About Pat & Kris Larkin
The proprietors of The Lark Inn Guest Houses are Kris and Pat Larkin. Originally, Okies from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kris and Pat moved to the Flint Hills after living in southern California for over 20 years. While in California Kris and Pat discovered and developed their gifts of hospitality; preparing and serving meals for literally hundreds of people for numerous events. They also hosted so many groups at their home over the years that people modified their last name of “Larkin” and began to refer to their home as “The Lark Inn” . . . thus the name was born. After selling their property management business in California, they set out on what they termed their “Second Half Discovery Tour” The purpose of the tour was to travel and experience various parts of the US and discover what they were to do and where they were going to spend the second half of their lives. Having been blessed with a successful first half of their lives, now the goal is to do something significant in their second halves . . . from success to significance. Anyway, with a little help from their friends, they discovered the miracle of The Flint Hills of Kansas and moved here! It didn’t take long for Kris and Pat to learn that lodging in The Flint Hills was not plentiful and so they bought their first guest house in Cottonwood Falls. It stayed consistently rented on a nightly basis all of the summer of 2010. Later in 2010, they found another property with guesthouse and cooking class potential and in January of 2011, they purchased another . Pat and Kris now own/manage several guesthouses in the Cottonwood Falls/ Strong City, Kansas area.
Pat & Kris Larkin purchased this House in 2011
Why Pat & Kris Larkin chose Cottonwood Falls
One of the main reasons people come to the Flint Hills is to get-a-way . . . to leave the hassle and hustle of the city behind. When we first saw Fox Hollow nestled down amidst the massive oak trees we just new it was the perfect setting for our guests to unwind and recharge their batteries.
What makes this House unique
Nestled harmoniously with the many oaks and other trees The Lark Inn at Fox Hollow is a perfect guest house to get away from it all in the picturesque Flint Hills of Kansas. Located in Cottonwood Falls, is the perfect central location to visit the many wonders of the Flint Hills. This 1 bedroom 1 bath refurbished 1920’s bungalow style house sleeps 6 and is fully furnished and equipped to ensure that you have everything you need for your Flint Hills getaway. Relax and sleep in and enjoy your breakfast at the harvest table in the country kitchen or on the oversized patio under the massive oak trees while enjoying the birds’ serenade. You can easily walk to the recently refurbished Chase County Courthouse built in 1870 or any other business or restaurants on the brick-paved Broadway Street just a block away! How did this guest house get its name? Sit quiet for a while and you will soon see for your self, the inspiration (or inspirations) for the name may very well come trotting by.

A night in the Flint Hills
Great location for a night at Keller Feed & Wine in beautiful Cottonwood Falls
Very charming old home. Clean and comfortable. Hosts were very accommodating and added very nice touches to home to make stay enjoyable. Definitely would recommend!
The house was perfect - so cozy and comfortable!
Wish our travel plans would have allowed us to stay longer to enjoy more of the house and surrounding town and area. Loved the personal touch of freshly baked muffins and eggs.
Wonderful get away!
This was a wonderful, cozy get away! Great hospitality and attention to detail - would stay here again in a heart beat!

Great time on Cottonwood Falls and the Flint Hills.
