Valentine's Day at The Compass Rose InnSaturday, February 14, 2015
This year Richard and I decided to do something different for Valentine's Day. With a blizzard expected and frigid temps in the single digits, we wanted stay local and avoid walking around in the freezing cold. We are huge fans of Newburyport, MA--a lively seaport town that has fabulous shopping, excellent restaurants and gorgeous scenery. In the middle of town, sits a stunning inn called The Compass Rose. We've passed it a million times, always saying how "one of these days" we should try it out--so we got a last minute reservation and away we went.
The Compass Rose is a federal reproduction built (and owned) by the incredibly talented and well-known builder Al Clifford. From the floors to the woodwork, the attention to detail is amazing. The place is gorgeous!
