Great day

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. Dave and Shelley went above and beyond making it an experience in itself with Uncle Dave and guitar on the porch, and a private hammer dulcimer lesson for my daughter! The breakfast was excellent and our rooms were just perfect for us! Thanks and we'll be seeing you soon!


An enjoyable experience....

5 on June 24, 2016

The Wildflower Bed and Breakfast in Mountain View, Arkansas (the “Folk Music Capital of the World”) is a delightful retreat, with vintage décor and a fantastic breakfast. We have been to the Wildflower a number of times. We stay 5 days at a time. The Inn is located on the Town Square, so there are a lot of places you can walk to, including those around the Square where people are pickin’ and singin’. Chris and Shelley are the “new” innkeepers. “New” to us anyway, but they have owned the Wildflower for over a year. Their style is different from Pam and JR, the previous innkeepers, but it is still a fabulous experience. They did a lot of updating in the B&B: new mattresses, bedding, TVs and stuff like that. They refreshed the décor without messing up the vintage feel. The breakfasts are like what you would find at an upscale breakfast place - a fruit course, an entrée course and a dessert course. The cookies that are available in the afternoon are terrific. My husband says: I am quite pleasantly impressed with the new owners. Not only does Chris play a pretty good bass, thereby allowing me to play guitar the way a sensitive and discerning artist of my stature should be, but his wife Shelley puts on a marvelous feast of a breakfast that keeps me full while we endure those long hours settin’ on the front porch rocking chairs and shootin’ the breeze with some very interesting friends. I am not a musician so I like the relaxing part best.


Wonderful stay

We stayed at Wildflower B & B for one night only (sadly) It was an AMAZING experience. We were made to feel very welcome. Music on the Porch was great. Breakfast was BEAUTIFUL. This is a very SPECIAL place and everyone should stay here at least once in their lifetime.

Innkeeper Response
It's hard to experience everything Mountain View has to offer in only one night! We're fortunate to have some amazingly talented musicians that love to play on our porch--and for breakfast as well! We hope you come back and stay with us again--maybe for a little longer! :)


April 2016.....Wonderful B&B !!!

5 on May 14, 2016

Our stay at Wildflower Bed & Breakfast was our first stay at a B&B and it was wonderful!!! Chris was so friendly and welcoming as soon as we arrived, offering so much helpful info about an area we'd never been to before. We loved our room off the porch, getting to visit with other guests and walking the square. Shelley is the most amazing cook......breakfast, snacks, fresh lemonade....all amazing!!! We can't wait for a return visit!

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Shelley always goes the extra mile to provide a great breakfast. Our porch is one of the best features of our B&B. Thank you for the kind review. We hope to see you again soon. :)


Great stay

My wife and I have gone to many bed and breakfasts and this is one of the best,very good breakfast, and comfortable bed,and Chris was very knowledgeable of the area

Innkeeper Response
It's easy to know about the area because we just love this place! It's like living in Mayberry. :) We are glad you chose us as your place to stay. Thank you for the kind review. We would love to have you stay with us again soon.


Great stay

Chris and Shelley were great. Breakfast was fabulous, worth the drive and stay just to have breakfast. Rooms were very clean. Sitting on the porch and getting to visit with the other people that stayed was very nice, Mountain View needs more places to eat for dinner, the two places we ate were not very good.

Innkeeper Response
We are glad that you enjoyed staying with us. I see that you really liked our breakfast, but only gave us 2 circles in the onsite dining rating, and less than perfect on Service and Value. We only serve breakfast onsite, so I think you might have rated the restaurants in town rather than just our Bed and Breakfast. , We hope that you return and let us recommend a restaurant for you.


Absolutely Outstanding

5 on January 05, 2015

My new husband and I spent 6 nights in October, our belated honeymoon. We could not have chosen a better place to make our memories -- the food was indescribably delicious, the room was clean, cozy yet plenty of space and had everything we needed, the atmosphere was so welcoming, relaxing and quiet even though located on the square, where the "Hallmark Town" action is. Pam and JR were great hosts, and we loved starting each day with prayer before breakfast. We will definitely be going back. And Thanks Pam for the awesome "Wedding Cake for Two!"

First B & B Experience

This was the perfect B & B for our first experience. The room was so cute, very clean and quiet even though the B & B is on a corner. Jr and Pam are great hosts and the breakfast was so very good each morning, Could not have been a better experience.


A magical day; more than a room and a breakfast

5 on October 07, 2014

We woke up to the sounds of J.C. Bonds (a Mountain View personality) singing and playing his guitar with guests outside our room on the porch. Hummingbirds flew to the feeders, and after the bell rang, all of us sat down to a buffet breakfast, followed by more music- thanks to the talents of some of the guests singing around the piano (the terrific piano player was also a guest). Did we hit a special moment in September? Maybe not as we were told that other musicians were arriving the next morning. What more do you want when touring through Arkansas?.


Celebrating our 58th Wedding Anniversary

My wife and I spent two nights in the Wildflower B&B, and it was delightful. J.R. and Pam were superb, and so were the food and accommodations. We were so glad that we chose Wildflower B&B for our special occasion--our 58th Wedding Anniversary, and would love to return there in the future. We highly recommend this excellent place!

About the innkeepers

Shelley and I dreamed of owning an inn since we honeymooned at one. When we found the Wildflower in Mountain View, we fell in love with the building, the town, the people, and the music.

Signature Dish

Home-made Buttermilk Pancakes
Shelley makes her pancake batter from scratch using farm fresh eggs. These pancakes are light and fluffy and absolutely delicious. Add home made maple/pecan syrup and home made blueberry syrup as well as fresh strawberries for toppers and this dish hits the spot! This menu is a guest favorite.
