Highland Haven Creekside Inn has recently been updated both online and on-site. From a redesigned website to electric fireplaces in junior suites, guests can expect a new and improved overall experience.

The Evergreen, Colo.-based Highland Haven’s new website launched last week, featuring the moon and stars as their new logo. Other updates to the brand include new hardwood floors in the property’s cottages and enhancements to their corporate meeting space and fairytale wedding packages.

Visitors can still anticipate classic features like the inn’s breakfast with “McHaven” muffins and wild raspberry crisps made by owner Gail Riley from her Colorado Cravings cookbook. There are now additional complimentary happy hours with wine, local brews, and cocktails including signature grapefruit martinis.

The Fireside Loft, a cozy and convenient space for a business retreat, has been updated with new furniture and design elements. New Sales Manager, Allison Walker, leads the way for more meetings and events at Highland Haven.

Owner Tom Statzell has been hard at work behind many of the new updates. “The secret is tasteful spending keeping in mind our Colorado chic style, creating value for our guests at every turn,” he says.
