The China Clipper Inn is a fantastic mountain lodge and bed-and-breakfast in the heart of Ouray. Tourists who stay in this “Switzerland of America” hotel often come for the local sights, including Box Canyon City Park, Cascade Falls, the Ouray Alchemist Museum, and the Wright Opera House.
This establishment does not allow children 11 and under or pets in the accommodations.
The China Clipper Inn was built from the ground up in the 1990s and opened in 1995 by Earl Yarbrough, a Navy Commander, and keen nautical enthusiast. The majority of the units honor notable Clipper ships with marine names. Yarbrough also wanted to preserve the town’s traditional Victorian aesthetic.
A complimentary full daily breakfast, a patio, a hot tub, and a garden are just a few amenities offered at the inn. Guests who drive themselves can use the easy-to-reach and free parking spaces. Wi-Fi is available in all the rooms and each of the common areas.
Winter visitors like to stay at this location due to its proximity to places to do cross-country and downhill skiing and other cold-weather sports like snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
The property was built with care to give guests privacy, peace, and a high level of quality. There are 12 rooms for guests to choose from, each beautiful and stylish. The China Clipper Inn combines the seclusion and comforts of a luxury hotel with the personal atmosphere of a boutique lodge. All rooms offer air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and a TV.
