The Palmer House Inn is a beautiful B&B with thoughtful attention to detail. Excellent service and breakfasts! If I am not staying with friends, this has been my go-to place to stay when I am in Falmouth. I highly recommend it.

The owners, Bill and Pat O'Connell have owned the B & B for many, many years and it shows in a positive way in the way the place looks and the manner it seems to operate flawlessly. The rooms are named for iconic people, starting...More
