We have stayed here previously and it was great. This time not so much. There was no one there to check us in, just a note taped to the locked office door, and then it turned out that they were closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Our cabin was dirty- infested with so many bugs that bit us up in the night, the blankets had this weird crusty brown goo on them, the bathroom lights didn't work and so on. The owners responded and seemed appalled that we would say anything bad about their cabins. Then they explained their confusing policies and had a pile of excuses why there was no staff or help and claimed that WE didn't understand the rules. What?! How hard is it to reserve a clean place and stay the night? DON"T STAY HERE- there are many other gr4eat places in Grand Lake to stay. Daven Haven has let their standards drop so low that it's no longer a consideration.
- 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 The main road to Grand Lake was the street in front of the present main lodge, originally made up of a gas station and several small tourist cabins.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
