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. I decided to call The Compass Rose on the off chance that they had had a cancellation and could put us up for one night. I was so happy I made that call!! Our stay here really was the... More

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

This immaculate home was a delight to stay in for the one night we were able to stay. Doug met us as we arrived and showed us around to make sure we had everything we needed. We met Karen later and she shared some insight on the area and was a delight to meet. There was a deer that practically... More

What a delightful trip we had - my family and I - we booked two rooms at the Compass Rose. Doug and Karen are wonderful hosts. Doug has built this beautiful inn himself, and his craftsmanship shows.

A lovely house and a great room. We stayed for one night on our trip down the west coast of the USA and couldn't have been happier with the place. Port Orford was a great town to overnight, and the Compass Rose was wonderful. A comprehensive breakfast set us up for the day and Doug was a great host. Thank... More

We booked short notice and we're pleasantly surprised with the accommodation and location of Compass Rose. The property is tucked away on the north side of town, it's immaculate, has its own trails and is also a very short walk to beach access. Perfect for a sunset walk.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This lovely property is on Garrison Lake, and just a few hundred feet from the beach at Paradise Point. Big rooms, all with private bathrooms, wifi throughout the house, and wonderful full breakfast served daily. The sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep at night, and there is wonderful beachcombing to be had all day. Relax by the fire on a chilly night, or pick a book from the library to read. There are birding/hiking trails on the property, or you can take advantage of several nearby hikes to Humbug Mountain, Blacklock Point, and numerous quiet beaches. ... more   less
