Superb Sailing in Soverign of the Seas

4.6 on June 15, 2016

From the moment we stepped through the front door, Ingrid was very welcoming and friendly. Ingrid was also helpful on dining recommendations and hiking trails. We spent three relaxing days and every breakfast was wonderful. Ouray is a nice town with a variety of activities for everyone.

Wonderful bed and breakfast


Relaxing get-a-way!

One can do as much or as little as desired in this wonderful little mountain town. Just relax, breathe, and enjoy the surroundings! You can walk anywhere in town. The China Clipper Inn is perfectly located to do just that, and in a very quiet atmosphere. The breakfast is awesome and might even allow you to skip lunch. We stayed in the Captains Quarters, which is quite large and has a private balcony with a wonderful mountain view. Pam and Jeremy made our stay very enjoyable. I'm ready to go back.


Extremely friendly hosts and a must eat breakfast.

Best Kept Secret in Ouray!

5 on March 24, 2016

When you don't really want to leave...that is how we felt after staying at the "China Clipper Inn" Bed & Breakfast in Ouray! The BEST kept secret in Ouray, in our opinion! We LOVED the place! So, we have to brag just a little bit about this B&B... We were looking for a luxurious place to relax and enjoy our 20th anniversary, with a fireplace and jacuzzi (or whirlpool) in our room, and this was the place! It was our FIRST time at a bed & breakfast and we were delighted with our room, the food and the AMBIENCE! This place is lovely, elegant, charming and quiet...can't say enough about their homemade breakfasts, all made from scratch, absolutely DELICIOUS! If only we could eat like that every morning...we could get use to that! And of course, the mountain scenery all around in Ouray is beautiful and majestic! So, if you're ever in the area and want to stay the night, THIS IS THE PLACE to unpack; Ingrid and Hans are fantastic Innkeepers!
