We needed a room for one night, simply to sleep in after visiting friends. The Daven Haven has a 2 night minimum and thankfully they waived that for us - if not, I would have left and requested a refund. I can't speak to the overall ambience, as we did simply sleep there. The bed was horrible - needed to be replaced long, long ago. The dip in the middle of the mattress was ridiculous- should have slept in our car. The bathroom door would not close all the way; the shower was gross and definitely needed an update. The toiletries there- which we had our own anyway - are old, gross samples and the creamer packets for coffee were stained and disgusting.
- 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 The main road to Grand Lake was the street in front of the present main lodge, originally made up of a gas station and several small tourist cabins.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
