I was recently a guest at the lovely Palmer House Inn. A beautiful and well appointed antique Victorian. The Inn and room were immaculate. The Innkeepers Tom and Bill were friendly and accommodating. The highlights of my stay were the delicious breakfast, the staff and a beautiful dog named Brody! I plan to return to this Inn again and would definitely recommend it.

- Teresita Murphy

Had an amazing stay this weekend! Owners are incredibly kind and welcoming, rooms are fantastic, and it’s a really nice location as well. Every detail of the inn is thought out from the charming decorations, to the baked goods, to the board games in the main room. Fantastic stay and we can’t recommend it enough!!

The Palmer House Inn is great. It has everything you want from a B&B. Beautiful building with lovely decor. Comfortable rooms. Delicious (and abundant) breakfasts. Beautiful grounds & a front porch full of rocking chairs. It’s a 5 minute walk to the Falmouth Main Street with lots of restaurants & shops. A 1 minute walk from a bike rental place & a minute ride to the Shining Sea Bike...See More

We loved the Palmer House Inn. Innkeepers Tom and Billy run a really great inn. Every little detail is though of. And Tom and Billy keep on top of your, making sure everything was ok. We felt like we were at home. The breakfast, made to order, were delicious. We enjoyed Brody, who was the biggest and sweetest dog ever. Oh, and did I mention baked cookies every day...See More
