My husband and I spent a week traveling through Alaska, before our southbound cruise to Vancouver. The last two nights, 12 and 13 September, were spent at A Wildflower Inn, thanks to TA recommendations! We had a rental car, and as we approached the Inn (not knowing this was were we were going to be staying!), I commented to my husband what an absolutely magnificent house it was. So I was really excited when I realised this was it!! We stayed in the Fireweed Suite which was absolutely wonderful. We had two huge rooms, both with television, and our own bathroom. Our room was upstairs with a lovely view of the streets outside (corner property). Cannot remember now if Larry or Alan was our host - one was away at the time, but he was fantastic. Before leaving for the night, the host would ask what our breakfast plans were, whether we would be having breakfast downstairs, etc. This was so nice, as other places we had stayed during that week, had merely left items in a fridge to be used as breakfast. This was a warm, hearty, wonderful, English-type breakfast. On our first morning there, we had planned to drive all the way to Seward, so we were given a lovely, packed breakfast to take along. It was a very wet and cold day, so we found this nice covered area at Seward, overlooking the water, where we unpacked our food and enjoyed it. On our second morning at the Inn, we enjoyed breakfast with the other guests. Absolutely wonderful, with freshly made pancakes to just die for!! The Inn's location is wonderful, even though we had a rental car. The food market across the street was great for snacks and they had lots of ready-made meals to take away. I also appreciated the fact that I could go downstairs to make tea or coffee whenever I wanted to. Overall, we had a really great stay, and I would not even consider staying anywhere else, should we ever again have the opportunity to visit Anchorage. My husband has never liked B&B's (likes lots of privacy), but even he was very satisfied. (Unfortunately I only have video footage, with no photos to add here).
