My wife and I had the good fortune of staying 2 nights at this wonderful inn. When you step into the Inn and meet the wonderful innkeeper, Gloria, you know that there is nothing more important to the staff than to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Our room was nicely appointed, spotlessly clean, and the linens and towels were... More

My brother and I stayed at the Compass Rose Inn because we wanted to visit Salem for Halloween and a local suggested it. I am glad they did because the Inn was excellent and one of the best places I have ever stayed on any vacation. It is a lovely building, with a calming welcoming atmosphere. The Innkeeper was very...

I can't say enough about the Rose Compass Inn, from the friendly attention to detail by the Innkeeper to the beautiful furnishings to the delicious breakfast, our stay was perfection. Our room was clean and comfortable. I look forward to another visit - soon!

My husband and I stayed at the Compass Rose in charming Newburyport and were extremely pleased. My sister and her husband and their adult children also rented rooms - all of which were lovely, each room had its own style but were comfortable and very clean. The bed and linens were great. The inn is modern yet has a ton... More

My husband and I took the "cook 'n stay" package a few times and enjoyed it so much, the chef was excellent and we learned a lot of wonderful cooking techniques and wonderful recipes and got to sit down to a wonderful dinner prepared by all that attended! Getting to meet new people enjoying the same interests was a good... More

My family and I recently took over the entire Compass Rose for my wedding weekend, and we had a wonderful stay. The building is relatively new, the rooms are clean and incredibly spacious, the baths feature top bath products, plenty of space, and, at least in our case, two sinks, which made getting ready for our various events very easy....

I grabbed the last available room at the Compass Rose Inn on booking.com and was looking forward to a great weekend getaway. The next day, I received a note from the Inn saying they were booked up and could not honor the reservation. Knowing mistakes happen, I was already in transit and asked for suggestions (I'd never been to Newburyport.)... More

We reserved rooms for our son's wedding. We reserved rooms here and at another inn in town. We wanted to stay here ourselves! Lovely, welcoming and perfect. Once you're parked you won't need your car all weekend. Everything Newburyport has to offer is nearby.
