculate. Really, you can’t even find a fingerprint regardless of how you try. I’ve stayed in numerous B&Bs in the US and Europe, and the attention paid to detail is probably a hallmark here. In the dining room (very charming and well done), the Palmer House has lovely vintage silver napkin rings at every place setting, each featuring a different animal. I’m telling you, that made my day! Anyway, one of the best parts of our stay was the staff. When you arrive for breakfast they are welcoming, polite and their service is outstanding. The breakfasts aren’t overwhelming - the food is unpretentious and good. Remember this is an old building and not without its quirks. If I had a do-over, I would have spent the money on a larger room because maneuvering can get tight in a couple days’ vacation. We had a wonderful time.
