Where Can I Host a Family Reunion in Denver?

There are plenty of hotels in Denver to host your family reunion. You can find chain hotels like Marriotts and Hyatts, or even more unique hotels like the Brown Palace.

But if you are looking for somewhere that you can really spread out and have great activities all around you (with easy access), I suggest getting out of Denver and heading to some other great areas in Colorado.

Below, I’ve listed a bunch of great cities in Colorado to have a family reunion, along with lodging suggestions. These are great places that provide memorable experiences included in your stay, or (for more budget-friendly reunions) close by to your lodging.

Grand Lake Family Reunion Lodging

1. The Daven Haven Lodge

The Daven Haven Lodge is located in the popular Grand Lake, Colorado. It’s just a couple minutes drive from the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, giving your family incredible hiking and views during your Colorado Family reunion. It’s the perfect way to spend the day with a large group.

At The Daven Lodge there are 16 cabins on the property. Each individual family could rent a cabin near each other and hang outside together for a BBQ. There is a picnic area, perfect for meals together.

Cabins can sleep 3 to 6 people (depending on option chosen) and all come with a fridge and microwave for easy breakfast prep. The larger cabins have a full kitchen inside.

For the other meals, you can check out the restaurant and bar on site, or you can head to one of the nearby restaurants.

Tip: if booking with the link below, book one room at a time. Since each room is different, it won’t be able to pull up multiple of the same room on a search 🙂

Being near Grand lake will make the perfect Colorado family reunion venue and location.
