First B&B ever, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Mrs. Barbara was the best, she not only answered all of the numerous questions we had; but she was warm, inviting, and understanding. We've already started planning our next stay. We had the opportunity to stay in the flying cloud and it was like a step back in time,...

We stayed at the Clipper House for our 30th anniversary. Barbara made sure our stay was special and memorable including a personalized bottle of wine from the family winery. It's a very cozy place with a quiet atmosphere within walking distance of everything we had planned to do. Thank you Clipper House; we would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

My husband and I were able to get away for a short getaway, and this B and B could not have been a better choice. Mrs Barbara was very accommodating. The wine cake and breakfast loaf that she left us were both so moist and delicious. The court yard is a great place to have a glass of wine and...
