Baxter Hospitality announced its expansion 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 as Chapter House this summer. Chapter House is Baxter Hospitality’s second renovation project in New England. The group also owns and operates Sesuit Harbor House, a boutique inn.
The 21-room inn is set on a sprawling lawn, which will double as a recreational space for outdoor games and as a scenic 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.
Baxter Hospitality was founded by husband-and-wife team Phil and Silvia Baxter in April 2019. Working alongside their daughter, Tania, the family collectively brings a comprehensive skill set of hospitality experiences to the management group. Phil, whose past roles include director of openings and operations for sbe Group and general manager of the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel, leads front office, F&B, finance and marketing. Silvia, who most recently served as a director of revenue management for Crescent Hotels and Resorts, handles sales, distribution, revenue management, housekeeping and guest services. Tania spearheads creative, including website and social media.
