Reserving a Room

We would be happy to take your reservation by phone 508-362-4348 or through our website To check our bed and breakfast availability and make a reservation, please utilize the Check Availability button on the Home page or the Book Now button located in the navigation menu; both will refer you to our reservations program. If you use our online reservation system and do not receive an automatic email in return, please call us directly at 508-362-4348.

Please note, the Compass Rose reserves the right to hold certain rooms for minimum night stays depending on the flow of reservations for a given period of time.


Pricing Policy – All rates are per room, per night, based on double occupancy. The state and local tax (11.7%) is additional.

*Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Traveler’s Checks and Cash are accepted.

Minimum Stays – During peak season we may require a 2 or 3 night stay on weekends and a two-night stay on weekdays. A three night minimum for most holiday weekends applies during all seasons.

Exceptions – Short stays can be available at times when there are “availability holes” in between existing reservations. Make sure you call us directly to see if we can accommodate you. We also maintain a waiting list for shorter than the minimum stays.

Cancellation Policy – Once a deposit is made to reserve a room, the room is guaranteed for the entire stay, regardless of the deposit, and guests are responsible for the total balance of nights reserved. For single room reservations, a full refund will be made if cancellation is received at least 7 days prior to the arrival date. For group reservations (3 rooms or more) cancellation must be received at least 21 days prior to arrival for a full refund less a $30.00 service charge (per room reserved).

Children – We do accept children of all ages.

Extra Persons – If there is an extra person in a room that permits it there is an extra $50.00 charge per extra person.

Pet Policy –  We do not allow pets; however, we can suggest a local kennel: Howl A Day Inn, 12 Industrial Park Rd, West Yarmouth, MA 02673. Tel:

As a matter of fact, our own resident Lab “Beau” attends this doggy daycare at least a few times each week and gives it 5 paws! 

Smoking Policy – The Compass Rose is strictly non-smoking. A Massachusetts law requires the inn to be smoke-free and states: “Smoking in a place where it is prohibited may result in a $100 civil fine to the smoker. Employers or business owners may receive fines ranging from $100 to $300 for permitting smoking.”

Arrivals and Departures – Check-in is between 3PM and 8PM. Luggage drop off can be accommodated for earlier arrivals. Please contact the inn if a later arrival is necessary, so arrangements can be made. The inn accepts text for your convenience. You must check-out by 11AM.

Damage Policy – Any incidental charges for damages you or those in your party make at the Compass Rose will be charged to your credit card on file. 

Personal Property – Security for all personal belongings is the responsibility of the guest. The inn does not accept responsibility for any damages or theft to personal property or vehicles during the guest stay.

Parking – Parking is provided on the inn grounds.
