The Daven Haven Lodge



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 Cornelia's 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 The main road to Grand Lake was the street in front of the present main lodge, originally made up of a gas station and several small tourist cabins.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 left Daven Haven. Tom and Betty bid farewell and the lodge remained closed for a few years and in 1990 reopened with its present owners Greg & Carey Barnes, their sons Dustin & Patrick. Now in their 34th 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.

The Daven Haven Lodge is nestled inside the Village of Grand Lake, two city blocks off the main street. Our cabins offer a comfortable sense of seclusion and affords each traveler the opportunity to relax in a home-away-from-home atmosphere. Our individual cabins sleep from one to eight guests - all have fully equipped kitchens and some have wood-burning stoves,and fireplaces.
