“Great if you need to sleep with your feet elevated”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We booked this room to celebrate our 28th anniversary, it turned out to not be such a great choice. We were in cabin #36 with a queen & double bed. The rooms have been renovated moderately and acceptable for a rustic cabin. The uneven floors and small bathroom are tolerable and I'm sure would cost a lot to level up, but time needed to be spent leveling up the beds to compensate for the unlevel floor. We're talking 2-3 inches out of level. The head of the bed sleeps down hill on the queen and the double leans to one side. Needless to say two people are not able to sleep in one bed with a hasell so we slept in separate beds for our anniversary. Guess it will a anniversary to tell the grandkids about. The steakhouse had great food but HORRIBLE service! Definitely not worth the $100 price tag for two steaks and two hours between entering and leaving restaurant.

I really enjoyed my recent stay at Daven Haven. The cabins are spacious, open and inviting with a complete kitchen. The decorations make it feel so homey. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with flowers everywhere. I love all the jukeboxes and antiques in the restaurant. Every meal I had in the restaurant and bar was excellent, and the service was all I could ask for. I will definitely be back for another visit!

Was so looking forward to a warm cabin with a fire and a wonderful all you can eat shrimp dinner at the steakhouse (as advertised) but instead what we got was a cold cabin NO firewood and the most expensive worst shrimp dinner ever...Long John silvers could have done better!! To start When we checked in at 5pm I asked to buy a bundle of wood and was told to go to the the local gas station because they didn't bother cutting any Wood for their guests, so we go to the cabin to drop off our stuff and the window was wide open and thermostat set down to 50 (it's freaking February btw) so we turn up the heat shut the window and decide to go try the famous steakhouse. Bad idea!! All you can eat shrimp except too bad 1 out of the 3 offered is all out! Ok fine try to make the best of it but the service was horrible, slow and the food that was available sucked and all for over 100$. After 2 1/2 hours of bad service and crappy food we try to get firewood at said local store and of course they are closed by now...so back to the cabin and guess what still freezing cold!! Never again will we stay at the big pile of expensive crap hole daven hell haven!!!!! Good luck if you do!!!

Everytime we have been to Daven Haven the food is perfect and the rooms are clean and welcoming. The staff is always friendly and more than accomodating. This is a very relaxing atmosphere. We have stayed in multiple cabins and have never had any issues with them. The decorations change almost everytime we come back. They really make you feel like family. Thank you Daven Haven!

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!

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!!

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
