We stayed for three nights and it was wonderful. The room was great and the breakfasts were delicious. This was our third stay there. The best place.

Imogene race hotel

The B and B was immaculate and the owner was lovely and helpful. I was running imogene and the start was 2 blocks away. I recommend this property

A gem in a gem of a small town

5 am September 10, 2018

Beautiful and quiet B&B, walking distance to everything, great breakfast, friendly staff and spacious room. The only bad thing about our experience was we didn't stay long enough. If or when we return to our new favorite small town we will definitely stay at China Clipper Inn!!

Don't Miss the China Clipper Inn when in Ouray, CO!!

5 am September 05, 2018

This was our second visit this year. We will never stay anywhere else in Ouray. Ingrid and David are delightful people and the breakfast was to die for... not to mention the daily muffins.

Ouray China Clipper - the best!

5 am September 02, 2018

My husband and I's favorite getaway. Best room! Excellent service and breakfast!

Great location

4,6 am September 01, 2018

One block off the Main Street, so it was very quiet. Owners were very friendly.

Anniversary trip

5 am August 30, 2018

This is an excellent B&B. Well managed, excellent food, great service, clean, easily accessible (easiest entrance is through the alley as the parking lot is on the main level), and an easy walk to the main street. We stayed two nights and plan on staying there again. Ingrid was an outstanding host.

Excellent hostess

3,8 am August 29, 2018

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while in Ouray. Ingrid was very accommodating and served an excellent breakfast each morning. Almost everything in town was within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect place!

5 am August 27, 2018

This is a wonderful place to stay in Ouray! Perfection location and zinged was so helpful with local hikes and the area. The breakfast was excellent. Peach and white chocolate muffins- unbelievable. We will definitely return

2nd Stay at the China Clipper

5 am August 23, 2018

Second time we stayed at this B & B - it was wonderful! Staff was great - David at the front desk was so accommodating, Ingrid was so very hospitable and breakfast was great every every day. It was quiet and warming - we will be back again!! Stephanie B.

Mountain Getaway

5 am August 21, 2018

We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing stay!

Anniversary trip

5 am August 19, 2018

This B&B is a gem. Ingrid, the owner, is an excellent host who maintains a quality establishment. The B&B is easy to find and provides parking in front and back. It is more easily accessed from the rear of the building as it is on the same level as the office entrance. The rooms are immaculate. We stayed on the first floor in a room with a queen bed and a private bath. The food was outstanding. Well prepared with an variety for breakfast. There are muffins available at the front desk during the evening (if they haven't been eaten as they were great). The dining area is comfortable with a large table in one room and three two-person tables on the porch. Tea is available at all hours. Ingrid knows the surrounding area well and provided useful information on where to visit. We will definitely stay at the China Clipper again. Thanks, Ingrid, for your hospitality.

Absolute best in Ouray.

5 am August 18, 2018

This was our 8th year in a row to stay here. Ingrid is an outstanding owner / hostess. I love relaxing on the front porch with a book when not enjoying the beautiful surrounding mountains. While located on a quiet, leafy street this B&B is only half a block away from the center of charming Ouray. We choose a room on the South side or the front of the building which has more natural light. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in this mountain town !

Beautiful B&B

5 am August 17, 2018

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this immaculate B&B with it's beautiful decor and grounds. Ingrid and her staff were very accommodating and friendly, and the breakfasts were delicious!

A Wonderful Experience

5 am August 15, 2018

We stayed 3 nights in the China Clipper Inn in early August. Host and staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were prepared well and tasty. Room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The hot tub was very nice after a long hike and the front porch was so nice to sit on in the evening. The CCI is in a great location one block from the main street and many dining locations. We will definitely be back.

nostalgic return

4,6 am August 12, 2018

I returned from a stay seven years ago when my family and parents (who are no longer alive) surprised me for my 60th birthday. Sweet memories and better than I even remembered

Loyal Guest to China Clipper

5 am August 10, 2018

This is a luxury accommodation with a spectacular breakfast. Your hosts, Ingrid and Hans, are attentive to detail. They also own and operate a five-star restaurant in Ouray, Brickhouse 737.

Great 3 night stay

5 am August 10, 2018

David was great and the muffins were stellar!

Wonderful stay in the Colorado mountains!

5 am August 10, 2018

We were so happy with our stay at China Clipper Inn! The staff were super friendly and helpful, especially Nicole, David, and Ingrid, the owner. Breakfast was yummy each day and the coffee was outstanding! We stayed in the Golden West suite which is like a one bedroom apartment on the first floor. It had its own porch and we really enjoyed sitting out and enjoying the cool breezes, wonderful mountain views, and aspen and pine trees surrounding the property. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Ouray!

Favorite Place to Stay in Ouray

5 am August 09, 2018

I absolutely love this hotel. The First Mates room is wonderful and its oversized tub is the perfect place to relax after a hike. The common areas of the inn and front porch are a pleasure. Will always stay here when in town. I left too early to have breakfast but they let me make some toast and tea as they were doing early prep in the kitchen.


5 am August 08, 2018

We could not have been more pleased. Quiet, charming architecture, gracious host/owner Ingrid, and a short walk from the main street and its restaurants. Ouray is a special place with towering mountains and small town charm.

A delightful respite

5 am August 07, 2018

Over the years, we have stayed in all of the best places that Ouray has to offer. This was our first stay at China Clipper. China Clipper is the best value. Ingrid, the owner, is unsurpassed in how much she cares about what she does. Her breakfasts were plentiful, tasty, and accommodating to diet. Her cheerful demeanor was a very pleasant way to start the day. The hot tub in the back was a very nice way to relax. We stayed in the room "Sea Witch". It was roomy, nice, comfortable, clean, firm bed, large bathtub w/ shower. We look forward to our next visit to Ouray at the China Clipper. -Jim and Donna

We are repeat customers because the China Clipper constantly provides a great place to stay, amazing breakfast, and incredible hospitality.

Pickett Review

5 am August 01, 2018

Outstanding reception on the first day, especially the freshly baked muffins. We greatly enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness of the room. In fact, the entire facility was spotless. The breakfast was made with fresh ingredients every morning and the hostess was friendly and charming. We highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Ouray, CO.

The Place to Stay!

5 am Juli 29, 2018

We had the best time over 4th of July! We stayed for 5 nights in a premium room. It was comfortable and very, very clean. Ingrid, the owner, is fabulous. The rest of her staff very friendly and kind as well...shout out to David! They go out of their way to make sure your stay is wonderful in every way. Breakfast is to die for, muffins are out of this world. We are missing them already. They keep a supply of freshly baked muffins at the front desk all day and I really had a hard time resisting them and sometimes couldn't. I think I gained 3 lbs even with all the hiking we did. Other breakfast items included fresh fruit, eggs or quiche, a meat item for the "meatlovers", fresh juices, coffee, tea, cereal/ granola/ yogurt area, muffins(yum!!!), and sometimes blueberry pancakes which were fabulous. Ingrid is great about giving suggestions for dinner, things to do in town and is truly interested in getting to know you. We had to miss breakfast for a big hike and she made sure we were all set with muffins and fruit the night before. 4th of July is a great time in Ouray- do not miss the parades (yes, more than 1). Parking for the Inn can be found in front or back. We did not have any trouble although we walked most places once there as it is one block off Main Street- a perfect location. Be sure to visit Brickhouse (her husband's restaurant) - delicious food and best margaritas ever!!!!! Cons: Wifi is spotty but not impossible- be patient, TV- just a few channels but again you are not in Ouray to watch TV, get out and walk around and enjoy the beautiful views and the wonderful smelling air. Make your reservation ASAP! You will love this place! We miss you already- Tyler and Kathryn (from Texas) and will be back!

Andy & Gail’s stay in Ouray

5 am Juli 26, 2018

We want to come back!


5 am Juli 25, 2018

Delightful, charming, pristine, quiet, close to everything, wonderful mountain view, very beautifully decorated and appointed. The largest, most beautiful bathroom we've ever had in any rooms we've stayed in - it even had double sinks and a separate potty room. Delicious breakfast and Ingrid was a very charming, helpful host. Absolutely wonderful place to stay!!!!!

Fabulous stay at the lovely China Clipper Inn!

5 am Juli 24, 2018

We loved our stay at the beautiful China Clipper Inn. Everything was top notch. we were welcomed by the friendly owner. Our rooms beautifully decorated and clean. Bedding scrumptious! Morning breakfast outstanding! Close to all the fun in downtown Ouray. Loved our stay!

Great Escape

4,6 am Juli 19, 2018

Enjoyed our stay. The staff was excellent and the food was great.

Great B and B!

5 am Juli 16, 2018

Wonderful stay. Loved our spacious room. Fine linens, great breakfast! Close proximity to down town Ouray. We'd stay there again in future!

Summer Getaway

4,2 am Juli 05, 2018

Lovely bed and breakfast. A little disappointed in the breakfast. We actually chose this particular B & B based on the breakfast reviews. There were scrambled eggs and either bacon, sausage or ham each morning. Which is certainly adequate - we were just expecting more based on the posted reviews. Sadly, we never met Ingrid. But all in all a lovely stay.

Ouray stay

5 am Juli 04, 2018

We had an amazing stay at the China Clipper Inn! The service was great, the room was beautiful and the food was so yummy! I would highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a nice quiet place to stay while you’re visiting this is the place to stay! It was so homey!

Great Place to Stay

5 am Juli 04, 2018

Breakfast each day was very good especially the pancakes. It was a good breakfast before hiking each day. Staff had great suggestions for things to do in the area. The rooms and the house was clean and quiet.

Quiet Stay in Ouray

5 am Juni 30, 2018

If you are looking for a quiet relaxing stay just steps from the main street in Ouray, the China Clipper is your place. We were there during a much needed rain. Nothing is more relaxing for me than sitting on the front porch in the rain. The rooms are very well appointed and clean. Robes are provided for your stay. We were greeted at check-in with a tray of homemade muffins. By homemade, I mean that fresh cherries were pitted for these muffins. Breakfast in the dining room and sun porch was bright and served with homemade pancakes, sausage, bacon, fruits, potatoes, muffins as well as yogurts and toast. We had a great dinner at the Brickhouse which we later learned is owned by the family who owns the Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was also parking in front of the Inn. We will go back for another experience at the China Clipper.

You must try this place!!!

5 am Juni 29, 2018

We could not have been happier!!! Great food and rooms are spotless!

Exceptional Place

5 am Juni 17, 2018

In all respects this Inn is a classic. Large, spacious room, quiet, convenient location, very comfortable bed, delicious breakfasts, friendly staff, gracious, helpful host. Going forward this is our place to stay when visiting Ouray. Highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed! Bob Martino Fort Collins

My favorite B and B

5 am Juni 13, 2018

The China Clipper is a gem. It's a Classic B and B without being too frou-frou. Nice linens, very clean rooms, lovely owners, amazing breakfast! We will be back, Ingrid!

Loved Our Stay!

4,8 am Juni 03, 2018

Our stay at the China Clipper was so enjoyable! Ingrid was an incredible hostess. Knowing that we would be late for check-in, we called to apologize but she told us not to worry at all and instead encouraged us to take our time and enjoy the gorgeous scenery on the drive in from Silverton. She insisted on helping us carry our bags in, gave us a tour of the beautiful B&B, and recommended an amazing place for dinner, Brickhouse 737, which was so delicious! Breakfast the next morning was equally as delicious with many different types of things to pick from, especially the raspberry-white chocolate chip muffins for which Ingrid very graciously gave me the recipe. Our room was very comfortable, very clean with great views of some of the mountain tops from our big window. We will definitely return on our next visit to Ouray. Thanks so much, Ingrid. Good luck in your mountain run/race!

Great room and breakfast

4,8 am Mai 18, 2018

My wife and I stayed the night of May 14, 2018. The house is beautifully decorated and spacious. Ingrid, our hostess, was gracious and accommodating. She even carried our luggage upstairs since I had a bad back. She prepared a terrific breakfast of coffee, orange juice, a bowl of fresh fruit (various berries and melons) and eggs Benedict with asparagus It was more than my wife could eat, but I managed to clean my plate. The price was very reasonable too. We highly recommend staying at the China Clipper Inn.

Homemade Heaven

5 am April 24, 2018

This Inn's host and owner was the epitome of historic hospitality, a world of cooking skill, wonderful congeniality, and empathy beyond reproach. This Inn represented an honest reflection of the true Bed and Breakfast ideal. The owners embraced everyone's uniqueness, went beyond assistance and met everyone with an open heart and loving embrace. When my mother was diagnosed with a lung disease the day before her trip (a trip to remember her life here in the Colorado Rockies) the owner had her moved to a room beside me so I could take better care of her and when it was clear the altitude was affecting her breathing and I had to quickly return her to home for a visit to the doctor's the owners worked and even argued to not keep the last night's rent due. My heart was touched. I would have gladly given the whole stay required as it was a lovely trip with their hospitality. The food was immaculately conceived and executed. Very flexible on service and accommodated all our needs and wants. I could not have felt as good even visiting family. They were marvelous. Anyone visiting would be honored to stay under their roof.

Fantastic B&B

5 am April 19, 2018

I'm not a huge fan of B&Bs, but a friend of mine stayed here on 2 occasions and recommended it highly. I'm so glad he did. From the moment of our arrival to our departure, this was an incredible place to stay. Right after we arrived, Ingrid (the owner) greeted us outside and insisted on carrying our luggage (including one heavy piece) into the B&B and then upstairs to our room. She is amazing and incredibly friendly. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters--a premium spacious suite. My wife and I loved it. Ingrid was incredibly accommodating because I had to sleep in another room (due to my wife's snoring, which kept me awake the first night). We were there when they were not very busy, so she put me in a nearby room for very little extra cost. Ingrid also makes incredible hot breakfasts. We had Eggs Benedict our first morning and Quiche, Pancakes, and Sausage the second morning. Both mornings also included bowls of freshly cut fruit as well as yogurt. I'm not overly fond of eggs, so Ingrid gladly tailored my meals accordingly. If we ever return to Ouray, we shall absolutely stay here again.

My fiance and I had an absolutely amazing stay

5 am April 11, 2018

Never stayed at a B&B before, but this one was much more than exceptional. The owner was amazing and very helpful, and the room and breakfast in the morning was much more than outstanding. I highly recommend this place.

Outstanding place! Breakfast and room was amazing

5 am April 08, 2018

Place was AMAZING. Breakfast and rio. Was outstanding. I will definitely return

Absolutely WONDERFUL!

5 am März 21, 2018

My 17 year old daughter and I went away for a weekend to Ouray, CO. Staying at the China Clipper Inn was the most wonderful, relaxing getaway. Ingrid, the owner, is amazing! The breakfast was incredible. The Inn is beautiful, elegant, clean, inviting, and simply perfect. I highly recommend this place to EVERYONE.

A magical weekend in Ouray

5 am Februar 27, 2018

We stayed two nights at the charming China Clipper Inn after a week at a luxury Mountain Village hotel in Telluride. Mountain Village was certainly fancy, but looking back it felt sterile and corporatized in comparison to our experience at the China Clipper. Co-owner Ingrid greeted us personally at check-in and gave us perfect advice on what to do and where to go in Ouray during ourvisit - and she should know since she lives in the community year-round. Our rooms were perfectly clean and well-appointed, and they kept the paths to the front door AND the backyard hot tub shoveled during the 18-inch blizzard we got on night #2. And then there was the food. This was no light continental breakfast. Ingrid personally prepared sumptuous and frankly extravagant breakfasts both mornings complete with fresh cut fruit salads, gourmet muffins, bacon, quiches, cereals, coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, etc. By far this was our best B&B experience ever, and we will definitely be back!

Lovely B&B

5 am Februar 24, 2018

It's a lovely house with a nice outdoor hot tub and friendly hosts

An amazing place!

5 am Februar 23, 2018

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and loved it! The China Clipped is absolutely beautiful! Ingred is sweet, friendly and a great cook! Everything was clean and had a feel of home. We will definitely go back!


5 am Februar 21, 2018

We stayed here for our anniversary and Ingrid was absolutely amazing! She was so friendly and made us feel right at home. Our room was a private street entrance so that was a plus, it was beautifully decorated and spotless! Would absolutely stay here again! PS Ingrid’s muffins alone are worth the stay and her breakfast was phenomenal!

