    I stayed here for fifteen nights in February and March 2009 for Fur Rondy and the Iditarod.  The location is great.  4th street, the main street of Anchorage, is a ten minute walk away.  On the way downtown, you will pass Star the Reindeer and walk through Delany Park.  The walk is very pleasant and I walked it several times a day.  By walking three blocks south you can get on one of Anchorage's well maintained trails.  This trail goes along a creek and connects of with the great coastal trail.  These trails a great for walking, biking and skiing.  The Wildflower would be a great place for a cross country skier to stay.  You would have access to over twenty miles of groomed ski trails with no car needed.  There is a medium size market across the street for quick meals and snacks.  There are probably about one hundred restaurants within a fifteen minute walking radius.  I also walked to the Sullivan Arena to see a hockey game.  Anchorage sidewalks are so well lit there was no problem walking home at 10:30 pm.

    The accommodations are simple and clean.  I had two bedrooms and a bathroom for the winter bargain rate of $79 a night.  This was my first B&B experience so I was a little worried.  Would I be forced to eat breakfast and socialize with a bunch of strangers?  I am used to the anonymity of large hotels so I wasn't sure if I would be comfortable in a small three room B&B.  The hosts were very friendly without being overbearing.  In the beginning they were very polite and professional.  As the days went on and I loosened up they did too.  They are quite amusing.  The night Allen was crashing around the kitchen with the stove was quite amusing.  He was told stoves are self-leveling.  If you rock them back and forth they will level out.   The guys are quite entertaining.  Ask Larry to do a dance for you.  Don't worry, like stoves Larry and Allen are self-leveling and you won't get more of them than you can handle.

    The Wildflower is great.  I am already planing my next visit to Alaska and the Wildflower.

    My friend Chris and I stayed here for three nights during the Iditarod. It's a gorgeous little three-room bed and breakfast. The proprietors are incredibly warm and welcoming and are very flexible with your schedule. The breakfasts are all cooked to order and are gourmet. So cool; they really made this a wonderful experience.

    I haven't stayed here, but my dad has and had great things to say.  Since Dad's not Yelp-savvy, I'll speak on his behalf.  

    My dad chose A Wildflower Inn because of it's proximity to my place (two blocks away).  Why didn't my dad stay with me, you ask?  My place is very small and my baby boy was waking up and crying through the night and my dad is a light sleeper.  That's why.  It's not like I'm a devil child or anything.

    Anyhoo, my dad's room was very quiet and he slept well every night.  He enjoyed the breakfasts the proprietor cooked and the restaurant suggestions he made.  The owner also recommended daily scenic walking routes around the neighborhood and the coastal trail.

    I met my dad at the Inn a few times and it is very clean and nicely decorated.

    I would definately recommend it to out of towners looking for well-priced accommodation in downtown Anchorage.  And they do have beautiful wildflowers in the summer.

    This place is a cozy B&B conveniently located within walking distance of downtown and a small grocery store. The owners Larry and Allan were very nice and we enjoyed chatting with them about the area, their travels, and how they came to be B&B owners. The other guests were nice too - much older than us (we're 30) but also very adventurous (guess you have to be to end up in Alaska). The B&B is quaint and a bit small - the rooms were a tight squeeze for us since we came with a ton of gear to go camping/backpacking and that all needed to be sorted when we arrived. Larry and Allan were gracious enough to allow us to ship a box to the B&B ahead of time which was really nice of them.

    Breakfast was a highlight here - freshly cooked. I think we had a swedish pancakes one day and a caramelized french toast the other. Plus eggs, cereals, yogurt, fruit, etc.

    I would definitely recommend staying here as it's very cost effective when compared to the local hotels. The owners were really caring and the place itself while small is very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean.

    Tip for Anchorage - go for a run or walk along the Coastal trail - it's so beautiful and not too busy. We didn't see any amazing wildlife (moose etc.) but we've been told sometimes you do run into some neat creatures.

    We have stayed at A Wildflower Inn many times.
    Larry and Allan are excellent hosts and breakfast is always delicious.
    The bedrooms are roomy and the added sitting room (attached) is great.
    The location is good as well. Although it is downtown, it is very quick and easy to get to from the airport.
    I would totally recommend A Wildflower Inn.
