We stayed here during our honeymoon and loved the hospitality, delicious food, and the wonderful staff and owners who were knowledgeable about the area and hikes. Very romantic place. Get the Witch of the Waves room!

From the moment Ingrid answered the phone to take my reservation, I knew we'd chosen the right place for our stay in Ouray. Everything about the China Clipper Inn was enjoyable----from the friendly, caring staff to our well-appointed room (Sovereign of the Sea) to the marvelous from-scratch breakfast we were treated to each morning. The inn is also conveniently located...

Spent 4 nights here and will come back again and again. It felt like my own home. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The common area was great. It was fun getting to know the other guests there. The breakfast was amazing. Excellent food and different every day. The owner/hosts were like new friends. They made sure you had everything...

The room was great. Very clean and beautifully appointed. I liked the nautical/china motif. The breakfast was outstanding and our hostess Pat was great. She was very helpful and accommodating. I can't wait to stay again.

Thanks to the Innkeepers for a marvelous stay. We rarely do B&B's because we make poor guests with cardiac issues. But our travel agent Roxanne Sisman said we really needed to try this one. She was right.

The place is beautiful and perfect. The rooms are well kept and the owners go above and beyond what you would expect. They make breakfast each morning that is delicious and filling enough to sustain an entire day of exploring the area. Will definitely stay again!

We so enjoyed our four night stay at this charming B&B. The staff was so friendly and eager to make our stay pleasant. The breakfasts were delicious, and the room was clean and comfortable. The sitting room/library was sweet and quiet, and the hot tub a bonus. We look forward to our next stay. Missing those breakfasts! John and Shelley

Gorgeous, friendly, clean, comfortable. It was like staying with good friends (who just happen to have a gorgeous house in one of the most beautiful little towns in America). This had the feel of a real, old-fashioned boarding house in a gold-boom town. Ingrid and staff were awesome in every way. They are all just really great people. It really...

Lovely B&B, from the warm greeting to our fond farewell. The decor is Victorian, but is actually all new construction. We stayed two nights and both breakfasts were wonderful. The hot tub, located in a beautiful little garden, was an unexpected bonus. The bed was very comfortable, with hypo-allergenic bedding. Despite the very warm days outside, we didn't need the...

This has to be the best place to stay in Ouray! The staff are internationally versed and accommodating. Ingrid is awesome. The coffee is great and the breakfast (very fresh) was a delight for the three days there. Save room for the fresh muffins!
