Palmer House Inn

The Palmer House Inn, a Romantic Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast in Falmouth-By-The-Sea, New England

Come home to the year 1895, the Gilded Age, the age of gracious Victorian homes, of elegant family living, of unhurried holidays by the sea.

The Palmer House 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.

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!

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 former home in Cambridge, MA.

















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!

We look forward to  seeing you soon.
