I organize and put together a golf weekend for a bunch of my high school buddies. We have been doing this for over 20 years and used to switch venues every year. We went to Vail, Durango and La Vita amongst other places and ended up in Grand Lake about 8 years ago. Ever since that experience, we have gone back to the Daven Haven in Grand Lake every year. It is the perfect spot for a reunion or get together of any type. The staff is accomodating and friendly, the cabins are neat and clean and the food is awesome. The steakhouse is the best resaturant in Grand lake and Carey always puts her personal touch on our awards banquet barbeque. If you have never been to Grand Lake, it has a little bit of everything to offer--golf, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, go-karts, shopping, etc etc, and they are pretty much all in walking distance of the Daven Haven. We already have our cabins booked for this year and can't wait to get back!
- 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 The main road to Grand Lake was the street in front of the present main lodge, originally made up of a gas station and several small tourist cabins.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
