“Wonderful weekend at the Palmer House, Falmouth”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

My wife and I spend a wonderful couple of nights at the Palmer House Inn in February. Since virtually no one else was there, we were able to see most of the rooms, just to look around, and the pictures on the Internet do not really do them justice. Bill & Pat were very accomodating and full of knowledge about the property and the local area. We would highly recommend the Palmer House to anyone looking for great, quiet getaway. All the rooms are beautifully appointed and there are many antiques all over the place. Great restaurant - the Glass Onion just 200 yards away.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are on the smaller side, but quite comfortable. Handicap access and facilities wit...

First time to the Cape and was I extremely fortunate to find The Palmer House Inn. A beautiful home that meets all your needs. Bill & Pat are very gracious, warm and accomodating hosts/proprietors. I was quite impressed with the details they have gone to, to make you feel right at home. The room was immaculate and beautifully decorated. I was there in the off season... very quiet and peaceful. Just what I was looking for in a "me" getaway. Tasty scones, too. I would highly recommend staying here if you're ever in the Falmouth area. It is by the nicest Inn I have stayed in. Thank you, Bill & Pat

Dear ACKSyes, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are happy that you enjoyed your "quiet season" stay. We also enjoy the winter on Cape Cod. Our weather is milder than it is inland and we have time to get to know our guests. Always, Bill & Pat

Though we only stayed one night, my wife and I enjoyed our stay. The Palmer House Inn is nice, comfortable, clean and what you would desire in an Inn.

My husband and I spent three wonderful days at The Palmer House. We are teachers and were on our February break. It was a great getaway!

Room Tip: All of the rooms seemed great from what I could tell.

Dear Kathy J, It was wonderful to get to know you last week. We enjoy the school vacations when the teachers come to stay, shop and enjoy our fine restaurants. We were also happy that you were able to take advantage of our quiet season special. You stayed three nights and the third night was half price. The special lasts through Memorial Day. We are looking forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Bill & Pat

My boyfriend and I just spent two nights at the Palmer House Inn, and the experience was top notch from start to finish. The rooms are lovely & spotlessly clean. They are fully supplied with everything you'd need for a comfortable visit. The innkeepers, Bill & Pat, are warm and friendly and quite accommodating. We had trouble with our TV set a little later at night and Pat came right down to help us resolve our issue.

Falmouth is a beautiful town, and the Palmer House Inn is steps away from wonderful restaurants and shops. Also an easy and quick drive to the beaches.

Highly recommend!

Our two-night visit to the Palmer House Inn was wonderful. We stayed in the Emily Dickinson room, which has a gas fireplace and whirlpool tub. These were definitely appreciated, as we stayed during the coldest nights of the year! As part of the Romance Package, we recieved a box of Godiva chocolates, a split of champagne, and a rose. The room was spotless, the towels and bathrobes were in like-new condition, there is a nice sized closet with plenty of hangers, and a bureau with drawers for storage, and there are also a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room for your convenience. Bill and Pat were helpful and interesting to talk with. Breakfast was good, especially the fruit courses ( broiled half grapefruit the first day, and a fresh berry bowl the second.) Despite the cold, we walked to dinner both nights as excellent restaurants and shopping are very close to the inn. This is a great place to stay if you want to escape into quiet luxury and leave the world behind!

Room Tip: During the winter stay in the main house - then you don't need to cross the driveway in the cold...

Pat and Bill, the innkeepers, made our stay extremely pleasant. The moment you step into the parlor of the Palmer House Inn, you are transported back in time. From the decor, to the background music, to the food, Bill and Pat's heartfelt meticulousness shows.

I would highly recommend the Palmer House Inn for a couple's getaway. In all seasons, this establishment is a gem.
