My husband and I stayed in the Mont Blanc. It was a nice room, but the shower was small and the shower head was right above you. We were able to walk to the boardwalk and watch the boats. Barbara was very kind and welcoming. There is not the typical B&B breakfast. Instead, there is a bowl of fruit and...

Just left The Clipper House Inn in Kemah this past Saturday, July 20, 2013!!! The Most AWESOME experience for 9 of us ladies!!! It was our Annual Cousins Retreat and we rented four of the cottages-----The Flying Cloud and The Challenge which nicely took care of 5 of us---two sisters in the main room (King Bed) Flying Cloud and two...

My family stayed here two nights in the Challenge cottage. It has two bedrooms, perfect for a family of four. It was a pleasant stay. I liked sitting on the deck in the morning and drinking my coffee. They do have a fruit and muffin/bread basket each morning, but if you are hungry, this will not suffice. :)

We stayed in Romance which is small but very clean & comfy for two. Free wine & cheese tasting at winery on site included. Wonderful homemade cakes, muffins, fruit, and a bottle of birthday wine made my birthday special. Barbara offered great tips for local food and fun. PRO: Gracious hosts provide lots of TLC throughout the property. Great location...

My wife and I stayed at the Romance, and thoroughly loved it! The ambiance of the grounds were very nice with the gardens surrounding the premises and the grapevines for the winery also. It is practically right behind T-Bone Tom's so on the weekends you can enjoy the bands from the garden area without dealing with the crowds, and had...

My husband and I stayed in the Flying Cloud cottage for our 7th Anniversary and the stay far exceeded our expectations. The innkeeper, Barbara, made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and was very nice and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary bottle of wine with a personalized label with our names and anniversary date. We...

My wife and I visited the Clipper House for our Wedding Anniversary. GEOGRAPHY & GENERAL AMBIANCE: Cute, individual cottages easily accessible off SH 146 in Kemah. Clean, well-groomed grounds. Short walk to the Boardwalk. Live music played loudly until well after 11pm on Saturday night but, ultimately, wasn't a huge problem. The adjacent winery was a nice touch but was...

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.

My wife loves staying right on the water but I took a chance on these cottages from the pictures I saw at the Clipper House website. Well, my wife loved the location as it was in primary walking distance of the boardwalk and several others retail / business establishments. She and I both loved the antique decor in the cottage...

The Clipper House Inn was perfect for our wedding. Its seriously a magical place. My husbands family lives in Kentucky and up north and my family lives in Texas. They have never met before. I wanted us to have a place we could all get to know each other before the wedding. This place was perfect. The cottages were sooooooo...
