A Breath of Fresh Air: The Kinn Guesthouse Approach to Hospitality

Experience True Hospitality at Kinn Guesthouse

When a family's history and passion for hospitality come together, magic happens. Enter Kinn Guesthouse, a one-of-a-kind hotel experience that blends the eclectic style of a boutique hotel with the comforting amenities of a residential rental property. We’re proud of the unique travel experience we’ve created at Kinn’s properties, so we’d love to explain the inspiration behind our unique approach to hospitality.

The Philosophy Behind Kinn Guesthouse's Approach to Hospitality

At the heart of Kinn Guesthouse lies a philosophy deeply rooted in creating an atmosphere that feels like home while still providing the curated charm of a boutique hotel. 

The idea is to offer guests not just a place to stay, but an immersive experience that reflects the warmth and authenticity of our family's dedication to hospitality. Kinn Guesthouse is more than just accommodation. It has been designed to make every guest feel a sense of discovery, connectivity, and community while away from home. 

By blending luxury and comfort, historical and modern, and private and social, we’ve found a true balance– all while still providing the first-class amenities of a boutique hotel. This is our philosophy: to create memorable, one-of-a-kind experiences.

We believe in creating spaces and experiences that leave a lasting impression. Our rooms are equipped with keyless access, Brooklinen bedding, free WiFi, Omaha mattresses, adjustable heat/AC, private baths with Waterworks fixtures, and a seating area. 

The little luxuries extend to common spaces, featuring a pro-series range, fireplace, complimentary coffee, stylish furniture, cutlery/plateware, flat-screen TV, full-size refrigerator, and a library collection. 

Our commitment to detail even extends to personal care products, with spa-inspired products custom-made by our neighbors at Ursa. And for the practical traveler, our self-serve laundry is accessible 24/7, with high-efficiency washers, dryers, and detergent. We even offer convenient charging stations for electric vehicle owners, aligning with our forward-thinking approach to hospitality.