Lovely experience

4,6 am Februar 20, 2018

Hostess was wonderful and most accommodating. Rooms and common areas were very, very nice. Homemade breakfast was excellent each day. Beautiful town, beautiful B&B had a lovely vacation.

Loved it!

5 am Januar 26, 2018

Great place to stay. Breakfast was delicious. Awesome muffins. Ingrid was very helpful and keeps the place spotless. Well worth it!!

Wonderful place to stay in Ouray

4,0 am Januar 24, 2018

Beautiful property, great location, wonderful host and AMAZING breakfast.

Amazing stay in a beautiful house

5 am Januar 18, 2018

Our stay here was honestly the best stay I've ever had in an accommodation. Ingrid was a marvelous host, flexible, kind, friendly, and am amazing cook. The breakfasts in the morning were of higher quality than you would find at restaurants. Next time I come through Ouray I'll be stay at the China Clipper no questions about it.

Best option in Ouray

4,8 am Januar 13, 2018

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Inn. The rooms are huge, comfortable beds, choice of pillow types, the breakfast and amenities exceeded expectations and the hosts were very focused on making our stay memorable.

Wonderful New Years Stay

5 am Januar 06, 2018

We brought in the New Year at China Clipper. Very enjoyable and the hostess was amazing - thorough and supportive and with great advice. Great stay.

Christmas at the Clipper

5 am Januar 02, 2018

This was a perfect place to stay for a week in Ouray. It was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The location was perfect for ice climbing, snowshoeing, skiing, and restaurants/shopping. The hostess was easy to communicate with and check in was a breeze. Breakfast was perfect! Wish we could have stayed longer! I highly recommend it!

Absolutely Amazing!

5 am Januar 01, 2018

The room was perfect, excellent people who own and take care of this place you can tell they definitely care about making your stay great. I wished we could have stayed longer. Extremely clean, nice comfy bed. The only thing I didn’t care for was the pillows but everything else made up for it by far. Ingrid also made some great suggestions for us during our stay. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 am Dezember 31, 2017

I wish we have had time to stay a few more days. The place is very clean, comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. The enclosed porch dining area has a nice view. The owner gave us a great suggestion for where to eat dinner and a few places around town to check out. This was my first trip to Ouray and I will definitely be going back and staying at China Clipper.

Why Would Anyone Stay on Main Street?

5 am Dezember 29, 2017

The China Clipper is just a block off the main street - actually, not even a block and it must be the best kept secret of Ouray! Very quiet and warm and the breakfast that Ingrid prepared was absolutely fantastic. Even my wife, a non-breakfast eater, says it was one of the best meal experiences of our ten day trip. Thanks Hans and Ingrid!

A Cool October Day

4,2 am Dezember 11, 2017

We were surprised to find the Inn nearly full on an October weekend. Breakfast was excellent and the sitting room very comfortable. The hot tub was an added bonus.

Romantic stay

4,4 am November 28, 2017

We appreciated the wonderful fall hospitality to cap off our beautiful November wedding in Ouray. Host was so nice and the home is beautiful.


5 am November 04, 2017

It was my first stay at a B&B AND IT WAS AN EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE.

Outstanding accommodation

4,0 am Oktober 23, 2017

A delightful guest house with a very warm and friendly hostess, who managed our stay extremely well.

Ouray China Clipper

4,2 am Oktober 19, 2017

Highly recommended. Convenient location, beatuiful views, outstanding breakfast, free muffins all day, friendly owners and staff.

Awesome and Incredible Stay

5 am Oktober 17, 2017

That title pretty much sums up my stay at the China Clipper Inn. From the moment I checked in until I left three day later I felt totally at home and at ease. Pam...the hostess at breakfast....which by the way was superb....was so nice. I was attending a geological "field" conference, which of course meant early starts....hiking and then evening functions. A couple of times our meetings met early, before breakfast so we could hit the road...I would go to the dining room for coffee and then Pam would load me up with homemade muffins and goods to make sure I had something for breakfast. I was the envy of the rest of rest of the crowd. They will spoil you at this place. It's quite and relaxing....very comfortable and the people staying there were all friendly. Great Place!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why Stay Anywhere else?

5 am Oktober 13, 2017

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 am Oktober 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.

5 am Oktober 09, 2017

We had a wonderful stay, relaxed and far exceeded expectations.

China Clipper Inn Fabulous!

5 am Oktober 08, 2017

China Clipper Inn was absolutely the perfect B & B. Would highly recommend it. Ingrid was the perfect hostess. Made us feel right at home and gave us lots of local info. Rooms were clean and comfy and food was fabulous. Thanks Ingrid!!

Beautiful Ouray CO What a place

5 am Oktober 06, 2017

This was a fantastic B&B in a beautiful little town. The owners were wonderful, so very kind and helpful and have a truly delightful property! I have stayed here before and I will stay here again. The place is gorgeous,, the rooms quiet, the food fantastic. OK Enough adjectives but do stay here! JP

Ouray B&B

4,8 am Oktober 04, 2017

The staff was very accommodating for my dietary restrictions. The room was very clean and comfortable. I would stay at the China Clipper Inn on my next visit to Ouray.

A Pleasant Experience

3,2 am September 12, 2017

We definitely enjoyed our stay. The furnishings were a little 90's but met the classic style of this B&B. The bathtub was fun. The food was very good. The people were very nice and accommodating.

Nice place

4,4 am September 11, 2017

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!!

19th Weeding anniversary in style and great views.

5 am September 10, 2017

The staff was excellent location and breakfast above par and great room.

Great Stay in Ouray

5 am 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 am 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.

Worth the stay in every way!

5 am September 06, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the inn thanks to Ingrid and Pam and all the staff making it such a delightful experience. Our room and the entire inn is cozy and comfortable. The homemade breakfasts are worth the stay alone. Muffins every morning, fresh peach, raspberry white chocolate...fresh fruit, bacon and scrambled eggs, vegetarian egg dish, oven roasted potatoes, blueberry pancakes, cherry baked ham. What a wonderful way to greet the mornings, and you can eat at the communal dining table or in a quiet corner in the attached sunroom. This is THE place to stay in beautiful Ouray! Thank you, Ingrid and Pam. We'll be back. Jim and Jo Ann

Stellar Property

4,0 am August 29, 2017

China Clipper meets all expectations for an upscale property. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, pleasant garden area with a hot tub, in an excellent location. Ingrid and Pam are very welcoming and knowledgable about the area.

Sea Witch room

5 am August 23, 2017

Our hosts were very friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The room was spacious and clean. The food was superb. And the location was centrally located and within walking distance to all the important sites in Ouray.

Highly recommended

5 am August 22, 2017

The China Clipper was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Colorado. We greatly enjoyed our stay! Ingrid (the owner) was delightful as was the room and food. We will surely be staying there on our next visit to Ouray!

Simply amazing and extremely charming

5 am August 21, 2017

This past weekend my boyfriend and I stayed at this quaint bed and breakfast. From the time we checked in, until our departure Pam made sure to provide attention to every detail of our stay. We chose to turn in early during our stay and it was quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. We had round-the-clock fresh baked muffins and truly amazing peach pancakes among other items for our huge breakfast feast. . Her homemade breakfast was unbeatable. If you want the feel of home, service as if you're a long time friend and not a guest, as well as some fabulous home cooking in a beautiful setting for a great price, look no further. It was such a special memory for Vince and I. Thank you Pam. Much love. We can't wait to come back! Vince and Heidi

Beautiful house, immaculate, delightful innkeeper

4,8 am August 18, 2017

The China Clipper Inn is a beautiful welcoming inn of first rate quality. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Pricey but worth it!

4,6 am August 10, 2017

While being on the pricey side, the China Clipper is well worth it. Clean fancy rooms, very friendly & helpful proprietors, excellent breakfasts, great location in a scenic mountain town. (It is actually well hidden now by trees that have grown up since the wintry wide-open photo of it when it was new.)

charming getaway

5 am August 09, 2017

This B&B is a Victorian house with plenty of charm. Each room has its own bathroom, which is a plus. The gathering rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The dining area for breakfast has a large dining table and an attached sunroom with bistro tables for two. The breakfast was high quality and delicious, with something for everyone; fruit, juice, eggs, bacon, potatoes, all made on site in the kitchen next to the dining area. The owner/manager is very friendly and helpful, she gave us many recommendations and up to date information about the area.

Wonderful Stay at China Clipper Inn!

5 am August 08, 2017

Already reviewed

5 am Juli 27, 2017

I had already reviewed it -- this was mine -- We stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate an anniversary. We had an extraordinary time. The room was so beautiful and comfortable. Ingrid and the staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you find wonderful things to do during the day. The daily breakfast was so good and muffins from breakfast available all day -- think of dark chocolate cherry muffins at your beck and call! The location is just off of the main street with so much dining and shopping just feet away. We would highly recommend it.

A Treasure in the Mountains!

5 am Juli 27, 2017

We've stayed here twice , and have truly enjoyed this beautifully decorated B&B. Staff is helpful, warm and welcoming. Homemade breakfast was delicious. Perfect location in Ouray to get to restaurants , hiking trails, shopping and the spring-fed pools. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area!

Wonderful accommodations and staff

4,6 am Juli 25, 2017

This is a hidden gem in the tiny town of Ouray and we loved every minute staying there. The folks who run this inn couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Be sure to ask if your room is upstairs or down if you have any trouble walking or carrying your luggage upstairs. There are rooms available on both floors so no problem. Good food, great location and very nice people. Enjoy! We would return any time.

Everything was wonderful

5 am Juli 24, 2017

The room and bathroom were even nicer than we had envisioned, food was delicious and service was excellent. The location was convenient to town and hiking, and it was quiet. Highly recommend.

This is the BEST place to rest, relax and EAT

5 am Juli 20, 2017

Bill and I enjoyed our stay so much that we are returning the first of October. We added a couple of days to our trip to California just so we could enjoy the fall colors in total comfort at the China Clipper. Pam's breakfasts are to die for! We will se you in October!

Beautiful B&B

4,8 am Juli 15, 2017

China clipper

5 am Juli 09, 2017

The China Clipper Inn is a diamond in the rough. Walking up the front stairs makes you feel welcome and home. Ingrid goes above and beyond to make your stay the best. The place is absolutely clean and fresh. Comfort is at the highest from sitting in the parlor, common area, porch or breakfast area. The rooms are clean and very comfortable after a long ride , run , hike , bike the bed just begs to be laid in and has all the comforts of home.

Our Favorite Place

4,4 am Juli 03, 2017

Ouray is one of our yearly destinations and the China Clipper Inn has become our " go to" place to stay. Great hospitality and great breakfast!

Beautiful home in a beautiful location!

5 am Juni 28, 2017

The China Clipper Inn was as wonderful as the pictures showed. We stayed in the First Mates quarters. It was very spacious, clean, and had a beautiful bay window to sit by and have your morning coffee. Ingrid was a gracious host, and an even better cook. I'm quite sure my muffins will not ever come close to the ones she had waiting for us every day of our stay. This was our 'splurge' stop on our road trip in Colorado, and it was absolutely worth it!

Went here for a Codger birthday

5 am Juni 24, 2017

My wife and I stayed at the China Clipper for my 60th birthday. All expectations were surpassed by the staff and our outrageous room. You would be crazy to look any further for a B&B in Ouray as this place cannot be topped. Thanks again Ingrid,Pam and Jeremy for a super stay.

Great location and outstanding property and service. Ingrid was a delight and we would highly recommend . We will be back!

5 am Juni 21, 2017

Beautiful well appointed property in walking distance to main town center. Great owners, comfy rooms, well run B&B. Highly recommend !

A gem!!!!

5 am Juni 21, 2017

Don't let the name fool you. Wish we had stayed here two nights in stead of just one. Ingrid was a wonderful host. If we ever get back to Ouray we will definitely stay here. One short block on the main street and a lot of great restaurants within walking distance.

Wonderful B&B

5 am Juni 08, 2017

Quiet room, perfect host, great location, wonderful breakfast each morning, reasonable price. What's not to like? I would definitely stay there again.

Go to accommodations in Ouray

4,6 am Juni 04, 2017

Second stay at the China Clipper Inn, loved it as much as the first! This adorable and comfortable B&B is right in the middle of town with access to everything you'd need during your visit. Excellent customer service and my favorite part is the delicious breakfast included with the accommodation. Only feedback is that the plumbing in the shower should be looked at as the handle can be rotated 360 degrees making it confusing to find the right temperature. Other than that, the stay was perfect.

Mom and daughter get away.

5 am Mai 14, 2017

Owner was gracious. We enjoyed our stay.

Perfect getaway and value

5 am Mai 10, 2017

The china Clipper offers the best price for the quality of the entire experience. Guests are guaranteed to receive personal attention and care. The breakfast served is better than what hotels serve, and probably better than most restaurants! The food is creative and gourmet and served with joy and love. The owners love people, and they LOVE what they do, and it shows! Staying at the china Clipper is beyond being well worth every penny. I have stayed with them multiple times and can say they also thrive in consistency of quality, which is rare find these days. -a huge thanks to them --highly recommended!

Awesome Visit

5 am April 24, 2017

Alex and Brian's Stay

5 am März 14, 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed at the China Clipper Inn on a whim and really enjoyed the bed and breakfast. Pam and Jeremy were lovely and provided us with everything we needed. Our room was the perfect size, right next to the hot tub. Breakfast was delicious and prepared to our satisfaction. If you travel through Ouray, the China Clipper Inn is the best place to stay. We will certainly be back!

Wow and more

5 am März 06, 2017

Absolutely fantastic B & B experience .... anything less than a 5 rating would be a miscarriage. Well done and thank you Ingrid.

Exceptional and Lovely!

The perfect, quaint atmosphere we were hoping for! Clean, beautiful, quiet, friendly service and yummy food! Thank you for a special time!

Memorable Experience

4,8 am Januar 23, 2017

I wanted to show Ouray to an out of country guest and China Clipper Inn immediately came to mind. The Inn is gorgeous with all the beautiful dark wood, classically appointed rooms and very friendly staff! This was my third time staying there and it was just as I expected! Cozy, comfortable and classy!

2nd year in a row & still excellent!

5 am Januar 20, 2017

We were here for New Year's last year & it was even better this year! The staff treated us like family and we felt right at home with the delicious food, peaceful accommodations and friendly atmosphere. Perfect place to experience beautiful Ouray.

Still great!

5 am Januar 10, 2017

Our 2nd annual stay and everything was still wonderful, the staff, the food, the room, the weather, the fireworks, etc. Truly a wonderful place!

Beautiful Place to Stay in Ouray

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the China Clipper for New Years and anniversary. The staff was wonderful and the room was so cozy!

Awesome experience

5 am November 17, 2016

My fiance and I were there for a 3 day weekend, I hadn't proposed yet, but the China Clipper was the perfect place for a romantic weekend. Pam and Jeremy put on a perfect experience from the great rooms to the awesome food, it was a perfect weekend. The location was in easy walking distance of downtown, box canon falls, etc..

Wonderful bed and breakfast!!

5 am Oktober 09, 2016

We stayed at the China Clipper Inn for our anniversary and it exceeded our expectations. Everyone was welcoming, the Inn was gorgeous, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend!

Great place to stay in Ouray

5 am Oktober 08, 2016

Very friendly service and delicious muffins

I really enjoyed staying here

4,6 am Oktober 07, 2016

I'm not ordinarly a bed and breakfast kind of guy, but ended up making a reservation here at the suggestion of a friend. I really liked this place. The owners are really friendly and helpful and make the experience very pleasant. It's much nicer than staying in a hotel, but if you are not into the social aspect of a bed and breakfast you can still have as much privacy as you want. There is a large communal table in the breakfast area but also a few tables for two where you can be on your own if you prefer. I liked it very much.

Delightful Accommodation & Charming Hosts!

4,6 am September 30, 2016

We arrived at China Clipper Inn after a long, arduous delay caused by a road construction accident. We were greeted warmly by Ingrid, whose tour & delicious home baked muffins made us feel instantly welcome. She was charming, energetic, and helpful in providing information about Ouray and the surrounding area. The entire inn is beautifully furnished, and our rooms were quite comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Our only regret is that our schedule did not allow a longer stay!

