On May 31, we took over the ownership of the Palmer House Inn, and made the move from busy Cambridge, Massachusetts to lovely Falmouth! We arrived and immediately set out to work to learn what we needed to know about running Palmer House. Since then, we have made some changes which we very much hope will add to your comfort and to your enjoyment of your stay with us. Here’s a partial list of things we have done:
Television sets in all rooms have been replaced with flat-screen smart TV’s.
We have installed a fire pit with a comfy sitting area towards the back end of the property on the knoll above the parking lot.
A program is underway to install central air conditioning with individual thermostats for each room. Installations are being made in the guest house first, with the third floor of the main inn next on the schedule followed by the second floor of the inn.
Rooms in the guest house are now dog-friendly, for those of our guests with four-legged family members.
Six of our guest rooms have been redecorated in restful, relaxing Cape Cod colors with simple, pleasing decor schemes. For those of our guests who loved the existing Victorian decor, a number of our guest rooms will remain as they were.
The inn itself continues to be a 1901 Queen Anne Victorian, its detail, woodwork and stained glass windows carefully curated to ensure that they will be here for generations to come. The staff you have come to know and love over the years has remained and is here to help keep you comfortable.
Palmer House Inn will continue to offer special attention to guests celebrating birthdays, weddings, elopements and anniversaries, with an array of delicious pastries and tempting goodies to mark your special occasion.
Our kitchen crew has worked hard to bring you additional dishes for breakfast. Already, our bread pudding has garnered accolades and requests for more from guests. Our singularly exclusive breakfast granola, made in house has generated rave reviews. And don’t forget our special Palmer House blend of gourmet coffee, which can’t be found anywhere else on the planet, and which has had guests clamoring for more!
Lastly, we have been hard at work to develop an optional concierge program for you. Our first available item on the menu is customized cruises for you to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket on a 60′ luxury sailing yacht! We will have more to say about this in an upcoming post.
We are dedicated to making your stay enjoyable and relaxing. At any time if there is anything you need, please come see any of us. We are here for you.
Your new hosts,
Billy, Audrie and Tom and the Palmer House Staff
