Beautiful grounds surround your cozy cottage. Inn keeper ensures your stay is memorable with fresh breads and a wine tasting certificate. Great location that's walking distance to all points of interest.

Went here for our first anniversary and was extremely happy. Great location and value! We will be back someday soon! The winery is well worth the visit and be sure to buy plenty. We are out after two weeks and already wishing we had more to drink!

Great location, cottages are beautiful, service superior! The inner keeper is so nice and outgoing she makes you feel right at home. There is not one thing left undone from the roses, bubble bath, personal wine bottle to the chocolate cake. The fruit basket and homemade break is awesome, you will love your stay so much you will not want... More

My wife and I stayed at the Clipper House for our 20th wedding anniversary weekend - lived in LaPorte in the early 90s then moved away. We hadn't seen the area in 18 years. Wow!

Clipper House Inn is a small "Eden". Beautiful, relaxing, within walking distance of Boardwalk and very friendly and accommodating host and hostess. Thanks so much for everything Barbara and Jerry. The Winery was 'intoxicating'. Thanks Dee for putting up with the 'crazy cajuns'. Don't leave the winery without at least one bottle of their wine. There are so many to... More
