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!


Perfect stay

Perfect balance of feeling pampered and respecting privacy! Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Owners couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast was fantastic every morning. This was our first trip to Ouray and looking forward to returning- won't consider staying anywhere else!

We stayed here in mid February 2016. It is an awesome B&B. The owners are very nice and provide some of the best breakfasts I've ever had at a B&B. We ice climbed and would fill up on the wonderful breakfast so we could skip lunch. Wonderful place and we have full intentions of ruturning!


Perfect spot
