Boston Gobe recognizes the Palmer House Inn, Falmouth

You may recall that Dolores and I have had a couple of pleasant weekend stays at the Palmer House Inn, Falmouth. Both times we went in August for the dual purpose of celebrating our anniversary, and to allow me to run the Falmouth Road Race.

My summary for the weekend in 2006 can be found here. (I started writing online in September 2005, after we were there, so that is not available.)

The Ellen Albanese, writer for the Globe says, in part:
The best part of visiting a bed-and-breakfast is the personal touch, the knowledge that you are staying in a place that is, if not the actual residence of the innkeepers, at least a home they have chosen to treat as their own.

In such a place, you feel more like a guest than a customer, and that's just how we felt at the Palmer House Inn. Pat and Bill O'Connell were consummate hosts, greeting us warmly, giving an unhurried tour of the 1901 main house, asking questions about dietary restrictions and coffee preferences, offering to bring ice to our room. They managed to make us feel that nothing was more important to them than our comfort.

The inn is an imposing Queen Anne-style Victorian at the edge of Falmouth's historic, shop- and restaurant-filled downtown, which makes it central but quiet. There are 12 rooms in the main house, four in the guest house (including a handicapped-accessible room), and a two-bedroom cottage.
