Built in 1901 as a loving husband's gift to his wife, Palmer House Inn is a natural continuation of its romantic beginnings. Set in the beautiful historic preservation district of seaside Falmouth, the inn enjoys a relaxed and scenic setting that is little changed from those early days and untouched by today's fast pace. Its carefully preserved Victorian ambience and modern subsurface infrastructure keep you comfortable with the comforts and amenities you would expect. Be it tea on the porch, a leisurely walk to the beach, a stroll downtown for freshly made ice cream or a sampling of Falmouth's excellent shopping and restaurants, be it a boat ride to wonderful Martha's Vineyard, an evening spent at a live theatre or musical performance, or a brisk bike ride down our deservedly celebrated Shining Sea Bike Path, your Cape Cod holiday can be as relaxed or as exciting as you would like it to be. Palmer House Inn. Falmouth-by-the-Sea. Cape Cod. Perfect bliss.
Your innkeepers are Tom von Zabern, Billy Brown and Billy's mom Audrie, all veterans of a lifetime of working with people.
Billy and Audrie come from a background of many decades of nursing. Tom's career was that of a real estate broker and home renovation consultant.
Then there's Brody, a goofy and gentle giant Leonberger who at 150 pounds can look overwhelming, but whose friendly demeanor and loving manner quickly wins over guests and new staff members alike.
The family lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts for many years and bought Palmer House Inn in May of 2018. It has been an exciting adventure for all, not the least part of which have been the many friendships that have developed both with guests of the inn and the folks in town.
