Palmer House is a perfect blend of amenities, location and just about every facet for a B&B. We were surprised that Bob and Gail built this beautiful "historic" mansion in the 1990s--it looks so much like a Victorian mansion in the country. But the convenient features, even down to electrical outlets, are obviously modern. The location is also just right--out in the "country" surrounded by small ranches and blueberry farms, yet only minutes from the SE Tamp suburbs. We can't recommend this beautiful B&B enough!

I fell in love at first sight. It was adorable! The breakfast was delicious. The innkeepers were extremely hospitable. I asked my boyfriend if we could talk to them about working out a monthly rate and just move in! Lol. We loved it and would recommend it to everyone! We had a lot going on while we were there so didn't take advantage of the many things they had to offer. We may have to plan a trip back just to stay there again! What a great place! We stayed in the Southern Charm room and our friends stayed in Suite Memories. Both rooms were extremrly charming! The Very Berry French Toast and the spinach and bacon quiche breakfasts were both amazing!

This is a great place for a nice relaxing time. Gail & Bob are quite hospitable, accommodating, and offer great service - and Gail makes great breakfasts. We can't wait for our next trip. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The rooms are quite comfortable. The surroundings are serene with the quiet occasionally broken by the crow of the neighboring rooster or the moo of the cow. Even Penelope (the cat) is friendly and welcoming.

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend and congratulate him for his new career, so I decided to book a room here at the Palmer House Bed and Breakfast. My first impression when I pulled up was this is adorable ! Immediately, I was greeted by Gail and I felt so welcome. She gave me a tour of the room and I swear the room looked better in person. Even my boyfriend who does not say much says he felt as if he were at home, that it was so cozy and inviting. My boyfriend is also a picky eater and let me tell you he ate everything served at breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. One day a Quiche and then another day french toast with a blueberry sauce. This is a business for Gail, but let me tell you she truly does treat her guests like family. I happened to turn ill on this trip and she went through hoops to help me in any way. I truly appreciate everything she did for me and anyone who makes reservations here will truly enjoy every minute of it. My boyfriend and I will be recommending to all our friends and Co workers.

The inn is in a peaceful setting at the end of a rural road. The rooms were neat and clean and the breakfasts were well done.
5 on May 18, 2015
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!
5 on January 01, 2015
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!

My wife and I absolutely loved this B&B. Gail looked after us so well. Fantastic breakfast and extremely comfortable room. Easy driving distance to Tampa!

This was our first time staying at a B&B. What a great experience. The room was super clean and fresh. The food was amazing and the view is one to remember.
5 on March 04, 2014
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 room was awesome - spacious and comfy. We loved the grounds and the country atmosphere. The service was great. We really enjoyed our weekend and look forward to staying there again.

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.
5 on August 11, 2013
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

Beautiful property! We loved our stay it was a much needed couple retreat. I loved the fact it was so quiet and peaceful. Flowers were in bloom and butterflies are everywhere. I just would have liked to have more choices with breakfast.

My husband and I were so pleased with our B&B experience at the Palmer House. Situated in a rural setting, Old Florida charm was abundant. Our hosts, Bob and Gail, made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. They were engaging, but not obtrusive. We stayed in the Suite Romance Room which was decorated beautifully with a comfy four poster bed, sitting area, kitchenette (snacks were plentiful) and bathroom with a 1925 Authentic Claw Foot tub and separate shower. The french doors led out to a private patio overlooking the jacuzzi and screened in pool, and beautifully kept landscaping. Our breakfasts were unique and satisfying (especially good coffee and abundant) and our dietary requests were honored. We had a wonderful stay and plan to return soon.

5 on April 14, 2013
What a relaxing Get-Away! It is so peaceful that I had difficulty believing that I was still so close to civilization. The house and rooms are beautifully decorated and cared for, with so many little extra touches that you can see the thought put into making the stay special. Gail and Bob are outstanding hosts! They truly love taking care of their guests and are very good at it. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I'm actually looking for reasons to have a meeting so I can stay with them again!
5 on April 08, 2013
This was our third time staying at the Palmer House as well as our seventh wedding anniversary. We love it !
5 on April 08, 2013
Since we were visiting relatives in Valrico, FL, we stayed five days at the Palmer House for convenience. We sure received more than convenience! Our time at the Palmer House was awesome & the grounds were beautiful. The room was cozy & comfortable. Gail, the innkeeper, was great too. She even fixed me a special birthday breakfast & topped it with a candle!
5 on February 24, 2013
What a beautiful place. Felt pampered but not smothered. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Excellent service, lovely location and room. To wake to lowing cattle and clucking chickens is wonderful. Gail is a great hostess.

