“The perfect Christmas Eve”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We live in Evergreen, but had never stayed at Highland Haven Creekside Inn until this Christmas when we were unable to be in our home on Christmas Eve. The staff couldn't have been kinder, allowing us to check in when it was most convenient to us. We stayed in a two-room cottage that featured the most comfortable night sleep we had enjoyed in years. Seriously, all four of us agree that their bedding is the best in the world. The cozy fireplace, handy and efficient kitchen area, modern bathroom, and warm and welcoming decor made our Christmas Eve stay a memory we will never forget. My only regret is that we missed their famously delicious breakfast, but we applaud the owners for not asking staff to come in on Christmas morning. (They offered to bring in muffins for us; I should have accepted with their reputation of delicious food.) Like another local friend, we will make staying at Highland Haven an annual treat for ourselves. It was absolutely perfect!

Room Tip: Tell them your needs and they'll give you the best options. They treat you like family!

Thank you so much! Christmas Eve is supposed to be special and being away from home can make that hard, and we want you to feel cozy and comfortable and so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your understanding on our closure on Christmas Day, it is very important to us that all of our staff gets that day with the ones they love. We so hope you can come back and enjoy our breakfast. Your time and kindness is so very appreciated.

My husband and I were looking for something intimate, that was not far from Denver. We flew from Houston and stayed at this sweet little, amazing Inn and LOVED it! The delicious home cooked breakfasts every morning (included) were divine. The rooms are cozy and rennovated. Everything is clean and quaint. It's right on the creek and not far from the lake for iceskating. The staff is so friendly and sweet. We just loved it! It is affordable too. I recommend it Highland Haven for sure! We will go back. It;s quite a romantic place, as well.

Room Tip: The recently renovated room D is where we stayed and it was affordable, cozy and perfect!

My husband and I both moved from California to Evergreen when we were in middle school - which is where we met. We married in our early twenties and found it only fitting that our honeymoon should be spend at a locale symbolic of our original connection. That was seven years ago and since we have spent many a wonderful experience here. My sister-in-law had a stone set in their Lover's Lane when we married, and we enjoy the frequent stroll and visit still. To spend a night, a week, an eternity here... I'm certain it is not to disappoint.

My husband and I just returned from celebrating our anniversary at The Highland Haven, and we can't stop raving about the experience. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and special. Kim greeted us at the front desk with genuine kindness, and told us we were being upgraded to a larger suite because it was a quiet week (mid-week November). We absolutely loved Blue Spruce One, and it was perfect for our tastes with its bird and nature theme, gorgeous rock fireplace, jetted tub, wet bar, sitting area, and very private patio.

We enjoyed their Wine Wednesday offer ($50 rate reduction plus a bottle of wine) even more because they happened to pick the red wine we served at our wedding!

The location on Bear Creek is tucked away yet just a short walk from the main shops(although we drove due to the nippy weather). Having never been to Evergreen, we were lucky to get tips on what to visit from the owner, Gail. We lingered after breakfast our first morning in the original 1870's era log cabin, and had a delightful conversation about the area. It's obvious that even after running the hotel for 35 years that she genuinely loves her guests and her town.

We think the Highland Haven offers the perfect mix of romance and privacy with attention to detail and welcome caring from all of the staff. We can't wait to return!

Fun tip: don't miss the town lake and golf course before dusk...we saw a herd of around 100 elk!

Thank you so much for your letter about us, the whole staffed was just over the moon, grateful. Kim is such a wonderful person and employee and she so appreciated your review. Whenever we can we try and upgrade our guests so they can see our romantic cottages, especially when they are coming for a special occasion.
It was so randomly lucky that we have Apothic Red, it must have been meant to be! We will have it when you return if you decide to come on a Wednesday as Wine Wednesday is my favorite special!
Gail is all of our role model, as she does what she loves every day is so passionate about the Highland Haven, she really enjoyed meeting you and appreciates you not only being our guest but recognizing all of her hard work. Thank you,
Roxy

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Highland Haven in the Gardener's Cottage. Loved the cottage with its cozy, rustic yet luxe decor. We were perfectly comfortable in the king-sized bed-very comfortable yet supportive mattress ! The fireplace, steam shower and jetted tub were appreciated also. The location of this inn is really perfect: right by the rushing waters of Bear Creek,surrounded by beautiful scenery, but only a short walk into town, to Evergreen Lake, and even a nearby yoga studio. Great breakfasts and thoughtful extras like hot cider, cookies, awesome resident dogs (!) made our visit really special. We really enjoyed the town of Evergreen, its beautiful scenery, and friendly residents. We also thought the staff at Highland Haven was exceptional and definitely plan to return.

Room Tip: Gardener's cottage was situated perfectly. The Tree House is perfect for a honeymoon or an anniv...

We were looking for a place to relax and decompress from our busy life. We certainly picked the right place. We spent five amazing days at Highland Haven! The Inn is lovely and very well maintained. It feels so homey from the moment we arrived and were greeted with warm cookies and lemonade while we checked in to our rooms. The staff are friendly, helpful and made us feel like part of the family. Our cabin was the Blue Spruce 2 it had a king bed with lovely linens and lots of pillows which I love. A nice fireplace and a sitting area with two leather chairs and ottomans and lights for reading. There was also a little kitchenette with just the right amenities to make us comfortable. A brand new private patio were we could sit and relax. We did not realize how truly quiet it could be outside. The bath was newly updated with lots of towels and nice terry robes which we love. The buffet breakfasts were delicious and it was cozy sitting by the fireplace in the lodge to eat. I think that what makes this inn truly unique are the owners and the staff who truly take your comfort as their first priority. I would love to go back and spend more time at Highland Haven. I highly recommend it for a couple who are looking to reconnect or connect for the first time. It is a lovers paradise!

What an amazing experience! I chose to propose to my fiancee at the Highland Haven because of the TreeHouse suite. I told the staff of my plan before we arrived and they were incredibly helpful. They accepted delivery of the engagement ring from FedEx, ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant we dined at after the proposal and even helped to stage the proposal area on Lovers Lane! We absolutely adored the thoughtful detail and luxurious elegance of the TreeHouse. The breakfast is to die for and Rowly, the owner's dog on the grounds is a wonderful host. The staff was abuzz with the proposal and everyone shared in our excitement and joy. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: TreeHouse is spectacular and worth the rate! You can tell the owners and staff put their love into t...
