Clipper House Inn is a small "Eden". Beautiful, relaxing, within walking distance of Boardwalk and very friendly and accommodating host and hostess. Thanks so much for everything Barbara and Jerry. The Winery was 'intoxicating'. Thanks Dee for putting up with the 'crazy cajuns'. Don't leave the winery without at least one bottle of their wine. There are so many to choose from, you will probably do what I did and leave with two. The Winery restaurant is 'delicious dining' with a cozy atmosphere. Thanks Kyle for taking excellent care of us. We will be back to try another cottage; although the "Flying Cloud" was awesome.

We spent two weeks in the Cutty Sark in November 2012. It suited us very well as we were in Texas to visit family, who could not accommodate us. The Cutty Sark had everything we needed for a two week stay, including a very comfortable bed. It is sited well away from the traffic in a peaceful area less than ten minutes walk from The Boardwalk. There is a Target, and other stores, less than ten minutes away, on foot and Barbara and Jerry, the Innkeepers, were very welcoming and hospitable. There is a very pleasant garden area with seats and a pool in the complex of 1930s cottages. If we get back to that area of Texas I would have no hesitation in returning to The Clipper House Inn.

Room Tip: The Cutty Sark has a kitchen with oven and fridge, which made us choose it over the other cottages...

I'm not a bed and breakfast kind of girl but this place is just wonderful. Barbara decorated the room with a mini Christmas tree that just delighted my two year old. The location is just perfect - very near the Boardwalk with easy access to the main road. I would love to make this place an after Thanksgiving tradition. There is a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker as well as utensils and plates in the cabinet! Very well thought out and welcoming :)

We really enjoyed our weekend stay here. The accomodations were excellent, but the personal attention we received from Barbara and Jerry was exceptional. Made us feel very welcomed and appreciated. I would highly recommend the Clipper House Inn. We will definitely be back! Thanks Barbara for the informative wine tour and recommendations. I can't wait to make my blackberry bread.

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 cared for, when we left it was like saying goodbye to life long friends! We enjoyed visiting the Clear Creek Winery where Coco really puts on a great breakfast. She went out of her way to welcome us and show us how wonderful the winery really is. We plan on returning again for his birthday, and I'm sure it will remain one of our favorite spots in the future.

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 palm trees and plants. Barbara the inn-keeper made us feel welcome and took us to the winery on the grounds to enjoy a complimentary wine-tasting and cheese tray. Good selection of wines. Just a few minutes walk to the Kemah Boardwalk to enjoy the views of the bay, and plenty of restaurant selections. My wife and I are looking to come back again, and she wants to bring her college girlfriends here for a girls-out weekend. Overall a very pleasant exerience.
