We stayed at the Compass Rose late June 2006 and the Inn exceeded our high expectations. Location is dead center of town, so easy walking distance to all sights & restaurants. All rooms are very large, 1-bedroom suites, beautifully furnished, very comfortable, fantastic beds & lovely, large bathroom. All suites come with refrigerator & extra sink in dressing/closet area. Living rooms have sofas/loveseats, extra chairs, fireplace, desks for those that have to work & WIFI. At the top of the building is a cuppola open to all guests that provides a wonderful 360 view of Newburyport. [We sipped wine & watched a short but sizzling, summer rainstorm; lots of lightening & thunder!] First floor lounge area is lovely, with lots of tourist info. Dining area is right off lounge and breakfast was very good.
Would highly recommend this to East Coast residents looking for a special weekend/event getaway, as well as toursits doing the coast. Their website photos are accurate but downplay how really beautiful their Inn is. Not for those on a tight budget but definitely worth every penny.
