The Clipper Inn (aka China Clipper Inn) was custom designed as an Inn featuring classic details, quality, comfort and privacy. Thirteen rooms are available to guests which provide elegant and luxurious lodging accommodations. Built by Earl Yarbrough, a Navy Commander and avid maritime enthusiast in the 1990's and opened in 1995, the Clipper Inn was designed to emulate it's Victorian historic neighbors and retain the architectural vintage and character of the town. Most of the rooms are named after famous Clipper ships. With fine mountain views from most rooms, the Clipper Inn offers all the intimate amenities of an inn and the conveniences and privacy of a fine hotel. 

A full, made from scratch breakfast can be enjoyed in our charming dining room or at one of our intimate breakfast tables.

Ouray’s renowned Hot Springs Pool is a pleasure anytime of the year. Any season, all-year, you’ll have fun browsing through Ouray’s shops and galleries and dining at the extraordinary restaurants available.
