“Fun filled weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Had a spectacular dinner in the restaurant!!! The food is really quite good and the service is great. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. We stayed in cabin 33 and really enjoyed the accommodations. I was expecting the cabin to be very rustic but it wasn't. It was very clean and cozy with everything you need. We truly enjoyed our time!!

We booked two nights in one of the cabins at Daven Haven, and our experience was good to start. However, when we went to bed things took a turn for the worse. The sheets in both beds were obviously not clean - the bed my wife and I slept in had dirt and pine needles in it and the kids bed had long black hair throughout. It was late so we decided to wait to address the situation in the morning. When I talked to the owner, he dismissed my complaints as untrue and made no attempt to rectify the situation. I then told him that we were not staying for the second night and we wanted a refund for the second night. My mistake was leaving before securing that refund. It has been two months since that stay and still no response from Daven Haven. I have talked to Sheila twice on the phone, and sent two emails that included pictures of the dirty sheets. We will never stay at this establishment again and I would definitely not recommend it to anyone else considering a cabin rental in Grand Lake.

We went up to Grand Lake for a last minute getaway. I have been visiting Grand Lake for years, but never ventured over to Daven Haven. I am so glad that we finally made it !
We stayed in cabin #29, and were so pleasantly surprised. The kitchen is new, and huge ! We only stayed for the one night, but this would have been perfect for a week's stay, and easy to cook meals in the space. We did make our own breakfast, and all the supplies were at hand.
The bathroom is new, and very clean. The bedroom was quite comfortable, and the sitting area/living room was cozy as well.
We did treat ourselves to dinner at the steakhouse on site, and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The salads, steaks and dessert were wonderful, and the waitress went out of her way to cater to my dietary needs. ( Gluten allergies)
We are so looking forward to a return visit, and next time we'll stay much longer !

Not only are the premises at Daven Haven Lodge in Grand Lake beautiful and clean, the pesonnel to a person are friendly and go out of their way to make you comfortable. I am very impressed with this facility. The Lodge is in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains within walking distanceto the lake. The cabins have kitchen facilities and are fully stocked with dishes, and towels. You have all the amenities of a hotel plus the beauty of the surroundings and pure air.

I stayed here while visiting some friends. The Service is remarkable. Everybody had a smile on there face and went out of there way to make my stay comfortable. Had an extremely cold night, -36 degrees and the pipes froze. The maintenance staff came out at 11:30 at night and got the pipes thawed out. Couldn't imagine getting that kind of service around Houston...very refreshing people here.
Checked out the Restaurant and I was not let down. The food is absolutely amazing and the service was on point.
Can't wait to get some time off in the summer to come back out and stay here again. I'll have to bring some more friends next time.

These cottages are located off the main strip in a trashy area. The grounds of Daven Haven are cluttered and old. The whole place is for sell, and it looks as though the owners are ready to bail! The electrial outlets are hanging by the wires on the walls, gas lines are nailed to the outside walls, and old space heaters inside. I was thankful we made it through the night safe and sound! There were quite a few places for sell in Grand Lake. It looks as though the area dying. My advice............visit, but stay in another town!

Lovely cabin with a HUGE kitchen! Very quiet and nice. The shower stall could use updating, but otherwise very nice. Very close to Rocky Mountain National Park.

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
