Village LIFE: Explore the village of Falmouth

Simply Divine

Next door, Settings offers “Unique Home Décor” according to their sign. Their sign doesn’t lie. Inside, the store is organized into sections displaying various crafts and artwork by local artists. Woodcrafter Ed Soltesz creates beautiful, one-of-a-kind wooden tables from reclaimed items and imagined in ways never thought possible. Local artist Mindy Reasonover’s pieces delight with their vibrant colors and natural subjects, like a hedge of hydrangeas. Owner Andrea Law is an Annie Sloan paint dealer and often hosts workshops on how chalk paint can transform any piece of furniture in your home.

A bit farther down the street, the former Eastern Bank has been transformed into the second location for Estia. The new Falmouth location is bigger, seems brighter and yet still features the same delicious pizza and Greek specialties introduced at the original Mashpee Commons location. An outside patio promises to be a perfect spot in the warmer months.

Just off the triangular Village Green, with its surrounding churches and stately homes, the Museums on the Green complex is the home of the Falmouth Historical Society. Next door the Palmer House Inn stands tall with its three-story turreted tower. Open year round, the wrap-around porch offers a warm welcome to arriving guests. Innkeepers Tom Von Zabern and Billy Brown-Von Zabern took over in 2018 and are having a ball as they embrace this new chapter of their life. Their cohort, Brody, a spirited Leonberger (a very large, friendly dog) is a testament to their dog-friendly policies.
