“The perfect Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Great location, cottages are beautiful, service superior! The inner keeper is so nice and outgoing she makes you feel right at home. There is not one thing left undone from the roses, bubble bath, personal wine bottle to the chocolate cake. The fruit basket and homemade break is awesome, you will love your stay so much you will not want to leave!!!

My Title pretty much says it all. Barbara & her husband Jerry were the nicest, most accomidating people I have run in to in quite some time. There are a lot of people that could learn from these fine folks. From the moment we arrived they couldnt have been more helpful and wanted to make sure everything was perfect. We stayed in The Flying Cloud cottage which was just as advertised, and comfortable, and like home away from home. Walking distance from the Boardwalk and the Lighthouse District (shopping and dining). The music from the Restaurant/Bar next door (Go-N-Loco) was an added bonus for us because they were playing 80's music the whole night (until 11 Sat. Night), from R&B to Classic Rock to Country. We even found ourselves dancing on the back/front porch. This is a must stay when in Kemah and look forward to coming again. Thanks again Barbara & Jerry

My wife and I stayed at the Clipper House for our 20th wedding anniversary weekend - lived in LaPorte in the early 90s then moved away. We hadn't seen the area in 18 years. Wow! What a transformation Kemah has undergone. You have to see it. And if you do, stay at the Clipper House. The Mont Blanc was quaint and perfect for us. We loved the separate cottage concept. Barbara is very sweet and accommodating - even gave us a bottle of wine with a special note acknowledging our anniversary. The special attention was really sweet. The property is very nice. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed in the romance cottage for our 5th anniversary. We had the best time. It was just what Barbara said it was and perfect for our weekend. It is located within walking distance to shops restaurants and the boardwalk. I will definitely be going back to this little wonderful inn. Anybody looking to go to kemah stay here and not a hotel. You will not regret it. Thanks Barbara for a wonderful weekend!

My best friend and I stayed the weekend in The Romance Cottage. The room was lovely, clean, and spacious. The bed was The inn keepers are very nice and accommodating. The huge shower with multiple sprayers was great. Walking distance from the Boardwalk and the Lighthouse District (shopping and dining). The winery, tasting room, and winery resturant, Tabella, are all about 10 yards away. T-Bone Toms is about 20 yards. Even though the place is right in the middle of everything, we felt as though we were in the country. Very relaxing. We plan on visiting again and taking our husbands for a couples weekend.

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...
