Kinrest was given its name due to the Kin using it as a resting spot during their seasonal migration from their home on Dread Mountain. They would use the spot to rest for a day between the Dreaming Spring in winter and during their return to the mountain in summer. Once the Dread Gnomes began to hunt Kin with arrows tipped with Gellick's venom, the Kin were forced to live at the Dreaming Spring - with Kinrest being abandoned.
During this time, a man named Doom took up residence in Kinrest. He rescued Jarred when he fled from the Shadowlands, but was later killed by Grey Guards. Jarred buried him and marked his resting place with a gravestone.
Kinrest is a small grove within a thick forest, broken up by a flowing creek. There is a moss covered cave large enough for a flock of Kin to take shelter inside.
Jasmine described the trees around Kinrest to be old and secretive, keeping much to themselves. Nevertheless, they were happy to see Kin return.
