Doug welcomed us to his custom built bed and breakfast with a friendly smile and fire in the hearth. Great location, close to the shoreline and close to town. Rooms tastefully decorated with all required amenities including wifi. Breakfast was delicious and not the highly sugar-syrupy fare many B&B's serve. We had a delicious vegetable frittata, fruit, and scone made... More

Everything about the Compass Rose Bed and Breakfast was absolutely spot on and one night at this lovely accommodation was way too short. Doug made us feel really welcome when we arrived, explaining everything we needed to know and giving us some great tips about the local area and places to eat. We stayed in the Cape Blanco room on...

My husband and I loved our time at Compass Rose. We only wished with stayed another night. Doug was an excellent host and made a great breakfast. House was extremely clean!

Husband and I were on a motorcycle trip down the coast...had not made reservations anywhere...big mistake! Lucky enough to find this GEM! Our room was spacious, bed was comfy. All was VERY clean. Water was available to make a cup of tea--just what we needed after a long rainy drive! Doug was so hospitable and made us feel so welcome.... More

We stayed for just a night. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was nice, and the location was lovely. I would just recommend that they not put plastic cups wrapped in plastic (like they do in lower-end hotels) in the bathrooms--maybe a real cup that you can put a toothbrush in w/o it falling over instead. Honestly, that was my... More

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
