Close to beach close to town but out and away from everything. House is clean modern and test quaint and personable. Breakfast was made to order and staff eager to please. Just a perfect place. Not in the most common destination but if you are in area stay here

Quick walk to the beach overlook and access to the beach for agate hunting. Took the trails around the property and saw deer and an eagle. Great view of the lake from our room. Room was comfortable and clean. Karen & Doug make you feel at home. Will be back again.

We recently spent a night at the Compass Rose. The inn is located a short distance outside of town and in the woods, in a scenic and peaceful setting. There are three nature trails onsite and lots of opportunities for spotting birds and other wildlife. There are beaches and parks nearby. The inn is a large, fairly new building. The... More

It is a little bit outside Port Orford to the BnB. But then, once there, why would you ever leave? Hidden in a dell, facing the forest, a deceptively simple, but well thought out mini hotel. The room was spacious, and had everything we needed, as well as a nice view of the forest. Breakfast the next morning - well... More

Dough and Karen run a very fine Bed and Breakfast. It is in a serene location , comfortable , relaxing and very clean. Plus the breakfast was outstanding.Doug is a wealth of information on the area. We would recommend this B & B to our friends and family without hesitation.

We were pleased to find this gem of a B&B on the Oregon coast! The photos do not do justice to the clean, uncluttered Inn we discovered. Greeted by Doug, the innkeeper, we were given a brief tour and left to settle into our spacious first-floor room with French doors to the porch overlooking a lovely lake. Our room was... More

We had just arrived into town coming into the 4th of July holiday weekend and could not find a vacancy anywhere.

As coastal getaways go, they don't get more secluded or more idyllic than the Compass Rose. We had the place to ourselves - a spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished home close to a picturesque ocean creek and near to quiet clifftops overlooking a magnificent stretch of Pacific coast. The bedroom was large and comfortable, with speedy free wifi. There is... More
