This was our first visit to Ouray, Colorado and found the China Clipper Inn B&B! Ingrid and Hans are the Inn Keepers and are doing a great job!! Our room was beautifully decorated, warm, clean, and comfy. The whole house is very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. While Ingrid and Hans can't be there every minute, they were just phone call...

After three years staying at three different motels in Ouray, my husband and I were deciding where to stay for our latest visit. I had seen the China Clipper Inn on our daily walks around town over the previous years, so I decided to book our stay there. Four years later we would not stay anywhere else. Hans and Ingrid...

My wife and I spent our 47th wedding anniversary with Hans and Ingrid at their delightful China Clipper Inn. The accommodations were excellent, the breakfasts delicious and the advice on local hiking trails was right on. Most of all, we just enjoyed meeting these wonderful folks and staying in their delightful establishment. Here's looking forward to a return visit.

We stayed 2 nights at the Clipper. It is only one block off the Main Street of Ouray which makes it simple to leave the car parked and walk to most any business or attraction in the downtown area of Ouray. The Inn was clean and well kept. Our room, the Golden West, was on the ground floor so no...

If I could give the China Clipper more than 5 stars I would, we had such a great stay here! We stayed here for several nights recently, and had a wonderful time! Hans and Ingrid could not have been more pleasant or helpful to us. The breakfasts were outstanding - the peach pancakes, the strawberry chocolate muffins - I could...

Ingrid and Hans were very accommodating with our booking error. This place was magnificent. True Victorian architecture and antiques. We loved their great tips on trails, restaurants and soaking facilities. We will be back to little Switzerland to stay at the China Clipper Inn!

Awesome experience in every way! Hans and Ingrid were as helpful and considerate as could be. Our time in Ouray was enhanced by the wonderful experience of the China Clipper Inn. We will return and I highly recommend this B and B over any other facility I've every frequented in Ouray!
