A lovely and friendly place

5 on August 26, 2015

Ingrid and Hans (from Holland, where my ancestors are from) are friendly, thoughtful, and warm hosts. The place is beautiful, the rooms are warm and nicely decorated, and their breakfasts are wonderful. Highly recommended!


Excellent one-night stay

4.0 on August 23, 2015

My husband and I stayed just one night but found the Inn just delightful. We were met with great muffins at check-in. Got good advice on sights to see (we did the hike of Box Canyon Falls and visited the hot springs). And enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Probably best of all is the quietness -- rooms seemed completely soundproof as we never hear a peep from any other guests.

Hans and Ingrid were wonderful hosts. They are very personable and really know the area and will suggest fun and interesting things to do.


Outstanding!

Hans and Ingrid are very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was a real treat with homemade treats served in a pleasant environment. Located off of "Main Street" (less hustle and bustle) but very convenient. Will stay there again if ever back in Ouray.


Can't wait to go back!

A Real Gem

Just returned from a lovely trip, staying at the China Clipper. Ingrid and Hans are wonderful hosts. Breakfast is different each morning including eggs, meat, fruit, juice, pancakes or another starch and the best homemade muffins (leftover muffins are available all day). The hosts give you a nice tour of the amenities and then stay out of your way. They don't live on site but live nearby (since they have a small child) but are only a phone call away. Nice to come back from a busy day and relax with a cup of hot tea and a muffin on the porch. I will be back!!!!


Best B&B in Ouray

4.8 on July 06, 2015

Beautiful house!! Ingrid and Hans are great hosts. The breakfast is the best we ever had at a B&B; homemade muffins everyday, a huge bowl full of fresh fruits such as strawberries, apples,grapes, also the lightest and best tasting pancakes we have ever had. Very nice couple from Holland and the BEST B&B we have ever stayed in. Would return.!!!


The China Clipper Experience

You cannot go wrong staying at China Clipper! Hans and Ingrid, the inkeepers, make you feel right at home. The food and accommodations are wonderful! Go!


Not just a place to sleep and have breakfast

5 on June 07, 2015

Staying at the China Clipper is like staying with family friends. Hans and Ingrid make everyone feel so at home, not just at the Inn, but also in the town in general. The rooms are elegant but still comfortable and always clean. And breakfast is always tasty and satisfying, especially if you are planning on doing a lot of walking in town or on the many mountain trails accessible from Ouray. This was our second stay with them and we look forward to our third.


Comfortable, Mellow, Beautiful

5 on June 04, 2015

Tremendously mellow way to visit Ouray. Long time resident/owners Hans and Ingrid offer as much input as you want regarding things to do or just stay out of your way. Breakfasts were over the top great and reading on the front porch in a light rain or with the sun filtering through the Aspens filled mellow breaks between hikes and visits to the hot springs.
