My husband and I visited Cape Cod in early June for his birthday. We were interested in Falmouth after reading about the town and also due to its proximity to the Shining Sea Bikeway. We looked online for accommodations and found the Palmer House Inn .... we were very well pleased with our choice! We were warmly greeted by Pat...

We too loved our four night stay at the Palmer House Inn. We stayed in the W. Whitman room which was spacious and comfortable. The homely feel took a nanosecond to get used to after the slick modernity of the Intercontinental in Boston - but the charm of everything soon had us hooked! Every detail had been thought of in...

We loved everything about our week-end stay at the Palmer House. The location is perfect - for walking to town or the shuttle bus for the Martha's Vineyard Ferry. The Inn is charming and clean.

Went over a weekend during the off season. Very close to everything in Falmouth and just a 10 minute walk to the Woods Hole Ferry shuttle bus. The breakfasts were very good and make sure to get the Cape Cod Sunrise at least once.
