Take I-95 to I-195 in Providence to Route 25 East to Bourne Bridge.
Depending on traffic, you may find the Hutchinson and Merritt Parkways to be easier to drive. Take Exit 54 to the I-95 in Milford and continue East.
We also encourage NYC residents to take one of the Long Island to New London, CT ferries and then to continue on I-95. Those of our guests who have chosen this route have reported enjoyable and low-traffic travel on the Connecticut side of Long Island Sound.
Regardless of which route you are contemplating, we recommend consulting with the Google Maps directional app or with similar apps such as Waze.
Take I-90 to 495 South (will become Route 25) to Bourne Bridge.
Take Route 3 South to Route 6 to Bourne Bridge.
An alternate route is to take the Southeast Expressway to 128 north, exit left on 24 south and exit right onto 495 south to the Bourne Bridge. We recommend consulting an on-line travel app to determine which route has less traffic.
Follow Route 28 South approximately 12 miles – divided highway will become a two-lane road. Continue straight through the traffic signal at Jones Road for approximately 1/2 mile. Route 28 (Palmer Ave.) turns left towards the center of Falmouth. Palmer House Inn is the first house on the left past the shops. The driveway to our private, off-street parking is before the Inn.
Tesla Charging for our Registered Guests
Any registered guest who has a Tesla or any other Electric Vehicle can use one of our two complimentary charging stations. The charging stations are for the exclusive use of our guests, so there’s typically no wait time to use the station. Please tell us if you have an electric car, and we will turn on the charging station for you and mark your parking spot with traffic cones prior to your arrival.
To get to the Palmer House Inn there are two airports readily accessible to Cape Cod.
If you are using public transportation, you may want to consider LOGAN AIRPORT in Boston, Massachusetts. We recommend the Peter Pan Bus Lines’ Woods Hole Bus which departs from Terminals A, B, C and E. We strongly urge you to make prior on-line or telephone reservations. Your destination is Falmouth, MA, the second to last stop, and the stop before the final Woods Hole stop.
For those of our guests looking to rent a car, we often recommend T.F. GREEN Airport in Providence, Rhode Island. Although it is actually two miles farther from Falmouth than Boston’s Logan Airport, you will likely encounter far less traffic than you would in Boston, and be at your vacation destination anything from 30 minutes to 1 hour faster! Take the Airport Connector to I-95 East to Providence and take exit 19 onto Route 195 to 495 East to the Bourne Bridge.