Beautiful grounds, elegantly appointed rooms, and hosts who treat you like royalty. This describes our experience at the Palmer House. We have stayed at numerous B & Bs, and this one is at the top of our list. We can't wait to return.

As a seasoned traveler who has also worked in hospitality, there are very few pleasant surprises anymore. Palmer House B&B was one of those rare and pleasant surprises! Gail, the Innkeeper, made made the stay memorable. I will recommend this property to everyone!

From the front porch swing to the pool, this is a restful and welcoming escape. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated, and stocked with all the amenities you would expect. Top-notch breakfast and service as well!

Beautiful location, our room was perfect, breakfast was delicious. Gail and Bob are super hosts, they made us feel so welcome. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and photographing butterflies was an added bonus. We couldn't have asked for a better mini-vacation.
5 on August 18, 2012
Palmer House B&B, what a lovely place to unwind and relax from the demands of work and everyday life. We had a great time, Gail and Bob made u feel right at home from the second we arrived. The rooms are excellent and very clean, the property is fantastic and the pool and hot tub were delightful. Horseback riding was arranged for us, all we had to to was show up and were treated like old friends at the R & R ranch. Would recommend this B&B for all.

Palmer House was a wonderful,welcoming, restful spot! Gail Palmer is an excellent hostess and you want for nothing! Every detail is thought of! Breakfast was delicious! A heavenly respite!
5 on May 06, 2012
I give this B&B 5/5 for everything. I stayed here for 5 nights while I attended a teaching week at Ellel Ministries. Gail is just the loveliest, very welcoming and accommodating and always checked if I had everything I needed in my room, the Spring Gardens room was delightful, breakfast was delicious, the property is beautiful and serene. I loved it! I felt so spoilt my whole time there, I'd go back in a heartbeat. Thanks Gail!

We were guests for a wedding anniversary party which was held at the Palmer House. We stayed four nights. Although the catering arranged by Gail was terrific we looked forward to her breakfast every morning! Jane and Bob
5 on September 13, 2011
We first made reservations because the B&B was very near the site of our grandson's wedding. After reading other reviews we were looking forward to our stay. Gail was on top of everything and the facilities are top notch. Can't think of a single thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable. Great breakfasts every day and no problem having an early breakfast on our day of departure to help make our flight schedule. We will visit again.
5 on September 05, 2011
My husband and I went for our anniversary. We wanted something different and love a country setting. That is exactly what we got and more. Gail and Bob Palmer were very gracious host and hostess, everything was clean and neat. The grounds were very beautiful, very relaxing swinging under the huge oak trees. We had a pleasant walk in the area, the cattle were a delight to watch. Everything was in good taste. We will be back, next time for a couple of days so we can take in the horseback riding in the area or maybe the canoeing
5 on September 05, 2011
Atmosphere is warm and inviting. A perfect getaway from a busy life in Orlando, FL. Everything exceeded our expectations. The entire weekend was fabulous. Food is delicious, parks and outdoor activities are close by, and the pool/jacuzzi are a great plus!
5 on August 28, 2011
The Palmer House is truly outstanding. It is everything its website declares it to be. You can tell that Gail and Bob take great pleasure in providing outstanding service. Breakfast was anything but ordinary. Gail, where did you learn to cook like this?! Both days we were served gourmet breakfasts. What she can do to a meal is unbelieveable. Another great feature of The Palmer House is its location. We're in the middle of the city urbanites; so hanging out for a couple of days in suh a quiet and serene sitting was beyond peaceful. There are long country roads, cows, and squirrels running here and there. We attended the ministry, Ellel, while we were there. If you ever go to one of their events, you should consider staying at The Palmer House. It's less than ten minutes away. Gail and Bob, we hope to see you again soon! Thank you for an absolutely wonderful and relaxing getaway. Eric & Sonya (Sonny)

