The place to stay in Evergreen

5 on April 15, 2016

Rooms are great, service is better. The breakfast at HH is one of the best you'll find. Everyone is pleasant and the location is perfect in Evergreen. I don't have a single negative thing to say about the place.

Innkeeper Response

Lovely 1 night stay

4.6 on March 21, 2016

Highland Haven is a wonderful place for a quick stay before or after skiing! It was more than comfortable, a beautiful location on the creek amid the evergreens, and with delicious breakfasts and happy hour. Can't think of anything more we could have wished for, especially for the price. Thank you Highland Haven!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the fantastic review, we are so happy that you enjoyed yourselves during your stay. We would love to have back again!


Magical weekend!

5 on March 18, 2016

My fiance and I were unbelievably impressed with not only the gorgeous Treehouse suite, but also with the breakfast and with the outstanding service from the staff. The staff and quality of the facilities made our engagement weekend even more special. We highly recommend staying at the Highland Haven will be back ourselves for sure.

Private retreat but close to everything

4.6 on February 17, 2016

My wife and I were able to plan an overnight while her mom watched the kids and Highland Haven Creekside was perfect for it. We are lucky enough to be "local" to it, but it's only 20 minutes from Golden or Littleton/Lakewood, so it's really not a bad drive for anyone in the Denver area. The service is friendly and classy, but not snooty...in true Colorado style, you'll be allowed to feel comfortable no matter what you drive up in or what you're wearing! The decor is tasteful and well-thought out. The breakfast was simply delicious, and we were able to sip coffee by the creek in the inviting outdoor chairs despite the fact that it was mid-winter! Spring, summer, or fall visitors are almost guaranteed a delightful experience letting the sound of a mountain creek wash away your worries. The one chink in the armor for us was that the mattress on our bed was much too soft. Not sure if some guests may prefer a mattress like this, but for my wife and I, it was not optimal. Overall, we loved the experience and can not wait to plan our next over-nighter at Highland Haven Creekside.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. If you could let us know which room you stayed in it would greatly help us address the bed issue. Please contact our Guest Services Manager Roxy via email at roxy@highlandhaven.com she would be happy to help take steps to resolve this issue.

Always a delightful escape!

Few places contain the charm of this venue

5 on December 27, 2015

This was our second weekend at Highland Haven and everything was just as nice this time as nine years ago. Exceptional decor in the rooms and public areas, great breakfast, warm and friendly staff and a perfect mountain setting. My absolutely ONLY complaint is that the shower head in our bathroom sprayed directly toward the shower door, which made setting the water temperature before stepping into the shower a very wet business. We hope to return every year from now on for our anniversary.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the great review! We understand the frustration with the shower head and we have been working with our housekeepers to turn showerheads away from the doors while cleaning to help prevent these wet messes. We look forward to hosting you again, hope it doesn't take nine more years!


Amazing

5 on November 11, 2015

It was so cute tucked away from the town and that made me immediately want to go in even more. We were greated right away from the owners dog and she was a doll! I love her. Check in is at 3 but my husband and I were there for our honeymoon and arrived way early but they still let us check in to the room. The room was amazingly clean and was very different and I loved it so much. It's way different than other cute tucked away places. I love everything about this place. The staff, the room, the area, EVERYTHING. I really also love the fact that they left a guestbook in the room for everyone to sign and I did and I will definitely be coming back.

Innkeeper Response
So thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We hope you'll be back again!

After purchasing the property in 1979 they transformed it with their complementary skills. Gail's hostess abilities and design eye were brought to life by Tom's impeccable craftsmanship. Creating a classic Colorado experience is their daily goal.
