The Compass Rose will open for the 2014 season beginning Easter Weekend, April 18, 2014. This summer the Inn will be operated under new management by Kevin Sampson and Linda Stackhouse, owners of Adventure High on Grand Manan. After successfully managing the Compass Rose during the 2013 season we are excited to now be the owners of this historic inn and look forward to greeting you and continue to make this your home away from home!

The Compass Rose We welcome guests with warm hospitality to this Heritage Inn. We are located on Grand Manan Island in the heart of the Bay of Fundy. The Compass Rose Heritage Inn consists of two charming seaside houses. Our rooms are friendly and inviting with spectacular ocean views and antique furnishings. The inn started life in the early 1900s as a post and telegraph office serving the village of North Head. In 1928 a team of horses moved another house onto the site adjoining the post office. The house next door was built in 1912. Known as Flagg House it now forms part of the Compass Rose property.
Our dining room provides breathtaking views of the Bay of Fundy and the busy fishing harbour. Dining at the Compass Rose is always a special occasion! The Compass Rose Dining Room
Grand Manan Ferry Compass Rose guests return year after year. They are bird watchers, hikers, cyclists, artists, and kindred spirits who seek the simple life. Walks along majestic cliffs, picnics on secluded beaches, trips to see the puffins and whales, and chats with local fisherman on the wharves are all a part of the Island's charm. The buildings are completely non-smoking, and unfortunately not suitable for children or for pets.

Please phone us as we are always delighted to chat about things to do and points of interest on Grand Manan. You may be interested in reading a review of The Compass Rose at or watching a video about the island (video 1, video 2).
