Our Romance Room was very inviting, warm, and cozy. We loved the setup of the cottages. It was a much needed relaxing stay. Mrs. Barbara was very kind and patient describing in detail everything about the Clipper House Inn and Winery. We will be back. :)

Another great stay at the Flying Cloud room! This was relaxing and greatly needed. Room was comfortable and clean. Wifi is a bit sketchy, so download any movies you want to your device prior to arrival. Thx Barb and gang for your hospitality and extra efforts. God bless and see you next time.

Our cottage was beautiful. The garden was amazing. Walking distance to all the attractions I will be booking there again soon. I would recommend this place to anyone. So much better than staying at a chain hotel. The fresh bread and fruit basket each day was delicious.

Great, location! Quaint and great service. Only reason I didnt give 4 stars.is that breakfast for next day is put in room day before and is just some muffin/sweet bread type stuff and some fruit (an orange, apple, pear, kiwi, a few grapes). Would have liked to have an actual breakfast... But still really enjoyed it. We will be back.... More

I'm sorry about not having a hot breakfast. I tried doing that for two years when we first opened and we couldn't get people to get up and go to breakfast. It seemed everyone preferred to stay in bed rather than have a hot meal. We are too small to have a staff that will deliver to the cottages. Hopefully... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the Flying Cloud cottage and quite enjoyed it. I'm sure we will be back again. The long list of amenities were all provided, the innkeeper was charming, and the grounds were spectacular. It made a convenient base for exploring the area, being very near Johnson Space Center, and within easy walking distance... More

My husband and I took a weekend (Thur-Sat) trip to Khema for my birthday. We normally stay in hotels on our trips so I had no idea what to expect when he informed me we would be staying at a B&B. We drove up and I fell in love! We stayed in the Romance Cottage ...the cottage has personality, clean,... More

This sweet bed and breakfast was warm and welcoming. Wonderful staff and excellent location. Will definitely return again. We were greeted by delicious baked goods and given coupons for free wine tasting at the winery.

Weekend getaway was highlighted by a wine tour and fantastically great fruit wines. Bed and linens high quality. Cottage a little musty, but full of antiques and cozy feel. Garden was one of Clipperhouse' s best amenities. Innkeeper is the nicest host and very knowledgeable about wine making. Homemade dessert bread was delicious.

My husband and I were in town looking at boats and did not have a reservation anywhere...we usually find more interesting places by driving around a bit. We had checked 3 hotels that were less than interesting nearby and were starting to get discouraged. At the last minute, we passed these cottages with a small sign out front. It was... More

This is our second visit to Clipper House. Our first visit was 3 years ago when our niece was married. This time we attended a 50th anniversary party. We arrived early and the innkeeper accommodated us. She gave us several ideas for meals. We stayed in the Romance cottage and it was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the vertical... More
