About Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor
I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.
Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2001
Why Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor chose Falmouth

Great stay on Cape Cod
We rented the entire property, house and cottage, for a family gathering. There were 16 in our group and all were comfortably accommodated. The rooms were more spacious than they appear on the website. The dining area and kitchen easily met our needs. The location was a plus due to its ease of going anywhere on-Cape or off-Cape. We never had to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic to/from our daily destinations. Jeanette, the property manager, was wonderful! She was very responsive to our few requests. The fact that 16 people stayed on the property and everyone was happy is a testament to the property and the management. (We are avid VRBO users and this has not always been the case.) The only reason I gave 4 stars vs. 5 is because the sofas and chairs in the sitting areas need to be replaced.. They were not comfortable and the appearance detracted from the ambiance of the home. Also there needs to be a better selection of sleeping pillows for the bedrooms. Other than those two issues I would give the property and it's management a solid 5 star rating.
Wedding trip to Cape Cod
We had a group of 8 and rented the main house. The location was perfect for our travels while there very centrally located. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious and loved the common areas were great. Very much enjoyed our stay and Jeanette’s response time was always immediate and accomodating. Would rent again for sure!!
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am so happy your enjoyed your getaway!! See you on your next adventure. Travel safely!!
Great for large group gathering
Jeanette was very responsive and easy to work with during our stay. The space was big enough for a family gathering and close to plenty of things to keep us busy. My kids especially loved the playground right across the street! We’d certainly love to return and stay again!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was such a pleasure accommodating your family. I hope to see you in the future. Sincerely, Jeanette Robinson
Great house for a family reunion. Really nice property.
We found the house to be very accommodating and so too the host. Every room was spacious and each with a private bathroom. Kitchen was very easy to make family meals in. Location on the bike trail and the free bikes was a big hit as was the pond across the street for kayaking and fishing. Plenty of parking. Only issue we had was the internet was terrible. Bad connection and many of us could not connect. House has only an extender and no direct access to the router--this should be fixed. But otherwise, everything else was excellent.
Biking and beach time
It was a great location. The bike trail was a big plus and so convenient. Very easy to get to restaurants. We even walked to several. Enjoyed a fire on the patio on our last evening. Everything was very pleasant.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. It was a pleasure accommodating your family. I wish the weather had been better for your trip and I hope that you are able to enjoy this beautiful area in the future!!
Located Directly on the Shining Sea Bikeway makes us a truly unique place to stay. Bikes usage comes with every stay, making it even easier to take in the scenic beauty that surrounds us in Falmouth. With 24 bikes to choose from, getting to Highfield Hall or even Martha's Vineyard is easy.
