Palmer House is a perfect blend of amenities, location and just about every facet for a B&B. We were surprised that Bob and Gail built this beautiful "historic" mansion in the 1990s--it looks so much like a Victorian mansion in the country. But the convenient features, even down to electrical outlets, are obviously modern. The location is also just right--out in the "country" surrounded by small ranches and blueberry farms, yet only minutes from the SE Tamp suburbs. We can't recommend this beautiful B&B enough!
I fell in love at first sight. It was adorable! The breakfast was delicious. The innkeepers were extremely hospitable. I asked my boyfriend if we could talk to them about working out a monthly rate and just move in! Lol. We loved it and would recommend it to everyone! We had a lot going on while we were there so didn't take advantage of the many things they had to offer. We may have to plan a trip back just to stay there again! What a great place! We stayed in the Southern Charm room and our friends stayed in Suite Memories. Both rooms were extremrly charming! The Very Berry French Toast and the spinach and bacon quiche breakfasts were both amazing!
This is a great place for a nice relaxing time. Gail & Bob are quite hospitable, accommodating, and offer great service - and Gail makes great breakfasts. We can't wait for our next trip. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The rooms are quite comfortable. The surroundings are serene with the quiet occasionally broken by the crow of the neighboring rooster or the moo of the cow. Even Penelope (the cat) is friendly and welcoming.
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend and congratulate him for his new career, so I decided to book a room here at the Palmer House Bed and Breakfast. My first impression when I pulled up was this is adorable ! Immediately, I was greeted by Gail and I felt so welcome. She gave me a tour of the room and I swear the room looked better in person. Even my boyfriend who does not say much says he felt as if he were at home, that it was so cozy and inviting. My boyfriend is also a picky eater and let me tell you he ate everything served at breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. One day a Quiche and then another day french toast with a blueberry sauce. This is a business for Gail, but let me tell you she truly does treat her guests like family. I happened to turn ill on this trip and she went through hoops to help me in any way. I truly appreciate everything she did for me and anyone who makes reservations here will truly enjoy every minute of it. My boyfriend and I will be recommending to all our friends and Co workers.
As the road ends, you’ve almost reached the destination. The location is peaceful and serene, nestled among woods and fields. You arrive at the gate of the Palmer House Bed & Breakfast, where the meandering drive winds through majestic oak trees brimming with Spanish moss. Peace and serenity abound. As you stroll the sidewalk past the fountain over to the wrap-around front porch, with just enough rocking chairs, you feel pleasantly justified in this choice for a bed and breakfast. Greeted at the front door by the gracious proprietor, there is a feeling that you belong here. We stayed in the upstairs suite in the house. The rooms are well decorated with oversized comforters, ample dressers, a few comfortable chairs, and refrigerators with water and soda. The in-room coffee makers were presented along with some tasty coffee, tea and cookies. All very nice. All things, the hosts included, there to make you feel welcome! Go outside. There’s a pool, a gazebo, meandering paths around the grounds, a hot tub, and more. Take a look at the plants they are fostering. Stand at the fence and see the animals in the pastures. At the end of your day, you’ll sleep in the quiet surroundings. As you awake, remember, this is a bed and breakfast. Mrs. Palmer prepares wonderful ‘sit-down and enjoy this’ kind of breakfasts. Think breakfast casseroles and blueberry French toast! Your hosts have worked so hard to create this wonderful experience for you. Enjoy yourself! Enjoy the peace! Enjoy the good feeling knowing you can come back here… because you should!
I recently stayed at Palmer House whilst in Florida on business. It was great. Food, hospitality, room and the overall quality of the accommodation was excellent. Bod and Gail are lovely people and I would strongly recommend Palmer House as a place to stay if you are needing friendly and comfortable accommodation in the area.
From the moment I made our reservation to the moment we left everything was perfect. The warm friendly welcome and personal service throughout our stay was 100 times better than anything you will get at any hotel. Our room was perfect from the heavenly bed to the coffee in the morning and very clean. The breakfast was great! Thank you Gail!
Beautiful location, quiet and serene. Bob and Gail are outstanding hosts and Gail's breakfasts are delicious. Hot tub and pool in the back and fire pit was great on a nice, cool, Florida evening under the stars. My wide and I stayed in the Suite Memories room. Nicely appointed and plenty of room, including a nice sitting area. Has direct access to the outside, where you can sit in a swing on the porch. Every morning I sat in the gazebo and listened to the sounds of nature. I highly recommend Palmer House B & B.
Our 1st visit to a B&B. This place is great. So peaceful... out in the country but still convenient to shopping and plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Or.. you can just stay on property and enjoy walks, swimming, hot tub and peaceful alone time with your spouse. The breakfast served by Gail was fantastic. The table settings and decorations were all so beautiful. We felt pampered. This place is highly recommended. We will be back for sure.
I have been at the Palmer House for women's retreats, personal retreat, and even had friends stay for their honeymoon. All of us highly recommend it. It is centralized enough, to do as much or little as you want, in the Tampa Bay, Orlando areas. Gail Palmer is a dear, and goes out of her way to make sure you have what you need when you need it. I look forward to my next retreat. Thank you again, Dr. D
Beautiful property! We loved our stay it was a much needed couple retreat. I loved the fact it was so quiet and peaceful. Flowers were in bloom and butterflies are everywhere. I just would have liked to have more choices with breakfast.
My husband and I were so pleased with our B&B experience at the Palmer House. Situated in a rural setting, Old Florida charm was abundant. Our hosts, Bob and Gail, made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. They were engaging, but not obtrusive. We stayed in the Suite Romance Room which was decorated beautifully with a comfy four poster bed, sitting area, kitchenette (snacks were plentiful) and bathroom with a 1925 Authentic Claw Foot tub and separate shower. The french doors led out to a private patio overlooking the jacuzzi and screened in pool, and beautifully kept landscaping. Our breakfasts were unique and satisfying (especially good coffee and abundant) and our dietary requests were honored. We had a wonderful stay and plan to return soon.
We loved our stay at The Palmer House. Cozy beds, delightful rooms that shout relax and be at peace. Gail did all she could to accommodate use on our stays. I have been passing the good word of their home to all I know.
What a relaxing Get-Away! It is so peaceful that I had difficulty believing that I was still so close to civilization. The house and rooms are beautifully decorated and cared for, with so many little extra touches that you can see the thought put into making the stay special. Gail and Bob are outstanding hosts! They truly love taking care of their guests and are very good at it. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I'm actually looking for reasons to have a meeting so I can stay with them again!
Since we were visiting relatives in Valrico, FL, we stayed five days at the Palmer House for convenience. We sure received more than convenience! Our time at the Palmer House was awesome & the grounds were beautiful. The room was cozy & comfortable. Gail, the innkeeper, was great too. She even fixed me a special birthday breakfast & topped it with a candle!
Beautiful grounds, elegantly appointed rooms, and hosts who treat you like royalty. This describes our experience at the Palmer House. We have stayed at numerous B & Bs, and this one is at the top of our list. We can't wait to return.
As a seasoned traveler who has also worked in hospitality, there are very few pleasant surprises anymore. Palmer House B&B was one of those rare and pleasant surprises! Gail, the Innkeeper, made made the stay memorable. I will recommend this property to everyone!
From the front porch swing to the pool, this is a restful and welcoming escape. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated, and stocked with all the amenities you would expect. Top-notch breakfast and service as well!