Wonderful Inn

5 am September 30, 2016

Great breakfast, warm staff. The location is just off the main street, walking distance to great food and a number of micro brew locations. The quality of the experience is one which we shall return again to this location.


4,8 am September 27, 2016

We stayed 3 nights and the room was lovely. There was a terrific hot tub on site to use, ample parking and a place to store our bikes. Ingrid, Pam and staff served delicious breakfasts each morning and the muffins were a great treat to have during the day. We hope to have the opportunity to stay again in the years to come.

Wonderful B and B

5 am September 26, 2016

Great place. Would definitely return. Very hospitable!

Great Lodging in Ouray

4,8 am September 23, 2016

The owners are wonderful people and totally service oriented. The breakfasts were great. The Inn is located in an ideal spot for exploring Ouray. I highly recommend the China Clipper Inn.

Two Days in Ouray

4,6 am September 23, 2016

This was our first BnB experience and it exceeded all expectations. The common areas as well as the bedroom were lovely. The breakfast choices were great and Ingrid was a wonderful host.

Beautiful Place, Beautiful People

4,0 am September 22, 2016

At Pam's request, this review is from "Dorothy" in Kansas. We recently stayed 3 nights at the China Clipper Inn and could not have asked for better service than was provided by the staff there! The facilities were very clean and well kept, and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful in regard to meeting our needs or suggesting activities! The homemade breakfast was always tasty, but in some cases could have been a little warmer. (Maybe a plate warmer would take care of this.) That being said, I can't think of any reason we would not want to make this the inn of choice when we return to Ouray in the future! We were quite pleased!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

5 am September 22, 2016

My wife and I stayed here for our first anniversary over a weekend and could not have been more pleased. The entire inn and the rooms were decorated in a Victorian style that went so together so well with the city. All the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with suggestions for dinner and hiking activities. The breakfast every morning was an amazing handcooked meal and we really enjoyed starting the day this way. Everything was clean and the room was reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again and suggest it to anyone.

Excellent overnight stay

4,4 am September 19, 2016

A very pleasant overnight stay with the host especially welcoming. Although I would prefer the wash basin to be in the en-suite, my wife and I had a good night's sleep with an excellent breakfast the following morning.

A Fantastic Getaway!

5 am September 12, 2016

We recently spent the weekend at the China Clipper Inn. What a great experience! Pam is a fantastic hostess, and she went out of her way to ensure we had an enjoyable weekend. There might be more popular places to stay in Ouray, but that's only because folks haven't experienced the China Clipper! We will be staying there the next time our travels take use through Ouray!

Great stay in Ouray

5 am September 11, 2016

We very much enjoyed our stay at the China Clipper Inn. It was so convenient to stay one block off main street in the middle of everything. We look forward to hearing more about the idea of a bed and brunch.

great hosts, great rooms and great food!

A wonderful B&B with a terrific hostess

4,2 am September 07, 2016

As return visitors we were offered a discount or an upgrade to one of the larger rooms. We were delighted to accept the larger room, which included a whirlpool bath, full shower, and large dressing area.The China Clipper is in a great location just a half-block from the shopping area but in a very quiet neighborhood.

The Clipper experience- Excellent

4,6 am September 07, 2016

B&B is beautiful and very comfortable. Owner Ingred was friendly and very helpful in suggesting places to eat and visit. Breakfast was very nice. No elevators so request ground floor room or you will be dragging your suitcases upstairs. I would absolutely stay here again on my next visit to Ouray.......

Wonderful stay!

5 am September 04, 2016

Ingrid was the perfect host in a wonderful B & B, one of the best we have stayed in over many years. We highly recommend China Clipper Inn. The room was charming, breakfast was delicious and the location perfect.

Loved the China Clipper Inn

4,8 am September 02, 2016

Our room was fantastic, and the staff was so welcoming and helpful. It was our first time to Ouray, and the staff at the China Clipper we extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations as well as hiking trails. Very pleasant staff and atmosphere. Thank you so much for a memorable stay!

Charming B&B in Ouray!

5 am August 31, 2016

My wife and I stayed at the China Clipper Inn for five nights in Sept 2014. Ingrid and Hans were so wonderful and their inn so comfortable and clean that I returned with my son for two nights in August 2016. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our rooms and slept wonderfully in our quiet rooms after long days of off-roading. Pam was a delight welcoming us, checking us in, showing us our room and the other accommodations, and telling us about Ouray. I have stayed twice now at the China Clipper Inn and will return to beautiful Ouray and the China Clipper Inn in the near future with my wife.

Precious memories

4,8 am August 27, 2016

We love our stay in Ouray and being guests at the China Clipper. The Inn was beautiful, well appointed and the perfect spot for relaxing and centering ourselves for the visit.

Excellant visit.

5 am August 17, 2016

A totally delightful stay from beginning to end. The morning breakfast and muffins was delicious and the staff's friendliness made the whole experience a pleasure.

Lovely Option for Ouray

4,2 am Juli 15, 2016

We were return guests. The rooms are nicely appointed and everything was very clean. The couple managing when we were there were very helpful, friendly and cheerful. The owners were not there as they just opened a new restaurant in town - Brockhouse 737 - which is excellent.

Weekend Getaway.

4,6 am Juli 13, 2016

We loved our stay at the China Clipper! Beautiful property with outstanding service!

A Ritz Carlton experience!

5 am Juli 13, 2016

We don't often leave comments about places we stay... We have traveled the world. We have stayed at the Ritz in Palm Beach, sailed the Paul Gaughin luxury cruise ship in Tahiti, and many others. Our experience at the China Clipper Inn was equal in accommodations and service to the finest hotels in the world. Staying here topped off our fantastic trip to the San Juan mountains in southwestern Colorado. Excellent service, attention to detail, and wonderful staff made the stay equal to our experiences at the Ritz and the Paul a far lower price. We will be back! -- Vincent and Marsha Echols

Look forward to returning

5 am Juli 12, 2016

What a wonderful getaway! This Inn offers beauty, comfort, quietness and delicious food for an extremely reasonable price. We also loved the convenience of walking to downtown Ouray. The hospitality given is outstanding as well. Highly recommend!

Sweet Retreat

5 am Juli 12, 2016

We stayed 2 nights at the China Clipper in Ouray. We had the ground floor suite and it was perfect, It even had an outside seating area that was so peaceful and perfect for enjoying the cool mornings and evenings. The bedroom was a good size and the living area had a Murphy bed and still had a decent amount of room for the 3 of us when the bed was down. Everything looks beautiful and follows the nautical/china theme. Really nice. The best part was our hostess Pat. She was very accommodating and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was great! The fresh homemade muffins were absolutely delicious. I wish we had more time to stay. I like that it is located a block of main but still very close to all the shops and activities you might want to visit. We will definitely be back.

Charming B&B in a lovely mountain town

5 am Juli 06, 2016

This little inn has character and charm. Each room is unique. The owners of the inn were very welcoming and provided a delicious breakfast and coffee. It was a perfect little get away spot in the mountains of beautiful CO.

Great Stay in Ouray B & B

4,6 am Juli 04, 2016

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at the China Clipper Inn. The staff is amazing and the location is perfect . . . close to shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were delicious!

Could not be better...

5 am Juli 01, 2016

From our greeting and check-in, accompanied by a homemade muffin, through robust breakfasts and availability for the little things, our host demonstrated yet again that a great B&B experience goes beyond the accommodations to the people whose home you've been invited into. All we could ask for... and the mountain surround as well!

Enjoyed every minute!

5 am Juni 30, 2016

Our third visit to China Clipper Inn. One of the best B&B's in the USA. Perfect hosts and home. Thanks again for another perfect stay!

Fabulous B and B

5 am Juni 30, 2016

Ingrid and her staff make you feel welcome. The room and dining areas are immaculate. The Inn is within walking distance to downtown and hiking. Delicious breakfast!

A relaxing stay in Ouray

4,8 am Juni 26, 2016

Ingrid was a wonderful host- friendly, welcoming and helpful. Ingrid was able to provide wonderful dinner suggestions and hiking alternatives.Breakfast was plentiful and tasty- a buffet provides a lot of options and flexibility for different tastes with fresh muffins/ pancakes or quiche, eggs and meats as well as fruit, yogurt and cereals. Ouray and the China Clipper are a great place to visit.

Friendly and pleasant

4,6 am Juni 26, 2016

We stayed 2 nights in June for a quick Ouray getaway. The facility was charming, clean and very quiet for sleeping. We enjoyed the hot tub on both nights. The proprietor was very friendly and struck just the right balance of interaction with the guests.

Superb Sailing in Soverign of the Seas

Wonderful bed and breakfast

Relaxing get-a-way!

4,6 am Juni 02, 2016

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.

5 am Mai 26, 2016

We were late arriving and the hosts were more than accommodating and extremely friendly. The breakfast is a must eat. It is fantastic.

Best Kept Secret in Ouray!

5 am März 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

5 am März 19, 2016

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!

Beautiful B and B in a beautiful location. Owners are very friendly and the breakfast delicious. Highly recommend!

Fantastic China Clipper Inn

5 am März 11, 2016

Stayed here for 4 nights in July 2015. Also spent 4 night there the year before. Hosts are fantastic, rooms are comfortable, town is fun and beautiful. What else does one need?

Best B&B in Ouray

5 am März 02, 2016

The China Clipper does not disappoint. Comfortable accommodations, great food, perfect location. Hans and Ingrid are fantastic hosts. Highly recommended for couples.

Wonderful B&B

4,2 am Februar 29, 2016

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

5 am Februar 22, 2016

I love staying here! I come for climbing and the Clipper is always such a lovely place to come back to after a long day. The breakfasts are amazing!!

Best place to stay in Ouray!

4,8 am Januar 04, 2016

Spent one night in late December. Great locatioon nead downtown - can walk everywhere. Very nice hosts and excellant breakfast


5 am Dezember 07, 2015

We wanted to get away from family drama during the recent Thanksgiving Holidays. We had stayed at several places in Ouray but never the China Clipper. The B&B was highly recommended so we booked a stay over the holiday. Our stay was everything we expected and more. Hans and Ingred were extremely hospitable and accommodating. The menu and food was great. With all of the various accommodations available I am sure China Clipper will become a regular for my wife and I. It's great to have such a great experience within a 2 hour drive.

Great Stay Very Nice

5 am Oktober 18, 2015

They do a great job on all fronts ! Would recommend it to all who want to visit Ouray !

Beautiful Old Building in Prime Position

5 am Oktober 13, 2015

We stayed here in September for five nights. We had the Witch of the Waves room which was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The outside decking area with seating was a bonus, particularly on hot afternoons when it was shaded but also nice on cooler mornings in the sunshine! Hans and Ingrid who run the B&B are superb - Hans is totally laid back and very helpful with advice on everything, particularly good hikes to choose. He suggested a great one for us which led up through cool pine trees and open meadows to an old abandoned mine. Hans also makes the world's best fruit muffins! Ingrid is the model of Germanic efficiency and makes suer everything works perfectly - I say Germanic but actually both Hans and Ingrid are Dutch and quite charming!. The B&B is situated on a quiet side street just a 100 yards or so from Ouray's main street and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here so it gets top rating from us!

Superior in all Respects

5 am Oktober 08, 2015

Absolutely no qualifications to a Superior Rating. Great rooms, kind hosts, warm and inviting atmosphere. Best breakfast muffins in the country!

Ouray Visit

Review of the China Clipper Inn

4,0 am September 17, 2015

A WONDERFUL experience! Rating system would not let me choose Outstanding on all of the categories, but if I could have, I would have chosen that!! Hans and Ingrid were perfect hosts!! Can't wait to go back to this charming inn nestled among the beautiful aspen trees!!

Very pleased...

5 am September 13, 2015

The host and hostess were cordial and accommodating. They worked preparing the breakfast together with such ease and enjoyment. The pancakes, muffins, eggs, bacon, beverages and cereals were first rate. So was the hospitality. We would stay there again for sure. Thank you Hans and Ingrid.

China Clipper a Joy to visit

5 am September 06, 2015

Loved this b&b. The two owners were very friendly, the place was lovely and the food just fantabulous. Highly recommended

WOW !! A diamond in the mountains

4,0 am September 02, 2015

Recommended by a friend and truly a great B&B. Enjoyed our stay and will return. Note, scorecard would not accept "Outstanding" only "exceeded our expectations" Service was "outstanding"

Very special place

5 am August 27, 2015

Had a great stay at the China Clipper. One of the best bed and breakfast I have come across! Such a magical setting in the beautiful town of Ouray. This Inn is inpekabley kept and the hosts are sweet and personable but not in your business, which made us relaxed as if it were our place we were staying. They of course made terrific suggestions of what hikes to take and restaurants to eat at. Breakfast was set in a beautiful room, the food was thoughtfully prepared and EVERY detail was attended to. The muffins...... Oh the muffins, a new selection each day and they leave some out for you to grab all day long. My favorite was the peach and white chocolate. We would defiantly go back and stay.

Found treasure in Ouray!

5 am August 27, 2015

My husband usually plans our vacations, but handed over the reins to me to find a place to stay in Ouray. I couldn’t have been happier with my decision to spend time at the China Clipper. What a beautiful inn! The porch was a quiet place where we enjoyed our morning coffee (and fun conversations with other guests) before we were served their delicious breakfast prepared by Hans and Ingrid! So scrumptious! Hans and Ingrid were welcoming and we so enjoyed getting to know them. You have a beautiful treasure and we will be back next year!

A lovely and friendly place

5 am 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 am 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.

5 am August 14, 2015

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


5 am August 12, 2015

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!

4,6 am August 07, 2015

We had a wonderful time and the owners where great. Hans and Ingrid where very helpful and run a very nice B&B.

A Real Gem

5 am Juli 10, 2015

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 am Juli 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

5 am Juni 28, 2015

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 am Juni 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 am Juni 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.

Best Place to stay in Ouray

5 am Juni 02, 2015

Hans and Ingrid are very gracious people. This bed and breakfast is beautiful inside and out. Hans is an amazing cook! Walk to everything in town. One of the most enjoyable places we've ever stayed.

A Very Unique B&B in A Unique Colorado Mining Town

4,0 am Mai 29, 2015

The wife and I found the China Clipper Inn B&B to be a very beautifully decorated and well cared for facility. The friendly hosts, Hans and Ingrid, were kind enough to recommend a variety of eating establishments, and several places of interest for us to consider visiting. The whole experience was so much better and much more relaxing than having stayed in a motel. Gordon & Shirley C The breakfast, prepared by Hans...was superb in every way!

Great Stay

5 am Mai 29, 2015

Hidden gem of a find in Ouray. Quiet with great mountain views right outside our window.

Wonderful B & B

5 am Mai 25, 2015

This great experience started with a great website, as it turns out, that did justice to this wonderful B & B. The B & B's decor reflects its name, China Clipper, with many great sailing pictures and interesting sailing "things." The owners are delightful and charm you with their European heritage. By the way, they have great coffee and the breakfasts were delicious! China Clipper is central to Quray, a great place to visit.

China Clipper Visit

5 am Mai 13, 2015

Had a wonderful stay at the China Clipper Inn. Room was very clean. The Inn itself was quaint and felt like home. Location is one block from the main street and walking distance to good restaurants and the Ouray Brewery. Owner Hans is a very good cook and willingly accommodates changes to the breakfast of the day.

Very Clean and Gracious Hosts - you will love this place!

5 am Mai 11, 2015

The China Clipper Inn is very well maintained with the cleanest rooms I have ever seen. The owners take great pride in the facility and in the happiness of its guests. The breakfast was better than any restaurant in town could have provided and right there on site in the most beautiful enclosed porch with views of the mountains.

Fantastic getaway

5 am April 29, 2015

Everything was amazing. Rooms are beautiful, clean and cozy. Breakfast was fabulous and the owners are so friendly. We will definitely go again and recommend to others. Enjoy this little gem in Ouray if you get a chance.

Great place to Stay

5 am April 13, 2015

We were treated so well on our stay! We stayed just before they closed for vacation, but felt we were treated with extra special care. The food was amazing!

