The Palmer House Inn is located near the village green and just a few steps from the start of the parade route. The Palmer House Inn is a charming Victorian B&B located in the Historic District, a quiet residential area of tree-lined streets, picket fences, colorful gardens, and elegant homes. Beautiful beaches, quaint shops, ferry shuttles and excellent restaurants, are only a short stroll from the Inn.
Join us for a guided stroll through the Ashumset Holly Wildlife Sanctuary. Located just 7 miles from the Palmer House, this is a wonderful way to start your holiday celebrations. Each person will receive a locally grown bough of holly to decorate your home.
