The China Clipper B&B is undoubtedly the best place to stay in Ouray. The inn is beautiful , spotlessly clean with beautiful sittings rooms and furnishings. Our hosts Ingrid & Hans were fantastic. Breakfast was amazing!! From the fresh baked muffins, excellent coffee, eggs, perfectly crisp browned potatoes and fresh orange and cranberry juice we lacked for nothing. It was... More

Hans and Ingrid are the perfect hosts and serviced two outstanding breakfasts....eggs, bacon, potatoes and fresh made muffins one day and an egg frutta, blue berry pancakes with fresh baked muffins the...

Road trip: no reservations, destination, completely seat of our pants etc.--Ouray was booked solid--before we got to Plan B--Ingrid returned our call and had a room available. Ingrid and Hans are the kindest, most considerate, capable Inn owners anywhere. The China Clipper is by far the best place to stay in Ouray and the surrounding area--we checked everything out! The...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. Beautiful place and excellent service. We really appreciate how Ingrid and Hans went above and beyond to meet our expectations. Breakfast was wonderful and yes "the muffins" live up to their name. Hot tub was just outside our door and was very relaxing. The Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance to... More

We stumbled on to this place accidentally and were pleasantly surprised by all of it! The rooms are very nice. We enjoyed a cool night in the hot tub. The breakfast was better than anything we could have purchased at a restaurant and the Inn keepers are fabulous!

Some places on Trip Advisor raise such high expectations with their reviews, but the China Clipper Inn is not one of them-it deserves all the praise it gets and more. We love to stay in Ouray over the 4th of July and in the past our lodging of choice was the superb Beaumont Hotel. We waited a little too long... More

Friends recommended this place because they had a great stay. I loved staying there. The room was spotless, quiet and very comfortable. The owner gave a tour of the amenities as she showed you to your room. Breakfast each day is delicious! Plus they have the leftover muffins out in a covered cake plate if you need an afternoon snack.... More

Great place, spacious rooms, clean, amazing breakfasts, and Hans and Ingrid are great hosts. Within walking distance of the tourist part of downtown. Zero complaints. Our stay was perfect. They were informative with good suggestions about the area and really seemed to care that we enjoyed our stay.