Very beautiful setting. Would never think you are so close to the city. Quiet and relaxing, just what we needed. Very attentive, without feeling like we were smothered. Delicious breakfast. Very beautiful place!
5 on July 31, 2011
This B&B is beautifully situated at the end of a country road surrounded by pastures on two sides and forest on the back. Don't be deceived by the road leading up to the property as it makes a dog-leg and turns into a dirt road passing a few unkempt properties. The decor is beautiful but not over the top and blends in wonderfully with the country air. Location is within 30 minutes of Brandon and only about 10 minutes from FishHawk where there is a little shopping and a few places to eat. If you like mountain biking, are you in for a treat as this place is only 15-20 minutes from Alafia River State Park and Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve. Also Gail and Bob were gracious enough to allow us to keep our bikes in our room and if you stay in either Suite Memories or Suite Romance, you are on the ground floor wiht your own private French Doors that open to the outside porch. Also, just 5 minutes down the road is a wonderful horseback riding ranch and just another few minutes down the road is Alderman's Ford, a canoe launch for the Alafia River. Overall I recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing country getaway close to outdoor activities and not too far from urban life.
5 on July 29, 2011
Although complete strangers upon arrival late in the evening, Gail welcomed us as if we were relatives: she oozes "customer care". Beautiful place with an incredible eye for detail, everything matches. The feel-good-experience continued during breakfast with personalized service and genuine interest in our well-being! Highly recommended.
5 on July 26, 2011
Fit for royalty! Beautifully decorated and many special touches made our stay delightful! Gail Palmer knows just how to treat her guests to a pampered stay! Highly recommended!

Went to a week long event/school with seven other ladies. Our stay was wonderful. The pool and spa tub were very peaceful and relaxing in the evening. Our rooms were decorated very tastefully. Breakfast every morning was amazing with homemade Almond French Toast, Blueberry Cassarole, and other delicious dishes all served on floral china in an elegant Tea Room setting! We were pampered, and treated like family all at the same time. The owner even gave us a generous discount because there were so many of us. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hope to make it back one day. CH

Bob & Gail, (and Barbara) We are so grateful for the time we spent with you at your Palmer House Bed and Breakfast. Your hospitality was exquisite, we felt loved and nurtured. The rooms were wonderfully decorated and the atmosphere was sublime. Know you both are in our prayers, especially during this difficult financial time for our country. What was so encouraging to us is the fact that you went above our expectations despite the financial investment to meet our needs. Greatly, greatly appreciate all you have to done to leave wonderful memories for us. If we are able to visit our family in Lithia again, we will certainly be thankful to once more be blessed by your company and home. May the Lord continue to bless and encourage you as you do the same for many more weary travelers! Love and prayers, Roland and Jinni Shafer family.

This was total relaxation - our room was beautifully furnished and we even had a Christmas tree in our room! Breakfast was delicious and Gail is a wonderful hostess. We only stayed one night and wished we stayed longer - we will definitely be coming back for a longer stay!

I treated my sons and their friends (a total of 5 of us) to a Tampa trip. We went to Disney World and saw a Bucs game, which was the main event for my sports-minded son. We stayed at the Palmer House and everyone was thrilled with the experience. The rooms were so much like home. These themed rooms were very comfortable and clean, especially for these weary travelers from California. My "kids" are in their 20's and it surprised me to see how much they enjoyed just standing in the rain of an unexpected summer shower and rocking in rocking chairs on the porch. They work hard and go to college, so this was such an enjoyable break for them. The Palmers are wonderfully kind people and Mrs. Palmer's famous "pecan french toast" was such a treat. Thank you Palmers for giving us such beautiful memories. We hope to stay again soon. Stephanie
5 on October 06, 2010
We had a wonderful time! Gail went out of her way to make the stay relaxing and memorable. We will definitely stay again, and recommend it to others!
5 on September 28, 2010
Our son lives in Lithia and told us about the Palmer House. We had tried to stay previously, but they were booked on our dates. Very pleased we persisted. In the future, we'll check their availability before getting our airline tickets. We've stayed in B&Bs in many states. Overall this was our best experience. Don't know what they could do better. Everything was great.
5 on September 07, 2010
Great rooms, great food and great hospitality; great value. Very peaceful location, but with lots of dining and shopping opportunities within a 10-minute drive. I would not hesitate to stay there again, or recommend the Palmer House to others.
4.8 on June 10, 2010
Second chances. We like to visit B&B once, adventuring to new areas. The Palmer House respectfully deserves a second visit. Mr. and Mrs. Palmer provided everything I needed on my first visit. And the second visit gave us a special treat. The grounds are rustic and dreamlike. There are cows, horses and roosters crowing in the background of a beautiful country plantation. Breakfast is a traditional recipe from the Palmer Hotel in New York and is impecable for any 'foodie'.
5 on June 05, 2010
We stayed at the Palmer House for 2 nights with our 3 year old grandson. When we walked into our room we fell in love with it instantly. The room was spotless and decorated wonderfully. We didn't get to take advantage of the pool and hot tub, but will on our next visit. Gail was so great with our grandson at breakfast and he enjoyed her heart shaped waffle, sticky buns, and freshly picked blackberries. Our son is in the area, so we know we'll be back.
5 on May 15, 2010
This was our first experience in a Bed and Breakfast and we will definitely return. Gail and Bob were the best hosts, always making sure we were comfortable or in need of anything. They left no detail unturned, the room was wonderful and so homey. I could have stayed there forever. Unfortunately our stay was short and not long enough to enjoy all the ammenities. They were setting up for a wedding that weekend also and it was beautiful. They appeared to be making it so effortless for the bride and groom.
5 on May 03, 2010
My stay at the Palmer's House was amazing. I felt so peaceful and can't wait to return again. The room was decorated perfectly and no detail was left undone. Mrs. Gail provided a hot breakfast and pampered us from start to finish. My daughter and I really really really enjoyed our stay.

