The Palmer House Inn, a Romantic Victorian Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast in Falmouth-By-The-Sea, New England
The Palmer House Bed and Breakfast Inn is a well-loved mainstay of Falmouth’s picture-perfect Historic District, clustered around a quintessential New England Village Green. Carefully curated to preserve its historic character, the inn has been updated to provide you with the comforts you would expect.
July on Cape Cod! What could be more breathtaking than oceans of flowers, white and blue puffballs of hydrangeas innocently displaying their summer exuberance?
From white to deep blue, these spectacular flowers let you know that you’ve come home — to Cape Cod!
Summer mornings on Cape Cod are characterized by richly perfumed air, deep green foliage, and a warm ocean with easy swimming for all.
The waters off the southern beaches of Cape Cod are unique in their direct exposure to the Gulf Stream. Result? Mild water you can really enjoy! Gorgeous, life-guarded Surf Drive Beach is a mere mile away from The Palmer House Inn and has some of the best ocean swimming anywhere in the Northeast.
Falmouth itself is a Currier & Ives Cape Cod Victorian seaside resort with a storybook Main Street with artisan shops and international fine dining, theatre, opera, a harbor and ten beaches!
Victorian decor, stained glass windows, porches with comfortable rocking chairs and wicker furniture, verdant gardens with unexpected plantings of flowers and herbs, there is plenty for you to explore!
We haven’t forgotten the Breakfast part. Enjoy home cooked Breakfasts in cool comfort in our dining room. Gluten-free or vegetarian meals are cheerfully prepared for you upon request. All we ask is that you let us know of dietary needs at the time you check in.
Al fresco breakfasts? Yours to savor on our deck.
As with any proper 1900’s home, the porch is the place to gather on warm summer days. We can offer you two porches plus a deck and various additional outdoor seating areas.
Four legged family members: Have you been turned down by other inns for wanting to bring your favorite dog in the whole world with you? Have you had doors slammed in your face? Well, we agree that isn’t fair, and to address the situation we have four dog friendly rooms available to guests with well behaved, house trained, well socialized dogs. There might even be a playdate with our huge but kind and gentle Brody in the cards! Here he is pictured in his doggie kingdom at Palmer House Inn.
Don’t be fooled by our quiet and romantic setting. A short stroll of less than five minutes will take you to Falmouth’s most romantic restaurants, cafés, bakeries, and boutiques.
Bicycle rentals and our scenic Shining Sea Bikeway are equally close. The ocean itself is a mere twenty minute walk or three minute drive from the inn!
When you’re back home after a busy day exploring, we’ve got just the place for you to relax.
