|Nestled in the heart of Kemah and close to all the Boardwalk attractions lies the Clipper House Inn & Vineyard. Situated on nearly an acre of manicured gardens are six 1930’s cottages filled with antiques and treasures from the owner’s world travels. Each cottage is named after a famous clipper ship befitting the design of the cottage interior and features plush beds with luxurious linens, pristine private bathrooms, flat screen televisions with DVD, and cozy sitting areas. The result is an exceedingly romantic and soothing environment — perfect for a renewing visit to the bay.
As one of Kemah’s oldest Bed and Breakfasts, the Clipper House Inn is known for its tranquil gardens, unique cottages, and our “Like Staying with Friends” warm and inviting atmosphere.
Ensuring you a most exceptional stay are owners David Skinner and Kristen Hopper and Innkeepers Barbara and Jerry Hopper. Having spent over 20 years traveling the world and staying at B&B’s and luxury hotels on six continents, the owners decided to create a property with the charm and amenities they always looked for…comfortable, charming, friendly, full of flowers, perfectly located, and above all a restful place.
|David is a noted author, internationally known professor and business advisor, yachtsman, and classically trained chef. Kristen had a career in marketing and executive education until the birth of their first child, Makenzie, and is now working on her first book and raising Makenzie. Kristen’s parents Barbara and Jerry Hopper are the resident innkeepers. Prior to the Clipper House Inn they were innkeepers for a ski lodge in Angel Fire, NM.
From reservations at the perfect restaurant, to maps and special complimetary tastings at local wineries, Innkeepers Barbara and Jerry have an uncanny ability to plan a perfect Galveston Bay stay. Guests often have such a wonderful time they don’t want to leave, and depart wanting to come back to this very special place.
