October 2015 Guest Reviews

10.9 Dear Bill and Pat, we enjoyed our stay and the wonderful breakfast. We loved the charm of your B&B. We decided to head to the Cape on a whim and we certainly chose the right place. Thank you for your hospitality. We will recommend it to our friends and family! – Jerilyn and Jonathan

10.7 This was the most comfortable place we have every stayed. Everything was so homey and clean. We were able to relax and enjoy. -Jim and Diane

10.6 Pat and Bill, Thank you very much for a nice stay at your beautiful inn. And thanks for the breakfast – delicious! The blueberry pancakes today were a great pleasure. We hope to come back some day. -Annette and Peer

10.5 Pat, Bill, and all Palmer House staff, Thank you so much for your hospitality and comforts during our three-night stay in your beautiful home. We came to celebrate Kate’s birthday early and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Sadly the weather wasn’t too kind but we hope to return some day and maybe get to see some Cape Cod sunshine next time! A special mention to your great kitchen team and breakfast room servers, they do a great job! – Ian and Kate

10.3 Bill and Pat, we have been visiting the Cape since we were little, but neither of us spent much time in Falmouth. We were here over the weekend for a wedding and are so happy we could experience staying here- the service, food, and attention to detail were all wonderful. We enjoyed our time here and will be back for sure. Thank you for making our trip so great! – Jeff and Andrea

10.4 Dear Pat and Bill, the thoughts that come to mind are not adequate to describe our stay at your beautiful inn. 5 star, royal, excellent, and beyond expectations. You and your staff made everything so special and grand. Thanks so much. – Bob and Pat

10.12 Dear Bill and Pat, well that’s it as  another holiday draws to a close after three weeks and almost 1600 miles as we prepare to take the last day of our trip back to Boston Airport and our flight home later today to the UK. It has been a great holiday. We have been to some wonderful places, seen many wonderful sights, and stayed in amazing accommodations, and throughout have received nothing but warm and friendly hospitality. The weather has been out of this world, the downside being a late start to “the Fall,” but we have been more than compensated to the lack of color in many other ways. We have been lucky to have ended our stay here at the Palmer House Inn. Everything about the “inn” highlights the quality of service and the accommodation we have experienced throughout New England. All the staff are friendly, wonderful people who can’t do enough for you, but all the time remaining highly professional. Everyone here has made our stay one we will remember for a long time. If we do come back to this wonderful part of the USA, then Palmer House Inn will be high on our list for a return visit. Best wishes to everyone. – Peter and Jeannette

10.12 We spent four great nights at the inn. Breakfasts were not what we expected – they were more than sufficient to set us up for days of exploring. Staff members and proprietors were welcoming and cheerful at all times making the whole experience a pleasure and a privilege. Falmouth is a perfect place for exploring locally and for the Cape over-all. This was supposed to be R&R but there is so much to see and do! Wonderful! – Pete and Liz

10.12 Dear Bill and Pat, we truly enjoyed our stay here! It was wonderful; your hospitality, kindness, etc. was impeccable. We will definitely be back. Thank you!!! – Jeanne and John. P.S. We have three kids in college and have not been able to travel much, this was wonderful!

10.9 Dear Pat, Bill, and girls, you have made us feel so welcome and comfortable in your beautiful home, a perfect end to our two week “road trip” of New England. Thank you very much. All the nice little extra touches were perfect. Best wishes- Carol and Nigel

10.8 Lovely place, lovely service, delightful experience. Thank you to Pat, Rosy, and all other staff members who helped create this lovely stay. – Helen and Prem

10.13 We just completed a 15 day vacation throughout New England, Nova Scotia, Niagara Falls, and finally Cape Cod. During that time we stayed in five B&B’s. 81 Palmer was the best of all – location, staff, food, assistance, and “attention to detail.” Could not have asked for a better way to complete our trip. Thank you for a memorable stay. – Gerry and Libby

10.11 45th wedding anniversary. An excellent base from which to explore Cape Cod. – Moya and Mike

10.16 First time at Palmer House Inn and will not be the last! We all enjoyed the charm that Bill and Pat have put throughout this lovely home! Thank you all, and Mary, and the kitchen staff, and the lovely woman who cleaned my room and did my laundry. Thanks to everyone for making our stay special!! The very best to you all. – Joan, Paul, Patti, and Joe

10.10 We had a beautiful stay at your beautiful home. We would encourage anyone who wanted a restful, welcoming place to stay – come to the Palmer House. Thank you for everything. – Joe and Marie

10.18 We had a lovely stay here. Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were friendly and helpful. – Ralph. It was simply delightful to spend my birthday here. Thanks to my husband for the thoughtful gift and thank you all for taking such lovely care of us. – Sharon

10.8 Dear Pat and Bill, Thank you for a very pleasant and comfortable stay. We are from Malaysia and we have loved Cape Cod and Falmouth, as well as Martha’s Vineyard. Such a lovely part of the U.S. and would love to come back. If we do, we would certainly make Palmer House our first choice to stay. Best wishes. – Amy and Ai

10.11 Bill and Pat, Thank you for a wonderful place to stay, so relaxing. A great place to spend an anniversary weekend. We will be back. Best wishes, Jerry and Siobhan.

10.22 Thank you so much for a truly lovely stay. The staff was amazing, the food was delightful. You are doing a wonderful job! – Rob and Jessica

10.26 Another year coming back to this charming B&B. It always feels like coming home to a dear friend of ours. Will it be a sixth time next year? – Ann-marie and Kjell

10.23 This was truly a lovely experience! There is so much to say, it wouldn’t all fit on this page! You’re the best! – Rob and Elaine

10.24 Thank you so much for being our base for the Cape Cod Half Marathon. We love Falmouth and the Palmer House! – Kellie and Todd

10.24 My husband and I have enjoyed our three nights at the inn. The fall colors are gorgeous! We rented bikes at the corner shop for two days. First, we rode to Woods Hole, about 3.5 miles. It’s a quaint and interesting town. On the second day, we rode to the cranberry bogs, around 5 miles. Beautiful woods, homes, ponds, marshes. You don’t NEED to go all the way to the bogs. We had a lovely meal at the Glass Onion. It’s within walking distance. Highly recommended. Lovely inn. – Dave and Lisa

Falmouth Village of Scarecrows, October 2015

Each fall for the last few years, one by one the scarecrows begin appearing throughout Falmouth Village, MA.  See if you can find all them all. We’re also looking forward to Falmouth’s annual Halloween festivities: the Trick or Treat Stroll, A Visit with the Night Watchman at the Museums on the Green, and Halloween Spooktacular at Highfield Hall.

While all of the bedchambers at the Palmer House have their own romantic charm suitable for relaxation after the most wonderful day of adventures on Cape Cod, we recommend the Harriet Beecher Stowe room, the Theodore Roosevelt room or the Emily Dickinson room. These rooms feature comfortable king beds, fireplaces, jacuzzi-style tubs for a relaxing stay before and after your day.

Just what we needed  – a wonderful place to restore and refresh. A great night’s sleep, great food, and a relaxing bath in my favorite Cape Cod town. Thank you for the great hospitality and conversation and breakfast. My (our) compliments to the cook too!

Warm regards,

Dear Pat and Bill,

Thanks for making our winter get-away so warm and cozy, as well as comfortable. It was wonderful to be able to walk to so many restaurants and shops, and enjoy the holiday light on the commons just before they were taken down. And then be out in nature so quickly. Best wishes to you for a wonderful year.
