Why Stay Anywhere else?

A totally wonderful experience on all counts. Ingrid is a five star innkeeper. Her associate Amanda makes breakfast truly delicious. Meeting other guests who have returned time and time again should give you all you need to know. Book your next stay in Ouray with Ingrid and rest knowing your stay will exceed your expectations.


Exquisite B & B in Ouray

3.8 on October 12, 2017

We stayed in the "Golden West" room, a large ground floor suite which is well-suited for anyone with mobility issues - in our case, it saved having to carry luggage up 1 or 2 flights of stairs. The main floor of the inn IS up a flight of stairs, and from our room, it was necessary to go outside. This small inconvenience was hardly a problem, especially given the fantastic breakfast (2 days!) and warm hospitality. The inn was built by a retired navy commander, and filled with items collected by him on his travels in the Far East and elsewhere. All the common rooms are simply exquisite in decor and interesting details. There is also a hot tub (outside). Great location on a quiet side street, but walking distance to the main street.


Exceeded expectations, we'll return.

Nice place

The breakfast was good, but the food was not kept hot! Cold eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes etc. This must be addressed before we go back! Everything else about our stay was great!!

Great Stay in Ouray

5 on September 09, 2017

Ingrid did a great job of welcoming us and making the stay enjoyable. The breakfast was outstanding. Her recommendation for dinner at Brickhouse 737 turned out to be the best meal on our trip. Would definitely come back again and recommend to others.


Home away from home

5 on September 09, 2017

The China Clipper Inn made us feel like coming home to family. We enjoyed the quiet getaway and the cleanliness of our room. Even though we had a long drive home we did not want to miss our last breakfast and home made muffin. We will definitey be back.
