The bed and breadfast website stated that the two guest rooms had private bathrooms. This was a misleading claim. The queen bedroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. There is no private bathroom in the king bed room. Instead, there is a bathroom in the hall outside the queen and large bedroom. From the moment that we arrived to the moment we left, we felt rushed. Apparently, the owners planned a full weekend for themselves when we were there, and they wanted us to check out as soon as possible on Saturday morning, so they could go to a baby shower. After traveling a long trip, I was so looking forward to a hot shower and a warm bed when we got to the Compass Rose. Instead, the owner insisted that we sit in the parlar once we got there to chat. She asked me a million questions that had nothing to do with me being tired and taking a hot shower. There is no walk room in the house. There was wall to wall antiques. The bed were extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was good. However, the dust made it hard to sleep and breathe. The three antique clocks that chimed every 30 minutes also made it difficult to sleep. There were large flies in the house. There was also a spider in my bed. My only advice to anyone would be to stay away.
They claimed to have Wifi, but they never gave me the passcode.