Great place to stay!

5 am März 10, 2015

Rooms are cozy and love the decor. Great breakfast! Will visit again.

Great value with the best hosts in town!

5 am März 02, 2015

My wife and I stayed here on a quick trip away for her Birthday. Hans was very friendly and welcoming and whipped up a wonderful Eggs Benedict for breakfast. We highly recommend you stay here, as we certainly wont be looking anywhere else in Ouray from this point forward!

Wonderful Get Away!

5 am Januar 17, 2015

Had a wonderful night at the China Clipper for our anniversary. The room was romantic and the atmosphere of the entire place was fantastic. The food was good, and the hospitality was top notch. Would stay there again.

Great place to stay in Ouray!

4,0 am Januar 02, 2015

We combined a stay at the China Clipper Inn with a George Winston concert for our 23rd wedding anniversary. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nice accommodations for a winter getaway!

Love Love Love This B&B

5 am Dezember 03, 2014

This is the only B&B we have opted to stay at multiple time in our many travels. We love this place from the rooms to the owners. We can't wait to go back agian!

October birthday

4,4 am Oktober 23, 2014

A great, beautiful weekend, we will be back

China Clipper Inn

5 am Oktober 23, 2014

This was a very lovely place. We will definitely return. The breakfast was fantastic.

Beautiful stay!

5 am Oktober 19, 2014

Highly recommend China Clipper Inn to anyone visiting Ouray, CO. Rooms were comfortable, tasteful and beds cozy. Fireplace in rooms to add that nice warm touch. Innkeepers were friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts were more than delicious!! Quiche, cereals, eggs, yogurt, juices, bacon, sausage, breads, etc. Each day different. Also warm, just out of the oven, delicious muffins. The chocolate ones were like having a piece of chocolate cake for your breakfast dessert. Coffee and assorted teas available 24 hours a day. If you are going to Ouray, you must stay at the China Clipper Inn.!!!

Amazing hosts, accommodations and guests!

5 am Oktober 09, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time in Ouray and at the China Clipper Inn. Ingrid and Hans were a delight to talk with and were stellar hosts. Their homemade breakfasts were wonderful and it was a joy to meet and get to know guests from around the country and even Australia. Although I believe the inn was built almost 20 years ago it looks and feel new. Obviously Ingrid and Hans take great pride in their inn and keep it well maintained. The common areas and rooms are kept very clean and they are quite comfortable and roomy. We plan to visit Ouray next year to hit some trails we missed this year and will surely hope there is room at the China Clipper Inn for our stay.

A wonderful place to stay!

5 am Oktober 09, 2014

My husband and I stayed two nights at the China Clipper in the room "Romance of the Sea". It was a beautifully decorated room with a porch to sit out on during the the crisp cool mornings and evenings. Hans and Ingrid were a delight as host and helped with adventure ideas during our stay. The accommodations were excellent. The breakfasts delicious and was set up as a buffet style and I thought that a great idea for a B&B. My husband and I discussed how hard it would be to keep a place that size so clean. This place was immaculate! We really enjoyed our stay. Room Tip: Just a bit of a warning though, it has a staircase to climb to enter the house and another flight of stairs to some of the rooms.

Always a five star experience!

5 am Oktober 06, 2014

Hans and Ingrid are a welcoming, happy, and engaged host and hostess. We would not stay anywhere else in Ouray.

Nifty Experience, but Not for Us

4,0 am Oktober 06, 2014

We very much enjoyed this B & B experience. The innkeepers, particularly Hans, were most accommodating; however, our room lacked four comforts we find hard to sacrifice: lots of horizontal surfaces, TWO comfortable chairs (or a sofa) so we can both sit and relax/work at the same time, adequate electrical plugs, and coffee in our room.

Very nice inn in a very nice town.

3,8 am Oktober 05, 2014

Hans and Ingrid do a very nice job and are very attentive to their guests. The Inn is a beautiful old building right in the middle of town. It was an easy walk to restaurants.

China Clipper Superb!!

5 am Oktober 04, 2014

OUTSTANDING! This was our first visit to Ouray, Colorado, and as B&B "Experts", we have stayed at many B&B's all over. All B&B"s have their own way of doing things - China Clipper Inn is spot on! While this is a larger B&B (I believe they can host up to 26 guests at a time), the breakfasts were NOT "Plain Jane" - very tasty. Hans even passed on some of his secrets for deeeelish egg dishes, creamy muffins, and tasty herb potatoes. While Inn Keepers can't be everywhere all the time, Hans & Ingrid were just a call away if you needed anything. Highly Recommend. P.S. RE "Tolerable's" below feedback - I think his wife needs to ditch him. This place was great.


3,6 am Oktober 01, 2014

The room and bath room were very clean. The breakfasts were a split. My wife thought the breakfasts were great. I prefer "Plain Jane" food and when Hans mentioned "Eggs Benedict" to me, I asked my wife "what's that?" Poor Hans. So unless you're a person that will eat anything, be prepared.

Fall Stay

3,6 am Oktober 01, 2014

Nice rooms in the center of town, so great location. Very brief time spent at check in orientation. Room was nicely decorated and spacious. Shower was small and water was difficult to turn on to correct temp. The evenings in Ouray are cool, but even with the windows open our room did not cool off so we had to run the AC. Effective but noisy. Breakfast was buffet style, which meant pancakes and eggs were sitting in the warming dish and not done fresh. Nothing special about the spread. Nice public areas inside. Several outside porches with nice views, but not clear if they were open to all guests or supposed to belong to a specific room.

The China Clipper is OUTSTANDING

5 am September 28, 2014

This was our second trip. What a wonderful place! We could not,have been more pleased.

Perfect stay

4,8 am September 18, 2014

It was just a perfect stay, cosy, nice, and special. Just stay there!


5 am September 05, 2014

I'll make this short. Stay here, it's absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect.

Great place

4,8 am September 04, 2014

Highly recommend!


4,2 am August 24, 2014

Hans & Ingrid are very accommodating, lovely people. Breakfasts were scrumptious. Pleasant room close to the hot tub.

Great way to spend 40th anniversary

4,8 am August 23, 2014

Very hospitable hosts

Excellent Stay

5 am August 14, 2014

We had an awesome stay at the China Clipper. Han and Ingrid are warm and friendly and make you feel at home. The breakfast was wonderful especially the homemade muffins. Wished I had gotten those wonderful recipes. They are great hostess and look forward to going again. Sylvia and Brent

Weekend Getaway

4,8 am August 11, 2014

What a truly enjoyable weekend! Wonderful and friendly innkeepers; met great people from across the U.S.; breakfast was amazingly yummy; and the rooms were very clean as was the rest of the bed and breakfast. We definitely will be back!


5 am August 02, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the China Clipper for a night getaway and it was fantastic! We have stayed at the Beaumont Hotel on Main Street in Ouray and The China Clipper by far exceeds it. The room was wonderful, clean and cozy. The breakfast was fantastic and each morning there are new muffins (which I stole a few of :)) Thanks for a great experience. We will definitely be back soon!!!

Great place to stay when visiting Ouray!

4,8 am August 02, 2014

You will come for the amazing natural beauty, but you will come back for the muffins! Hans and Ingrid are great inn keepers, and were very helpful in suggesting hikes and the tour company for our 4-wheel adventure (definitely do this, it is amazing). The muffins they made each morning for breakfast were simply fantastic, and they were available most of the day as well. We are not sure that the hiking burned off all of the calories, but they are definitely worth it. Ouray is a must see, and Telluride was fun also. We were there in early July, and there was still plenty of snow on the mountain peaks to add that little bit of extra beauty. We had a great stay and we will be back!


4,4 am August 01, 2014

Always a pleasure to stay there. Thanks

Beautiful House, excellent location

4,8 am Juli 30, 2014

Enjoyed the garden and hot tub. Really liked sitting on the porch. Great Breakfast.

Awesome hosts!

5 am Juli 28, 2014

Ingrid and Hans are awesome. The rooms are cozy and very nice.

Beautifu place.

4,8 am Juli 27, 2014

My wife is very particular, and she loved this place. Have recommended to our Kids and will stay again if we go back to the area

Beautiful anniversary setting

5 am Juli 21, 2014

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary so I chose the Romance Package. We had a fantastic stay in the captain quarters and our dinner at the BonTon was delicious, so good that we drove over from Telluride to dine at the restaurant again.

Great stay at the china clipper inn!

5 am Juli 19, 2014

Hans and Ingrid are great - we really enjoyed our stay.

The Best!

4,6 am Juli 16, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the China Clipper for three days on our honeymoon. We stayed at several other bed and breakfasts and we both agreed that this one was our favorite! The house has a comfortable but rich atmosphere. The attention to detail in the decoration of the rooms made it stand out. The beds were very comfortable, though I would suggest bringing your own pillow. The public sitting areas in and outside the B&B were comfortably large and inviting. The China Clipper Inn is quiet with plenty of privacy even though it is right off the main street in Ouray. Hans and Ingrid were very friendly, gave great food and activity suggestions and we enjoyed our conversations with them. They made great buffet breakfasts which we ate in a little sunroom looking out over the mountains. We are definitely planning on returning in the future.

Karen & Warren's Stay

4,0 am Juli 15, 2014

No complaints...stayed in the 1st Mate's room. King bed was great, huge bathroom and closet. The inn is located one street off Main so it was very quiet. Around the corner were resturants, coffee shops. Try the Outlaw for great steaks! Breakfast was huge, and every day had several options. The hot tub made for a nice way to relax in the evening.

China Clipper Inn

5 am Juli 09, 2014

My wife and I have stayed in B&B's in France, England and Germany. The China Clipper Inn is the best we've ever encountered and, with apologies to Esther Smith, "it's right here in our own home town". (Meet me in St. Louis).

Small town B&B Inn

4,2 am Juli 07, 2014

This B&B Inn is in the scenic mountain town of Ouray, Colorado. The decor has a nautical theme which is a little unique for a moutain community, but it is a beautiful facility. The hot tub and room controlled air conditioning were big pluses. The facility has many stairs which could make it difficult for some people to navigate. The breakfast was served buffet style and was both delicious and varied. The hosts were available by phone if not on the premises. We were very happy with our stay at the China Clipper.

Fourth of July in Ouray

5 am Juli 07, 2014

OUTSTANDING! We will return to Ouray and the China Clipper Inn! Thank you Ingrid & Hans for providing an excellent B&B experience. 5 STARS!

Relaxing Luxury

5 am Juli 02, 2014

The China Clipper exceeded our expectations! Hans and Ingrid provided wonderful breakfasts and warm hospitality. Our room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and comfortable.

4,4 am Juni 25, 2014

Hans is a great cook. Breakfast was awesome. Room was clean and comfortable.

Outstanding on all Measures!

5 am Juni 24, 2014

This is a beautiful, clean and well-maintained property conveniently located just one block off of the main street in Ouray. We liked the back patio area with hot tub and the breakfasts were really delicious. Hans and Ingrid run a top notch b and b. Can't wait to visit again!

Good Times

4,4 am Juni 23, 2014

We stayed in the "Romance of the Sea" room. It was very spacious and comfortable. The private balcony is not quite what we expected since it is basically the entry walkway for all the rooms with a door separating the walkway. The neighbors had to tuck their knees in as I tried to squeeze past them while they were enjoying their "balcony" a few times. The breakfast was wonderful, the owners are very friendly, and the location is prefect for exploring the town. Overall it was a pleasurable experience.

One great night stay

4,8 am Juni 23, 2014

We stayed one night. The room was spacious, clean, charming and extremely comfortable. The location of the inn could not have been better and the owners provided every bit of information we asked for. The breakfast was one of the best we had on this 9 day vacation.

Exceeded my expectations!

5 am Juni 08, 2014

An outstanding property, well-run, in a great location. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful B & B. Ingrid & Hans are a charming couple, providing a comfortable and inviting home to stay. I appreciated the email communication shortly after making my reservation and they kindly worked with me for a late check in. The food was so good (amazing blueberry muffins)! The entire home was immaculate. Cozy sitting areas inside and outside. Absolutely recommend this one! ~~Marsha Crested Butte

Fantastic Ouray Bed and Breakfast

5 am Mai 26, 2014

We wish we could have stayed longer...

Unexpected Delight

5 am Mai 23, 2014

Our trip through SW Colorado included a stay at China Clipper Inn. It was a wonderful experience and turned out to be one of our favorite B&Bs of all time. Ingrid and Hans are delightful hosts who take great care of their Inn and with their guests. True hospitality in every sense of the word. Highly recommend this beautiful B&B experience.

Absolutely Perfect!

5 am Mai 04, 2014

We wanted a quiet, relaxing getaway. It was the perfect place! Top notch! Beautiful location with views of the breathtaking mountains surrounding them. Great breakfast and absolutely gorgeous accommodations from plush towels and comfy beds to very clean and quaintly decorated rooms. Innkeepers are truly friendly and take great pride in their inn. Don't miss staying at the China Clipper when in Ouray! Tim & Debbie

The innkeeper was wonderfully friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious! The room was super clean, beautifully decorated and absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway! Highly recommended!

Quiet, clean, friendly place to stay in a beautiful mountain town!

4,6 am Januar 22, 2014

The building is beautiful! Victorian feel with modern amenities. Off of the main highway (which means its is very quiet), but only one block from shopping and dining. The building, room and even the hot tub were spotless! Every single person was friendly and inviting! I would highly recommend the China Clipper Inn! I look forward to my next visit!

Best in Ouray...maybe best anywhere!

5 am Januar 05, 2014

This is our fourth stay here and it is always amazing each time! The innkeepers are warm and friendly and the accommodations first-class! The breakfasts are simply outstanding....we can make a meal just from their fresh homemade muffins alone! We highly recommend the China Clipper Inn - and will continue to visit them well into the future! Tom and Geri

New Year's Eve at the China Clipper

Best B&B I've been to yet!

4,8 am November 19, 2013

The China Clipper Inn in Ouray was absolutely wonderful. We stayed there for our anniversary and loved the room (Captains Quarters), the delicious breakfasts and the town in general. Though it was the off-season and many of the stores were closed, we enjoyed a nice quiet retreat and the China Clipper was the perfect place to do it. Next time we're in Ouray, we'll be staying here again.

overnight in ouray

4,2 am November 09, 2013

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast. We met some wonderful folks from Texas and San Diego and would certainly stay at China Clipper again. Wonderful!!

B & B Delight

4,2 am Oktober 30, 2013

Spent the night for our anniversary. Perfect. The Inn is a two story B and B with 13 rooms. Our room came with a fireplace, views and bathrobes. The Inn is within walking distance of the town and restaurants. The hosts are gracious and personable. We sat in the enclosed front porch with our ham and eggs breakfast and marveled at the sunlight mountain views. The Town of Ouray, China Clipper Inn and the Bon Ton Restaurant made our anniversary 5 Star.

China Clipper Inn

4,8 am Oktober 26, 2013

Very nice room with very comfortable mattress. We were especially grateful that back entrance enabled us to avoid climbing stairs. Food was great and ready on time each morning.

Awesome Room, Food, and Location

5 am Oktober 22, 2013

Hans and Ingrid are fantastic hosts! We enjoyed our stay immensely! From the beautiful home-like setting, cozy room with fireplace and deck; to the delicious breakfasts of eggs benedict, blueberry pancakes and homemade muffins; to the gorgeous location of Ouray! We parked our truck when we arrived and did not get in it until 4 days later when we left. We could walk everywhere and did. The hiking was wonderful and the fall colors beautiful. Highly recommend!


5 am Oktober 20, 2013

Truly enjoyed our overnight experience. The Inn was attractively decorated. The Innkeepers were warm and friendly.

Your Home in Ouray!

5 am Oktober 19, 2013

What a great place! We spent two nights here and loved every aspect of this lovely B&B! It was cozy and comfortable, close to some hiking trails and great restaurants (suggested by our hosts). I would definitely return to the China Clipper if I am in Ouray!!!

Awesome views with perfect hospitality!

5 am Oktober 16, 2013

Our thanks to Hans and Ingrid for putting us up. It is a beautiful home in an wonderful setting. We simply loved it.

