After sleeping 7 hours straight once I got home, I had to write to tell u what a perfect experience we had from everyone involved. We loved the concept and reality of staying in the cottages, we felt so "at home". You all were so accommodating to our every need and desire and, as mother of the bride", I can't thank you enough. it was exactly what we wanted and it went perfectly. I wish u huge success in this business, that we felt like we were dealing w loving family members, a "can and WILL DO" ATTITUDE, RATHER THAN stuffy, overly professional, all about money, experience that seems to a norm these days. thank you, thank you, thank you, please use any of us as any advertisement, comments, etc. you are the best. loving experience and memories, seared in our hearts, love Patricia, mother of the bride, proudly xxoo

Our wedding last night was phenomenal! Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I could have pulled off such a beautiful, perfect wedding. The night flew by, but Erin stayed level headed and kept the whole thing flowing. Afterwards, I kept getting compliments on how smoothly everything seemed to transition and how easy it was. I had time to dance and mingle with everyone (and EAT) and didn't have to worry about a thing!Erin, thank you so much. You are a superhero in my book because there's no way a normal human could do it all so calmly like you did ;)And thank you to the WHOLE Compass Point team (especially Mindy; you know what's up!) for giving me the night that I always dreamed of. If you have any event or party that you're throwing, or even for just a nice place to stay while you visit New Orleans, I cannot recommend Compass Point enough!

To Erin, Amy, Mindy, and the rest of the CPE staff, I cannot thank you enough for everything you've done to make my wedding day one to remember. I'm a perfectionist at heart and I notice every little detail. My family and friends were very surprised to see how calm and relaxed I was, but that's because you guys made sure that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. With half of our guests being from out of town, it was really important to me that they received a true New Orleans experience. That means great food and superior customer service. Well, all of our guests raved about both. The food was amazing. It was all fresh, home made, and flavorful. Nothing tasted "catered". The service was exceptional. Not only because of all the things you guys did to accommodate us and our guests, but because of the way that you did it with the most sincere and genuine hearts. You take pride in what you do and want to see everyone happy, and it shows. Thanks again for allowing me to fully enjoy my day without a care and for treating us like family. We are so grateful! Oh, and thanks for the sweet notes on the guest book too! We love it! :)~

New Orleans was one of the most incredible experiences of my adult life. That was due,in large part, to our host Erin. Erin and her staff gave us some the most genuine hospitality I ever experienced. Erin herself gave countless recommendations on where to go, what to do, and how to do it. The unit itself was beautiful inside and out. It was extremely comfortable with great accommodations and in a great location. I probably would have gladly paid a great deal more for this type of experience had I known what I was in store for. Thanks for everything Erin. I will be back VERY soon.

My husband, sister-in-law and I were lucky enough to ring in the New year in this beautiful city. Our trip to New Orleans was wonderful and I can attribute a lot of that greatness to our fantastic accommodations! Erin was a delight right from the start, and I mean the very start. She was easy going through the whole reservation process. She made me feel welcome and excited for the upcoming trip. When we arrived, she showed us through the house and answered all of our questions including giving us a lot of really neat history on the property and the houses themselves, which frankly made the whole thing significantly more enchanting than it already was. We were sadly there for only two days but they were wonderful. It was a great retreat to come back to after sightseeing in the cold. The beds were comfy, towels were soft, and the property is really quiet. Sitting on the stoop and taking it all in with a hot cup of coffee was my favorite moment of this trip. I've stayed in a lot of different places when coming out here and I honestly don't think I will be staying anywhere else if at all possible. Thank you so much Erin for opening up the row house to us. You gave us a whole other side to New Orleans that has now become a new favorite and staple to our future trips!

I cannot say enough about how perfect this venue was for our wedding. The location in Algiers Point is perfect and the grounds are amazing. The historic cottages and oak trees were just what we were looking for in a venue. Also, the on site cottages were so helpful for having everyone at the location. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but the staff make it an unbelievable experience. After meeting Erin for the first time, my husband and I knew that this would be where we would be getting married. Erin was so easy to work with over the planning period leading up to the wedding and her day of organization kept the flow of the wedding moving along perfectly and stress free. The rest of the staff at Compass Point is also excellent. All of our guests loved the venue so much, that I heard a couple people say they wished they were married there. Overall it was the perfect day in a perfect location.

I cannot say enough good things about Compass Point. My wedding was better than I ever dreamed! The venue was beautiful and amazing. My flowers were perfect. The food was delicious and I had people asking me for leftover boxes! Erin kept me on track throughout the whole wedding planning process, and ran the entire wedding like it was nothing. We rented the cottages for our wedding party and for some of our family and they were wonderful. Everyone keeps commenting on how beautiful the wedding was, and I owe it all to Erin and Amy!
