While the location was ideal and on the edge of town, the cabin (big Pine) was in disrepair. Two bedroom and 1 bath, musty smell and fireplace that I wouldn't think of lighting. The kitchen had a refrigerator that worked well, small stove and was way outdated and needed a complete overhaul. First night heat would not come on...called and... More

Hi Jack! I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. Many of our guests love that cabin, the kitchen is older but works well. The fireplace is a great extra that we enjoy in this cabin and works great. I'm sorry that someone was unable to help you with your heat until later, being that this is... More

I thought the cabin was very nice. It had new furnishings, plenty of space for the 3 of us. The kitchen was prepared with pots and pans and all the essentials, which was a huge surprise. Grand Lake is a quaint town with coffee shops and plenty stores to shop at. I would definitely come visit again.

My husband and I came up to spend some time fishing and enjoying the mountains. While we didn't have any luck with the fish, we absolutely loved the area. We were a little nervous when we saw how close the cabins were to one another, but we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our cabin. What a comfortable, homey... More

We live in Iowa and my in-laws live in California. We were looking for a place to meet half way and came across Grand Lake. When looking for places to stay we wanted something that was very cozy and would accommodate 6 people. I was very impressed with the hospitality and cleanliness of Daven Haven. You get exactly what you... More

My daughter and I were able to break away from civilization for one night. The cabin and surroundings were perfect. Everything was far more than we expected in terms of supplies and nearby hiking. I cant comment on the restaurant because we have specific dietary needs not accomodated by most restaurants and just brought our own food. The kitchen had... More

Our families first reaction upon pulling in was that all the cabins were on top of each other. After settling in we found it to have a surprisingly private feeling. You can't beat the location. It's short walking distance to lake and town. Wildife frequent the campground. the moose were amazing! Things were very quiet during our stay. But maybe... More

Hi Postmanjjc! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! You are correct in stating that we were preparing for the season. We had snow piled high this past winter and when it melts we have to work very quickly to get the grounds cleaned and tidy. In the early spring months we do see, and feel, understaffed due... More

My girlfriends stayed at the wildwood cabins. The aspen cabin specifically. The cabin was perfect location to main st and the lake. It fit 3 people perfectly. Everything was clean. We had a great time.

Right at the end of the Grand Lake main street, these cabins are the perfect location. Super quiet and charming, the Aspen cabin we stayed in was adequate for our weekend. Both the bedroom mattress and sofa bed mattress were the most uncomfortable things on the planet. Very wire-y mattress that caved in the middle due to a broken bed... More

Hi LenayNicole! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We have upgraded many of the mattresses in our cabins, including this cabin. This is an expensive project so it is taking some time, but we are working diligently. Join us again and experience our improved beds! Kind Regards, Jeanie More

I am sad to say we were very disappointed with our stay at Daven Haven Lodge and Cabins. I purchased a Groupon and used it over Father's Day.

Hi Jayne! I'm sorry to hear that your stay was unpleasant! The cabin that you stayed in is a Homeowner cabin, it is true that it is not pet friendly but the Homeowner does bring their dog with them when they stay in this cabin.

Clean and comfortable. The floor in the bed area was oddly un-even it was like a mound slopping on all sides?!?!? They were very quick to fix a window that didn't have a blind. Asked about fixing it as we went to dinner and when we got back it was fixed! I would stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A part of Grand Lake since the 1930's Daven Haven Lodge has only had 3 long-term owners since its conception, beginning with Lester and Cornelia Piper and Mrs. Pipers mother Mrs. Davis. The main road to Grand Lake was the street in front of the present main lodge, originally made up of a gas station and several small tourist cabins. The original tourist cabins still remain on the back of the property and are used as employee housing. The Pipers and Mrs. Davis owned and operated Daven Haven until 1968 when they sold to Tom and Betty Sowell who continued to build up their clientele and great reputation into the 80's when they sold Daven Haven and ended up with it back shortly there after. Leasing the lodge proved not to be a good idea and with new ventures on the horizon Tom and Betty bid farewell. The lodge remained closed for a few years and in 1990 reopened with its present owners Greg & Carey Barnes, their sons Dustin & Patrick and their dog Buddie. Now in their 25th season, the Daven Haven atmosphere is still a comforting place to come back to time and time again. With several familiar faces welcoming back our long time guests and greeting our new ones. ... more   less