China Clipper review

5 am Oktober 16, 2013

Hans and Ingrid are very friendly and customer service oriented. Their breakfast is very good with home-made muiffins every morning. The rooms are very clean with very nice furniture and beds.

We plan to go back

4,0 am Oktober 12, 2013

We had a wonderful time at the China Clipper.....Hans shared things to do each day that kept us busy and active. Breakfast was always delicious....I wish they would have cooked lunch and dinner as well!! Very quiet atmosphere and the rooms were extremely clean!

China Clipper is a gem in the heart of the Colorado mineral belt

5 am Oktober 09, 2013

My wife an I recently took a trip to the southwestern Colorado town of Ouray in the heart of a historic Colorado mining area and in the midst of fall aspen tree colors. We stayed and China Clipper in Ouray for 3 nights. The house, bed rooms, and common living rooms and the entire facility was a first rate gem. The owner Hans and his wife are excellent hosts and keep the place in excellent condition. The breakfasts were simple, wholesome, and very well prepared. The muffins were the best I've ever tasted and I wouldn't have normally go for muffins, but they are a must try. It's a great place and I highly recommend it, especially for a couples get-away.

Love this B and B

5 am Oktober 08, 2013

This was our first time to Ouray and happened upon this charming place. We stayed in the First Mates Room which was spacious and comfortable. Large bathroom with many comforts such as fluffy robes. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely come back.

What a lovely surprise!

4,2 am Oktober 07, 2013

Sadly, we spent only one night at the China Clipper, but we'd both love to return someday. Can't say enough nice things about the bed (extremely tall, and comfortable), breakfast (delicious), our hosts (charming and warm), the location (spectacular scenery) and the house (beautiful with a great story to boot!)

A beautiful inn in a beautiful town

5 am Oktober 07, 2013

I enthusiastically recommend The China Clipper Inn to anyone traveling to Ouray, Colorado. The rooms are beautiful, the innkeepers are helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts and especially the muffins are delicious. We had a wonderful stay. Barbara and Max El Tawil, Spring Branch, TX

2nd time there

4,8 am September 28, 2013

Ouray is beautiful and this was our 2nd time staying at the China Clipper Inn. It was very nice and breakfast was great. One of my favorites was the blueberry pancakes.

A Terrific Stay

5 am September 28, 2013

A real first class experience! The innkeepers were outstanding and was the breakfast. It was the first Bed and Breakfast we've stayed at that numerous customers were asking for the recipes for muffins and other items.The only mild complaint was the traffic noise early in the morning. I would highly recommend The China Clipper


4,6 am September 26, 2013

Great value, friendly owners!

Great stay!

4,8 am September 23, 2013

We loved our stay at the China Clipper. We were in the First Mates Quarters which was quite large with a spacious bathroom, whirlpool tub and even fluffy bath robes.

5 am September 11, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was one of our favorite vacations and what made it so incredible was Hans. He knew exactly where to send us to get the most out of our stay. The hikes were beautiful. The spa relaxing and we still haven't gotten over our ATV ride to Imogene pass! Hans also make the most amazing breakfasts. Anyone staying in Ouray should stay here! (and I had pleny of washclothes)

We love the China Clipper. We first visited 15 years ago and 15 years later, the Inn is very well maintained. Rooms are nice and cozy, food delicious and the hot tub was extremely relaxing.

Awesome place to stay!!

5 am August 21, 2013

Great place to stay. We really enjoyed our visit and hated to leave. Ingrid and Hans were wonderful hosts. Can't wait to go back.

First visit to Ouray, CO.

5 am August 20, 2013

This B&B has wonderful charm and a family atmosphere! Conveniently located to walk anywhere in downtown Ouray.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

4,6 am August 19, 2013

Stayed for three nights in August 2013. Had the Captains Quarters room. This room has a wonderful private balcony where we spent a lot of time gazing at the eastern palisade.

Perfect place for our Ouray stay

5 am August 19, 2013

Hans and Ingrid are a delightful couple and great hosts at this high-quality B&B. Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles, freshly baked peach/white chocolate muffins and great advice about our first hike in Ouray. The attention to detail is evident in this up to date Victorian style home. Although the comforts of modern living in a dynamite setting. The room was larger than it appears in the website photos, very comfortable, clean and we had a great view. Breakfasts were over-the-top good. Not sure when we will make it back to Ouray but I would not even look at another option for a place to stay. Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you choose the China Clipper!

A great stay in a great town

5 am August 19, 2013

Loved the room the common area and of course the breakfast along with a daily dose of muffins! Location is quiet but very central to everything in town. Our hosts were very helpful in pointing out the features of their town as well as the activities we were interested in.

Elegance and Style

5 am August 18, 2013

China Clipper Inn was beautiful and impressive. Sitting areas were on the front porch and the back patio. Nice outdoor hot tub was just outside the room. Interior spaces - the bedroom, dining area, library, and drawing rooms - all had style and sophistication. Interior decoration was nautical themed and we loved it. Our hosts, Hans and Ingrid were knowledgeable about the area and offered superb recommendations for dining and things to do in the area. The breakfast buffet was the best we've experienced in a B&B. The China Clipper is well located - only one block away from Ouray's main street. This is a B&B you don't want to miss. We plan to return in the future.

Our one night stay was perfect

4,6 am August 16, 2013

Rooms clean and nice. Hot tub good. Location perfect. Immaculate home. Very comfortable mattress.

Relaxing weekend trip

5 am August 15, 2013

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast in a beautiful town! The morning breakfast was hot and the muffins were amazing! Hans and Ingrid were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the town, hiking trails, dining and anything else you would like to do. Thank you for a lovely getaway!

A Defninte Treat!

4,2 am August 15, 2013

Great B&B. Comfortable, great amenities and location. Icing on the cake in beautiful Ouray. Definitely recommend this outstanding B&B.

Beautiful home and great location

4,0 am August 14, 2013

This may be the nicest decorated and cleanest B&B we've ever stayed at. The decorating was beautiful and the house immaculate. It is one block off main street and close to everything in Ouray, yet in a quiet location. The owners were friendly, but we missed some of the hospitality we've experienced at other B&B's. Except for breakfast, we never saw them. This was our first B&B with a self service buffet. We would stay again.

wonderful anniversary weekend!

4,6 am August 11, 2013

China Clipper Inn was everything advertised and more. What a great host Hans was! the food was great, rooms beautiful, location so convient to downtown, and a good time was had by all

Wonderful place!

4,6 am August 05, 2013

We had a great time at the China Clipper Inn! The innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are lovely. We highly reccomend it!

we will be visiting again!

5 am Juli 31, 2013

This was our second stay, and we loved it as much as the first...we will be visiting again! Donna & Eric Bame

Wonderful Experience

5 am Juli 29, 2013

This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The inn is nestled right up against a mountain and we were fortunate to have booked a room with a balcony. It was such a lovely place to sit at any time of the day. Ingrid and Hans are incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!

Great Deal!

4,4 am Juli 27, 2013

The owners are very helpful, personable and welcoming. This place is near everything. The rooms are sweet, very clean and smell great! I think this is a gem with excellent service and outstanding value!

Ouray in July

4,6 am Juli 26, 2013

Our second stay at China Clipper was excellent. The inn keeper, Hans, Is a great guy and made us feel very welcome. In our opinion, China Clipper is the BEST place to stay in Ouray. Breakfast is delicious! Try it and enjoy!

China Clipper is an outstanding option in Ouray

4,8 am Juli 25, 2013

There are many nice lodging options in Ouray. China Clipper has a charming, elegant decor and refined finishing. The innkeepers are friendly pay attention to detail. The breakfast was tasty and satisfying. Each morning the selection was fresh and varied from the day before.

This was a very memorable place to stay!

4,8 am Juli 25, 2013

Our hosts were always helpful, pleasant, and attentive to any needs we might have.

Awesome B & B!!

5 am Juli 24, 2013

Love this place! The rooms are so quaint, love the views & easy access to shops & restaurants in Ouray, Great hot tub on the deck & no one makes a Breakfast like Hans & Ingrid! This is the nicest place in Ouray without a doubt!!

The ONLY place to stay in Ouray!

5 am Juli 22, 2013

I recently stayed at the China Clipper for an event I was attending in Ouray. This hotel is BY FAR one of the best I have stayed in. Hans and Ingrid are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. The property itself is extremely clean and quiet, I recommend it to anyone that will be in the area. I attend a yearly event in Ouray and this is the ONLY place I will stay from now on. Thanks Hans and Ingrid! - Justin

Excellent B&B in Ouray

5 am Juli 17, 2013

What a great experience! My husband and I took my parents to the China Clipper so we could show them Ouray, one of our favorite spots in Colorado. It was our first time staying here and it was awesome. We stayed on the bottom floor with one bedroom and murphy bed. It had it's own entry and a great patio space that we spent quite a bit of time on. It was super clean and spacious and worked well for the 4 of us. Hans and Ingrid were perfect hosts as well. The breakfast is some the best I have ever had, especially the quiche! Overall, it was a great time for all of us and we hope to return soon!

Charming Bed and Breakfast

4,8 am Juli 15, 2013

Very clean and charming facility. Friendly and helpful owners with knowledge about area activities and establishments. Hans even helped carry our bags to our second floor room. Delicious breakfast! I would definitely stay at China Clipper Inn again.

pleasant stay

5 am Juli 14, 2013

we thoroughly enjoyed China Clipper, rooms are attractive, spotlessly clean, nbreakfast delicious, hot tub should be a bit hotter.

Anniversary Adventure

4,8 am Juli 12, 2013

1st time to Ouray from Chama, NM. Wife's 1st B&B experience, and a wonderful one at that. Had the feel of a resort rather than a stranger's house. Thanks Hans & Ingrid for your hospitality and the candybars wrapped in a muffin. Woah! This place has economy to luxury that the chain hotel down the street can't give you! The newly remodeled "Lower Deck" was clean, comfortable, and cozy; got in after dark both nights, didn't mind not having a view. Great place to base your adventures from...we hit the Imogene Trail into Telluride and made the 1 hour highway drive back to stay here. Great company and conversations over breakfast too. Gr8 way to spend the anniversary. Glad we found you all. Wish I was here, rather than at work!! :( Looking for excuses to go back soon. :) Joe & MJ Carrillo

China Vlipper in June

3,4 am Juli 12, 2013

The view was not as excellent as it said on the website. My wife is on diet restrictions. Hans did what he could to accommodate some but it was difficult with a buffet.

Outstanding Inn in an Outstanding Location

5 am Juli 11, 2013

We stayed four nights in late June 2013. Our hosts Hans and Ingrid went out of their way to not only be helpful but to be genuine as well! Our room, Witch of the Waves, was a corner room that allowed for a nice cooling mountain breeze at night. Breakfast was bountiful and you had choice from routine to their daily changing choices. All was nicely and tastefully done. Could not recommend more!

Awesome Ouray B & B

5 am Juli 11, 2013

Everything about the China Clipper is perfect from the location to the hosts to the breakfast - and who can forget the incredible rooms. We will be back!

Everything at the China Clipper was OUTSTANDING, however

5 am Juli 07, 2013

It was the detail to the guest that was amazing. Both Hans and Ingrid are very hardworking Owners/Innkeepers. If there is Innkeeper of the year they should get First Place. We hope to go back to Colorado for a Fall Color trip and we will stay at the China Clipper Inn for sure.

Worth the Money in Ouray!

4,8 am Juni 26, 2013

Two night stay was ideal for seeing Ouray and Telluride areas. The China Clipper Inn was within walking distance of most everything we wanted to see and do in the town of Ouray. Innkeepers were so friendly and helpful in suggesting outings and places to eat. Breakfasts both mornings were exceptional.

Summer Stay in Ouray

4,4 am Juni 25, 2013

The innkeepers are delightful and knowledgable about Ouray and the surrounding area!

10th Anniversary

4,6 am Juni 13, 2013

The China Clipper Inn is a fabulous establishment. Your hosts Hans and Ingrid are wonderfully welcoming, friendly, and eager to make your stay just as pleasant as possible. I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast and we will certainly be returning!

Happy Retirees

5 am Juni 12, 2013

This was the most enjoyable stay. The B&B was nicely located, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, the innkeepers were absolutely wonderful. They could not have done more to make our stay more memorable. We are looking forward to visiting them again.

June 2013

4,8 am Juni 09, 2013

We recently spent 2 nights at the China Clipper Inn. The owners are wonderful; very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. The town of Ouray is beautiful. We would definitely stay there again!

Very pleasant stay

3,6 am Mai 31, 2013

This is a modern structure built as a B&B but in a traditional style. It has the feel of a heritage property but all the comforts of a newer building. The rooms are nicely furnished and there are lots of interesting accessories throughout the building that bring in the travel theme. Hosts Hans and Ingrid were very welcoming and served up a very nice buffet breakfast...delicious muffins in addition to hot dishes, fruit, cereal, etc. Location was also very convenient being a short walk to the Main Street of Ouray with plenty of parking. Inn was very well maintained. All together this was a very pleasant stop and we would not hesitate to stay there on our next trip to SW Colorado.

Beautiful accommodations in a beautiful place!

4,4 am Mai 30, 2013

Ouray and the China Clipper Inn were both absolutely delightful surprises! The inn surpassed all our expectations; Ingrid and Hans are so welcoming and service-oriented. You'll find great hospitality here, along with sensational breakfasts, a peaceful room and breathtaking views of the majestic mountains. This is a classy place; we will return!

This was a nice B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience .

4,6 am Mai 16, 2013

Great B&B! We really enjoyed the experience.


5 am Mai 09, 2013

We wish we could have stayed mroe than one night ---- the China Clipper Inn is delightful as are Hans and Ingrid. Hans was very informative regarding the hot springs, hikes in the area, most scenic route to Denver. The sleeping rooms and public rooms were lovely and walking distance to trails and restaurants. The breakfast was fabulouis. We will definitely stay at the China Clipper Inn again!

An amazing view!

5 am Mai 08, 2013

What a beautiful place to run away for a romantic stay. We booked the captains quarters and we were in love. It feels as if you own the place. The open shower and tub add a little romance to the room and sleeping with the fire place glowing was just out of this world. We will return.


4,6 am Mai 07, 2013

My girlfriend and I couldn't have picked a better place for a romantic getaway. The owners were very kind and friendly. The room was beautiful and the food was wonderful. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to our friends.

Off Season Getaway

4,4 am Mai 02, 2013

We received a long weekend getaway for a wedding present. Since Ouray is near a ski resort (Telluride) and a summer recreation mecca, we booked our getaway during the April off-season. Town was quiet, shops were mostly closed. Only a couple other guests in the China Clipper. It was wonderful. Hiking during the day along the Perimeter Trail, the High Bridge, and of course, Box Canyon . . . all leaving on foot from the B&B. Breakfasts were nice, especially the fresh fruit. Room was wonderful, clean, and private. Spent a couple of hours in the hot tub with a bit of snow drifting gently down on our heads. All in all a great, relaxing, reinvigorating weekend. Definitely recommend.

Sublime B&B

5 am April 06, 2013

The China Clipper Inn has charm, amazing views, wonderful hosts and a great breakfast. Our room and bathroom were spacious, immaculate and beautifully decorated. The inn itself has old world charm coupled with every modern convenience. Hans and Ingrid are gracious hosts. The China Clipper Inn is the perfect getaway nestled in the Rocky Mountains.


5 am März 21, 2013

This was an delightful place to stay! I loved it! The host's were so friendly. The place is every eye pleasing, everything about this B & B was great. I will be staying again.

Look no further - stay here!

4,6 am März 08, 2013

We stayed four days and loved it. We were in a room with a tub and shower and was a bit surprised to see there was no shower curtain but with the oversized tub water getting out was not an issue you just couldn't have guests over to visit while you're showering :-). The owners are fabulous and make the best breakfasts I've ever had. We are planning another trip in the fall to Ouray and will stay at the China Clipper again for sure. The hot tub in back was a great addition too and we enjoyed watching the snow fall in the warm water.

Our stay

4,4 am März 01, 2013

We had a great stay here. The owners were very nice and personable, breakfast was delicious! The only thing that wasn't that great were the sheets. They were a bit rough and left our skin feeling raw and itchy. Everything else was very pleasant though.

