About Kris Larkin

Shawn and Jessica Taylor moved to Cottonwood Falls, KS in July of 2013 after Shawn's dad was diagnosed with cancer. They found out 2 weeks before their wedding and skipped their honeymoon so they could quickly sell their Las vegas home and immediately get to Chase County in order to be close to Shawn's family during that difficult time.

While residing in Chase County, they realized that modern designs and amenities were not abundant. Therefore, they decided to buy properties in town which they transformed with their unique "modern living in the country" style.

Shawn has worked on commercial projects and homes from the ground up as a union carpenter in Kansas City, MO, and jack-of-all-home-trades handyman in Las Vegas. His major clients in Las Vegas were realtors, but his workmanship attracted so many customers, he had to hire assistants.

Jessica has always loved to decorate homes, so with both of their talents intertwined, Taylor Guest Homes was born and their first guest house in Strong City, KS is now open to visiting guests.

This beautiful guest home offers a unique interpretation of local history, small town America, and down home comfort combined with stylish modern conveniences! Come on in! Hope you enjoy your stay!

Shawn and Jessica have relocated back to the San Diego, California area and have left their guesthomes to be managed by Kris and Pat Larkin of Lark Inn Property Management, LLC . . . What an awesome addition to the Lark Inn stable of quality guesthouses!!

Why Kris Larkin chose Strong City

It is in a peaceful setting, is equipped with modern conveniences, walking distance to restaurants (Ad Astra, El Chico, Subway), the park, and much more!

What makes this house unique

10 jet jacuzzi bathtub, deck off of back sliding doors, outdoor seating, lots more!!

Great cottage near the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve!

  • 5 of 5

We met family here and shared this house during a weekend of hiking and astronomy in the Flint Hills. It has a very well-equipped kitchen, a living room great for conversation and comfortable beds. The owner even left us a plate of muffins and some farm-fresh eggs! We really enjoyed our stay. Our only suggestion would be that all 4 of us thought the shower could use a grab rail as it's a little difficult to get in and out of with the raised platform it's on. We would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and thoughtful remarks. We will try to get that grab bar in as soon as possible. We had never had that request before but we want to make the property as user friendly as possible. Thank you for taking time to write a review. We would love to have you visit again, Kris Larkin

Situated in the middle of a rural community on the Kansas prairie, this place is as surprising in its loveliness as the barren plains were...who knew this little part of Kansas was SO breath-taking (if stark) and beautiful? and who would expect to walk into HGTV from the little unassuming front porch of this little frame house? Nicely redecorated. Well appointed. Comfortable and even oddly scenic!

Beautiful Little Home in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We opted to stay here instead of camping in 100 degree weather, and it was perfect! Everything was clean, modern, and comfortable and the view out the back is beautiful! There were so many nice touches that made it feel like home, and it was tastefully decorated, just as it is pictured. We were able to walk to Ad Astra for dinner, and it was a quick drive to Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. It was so nice to come back for a cold shower after hiking! Jessica was wonderful, and I would definitely recommend this to others!
