4. The Palmer House Inn, Falmouth, Mass.
If you want to keep it personal and get to know proud Innkeepers, Bill and Pat O'Connell, the Palmer House is for you. A stay here means waking to fresh brewed coffee, and heading down to breakfast for baked pears in brown sugar and spice, gingerbread pancakes with lemon sauce, and crispy Canadian bacon. It means, freshly baked cookies and steaming tea in the afternoon. Top off these constants with their Romance Package, which includes a welcoming room with a split of champagne and fine chocolates, and extras to purchase like a cheese and cracker tray, designer cakes, roses, or 50-minute evening massages with scented baths, and you have heaven awaiting on the Cape.
Contact Bill or Pat for pricing and customizing your special romantic package.