Ouray's China Clipper Inn

4,2 am Februar 28, 2013

Always an enjoyable experience at the China Clipper, reasonable walking distance to eateries and bars in Ouray, the best breakfasts and the private hot tub is a bonus. Off-season's also a great deal, especially for ice climbers who want to splurge.

Great place to stay!

5 am Februar 27, 2013

Cozy room. Comfortable place to stay. Breakfast for two mornings was delicious. Hans muffins are out of this world! Hans and Ingrid were helpful and friendly. I have stayed at other bed and breakfasts in Ouray CO over the years. This is now my favorite! Definitely will be back.

Great B&B for a close getaway.

4,6 am Februar 21, 2013

We had a great time and it was very relaxing. The couple that own the B&B are very personable. The breakfast both mornings was outstanding. We are going back in the spring.

Valentine's Day Treat

3,8 am Februar 19, 2013

My long lost love and I spent two nights at the China Clipper to celebrate Valentine's Day. It was a great experience. Room/decor was very nice. A bottle of chilled champagne was waiting for us when we arrived. Hans and Ingrid are wonderful hosts. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. Upon checkout, I realized I left a shirt in the closet. When I called Hans to ask if he would send it to me, he replied "No problem, we do this all the time". This is how a business should be run. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a memorable stay in Ouray.

Very low key and relaxing

5 am Februar 06, 2013

A wonderful B&B with plenty of common space, quiet, centrally located for walking access to whole town. Friendly low key owners as well. Breakfast is first class.

Winter 2013

4,6 am Januar 27, 2013

The China Clipper experience was excellent for our Jan 2013 stay. This time of year is the off season for Ouray so the place was quiet. The B&B was great and we would stay there again if revisiting the town. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters and it is an excellent room.

We keep coming back

5 am Januar 21, 2013

We have stayed at other hotels and B&B's in Ouray, but this one is our favorite. We come back to it every winter and are never disappointed.

Another awesome experience at the China Clipper

4,8 am Januar 16, 2013

This was my second stay at the China Clipper and I was very happy with the service. I go to the Ouray Ice Festival pretty often and the few times I haven't stayed at the China Clipper Ive regretted it. The China Clipper is the best place to stay in Ouray. Breakfast is delicious, Hans and Ingrid are always helpful and the location is pretty central. Close enough to main street without noise from the traffic.

A great New Years Eve visit

5 am Januar 15, 2013

The Clipper Inn is one of the nicest we have stayed at. The Inn itself is warm and inviting and our hosts were so friendly and helpful. The home made muffins everyday were a real hit with a lovely cup of tea available. The breakfasts were delicious every day and the room was spotless. A place we will definitely stay at again.

Anniversary Stay

4,8 am Januar 13, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Clipper for our anniversary. The inn was quiet, quaint, and cozy. The inn keepers were very friendly and had great advice on sight seeing. Ouray is a quiet town in the winter but it was just what we needed. We will be back!

Stay here!

5 am Januar 03, 2013

This is a great place to stay in a stunning mountain town--the hosts are super-cool and the breakfast is fabulous. The whole show is superlative.

Best Bed & Breakfast in the State!

5 am Dezember 31, 2012

This the cutest little place and very inviting just like the picture. The innkeepers are warm and accomodating. We will definitely stay there in the future.

Great time !

5 am Dezember 24, 2012

Hans and Ingrid are great Hosts, super nice rooms.. Cannot wait to book our next visit. Jeff n Julie

2 nights in Ouray China Clipper

4,8 am Dezember 20, 2012

I have been there, alone or with my wife. Each time we have been really enjoying the room and the outstang breakfast. When you come you feel at home. All the nice comfort like hairdryer, fireplace and coffe-maker and lots of books and DVD to enjoy. The location is silent and parking there. Restaurants are in close walking distance. I never missed anything at the China-Clipper in the heart of Ouray in a silent street.

Highly recommended!!

4,4 am Dezember 18, 2012

Have already recommended this B&B to friends and family! Perfect for the romantic getaway or a nice place to do some site seeing and enjoy getting away from the city. Breakfast was a real treat! We loved our stay, Thank you Hans & Ingrid

Absolutely Wonderful Experience!

5 am Dezember 18, 2012

My bride and I stayed here for 2 nights for a much needed get away. We were very pleased with how friendly and welcoming Hans and Ingrid the innkeepers were. The inn itself was beautiful and very clean, and the room was perfect. Hans proved himself to be very competent in the kitchen preparing us the most delicious breakfasts. We would highly recommend The China Clipper and look forward to our next visit to Ouray.

Very Impressed.

5 am November 17, 2012

This was our first visit to a B&B and was a weekend get away for our anniversary. From the minute we walked in the door until the time we left we were completely impressed with the inn and the service. Due to unforeseen circumstances, a couple things did not go quite as planned but we were more than happy with the way Ingrid took care of everything. Have already recommended the China Clipper to many friends and will continue to do so. Can not wait to make another trip to Ouray and will definitely stay at the Clipper again. The wife's only complaint was that the Eggs Benedict for breakfast was so good that Hans has ruined her, she does not think she will ever be satisfied with anyone else' eggs Benedict again.

Oct 26-28 2012

5 am November 07, 2012

Rooms, Service, Value, Cleanliness, outstanding rating. Food was very good also, but my poached eggs were never soft and runny over those delicious vegetables....always semi hard boiled. We would return

Great Weekend!

4,8 am November 05, 2012

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at the China Clipper Inn. We had a great time, and made to feel like family! The breakfast was such a delight and the weekend could not have been more perfect!

An "Over and Above" Inn

5 am Oktober 30, 2012

We have stayed at other Ouray B & B's. None compare to the accommodiations at the China Clipper.. Our room had a beautiful view and the breakfast was scrumptious.

Great place

3,6 am Oktober 07, 2012

Convenient to the town. Yummy breakfasts each morning. Owners friendly and helpful.

Don't Be Fooled By All The Steps!

5 am Oktober 05, 2012

You can park in the back through the alley and avoid one flight of steps. The room Souvereign by the Sea is a darling room that gives the appearance of being on a ship. The curtains are so white and clean just like the room is so clean. You need to go up 2 steps to get into the comfortable bed. Lots of good food for breakfast. Great way to meet others when traveling alone.

The Greatest Host's

5 am September 29, 2012

Thank you for such a wonderful, special time we spent in Ouray and thanks to you we will be back!!! What a wonderful B&B!!!! We loved every momemt!

Totally Awesome!!

4,6 am September 29, 2012

Our stay at the China Clipper was simpy wonderful!! Hans and Ingrid made us feel right at home in their home. The home is beautiful..not a bad view from anywhere in the house. Would definitely pay a return visit!!

Tops in hospitality!

5 am September 21, 2012

A two night stay at this delightful bed and breakfast was made even better thanks to Hans and Ingrid. Both are professional, but oh so personable. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ouray. Walter and Kay

A wonderful weekend in Ouray

4,6 am September 21, 2012

A stay at the Chna Clipper was a perfect way to enjoy a beautiful fall weekend. Hans and Ingrid were perfect hosts and advised us on the best places to eat and visit. The rooms were great and the other guests were all very friendly. We will definitely be going back. You can't go bad with a stay at the China Clipper!

Wonderful stay in Ouray.

3,6 am September 20, 2012

Stayed in the Captain's Quarters over the Bluegrass Festival weekend. The fall colors were gorgeous, the B&B was beautiful, and the owners were very kind and friendly. Watch out for the directions on iPhone maps! They will lead you in circles for hours.

Beautiful property

4,2 am September 19, 2012

We had a very relaxing stay. Will definitely return. The owners are very friendly.

Outstanding B&B

5 am September 17, 2012

I've been in B&B's that you feel you are in someone else's house/home. Not here. We had a room with door leading to the small lobby and one lead to the outside in the rear of the building. No continental breakfast here. It should be a bed & BREAKFAST (all caps). You will ask for recipes. This is a full breakfast expertly cooked and presented. I knew as soon as I walked into the front door that is was one of the best B&B's I have been in. The 2 nights stayed there only reinforced my first impressions. You will not be disappointed. Furniture is all victorian and makes you feel you are transported into another moment in time. All aspects are 5 star including Hans' warmth and hospitality which is not a category. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

China Clipper Ouray

4,6 am September 13, 2012

This is a well run b&b. Hans greeted us with a handshake and worked hard to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed the eggs benedict with asparagus. The pleasant room was furnished with antiques and a fireplace.

Very Pleasant Experience

5 am September 04, 2012

We just recently stayed at the China Clipper and would go back there in a heart beat! We have stayed at several Five Star hotels/resorts around this country and would highly recommend the China Clipper. The owners were very pleasant and made us feel at home.

Great place for a get-a-way!

4,6 am September 03, 2012

So quaint, so beautiful, great location, and amazing service! The hidden hot tub garden was like being in our own little hot springs. Restaurants and shopping are close yet the Inn was nice and private. We will be back for sure!!

China Clipper Inn

4,0 am August 31, 2012

Very beautiful inn with a wonderful young couple managing it. Located in a very small town in the Rockies with beautiful views and an easy hike to beautiful Cascade Falls. Would highly recommend.

Really nice place to stay in an awesome corner of Colorado!

4,0 am August 31, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at the China Clipper and it was great! Super location just one block off of the main street. The room was so nice with an exterior door leading to one of the best hot tubs I've seen in a while (jets everywhere!). The breakfast is served buffet style which allows for a longer serving time (7:30 - 10:30 I think) thereby letting you sleep in if you desire, but the downside of that is lukewarm dishes and nothing much different than you get at a typical Best Western free breakfast. However, they make fabulous homemade muffins each morning which are delicious! All in all I would totally recommend the China Clipper ~

Incredible B&B

5 am August 27, 2012

The China Clipper Inn in Ouray was the highlight of our vacation. From the moment we entered the front door we knew this place was special. After being greeted by the owner, Hans, and offered some of his homemade muffins, we were escorted to our room. Amazing. Great canyon view out the window, and a spacious bathroom. It was so quiet we thought the place was empty, until breakfast, and there were 12 other guests enjoying the morning and delicious food. We recommend the China Clipper as the go to spot in Ouray. I rated it all 5 stars because our stay was flawless, and Hans truly cares about his guests.

China Clipper Inn is a great place to lodge

3,8 am August 21, 2012

Both Hans and Ingrid are great caring hosts. They were very hospitable and went the "extra mile" to ensure our stay was the best. The B&B atmosphere was very pleasant. The breakfasts by Ingrid were delicious and the room decor (we stayed in the Premium room) was perfect. Hans was very informative regarding local activities. For the morning we departed early, they provided coffee, juice, yogurt, apples and hot blueberry muffins. Hans prepares tasty hot muffins daily. The guests frequently gathered on the front porch to share backgrounds or just to enjoy the mountain views, or the occasional deer that wanders by. The location is great - just a block from main street shopping and restaurants. My wife and I hightly recommend the China Clipper Inn and will stay there again.

Stay was wonderful

5 am August 21, 2012

B&B Customer service 800 number was terrible. Billing was messed up. Would not help with credit and neeed to have Chase Bank get involved because the customer service refused to help, after I was told to call back if I had a billing issue.

One night is not enough!

4,6 am August 20, 2012

This is my 5th stay at the China Clipper Inn - 4 with the previous owners and my 1st with the new owners, who are delightful! I love visiting Ouray and this Inn is the only place I stay, since discovering it several years ago. You won't be disappointed! Book and enjoy! - steven baumhardt

An outstanding stay with the most hospitable owners!!!

5 am August 20, 2012

We have stayed at other bed & breakfast inns, but none as wonderful as this one! The hospitality of Hans and Ingrid was above outstanding. They both went out of their way to make us feel at home, made great dining and hiking recommendations, and breakfast was fabulous!! Hans recommended a hike (Sutton Mike) that became the highlight of our trip!! Our stay in Ouray was only a few days, but we'll definitely be back to stay in this lovely inn!!

Traveling Texans

5 am August 12, 2012

Wonderful B&B. Hans and Ingred were excellent innkeepers and very gracious when we experienced a health challenge while staying at their property.

Quiet, relaxing stay

4,2 am August 10, 2012

We stayed at the China Clipper to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The owners were wonderful and made a great breakfast.

Great Place to Stay

4,6 am August 09, 2012

We had a wonderful stay at the China Clipper. It was very nice to be so close to downtown and all the restaurants.

Home Away From Home

4,8 am Juli 31, 2012

For our 20th Anniversary we decided to depart from our usual cheap hotel vacation and stay at a B&B. The China Clipper is the third B&B we have ever stayed at, and is by far the best. The room was absolutely beautiful, the owners cordial and friendly, and the breakfast excellent (their homemade muffins are to die for). The location is within walking distance of all restaurants and shops while still providing a sense of seclusion. The other guests were very friendly and we enjoyed many interesting conversations with couples from around the U.S. We highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a quaint and friendly place to stay while enjoying one of the most beautiful areas of the Rocky Mountains.

Exceptional Anniversary Experience

5 am Juli 28, 2012

We chose the China Clipper Inn for our 35th wedding anniversary celebation and are extremely pleased with our experience. Hans and Ingrid were wonderful hosts and the room far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to our next visit and highly recommend the China Clipper Inn to anyone planning a stay in Ouray.

Wonderful Stay

5 am Juli 21, 2012

We just can't say enough great things about the China Clipper. The rooms were super clean, breakfast was great and the staff was so helpful. This is the only place to stay in Ouray!! They exceeded all our expectations!!!

Mountain Home

4,6 am Juli 17, 2012

Stayed 4 nights in the Captain's Quarters with a balcony facing the mountains. We loved it! The room is quite large, beautifully decorated, very clean and quiet. The bed was so comfortable I slept better here than I do at home and I have a back injury. As for the breakfast it was excellent and we found out why. Hans, the owner/innkeeper worked in 5 restaurants and it shows. He does all the cooking/baking and his muffins are wonderful! They both have the right personalities for this kind of work: warm, outgoing, entertaining and humorous. My wife and I have traveled extensively including other countries and once in a while we stay in a place that we think is unique; this is one of them. Ouray is a regular destination for us and we plan on staying at the China Clipper from now on. Five stars for Hans and Ingrid!

The Nixon wedding party

5 am Juli 11, 2012

We had about 8 rooms with our guests and, without fail, they were VERY happy with the rooms, Hans and Ingrid and the breakfasts! Thank you for your warm hospitality and excellence!

July 2, 2012

5 am Juli 06, 2012

Everything was great. Rooms, food, hosts, and location. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Love the China Clipper

5 am Juli 05, 2012

The China Clipper was a great find. The owners were hospitable and charming. The B&B was quaint, clean and comfortable. The food was exceptional and delicious. Hans can really cook up a wonderful breakfast. Loved the personal touch with the roses and the chocolates. Thank you for making our 18th Wedding Anniversary so special.

China Clipper Inn

4,2 am Juli 04, 2012

The innkeepers were very friendly and had a lot of local insight on hiking, 4 wheeling, and the surrounding areas. Excellent cooking, the breakfasts were delicious with great variety. We would definitely love to visit again.

Can't wait to return - again!

5 am Juli 02, 2012

This is our second stay at the China Clipper Inn...and it never fails us! The hosts are extremely accomodating, the Inn is absolutely gorgeous and peaceful and the rooms are exquisitely clean! So peaceful and everything within walking distance from the Inn. After 2 nights at the China Clipper we traveled to Durango...which was noisy, crowded and too much like the big city from where we came! Longed for the peace of the China Clipper Inn! Cannot wait to get back once more!!!

Outstanding B and B

5 am Juni 25, 2012

We had stayed at the China Clipper before. We were so impressed with everything about this property and its proprieters. We'd say nearly perfect since "perfect" in our mind is an impossible achievement. Can't think of a single way to improve our stay. Thanks Hans and Ingrid!

We'll stay here again!!!

5 am Juni 22, 2012

A wonderful place, with wonderful hosts and a great location. We spent our days on our ATV, after a filling, delicious breakfast each day. The inn has a front porch with a beautiful view, accompanied by the rustling of aspen leaves. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Fantastic B & B in a marvelous setting!

