The Wildflower Inn is an amazing place to stay. Friendly staff, excellent food and awesome accommodations. This is a place to go and relax because there is no TV in any room. Newly added bar area makes for fun times before dinner. Awesome views anytime of year. We have stayed many times at different times of year. Never bad. We were just there with lots of snow. They have a hill for sled riding and connections for any other winter sport. They also have connections for summer sports as well.
We rented a two room suite in the main Farmhouse. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) for 3 nights. It was warm, cozy and convenient to walk down the stairs in the morning and right into the dining room for breakfast, or in the afternoon for the complimentary snack as well as for dinner at Juniper’s. The views from all windows in the suite were spectacular! We all enjoyed the sledding hill on the property and it’s close proximity to Burke Mtn for a day of skiing. The innkeepers Jim and Mary are friendly and attentive and make you feel so welcomed as do all the staff. There was an issue with no hot water on our last evening there but it was repaired quickly and efficiently within an hour or so, we could shower for dinner and so all was well again. It was a minor hiccup in an otherwise perfect stay and so it did not affect our stay in any way. But I felt the need to mention it only to let future guests know that if a problem does arise it will be handled immediately. In my opinion that is a 5 star rating in itself! The innkeepers care about their guests and want to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable. We will definitely be back!
