This small inn in downtown Anchorage has classic B&B charm: quilts, flowers, a white picket fence—plus a delicious breakfast from gracious hosts.

Written up in the Boston Globe and the New York Post, the Wildflower is easy walking distance from all the sights, shops and restaurants of downtown Anchorage. The 1940s home is a white, two-story saltbox house with three colorful lodging options: two suites, and one standard room—each with classic furniture. The two suites—one comes with a queen bed, the other with a King bed —each offer adjacent sitting rooms with double futons. All rooms come with TV/VCRS, video libraries, reading materials and wifi, as well as private bathrooms (the standard room even has a Jacuzzi tub).

The Wildflower attracts a wide range of guests—from cruise ship passengers to solo adventure travelers—who can mingle daily over breakfast (included in the rate), with options such as eggs and reindeer sausage, caramelized French toast or Alaska blueberry pancakes. Hosts Larry and Allan—who have each been in Alaska for more than 25 years—are always happy to offer advice for fun activities or destinations around Alaska, and love hearing what their guests have seen and heard in their travels. They also own another B&B nearby, the Arctic Fox Inn.

Highlights of staying here include:

  • Charming lodging in historic-era home
  • Walking access to downtown Anchorage
  • Delicious daily breakfast
  • Friendly hosts and congenial B&B atmosphere