Gail Palmer, the innkeeper, greeted us on arrival by name. She showed us to our amazingly beautiful room, Suite Memories. The black and white decor was so elegant and classy. We felt so swept away by the attention to every detail. We had dinner there and it was fantastic!! We also had our breakfast there and felt so at home.

We got a gift certificate from our son and daughter in law. They had their wedding at The Palmer House in April and it was so beautiful!!! Gail made everything just right! Our night away was great!

So peaceful, great breakfast, wonderful rooms!

From the moment we first saw the Palmer House in our sights we fell completely in love with the house. The house is just gorgeous and the room was more than we could ask for. We were greeted by Gail and she is just a "Dear", so very gracious. She couldn't do enough for us and we just felt like we were at home. For breakfast we met in the dining area and it was wonderfuul. It was then that we met Bob, Gail's husband, and he couldn't be kinder to us. We will definitely visit the Palmer House again, without a doubt.

We stayed at Palmer House for one night and the hospitality, service, accommodations and breakfast were every bit as good as the cruise ship we had just departed. The property is somewhat remote so was a wonderful surprise when we found it. We also enjoyed a post-breakfast swim before departing.

Thank you Gail for making our two days Women's Retreat such a special time. You went over and above for us. We came back, and will be back because of your "over and above" attitude. Blessings, "U"

We were in Lithia for a family reunion and fortunately, were able to have a number of family members stay at the inn also. This made it very nice because we could visit at the reunion and also at the inn after the festivities. Everyone enjoyed getting in the hot tub and pool in the evening to unwind. Our rooms were gracious and had every appointment one could possibly need. Mornings were made pleasant by a delicious breakfast that you could take your time and enjoy. You are not made to feel rushed and when on vacation this means everything. I would recommend this B&B without reservation!
5 on September 18, 2009
Gail and Bob Palmer have established a B&B that is elegant , yet manages to creates an intimate environment that make you feel right at home. Gail has an impeccable memory and remembers details about her guests that enable her to meet all of their needs.

Upon arrival, Gail greeted us by name with a big smile (7 of us) immediately made us feel very comfortable.She showed us to our suites, which were impeccably clean and charming. Her signature breakfast was delicious and enjoyed by all. Our only regret was that we could not stay a few more days

The pictures do not do this property justice. It was a beautiful place. The food was wonderful. The only issues we faced were the "stocked fridge" (it wasn't stocked ever) and some of the towels weren't "fresh". Other than that we had a wonderful time and will be going back.

Our family stayed at the Palmer House for 4 days for a niece's wedding. The home and food were excellent, exceeded only by the service that Bob and Gail provided. Coming from a hospitality/food service background, I know this is no small task, especially with family members arriving at all different times.

We stayed at the two bedroom suite at the Palmer House, with friends, which was plenty of space for 4. The B & B offers a gorgeous county view from all rooms. Gail was very friendly and down to earth, and we immediately felt as if the place were our own. She altered the dining schedule to meet our needs, and the brunch was absolutely fantastic. We would highly recommend this place.

The Palmer House has the best of 'Old Florida' with the comfort and easy living of the modern; when the creative and culinary skills of the owners are added to the quality of the experience is outstanding.

Palmer House was a great getaway located in 'old rural FL' but very near 'new FL'. Each well-appointed room had it's own special theme and ambiance. The hot tub was relaxing after a day of hiking and biking. Gail and Bob were fantastic hosts and will start your day off with a beautifully served breakfast and direct you to the area's attractions!

