My boyfriend surprised me with a romantic birthday get away at the Clipper House Inn. We spent four days staying in the Redoubtable cottage and what a wonderful time we had! Barbara and Jerry greeted us by name, showed us around the grounds and to our room and then gave us the peace we needed. We felt so welcomed and...

We spent Saturday evening at the Clipper House at Kemah Boardwalk in conjunction with attending a birthday party on the Boardwalk. The cottage, Redoubtable, was lovely. The wine cake Barbara made was delicious! Enjoyed the fresh fruit bowl too. The cottage was very clean. We will go back.

My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary at the Clipper House Inn. We were pleased to stay in the Flying Cloud cottage. Nice, cozy place. Very comfortable king-sized bed and a jacuzzi tub for two. Has nice screened-in porch to sit and enjoy the bay breeze. The courtyard at the inn is like a quiet, tropical paradise. Lots of...

We visited the Clear Creek Winery, Vineyard & Resort and were lucky to stay at the Clipper House Inn which is located right behind the winery. The Innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Flying Cloud cottage and it was a great place to stay. It is also within walking distance of the Boardwalk so overall our...

We stayed in the 'Flying Cloud' cottage. It was VERY nice and elegant. Can sit and relax on different porches of house. The grounds are peaceful. I thought their winery would not have good wines, but to my surprise there were multiple very good and different wines. Going home with a few bottles. Enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I were in search of a romantic destination for our five-year wedding anniversary. What we found at the Clipper House Inn more than satisfied our desires! At first, we were a bit taken aback when we drove into Kemah and found the inn. It practically is situated in the middle of town, within walking distance of the...

Our overnight at the Clipper House was delightful from start to finish! It was a pleasure meeting Barbara and Jerry and getting a tour and wine tasting at their fabulous on site winery (don't miss the Peach Chardonnay or the Chocolate Raspberry Port!!) Our cottage was beautiful and comfortable and just a few blocks from the famous Kemah Boardwalk. Easy...

Barbra was very pleasent to reserve with. We did not have a hotel room or place to stay the night when we came to town. The hotels in Kemah can be costly and booked up at this time of year. We finally found a place with an open room for the night and it was with The Clipper House Inn....

My only regret is that we only had one night to stay in this charming respite from the busy life! Barbara Hopper is a superb innkeeper and hostess. We felt like we were honored guests in her home. Our cottage was immaculate, cozy and very comfortable. A special bottle of wine, glasses and a yummy cake awaited us. Every need...

The Clipper House is an incredible place to stay! Nostalgic yet functional rooms, outstanding restaurant (Clear Creek Restaurant), and winery...all topped off by the graciousness of the owners/operators...can't say enough good things. We will be back!
