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 cottage in 2001
Why Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor chose Falmouth

Guestbook comments from the owner
I needed a place to stay for several weeks, while I worked on Martha's Vineyard. The cottage was very peaceful, quite, clean, and conveniently located for the perfect care free commute to the island. Great stay and easy for me to get my work done!!
