Awesome experience in every way! Hans and Ingrid were as helpful and considerate as could be. Our time in Ouray was enhanced by the wonderful experience of the China Clipper Inn. We will return and I highly recommend this B and B over any other facility I've every frequented in Ouray!

This is a beautiful home. What a delight to be able to stay here. The inn keepers have maintained the perfect balance of modern elements and lovely historic charm. No dusty silk flower wreaths, teddy bears, or unfortunate polyester lace here..... Thank goodness. Terrific breakfast for activity oriented folks as well. Eggs, meat, fresh fruit, and a choice of starches... More

What a charming and first class b & b in the beautiful mountains of Ouray. The innkeepers were Dutch and very friendly and helpful with good tips on things to do. The rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the downstairs suite with the Murphy bed since there were 3 of us and there was plenty of... More

They found us a room at the China Clipper Inn B&B (only available since a 4 inch square of doorjamb had been freshly painted---otherwise whole town booked) which turned out to... More

You will feel welcome from the minute you arrive by either Hans or Ingrid. The entire place is so nice and clean and welcoming. Although we love children, we are retired and enjoy an adults only atmosphere at times and the China Clipper Inn provides that, only accepting children 12 and over.The beds are comfortable and cozy and the rooms...

It was clean, comfortable, everything needed. Would stay here longer if I could. Would return again. Near shops, helpful owner. I can't think of much more to say to fill up the 200 characters required.

We would definately stay here again if we were to visit to Ouray. Hans and Ingrid are very nice, helpful and make a great breakfst every morning. The room we stayed in had the most comfortable bed and was very quiet.