4,8 am Juni 18, 2012

If you are traveling in SW Colorado, you must include a drive in and out of Ouray. What a setting! And the China Clipper exceeded our expectations in every way. It's located a block off the main street which made it quiet but convenient. The place was extremely clean and the B&B owners were very friendly and helpful. We considered the price to be more than reasonable and we'd highly recommend the China Clipper to all.

a very nice stay

3,8 am Juni 13, 2012

The Captain's Quarters room is exceptionally nice, but then so is the price. We like to stay in b & b's for many reasons. ONe is a really nice breakfast. Theirs were only so-so. Cooked eggs, fried potatoes and bacon in buffet trays. Packaged yogurt, cereal, instant oatmeal available. The fresh muffins were nothing to write home about. The hosts are great, though, and a beautiful setting. A lot to pay for a only satisfactory breakfast/

Lodging in Ouray, CO.

3,4 am Juni 04, 2012

Pleasant B&B in Ouray. Hans and Ingrid extremely gracious and helpful hosts. Only the most expensive rooms have a mountain view which was a disappointment. Our room overlooked the hot tub which could have been a problem but wasnt for our stay. Our private deck was not really too private since it overlooks the hot tub and there is another private deck close by. Very nice breakfast. Great location, just off the main street.

The Cloud Room Experience

4,8 am Juni 03, 2012

My husband and I loved our week-end at the China Clipper. Our room was luxuriously comfortable, the surrounding areas were tasteful, and the breakfast was terrific! We especially appreciated the helpful suggestions of Hans who helped us make the most of our time in this beautiful country.

Great place

4,8 am Juni 01, 2012

Ingrid and Hans are delightful people who have a real knack for making guests feel welcome and comfortable. The inn and location are top-notch as well. We love going back here.

Had a Great Stay Thanks:

5 am Mai 23, 2012

The rooms were nice, the service was great, great location, my wife and I really had a nice stay.

Wonderful B and B!

4,4 am Mai 02, 2012

A view from every window and the private balcony paired with a fireplace and a full size hot tub for two in our room made this a delightful escape. Furniture is beautiful and unique. Breakfast was wonderful.

Great B&B in Great town

4,6 am Mai 01, 2012

Loved our one night stay at this little B&B. Home was beautiful, location was great, breakfast was delicious (yogurt, cereal, fruit, eggs benedict). Would love to stay in one of the fancier rooms for an even better view.

A perfect stay in Ouray!

5 am März 20, 2012

How lucky I was to find such a lovely inn, with wonderful hosts, on my first trip to Ouray!!!

Best B&B !!

5 am März 16, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the house. There were always fresh towels, empty trash cans and full toilet paper! Hans and Ingrid are two awesome people! When we were wondering around the shops and restaurants in town and someone would as k where we are staying and we said "China Clipper Inn", they'd say "that is the best place in town and Hans and Ingrid are the best!!" We really felt at home there. We just miight have to make that our annual anniversary get-away!

23 Year Wedding Anniversary

4,0 am März 04, 2012

This was a simple get a way weekend for us. Celebrating our 23rd anniversary we made the trek to Ouray for a wonderful weekend. The owners were fantastic. The room was clean and beautiful. I just loved it. The morning breakfast was spectacular. The homemade muffins were the best. We look forward to staying there again. Everything was close and we walked to everything. Thank you so much for a great anniversary weekend.

Always a treat!

4,6 am März 01, 2012

My husband and I have stayed at the Clipper many times over the years. The inn was designed, built, and decorated meticulously by the previous owners. Hans and Ingrid have continued to offer a high quality experience. Breakfasts are delicious and served in the cheery dining room. Ingrid's muffins or cookies at the desk are a special treat!

Quick Stay

5 am Februar 13, 2012

We recently had the chance to visit Ouray on a quick trip from Las Vegas to Denver and were able to stay at the China Clipper for one night. Hans is very friendly and a very good cook. He is also very helpful with ideas for food and entertainment in Ouray. They completly understand the importance of customer satisfaction. We had a small hiccup during our stay, and Hans went above and beyond what was required to rectify the situation. We would definitetly recommend staying here if you get the oppurtunity.

Return visit still great

5 am Februar 09, 2012

We first visited China Clipper Inn about 6 months after Hans and Ingrid bought the property. We found the Inn to be beautiful and well kept, the rooms each carefully decorated, and the amenities pleased us very much. 2 years later, Hans and Ingrid have continued their high level of service and friendliness. Spotless rooms, upgraded TVs, a new hot tub, and the best breakfast in town. Usual breakfast practice is a buffet of eggs, potatoes, and ham, with plentiful additional options. If you are fortunate to be there on a lighter occupancy day, Hans will prepare Eggs Benedict for you, and he excels at this. We highly recommend this establishment.

We will be coming back again for sure!

4,8 am Januar 19, 2012

The stay was totally worth the money. China Clipper Inn is only a short walk away from anything you will need in town. The rooms were very nice and the hosts were extremely helpful when it came to giving their advice on things to do around town. We were both blown away by the very delicious full breakfast as well. Instead of paying $25 to $30 a day for a great start to the morning at a breakfast restaurant in town, put that money towards your stay at the China Clipper Inn. Nothing beats waking up, walking a few steps to a wonderful scenic dining area, grabbing some tasty coffee, and enjoying a fantastic breakfast with your loved one(s).

Great stay

4,6 am Januar 03, 2012

Stayed two nights in the Captains quarters. Really really nice! I would recommend this place to anyone. Hans and Ingrid are very nice and helpful.

China Clipper

4,4 am Dezember 15, 2011

Our wedding anniversary is December 31. Besides the fun atmosphere of New Year's Eve and the beauty of Ouray in the winter we love staying at the China Clipper to celebrate our anniversary because it is a beautiful house, clean, quiet, and friendly. This will be our 3rd time staying and we don't really want to stay any where else!

A stay in winter's wonderland.

4,0 am Dezember 12, 2011

The stay was very pleasant,innkeepers were very nice. Wait for breakfast too long. Did not offer wine or beer for afternoon beverage for relaxation. Would stay there again if in the area.

Wonderful B&B in Ouray

5 am November 29, 2011

This was my first time ever staying in a B&B and wow was I BLOWN away. The innkeepers, Hans and Ingrid are the best! They even had me join their Thanksgiving dinner (which was totally unexpected). This property is beautiful and it's location can't be beat. I will never stay anywhere else in Ouray, I feel in love with the China Clipper! Thank you so much Hans and Ingrid!

Great stay!

5 am November 19, 2011

We would recommend the China Clipper B&B to our friends and anyone wanting quality and great amenities. We enjoyed our room and the excellent breakfast. Hans was especially helpful.

stay here when you go to Ouray.

4,8 am November 06, 2011

We only stayed one night here - as we live in Telluride, but if ever we were to stay in Ouray again I would undoubtedly book our nights here. The innkeepers were lovely & kind and served a delicious breakfast in the am that had something for everyone. Amazing home made muffins in mouth watering flavors were a highlight. Room was clean and had nautical themed decor that was not too over the top. Right in the middle of town but off the main street, we were happy to park out car for the night and walk about town.


4,2 am Oktober 28, 2011

Very nice. We stayed here last year and felt the breakfasts were better last year"

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 am Oktober 18, 2011

Our stay at the China Clipper Inn exceeded my expectations. I am a very picky person and loved this B&B. Everything was clean and well kept. I love the decor in the room and in the hall and sitting area. Hans and Ingrid were great hostess. Not suppose to tell this part but they even let us check in early. This is not the norm because the housekeeper has to have plenty time to clean. But thank you Hans and Ingrid for letting us check in early. Everything was awesome and we will be back.

Lovely home and hosts

4,0 am Oktober 07, 2011

The hosts are very hospitable and friendly. Our room was very clean and cozy. Next time we visit Ouray we will definitely stay with Hans and Ingrid again.

September 2011 Stay

5 am Oktober 06, 2011

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Hans and Ingrid were fantastic. Highly recommend everyone try this B & B.

Loved this Inn!!

4,8 am Oktober 04, 2011

We had stayed here many years ago and loved that the current host/hostess have maintained the same charming, clean, classy yet comfortable standards that we enjoyed during prior stays! The food was amazing!

Really nice place, really nice people

4,8 am Oktober 03, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at the China Clipper Inn, though it was too short. The place is fantastic, with a great private courtyard. Our room was big and clean and had a nice vibe. The whole place has that same nice vibe, with Hans and Ingrid being exceptionally welcoming and accommodating. I'd read about the great breakfasts before we arrived, and we weren't disappointed with the freshly made peach muffins and lots of other things to choose from.

Ouray Gem

4,4 am September 28, 2011

We had the pleasure of staying at the China Clipper Inn last weekend. We were greeted by Hans, who showed us around the inn and to our lovely room. The inn is conveniently located within a block of the main street, restaurants, and shops. We enjoyed the hot tub our first evening there....very relaxing! We stayed two nights, and both mornings we were treated to delicious breakfasts: Blueberry pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, ham, fresh fruit, juices, and homemade peach muffins! Ingrid is a wonderful cook and hostess! The other guests were warm and friendly. Overall, our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. We will most definitely visit again!

Cold breakfast and dirty carpets

2,0 am September 28, 2011

Very nice facility, however on the edge of poor maintenance. The carpets in our room were very dirty. Towels were stiff, too much starch I guess. We saw the staff at breakfast and that was it. The breakfast was cold scrambled eggs, cold ham, and cinnamon rolls made from a package. We will go back to the Saint Elmo next time.

China Cliper - a superb choice in Ouray

5 am September 26, 2011

An excellent experience all around. Hosts Ingrid and Hans were very nice and willing to accommodate reasonable requests. The breakfasts they prepared during our stay were the best we have experienced in B&B's.

Wonderful stay!

4,4 am September 24, 2011

China Clipper Inn was wonderful. Innkeepers Hans & Ingrid were so friendly. We stayed in the "First mate's quarters" & the bed was so comfortable! Wonderful B & B!!

Ouray Stay

4,8 am September 24, 2011

The China Clipper Inn is an awesome B&B. Hans provided excellent meals and wonderful muffins. I would stay there again without giving it a second thought. Very comfortable.

A real gem!

3,2 am September 22, 2011

This is a wonderful place to stay. It was built as an inn and looks like an old New England Victorian home. Decor is mostly traditional, although the original owner was in the Navy, so there is a nautical theme throughout. There are only 11 rooms on two levels. Breakfast is served in an elegant dining area on a beautiful hardwood dining room table. Both days, you had a choice of typical continental fare as well as potatoes, scrambled eggs and meat. The front porch is enclosed and has a glass wall and also is used for seating. There is a very comfortable sitting area with fireplace and a hottub out on the back deck. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Ours had a fireplace and four poster bed. There was a writing desk and a comfy easy chair. Innkeepers are very friendly and engaging and answer all your questions with a smile. We liked it a lot and would return.

Labor Day stay

4,4 am September 19, 2011

The China Clipper Inn was a very nice experience. The rooms were very exceptional and the host were very friendly. We would definately stay there again.

Another great stay

5 am September 17, 2011

My husband and I returned again this year to the China Clipper during our stay in Ouray. Hans and Ingrid are wonderful innkeepers, making sure their guests are comfortable. The rooms are immaculate and have great ambiance at a very reasonable price. Breakfast is always a treat we look forward to in the morning! Can't wait to come back again for a visit.

A wonderful Experience!

4,6 am September 15, 2011

The owners were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were absolutely fantastic! Hans is a great cook and has years of experience in the restaurant business which shows in his breakfasts. We will go back to the China Clipper when we can and we will recommend it to everyone we know!

A Wonderful Time!

5 am September 12, 2011

Our welcome was warm and friendly. Ingrid showed us our room and invited us to help ourselves to fresh homemade muffins and coffee. It was raining as we were going to explore downtown and we were immediately given umbrellas to assist us. They anticipated our every need and even my husband said it felt like a home--not a hotel.

clean, charming, and squeaky

3,8 am September 09, 2011

Our room and all the common areas were imaculately clean. Hans is a good cook and he and Ingrid are delightful hosts. Unfortunately, the bed was VERY squeaky.

We'll be Back!

5 am September 08, 2011

Host & Hostess very friendly, personable, helpful, and knowledgeable about things happening around town. Appreciated the suggestions on dining & recreational vehicle rental. The breakfasts were delicious, and the inn was very clean & fresh and inviting - very cozy & comfortable with a wonderful atmosphere! Also very quiet and peaceful - great for relaxing.

The Clipper Experience

4,8 am September 08, 2011

Lovely room - The Captains Quarters. We loved having the private deck and two sinks. Our only disappointment was the Jeep tour the inn recommended. The driver never showed up.

Lovely inn in Ouray

4,4 am September 05, 2011

We wish we had scheduled more time there so we could have taken advantage of the common areas and hot tub.

China Clipper Inn

5 am September 04, 2011

If you are going to Ouray, Colorado this should be your first choice for accommodations. Hans and Ingrid were the perfect hosts and went out of their way to make our anniversary trip one to remember. I highly recommend the China Clipper Inn and will definitely return for another visit. One of the best B&B's we have ever been too!


5 am September 01, 2011

Hans was a terrific host, and he immediately made us feel welcome. The muffing were amazing - best we ever had: Apple Cinnamon, Cherry Chocolate. Made us want to stay lots longer. We'll be back!

Best bed and breakfast in southern Colorado!

5 am August 27, 2011

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and loved everything about the spotless Inn. Hans and Ingrid were so friendly and helpful!!!!!! We felt like me were leaving old friends at the end of our stay. We stayed in the First Mates Quarters and it was beautiful with a gorgeous view. Will stay again whenever we have the chance and recommend it to all friends!!!!!! We would love them to publish a cookbook with their muffin recipes! H and G from Phoenix

Outstanding China Clipper Inn

5 am August 19, 2011

Hans and Ingrid run an absolutely outstanding inn - in every respect. They are very friendly and helpful as well as entertaining. We will return.

Couldn't have been better.

5 am August 18, 2011

This is my second stay. The first time was with the previous owner. Obviously, it was good or I wouldn't have come back. Anyway, the new owners have taken it up a notch. Everything was excellent.


4,4 am August 13, 2011

We stayed one night recently at the China Clipper Inn and we loved it! The Inn is just beautiful, and our room (Golden West) was very spacious, clean & inviting. We relaxed on the porch with our complimentary cup of tea and just listened to the birds singing in the mountain air. The hosts were very gracious & friendly. The breakfast was outstanding - cheesy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, fresh fruit, homemade muffins to die for! We had an awesome experience and definitely plan to return to the China Clipper Inn on our next trip to Ouray.

China Clipper Inn

4,4 am August 11, 2011

Hans and Ingrid were terrific hosts--helpful and enthusiastic in their recommendations for places to eat and other activities--and the accommodations were lovely. We enjoyed the hot tub after a day of driving and hiking. Ouray is a dramatic setting that we used as a center for our activities over a long and delightful weekend, and we think China Clipper was the best lodging in town.

A Great Place to Stay

4,6 am August 08, 2011

Hans and Ingrid were wonderful hosts. Everything was first class. I will stay there again.

China Clipper Inn

3,8 am August 06, 2011

The home is lovely and our room, The First Mate's Quarters, was outstanding...large, beautifully appointed, quiet, lovely view, and thoroughly comfortable. Internet was excellent. Breakfast was very good. Would have liked wine and cheese or an afternoon snack. Will certainly go back on our next trip to Ouray.

Would definitely stay at the China Clipper Inn again

4,2 am August 06, 2011

We stayed there two nights this past month. Hans and his wife were gracious hosts in this excellent find. Our room was nice, the breakfasts were great and the location was perfect.

Anniversary Stay

5 am Juli 31, 2011

My husband and I stayed 5 days at the China Clipper for our 36th wedding anniversay! It was my husband firt stay at a B&B. We both LOVED everything about it. But the daily fresh home make muffins made by Hahns the Inkeeper were hard to leave. And the cool weather. I am planning a return visit next summer with my sisters!

Hans and Ingrid are awesome

5 am Juli 31, 2011

5 stars all around. Went here on my honeymoon and stayed in the captain's quarters for nearly a week. Hans was uber-helpful in finding us the best hikes, the best hotsprings, and just having an amazing time everyday. The B&B is maticulate and the rooms are large and pretty. The B&B is a short, short walk to everything in town, but is off the main street so it's nice and quiet at night (with a gorgeous view of the western mountains). Can't wait to come back next time!

