After a 34 year wait I finally got to enjoy a stay at a bed & breakfast and I am SO glad we chose this one! It was an absolutely lovely experience and we felt very comfortable and cozy. Best breakfast we had on our whole week long trip. Roasted potatoes, eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, just delish. Very hospitable caretakers.... More

Excellent. Friendly staff. Very comfortable and clean rooms. Superb breakfasts. Central location, but mercifully away from some of the noise of Main Street. I almost hate to say how good it is for fear that the next time I go to Ouray there will be no vacancies for me.

This is our third year to stay there. Hans has opened up a 5 star restaurant…Brickhouse 737. The food is wonderful and hospitality is great. Try it, the food and service... More

From the moment we walked in, Pat made us feel like we were at home. The old school charm and cleanliness of the China Clipper Inn, sets it a part as an outstanding option. 5 minute walk to Main Street and close to hikes and ATV options. The muffins are amazing and breakfast is home cooked daily. A nice rock... More

Absolutely love this place and the people. Everyone there had a wonderful open personality and it reflected in the guest also being open, appropriately chatty and helpful. The food was great and I might go back just for the muffins! We were a walk in the early afternoon on a sunday and got lucky. We were not given any attitude... More

We spent two nights in the Golden West Suite it was roomy and comfortable. The owners were gracious and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and homemade muffins are available all day. I would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect for accessing Main Street Ouray.

Exceptional B&B with very accomplished hosts Hans owns a new restaurant in town that is exceptional. His wife cooks the most fantastic breakfast (how does she get the eggs so fluffy)? The place is spotless and the rooms were comfortable and quiet and well appointed Ingrid was very helpful with places to go and things to do. This owner can... More

This is our second visit to the China Clipper and it was even better than the first if that could have been topped. We stayed 2 nights this time. Our room was very clean and furnished very well.

We stayed here during our honeymoon and loved the hospitality, delicious food, and the wonderful staff and owners who were knowledgeable about the area and hikes. Very romantic place. Get the Witch of the Waves room!
