Baxter Hospitality has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of The Compass Rose, a historic boutique inn on Cape Cod. Over the next five months, the family-owned management company will lead a comprehensive renovation and rebranding of the inn, which will debut this summer as Chapter House.
“At Baxter, we’re obsessed with authentic hospitality and inspiring personal connections between locals, guests and staff,” says Silvia Baxter, principal at Baxter Hospitality. “Chapter House serves as an embodiment of our ethos. By thoughtfully marrying the property’s rich history with contemporary touchpoints, we’ll provide all of our visitors with a genuine taste of Cape Cod, while our boutique size and intimate gathering spaces will nurture deeper, meaningful relationships along the way.”
Located directly on historic Old King’s Highway and a short drive away from top destination attractions and beaches, the 21-room inn is set on a sprawling lawn, which will double as a recreational space for outdoor games and as a weddings/event venue.
Chapter House will debut with a specialty craft cocktail bar and plans to open a locally inspired restaurant pop-up concept after its inaugural season. An indoor spa pool is also slated to be part of the renovation.
Chapter House also will introduce a selection of experiences designed to connect with locals and the rise of regional, work-remote travelers, including “work from hotel” programs. The inn will also be available for full-property buyouts.
