are your home for get-a-way lodging in the heart of the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas in Cottonwood Falls.

These fully furnished and equipped Guesthouses were built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and are on the historic “Cowboy Trail”.  Long since forgotten, they have been saved from the fate of demolition and now have been carefully revitalized to re-capture their magic of the era while . . . making sure that today’s modern conveniences and technology are at your fingertips.

Located literally, just steps away from the historic 1870’s Chase County Courthouse (the oldest operating courthouse in Kansas!), the downtown district of Cottonwood Falls is just minutes from the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve or Pioneer Bluffs in Matfield Green.  If you're not up for the drive, chill out and simply walk to our historic downtown to enjoy great food, events and festivals or great music.  The Lark Inn Guesthouses are a super convenient location for what’s going on in The Flint Hills.

What our Guests are Saying...

The 1879 Cottage is beautiful and well appointed.  We have stayed twice and are already talking about our next visit.  There is plenty of space for a group of 6 with comfortable beds and two large full bathrooms.  There are multiple outside living spaces.  Our favorite is the fire pit and the screened in porch with a gas log fireplace.  The kitchen is ready for meal prep with a large refrigerator and the muffins and eggs that are provided are delicious.  
We enjoyed the quiet surroundings and the walk to Main Street to see the courthouse and eat at the Grand Central Hotel Grill.  There’s also plenty of nature to see such as the unique black squirrels or the bison along the trails in the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve just a few miles outside of town.  We enjoyed an afternoon hike.  The management for the cottage does a wonderful job having everything ready and responds immediately to all requests.  It’s a wonderful and relaxing getaway.

Experience the Flint Hills in Chase County

The Lark Inn Guesthouses are located in the heart of The Flint Hills of Kansas with easy access from Wichita, Kansas City, Lawrence or Topeka

When you explore Chase County, you will discover the rolling Flint Hills hidden amongst the prairie plains. This Tallgrass wonderland is ideal for pasture-raising cattle and harkens back to a forgotten time. The views are breathtaking, and the towns are vibrant and friendly.
Plan your escape today. Chase County offers secluded lodging where you will wake up to songbirds and sunrises as you have never seen before. 
Look out over the rolling hills at waves of grasslands and see no trace of man. Let the Cottonwood River or a whispering breeze lull you to sleep at night. See the stars as they are meant to be seen, unfiltered by artificial light.

Dine at restaurants known across the state and nationally. Get inspired by nature, and commune with local artists and musicians. Most importantly, forget the idea that Kansas is flat. The Flint Hills have captivated travelers since the days of horses and wagons. A prehistoric ocean once covered the area, and the rolling waves of lush grass still resemble a rippling sea. Chase County has the most extensive undisturbed swath of the Flint Hills, including the federally protected Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
