“It’s a really fun addition to our venue”-Anne LArson, Co-Owner of Gathered Oaks
The journey of starting an Airbnb
Anne & Dave Larson have been dreaming about grain bins as a concept at one of their venues for several years. When they started to create Gathered Oaks, it seemed like a perfect fit and so the Larsons began to create concepts with their builder to bring their ideas to life.
Meanwhile, Anne’s aunt near Kensington had several grain bins that she was not using. With many pieces of the puzzle falling into place as well as some engineering plans, the Airbnb took shape. The unique concept created many challenges but also gave the Larsons many opportunities to think outside the box and provide a truly unique experience for guests.
“It’s a really fun addition to our venue,” Anne said. “Creating more accommodation for wedding guests, creating possibilities for corporate or other kinds of gatherings at Gathered Oaks and providing a unique guest stay during our non-event days.”
