Escape from New York

"Our brief holiday was idyllic...The people were friendly and the setting was restful."

– Brooklyn, New York Guest

Incredibly Romantic

"We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this truly special place . . . after getting unpacked, we took a walk into the historic part of [Cottonwood Falls] to catch the most beautiful pink light reflected off of the courthouse . . . There must be something very special about this place, because moments later, my special man asked me to marry him! It was easy to say yes!"

Lovely weekend getaway

"What a perfect stay.  We could walk to Friday night music or just hang out ... and watch the world go by."

- Kansas City Guest

Love from California

"Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! We spent hours just porchin’ on the rocking chairs [at the LarkInn Guesthouses] listening to the prairie winds and rain on the tin roof. Great place for a 'City Slicker'"

- Irvine, California Guest

Pictures don’t do the Flint Hills justice

"...we went for a scenic hike through the nature preserve, and later drove out to Flying W for a horse trail ride. Pictures do NOT do any of it justice. I guess we will just have to come back to relive it all again!!"

- Westwood, Kansas Guest

Wonderful!

"A picture perfect day in The flint Hills. We rode horses at a nearby ranch. The horses were 'fresh' in the morning but by afternoon, horses and riders settled in for a relaxing ride. Thanks for creating such a wonderful place to stay during our visit."

– Leawood, Kansas Guest

Breathtaking

"We are touring the US and Canada for 7 weeks and this was a lovely spot to draw breath and relax before we hit the road again."

– Newcastle upon Tyre, England Guest

Can’t wait to visit again

"Had wonderful evening in the town listening to the live music and meeting the locals – all that after a wonderful hike on the prairie. Something tells us we will be back!! ...Cozy place to stay!"

- Lawrence, Kansas Guest

Perfect place to escape

"Wonderful weekend in a comfortable relaxing place. We loved all the nature we experienced. The beautiful Flint Hills on our hikes, the wide variety of birds seen while sitting on the patio, the fox family out past the time building, and rocking on the porch [of our guesthouse] enjoying the chimes."

– Prairie Village, Kansas Guest

Will return every year

"Second visit to Cottonwood Falls... This year I brought one of my daughters and her 2 children. The five of us had an enchanting time – Riversuite dinner on the bridge – Symphony on the Prairie and Folk Life Festival activities and of course the turtles on the bridge – so comfortable here!"

- Wagoner, Oklahoma Guest