The Palmer House was the perfect answer to our prayer to retreat and be refreshed in the Lord for a weekend get away. We were welcomed and pampered from the time we arrived until the time we left, yet given the privacy we desired. Bob keeps the grounds beautiful and prepares a mighty good steak, while Gail blessed us with her gift of hospitality and specialty breakfast. The Palmer House is a great place just outside the hustle and bustle, seated amongst vibrant oaks and a serene country setting.

THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME OUR GROUP OF LADIES GATHERED AND STAYED ATA BED AND BREAKFAST. GAIL AND BOB PALMER ARE EXQUISITE. THEY TREATED US LIKE FAMILY FROM THE DAY WE MET OVER THE PHONE. AND WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE PALMER HOUSE, IT WAS LIKE COMING HOME AFTER A LONG STAY AWAY. I OFTEN SAY, PRESENTATION ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT 50% OF WHAT WE DAY AND DO. IT CAN EITHER MAKE OR BREAK A SITUATION. THE PROPRIETOR'S OF PALMER HOUSE GET A 110%. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN TOWN CHECK GAIL AND BOB, THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOU FEEL WELCOMED.....LISA G.

Wonderful hospitality in a country setting with a splash of elegance.

We stayed in "Suite Memories". The first thing that struck us was the incredible decor - from the claw-foot tub to the beautiful black-and-white linens and towels, it was just gorgeous. It was more beautiful than any five star hotel we've seen. Gail and Bob's hospitality was so genuine. For our dinner, Bob cooked our steaks perfectly, and Gail provided wonderful complements to the meat. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to leave!! Our breakfast was delicious as well, and we so enjoyed being able to rest and relax for the night. Even though we were close to home, we felt so secluded because of the beautiful grounds of this B&B. We were so grateful to be able to come, spend some time swinging under a tree and reveling in the quiet of the country. Thanks, Gail and Bob, for an incredible stay at Palmer House!

My husband and I came here for our 20th anniversary. We stayed in "Suite Romance". The room was large and comfortable. The bed was very soft. Loved the decor. I would have liked another hook or something in the bathroom to hang damp towels on. I ended up hanging towels on the edge of the tub. Not a big deal, I guess. We were well cared for by Bob and Gail. We never felt like we were a bother. They were available if needed, but gave us the privacy we wanted. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The location is quiet and peaceful, yet not very far from town. A shopping center seemed no farther than 10 minutes away. It took us about 30 minutes to get to Busch Gardens. I recommend the Palmer House without hesitation.

The Palmer House is a wonderfully relazing retreat. It's enough "away" yet so close to everything. I look forward to this trip all year long!

My husband and I stayed at the Palmer House one evening. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. There were great little treats and drinks in our room. The Inn keepers were very hospitable and breakfast was yummy.There were several things to do right there at the inn without having to leave.

Fantastic B&B to stay at. Open-minded innkeepers with only their customers as their concern. Great rooms, great food, great value. Very country, southern in their care of me and others.

My hubby and I had almost given up on B & B's--every one we had ever stayed at either smelled bad, had dirty rooms, was overpriced, or had some other major flaw. We're not overly finicky--we just wanted the same quality stay we could get at a hotel with the charm and ambiance of a B & B. The Palmer House delivers with warm & charming rooms and grounds, absolutely spotless rooms and the graciousness and warmth of its hosts. Gail graciously accommodated my husband's allergies and made sure we had a romantic weekend. We would not hesitate to go back for another lovely getaway there again!

Our daughters wedding week was awesome thanks to the loving hospitality extended to us by Gail at THE PALMER HOUSE. You must treat yourself to a two or three night stay, breakfast and a swim or soak. Thank you, thank you.

It was truly a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time that my now husband and I spent with Bob and Gail at this wonderful place they have established together. My only regret was that I was not able to have my wedding there due to circumstances but I do hope that my husband and I will be able to spent our one year anniversary at this wonderful place.

Gail and her family have taken care of our scrapbooking group for 3 years. They have rearranged furniture, their living quarters, and meals to meet our needs. They are truly the best. The house and grounds are peaceful and beautiful. We love the Palmers and look forward to our July Scrap weekend every summer.

I visited the Palmer House for a scrap book weekend with my ten friends. Gail Palmer rearranged the furniture in her home to accomodate us and was so wonderful to our entire group! She took care of every need and kept smiling throughout our stay! It is no wonder why we return every year. We look forward to our July weekend each year as a very special event.The place is fantastic and the owners are even better. They feel like family. God bless them. :)