China Clipper in Ouray, CO

4,4 am Juli 26, 2011

Stayed 4 nights to do some hiking in the Ouray area. The owners are very nice and the breakfasts were delicious with plenty to keep us going through our hikes.

Great place to get away

4,0 am Juli 25, 2011

We love the China Ciipper Inn. This was our second trip because we enjoyed the first one so much and we were not disappointed. The place is spotless, breakfasts are substantial and delicious, rooms comfortable after a long day of outdoor activity.

Great place to stay!

4,6 am Juli 23, 2011

The room was very nice and clean. Hans and Ingrid were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

My wonderful experience.

4,0 am Juli 22, 2011

I ventured to Ouray with a friend for just a weekend getaway. My stay at the China Clipper was great.Our room was comfortable and the food was excellent. Hans and Ingrid were wonderful. They were available when we needed anything and unobtrusive otherwise. The breakfast was fantastic and the room was great. I would recommend the China Clipper and may stay again sometime. T Flynn

Retirees from NorthCarolina

4,8 am Juli 21, 2011

Hans and Ingrid were so personable and went out of the way to make us feel at home. Each morning, breakfast was a special treat, not your run-of-the-mill continental cuisine. Homemade goodies were wonderful. Their bed and breakfast was immaculate. We were within walking distance of everything in the town of Ouray. We felt very comfortable there and were sad when we had to leave.

beautiful B&B in convenient location

3,4 am Juli 21, 2011

great alternative to the chain hotels in town. the owners were very helpful in supplying any information we requested about places to eat/things to do in town and the area.

A Very Pleasant Stay

4,6 am Juli 16, 2011

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Ouray. We were there over the 4th of July weekend and the Inn was full. The innkeepers were always available and met all of our needs, breakfasts were tasty with a variety of foods from which to choose, and the location is in the center of town.

Cajun in the mountains

5 am Juli 13, 2011

This B&B was a pleasent surprise. Ingrid was extremely helpful with things to do, places to eat, and places to see. The room was well done and quite comfortable. I would highly reccomend the China Clipper.

Cozy Mountain Getaway

3,6 am Juli 12, 2011

We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the China Clipper Inn. Our room was upscale, comfortable and clean. The coffee pot, mini-fridge and microwave amenities were also nice. Beautiful views and a relaxing atmosphere. Hans and Ingrid are fun and friendly. They go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. We highly recommend this B&B and would definately stay there again if we travel to Ouray,CO. Regards~ Laura & Neill :)

An excellent experience

4,6 am Juli 05, 2011

The innkeepers, Hans and Ingrid, were wonderful hosts. They were friendly and helpful. We went to Ouray for hiking and sightseeing, and Hans provided excellent guidance for these activities, as well as dining. We look forward to our next stay at the China Clipper Inn

Lovely stay!

4,8 am Juli 01, 2011

The China Clipper Inn in Ouray, CO, is the loveliest B&B we have ever stayed at! The entire house and each individual room is decorated beautifully--warm, inviting, and charming. Ingrid and Hans are terrific hosts, welcoming us warmly and making us feel right at home. Their generous, homemade breakfast was delicious and served in a lovely manner and setting. It was truly a delightful experience!

Totally enjoyed our stay

4,8 am Juni 22, 2011

We spent two nights at the inn. Even though we had the least expensive room, it was roomy, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The entire inn is very sophistically appointed without being "cute". The breakfast was excellent, consisting of a meat (sausage or bacon), an egg dish, pancakes or potatoes, muffins, toast, cold cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices, coffee and tea, none of which were overly sweet and gooey. The location is within a short walk to the main street’s shops and restaurants. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. One of the nicest B&Bs we have stayed at.

Look no further if you plan to stay in Ouray

4,8 am Juni 21, 2011

The innkeepers, Hans, Ingrid and Charlotte are delightful, their inn is beautiful and they serve marvelous breakfasts. What a treat is was for us to be able to spend a week there.

Fantastic place and nice people!

5 am Juni 21, 2011

The host and hostess were top of the line and very nice. We were only there for a very short time, but China Clipper made us feel like we were coming home. I hope to come back and stay again!

Very lucky find

5 am Juni 15, 2011

The decor and comfort of our room and the inn in general was only exceeded by the hospitality of Hans and Ingrid. Also, the breakfast was superb! Hope to get back there soon.


4,8 am Juni 15, 2011

My husband food the China Clipper Inn on the Internet. We pleasantly surprised when we drove up to the location. Stepping inside told us that it had been the right choice. We met the owner Hans, what a people person! Wonderful breakfast too.. All in all we can't say enough good things about the China Clipper!! You will have to experience it for yourselves! We will deffently be back! Great job to Hans & Ingrid! Thank you! :)

Great place to stay

5 am Juni 13, 2011

Hans and Engret are great host And do all they can for you. Rooms and Hot Tub are exceptionally clean and the breakfast are very good. We will return. Not one complaint!!!!!!!!!

Ouray one night stay

3,0 am Juni 07, 2011

Very beautiful home, pleasant stay, but a posted explanation of how to work the TV would have helped. Also I could not use the hot tub; it wasn't clean.

Great Place

5 am Juni 01, 2011

Welcomed by the Owner's. Great food, Convenient location, beautiful Place, clean room, great ameneties Owner's went out of their way to make it memorable. Nice size room, walked everywhere, Just parked the car and relaxed.

Wonderful Inn, Wonderful Innkeepers!

4,8 am Mai 05, 2011

My husband and I stayed at The China Clipper for our 25th wedding anniversary. Everything about The China Clipper is perfect, from the cozy, beautiful rooms to the impeccable service that Hans and Ingrid give. It was a wonderful experience. What a pleasure to have very fresh and tasty food cooked by Hans. His homemade muffins are to die for! Not to mention the Eggs Benedict! I will recommend this charming place to all my friends and family that travel to Ouray.

wonderful place.

5 am April 28, 2011

I would recommend the China clipper anyone. Our stay there was just perfect.

Wonderful B&B

4,6 am April 28, 2011

We stayed at the China Clipper Inn for 3 nights in April 2011. It was a wonderful experience. Hans and Ingrid are so friendly and attentive to your every need. The breakfast was great and the room was too. Can't wait to come back this summer for another stay. R.D & M.D.

Great stay

5 am April 27, 2011

I have to say that my expectations were great but the experience was even greater. Because the slow season we actually got upgraded to an even nicer room. Very clean and cozy feeling throughout the property! Hans and Ingrid are great innkeepers and will try to accomodated all your desires. Great value and great location! The views from the rooms were breathtaking.

A wonderful place to stay!

5 am April 20, 2011

We enjoyed a lovely night at the China Clipper Inn. The home is beautifully decorated. Our room was very clean and our bed very comfortable. The included breakfast was delicious! Our hosts were very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely stay here again!

Very clean and relaxing!

4,8 am Februar 22, 2011

Wonderful Stay!

4,6 am Februar 16, 2011

Stayed here for Valentine's weekend, the host and hostess were amazing! They made you feel like you were in your own home. The B&B itself is beautiful! Wonderful breakfasts, private and peaceful, we would definitely stay there again!

relaxing getaway

4,0 am Februar 14, 2011

When we checked in at the China Clipper we were upgraded to their best room. It was very large and comfortable, which was great because the weather was very cold and we spent most of our time in the room. The jacuzi tub was wonderful! It was great to have a selection of DVD's we could watch in our room. Our only disappointment was that it is a little pricey, but we needed a time away from normal "life" so we splurged.

Most Enjoyable 3 Days

4,2 am Dezember 30, 2010

During our post-Christmas trip to Ouray, my family and I stayed at the China Clipper Inn. It is a lovely B&B with charming hosts. The rooms were absolutely marvelous; comfortable and immaculate. It features warm, cozy sitting rooms, a hot tub and ample buffet-style breakfast (the muffins were exceptionally good!). All thanks to Hans and Ingrid. Best Regards, Ray

Loved it!

4,4 am Dezember 21, 2010

This was our first B&B experience and we had a wonderful stay. The Inn is lovely and the host and hostess were cordial and helpful.

Delightful 2 days in Ouray

We stayed at the China Clipper Inn for 2 days as part of an extended tour of the Four Corners Area. The China Clipper Inn was absolutely delightful, and the host and hostess, Hans and Ingrid, were so helpful. We enjoyed the charming room, delicious breakfasts, and special decor. We would be delighted to stay again.

Wonderful innkeepers!

4,6 am Oktober 22, 2010

Hans and Ingrid were a delight and my sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was amazing!

fall weekend

4,0 am Oktober 11, 2010

This was our first time staying at the China Clipper but definitely not our last! Our room was great-just the right amount of room and a very reasonable price. The bed was very comfortable-not too hard, not too soft. The breakfasts were yummy, and again, just right, not too much. Hans & Ingrid definitely made sure our stay-and the other guests-was great. I even overheard Hans offering to drive another guest to the airport when he went into "town". We're definitely looking forward to our next visit.

stay in early October

3,8 am Oktober 06, 2010

The innkeepers were very pleasant and helpful. The room was very nice. I will stay there again.

Charming B&B with charming hosts...Ingrid, Hans & Charlotte!

3,6 am September 29, 2010

Everything met or exceeded expectations with the exception of chairs in the room, which fit the decor, but were uncomfortable to sit in for very long. Overall we really enjoyed our visit.

Overnight Getaway

4,8 am September 27, 2010

We've stayed at many different places in Ouray throughout the years and this was our first time at the China Clipper. Very clean, quiet, and user friendly. A building that was actually built to be a bed and breakfast and that made our stay comfortable. Felt right at home as part of the family! It was a few more dollars than a motel and well worth the difference considering the tasty breakfast and great service. We'll be back.

Charming and Pleasant stay

3,8 am September 25, 2010

Everything was great. Breakfast set up was little different from what I expected or am used to for B&B's. It was still good though.

great place

3,4 am September 09, 2010

I Loved This Inn!

5 am August 13, 2010

I loved the China Clipper. I made a reservation on a hunch. I'd just seen the photograph on the Internet. I mean, look at it! This is a quality Inn. It has a cozy traditional feel to it, but the building is not old: windows are tight, floors are solid, everything spiffy! Innkeepers Hans and Ingrid were very cordial. They display that natural skill of European innkeepers. I was following my nose on this trip and Hans kept steering me to just the outings I was in the mood for in the Ouray area. The big open kitchen made an impact on me, not to mention the excellent and varied breakfast fare. I love to travel and I'm always eyeing hotels and inns. I can assure you there's no better place to stay in Ouray. Thank you Hans and Ingrid! Signed, MN

Highly Recommended

4,4 am Mai 21, 2010

My wife and I stayed at the China Clipper for our anniversary weekend and we couldn't of asked for more!! We were blown away as soon as we walked in!! Highly recommend this place for the outstanding customer service, Hans and Ingrid make you feel right at home!!! I can't say enough great things about our experience. Will stay there again next anniversary!!!

What a wonderful experience

5 am März 24, 2010

What a beautiful drive. The town was just as impressive as the Inn. Deer in the park, hot springs for the pool, and everyone in town waves and smiles. Ingrid and Hauns were the best. The cable was out due to the storm so Hauns gave us a room with a Dvd player and let us borrow movies. He also made us a special Eggs Bendict even though we were the only ones there. The next morning the snow was falling fast so we had to get out before we were snowed in. Ingrid whipped us up some scrambled eggs and toast before we knew it. Both Hauns and Igrid made us feel right at home. The room was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend The China Clipper INN.

Fantastic B&B

4,8 am März 15, 2010

Highley recomended. I recently attened a wedding in Ouray and stumbled upon this B&B online. As I was traveling alone I opted for the most basic room on offer and was pleasently suprised. I got a very spacious room with a partial view of the surrounding mountains and a nice four post bed. Several of my friends were lodging at other hotels in the area, so I got a chance to check out the other lodging options. I found that I paid a good 20-50 less a night and got a much better room. My two favorite aspects of this place: - tastefully decorated. Some B&B's try to cram every available space with cheesy nick-nacks and over do it on the floral wall paper. This place got it spot on. Very comfortable and decorated with style. - Very nice owner operators. Hans and Ingrid are a young couple and seem to have real enthusiasim for the buisness. When people enjoy having guests it makes a big difference. Especially in an small B&B.

Great awesome

Chose this B&B online without much knowledge of the location. We were very happy with being off the main road but close to all the restaurants etc. Rooms were very nice and owners made us feel very welcome with some good recommendations and advice on the town. Would certainly stay there again.

Great hosts and beautiful location

5 am Oktober 27, 2009

I simply cannot say enough good things about our stay in Ouray at the China Clipper. The owners, Hans and Ingrid, treated us like family from the moment we arrived. The rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast was delicious. The owners helped us map out a great time in Ouray. I would highly recommend the China Clipper to anyone.

Dutch Hospitality at its finest

5 am Oktober 25, 2009

We got in late due to our work schedules and Hans and Ingrid were very accommodating. The service was great and our room was clean. We were only planning to stay one night but we decided to stay for two! Ouray is a charming town and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were having a great time.

What a difference a DAY makes!

It was the first night with the new owners Han and Ingrid Vander Ploeg. Their energy, Dutch hospitality, and loving family made the stay one we will always cherish! We will be back soon!

A wonderful stay

5 am August 04, 2009

My wife and I enjoyed every moment of our stay at the China Clipper Inn. The hosts/owners were friendly while maintaining a high-level B&B at a relatively inexpecnsive price. We had a great time.

B & B newbies

4,8 am August 03, 2009

This is the first trip where we stayed in B & B's. We were ready for an experience beyond the chain hotels. The China Clipper is a beautiful place, the location is great and Earl & Tricia treated us wonderfully. Really glad we stepped out and tried this.

A Jewel in Ouray

Great B&B, Earl & Tricia are excellent hosts. Convenient, quiet, romantic. Gorgeous mountains, waterfalls. Highly recommend the town and the inn.

Loved the experience of China Clipper

5 am Juli 29, 2009

Our room was very comfortable and outstandingly clean, it was very quiet and sleep came easy on the luxurious bed. A great tasting breakfast every morning was served in the elegant dining room or the sun porch, which we preferred. The entire house was very well decorated with fine antique furniture and wall hangings. I think what made the entire stay the best were the owners, who were fun and interesting to talk to and very helpful with local events.

July 10, 2009 Stay

4,6 am Juli 23, 2009

The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Their inn was comfortable...the food was great! The company of other tourists was very pleasant. How can you not rave about the mountain canyon setting! The price is about right.

Getaway In Colorado Mtns.

5 am Juli 20, 2009

This July was my second visit to this charming Colorado escape. I love sitting on the porch, relaxing and gazing at the tall mountains. Ouray and the quaintness of the inn contribute to a peaceful setting. The inn is well decorated, clean, very,very quiet, one of the nicest I have visited. Ouray itself has lots of activities. Sightseeing, hot springs pool, restaurants, and do rent a jeep and explore the mountain trails. The final touch of my visit was the hospitality of my host Earl and Tricia. Both visits, they have always seen to all my comforts. What a delightful experience, I look forward to my next travel through Colorado. John Sippel Cibolo,Tx

outstanding bed and breakfast stay

4,8 am Juli 14, 2009

We stay in the china clipper in july 2009 and had an unforgetable experience. What a joy it was to stay in such a clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms. The owners are very friendly and eager to point out things to do in such a beautiful surrounding as Ouray is. Easily, one of the nicest stays on any trip I have ever taken. Eagerly will stay at China Clipper again and looking forward to doing so.

Beautiful Victorian Inn

5 am Juni 07, 2009

This was our fourth trip to Ouray and our Third time to stay at the China Clipper Inn. As always the room was large and comfortable. The House was beautiful and completely spotless. Once we parked our car, we did not have to move the car until we checked out. The shops and restaurants are all within walking distance to the Inn. We also were able to walk over to Box Canyon Falls and Cascade Falls. Its a beautiful town and a beautiful Bed and Breakfast.

We love Ouray & The China Clipper Inn

5 am Mai 26, 2009
