The "Church" started out as a Presbyterian church in 1885. Used as many things throughout its history it was converted to a home in 2005. It is a wonderful open space that accommodates 10 for sleeping .

Guests have access to the whole building which includes the kitchen and two living areas as well as a large deck with two grills and a table.

When the guests estimate that they are 20 to 30 minutes away we ask that they call us so that we can go unlock the property. If they end up coming in later than anticipated,they can just let us know. We can leave the property unlocked so that in the event they arrive before we do, they can go ahead and start setting up shop and begin enjoying their time at The Lark Inn.


The Church is literally just steps from the historic Chase County Courthouse which is situated at the end of the quaint, brick-paved historic shopping district of Cottonwood Falls. At sunset, you can see the golden sunlight illuminating the clock tower and flag of the Courthouse from the front porch of The Church.


The property is appointed with a large open kitchen which includes a gas oven and stove, microwave, ice maker in addition to a large side by side fridge. The downstairs bedrooms have queen size beds, one of the upstairs bedrooms has a full-size bed and the other bedroom has a twin and a trundle bed. Large bathrooms with a shower downstairs as well as a half bath ; the upstairs bath has a tub/shower.

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.

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 The Lark Inn on Main, also in Cottonwood Falls.

Since then, owners of other properties have sought Pat & Kris to revitalize their properties and/or build them a new guesthouse from the ground up. In late 2014 -3 guesthouses were added to the Lark Inn stable: The Lark Inn Cottage on Cottonwood, The Church and Aunt Kate's Cottage.
