My wife and I just checked out yesterday after a 4 night stay. We had cabin #10, which would have been big enough for another couple to stay with us, too. I loved the location, which is away from the busy downtown area. It's actually on a road that turns into a dead end, so there's very little traffic. And... More

This was a great random find for us. We originally headed over to the area to eat at Dunraven Inn, but then decided to see if there were any vacancies at Swiftcurrent, and we were in luck! We stayed in #2, which is a studio-sized room. The room was perfect for us! Everything was very clean and like-new. The setting... More

Cottage unit #2 is one of our favorites. Sure glad you agree. Hope you can stay with us again in the near future. (One thing, you mentioned a "gas" fireplace, it is electric-don't want to mis-lead anyone). Wishing you safe travels. Gary & Coni More

We spent 4 nights in cabin 12 and had a wonderful experience. It was nice to have a small kitchen so we didn't have to go out every night. The location was excellent with the river right out back with comfortable swings to enjoy the view. We could walk right into the RMNP and drive there in no time at... More

Cabin #2 (sleeps 2) Clean, beautiful stream just off patio and 300ft walk from Rocky National Park. Have stayed here in past and look forward to returning. The Dunraven Inn (food) is just a few steps from Swiftcurrent Lodge (GREAT FOOD)

The Swiftcurrent Lodge offers accommodations on the river and near the park. Estes Park can be crowded during the summer, but the Swiftcurrrent is away from the traffic hassles. The room was comfortable. but a little loud for me. You have very easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park from here.

Hi Karl- Thank you for your review. Our location 300 yards from RMNP is appreciated by many guests like yourself. We apologize that your neighbors were unacceptably loud. We discourage any "noise" that disturbs another guest. We hope to see you again. Regards- Gary & Coni More

We loved staying in our room right by the river! We felt welcome, the hotel was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and on the swings by the water. We were missing our 4-legged kiddos and also got a little doggie loving from the owner's pup!

My husband and I stayed here July 3-11, 2015. Peaceful location with the Big Thompson River flowing adjacent to this lodging. We went to sleep to the sound of rushing water! Coni and Gary offered restaurant advice, Smokin' Daves, and found a needle and thread for me to hem my hiking pants. We walked to the RMNP entrance from the... More

Wonderful location puts you right on the river, but feels very private. Comfortable and clean. Gary and Coni are friendly and helpful hosts and you feel right at home. Rates can't be beat for the amazing location, plus you are right by the national park. Stayed here many times and will return.

We spent four days in cozy cabin #2 and it was the perfect home base to explore Rocky Mountain National Park and the Estes Park area. The location is perfect...close to everything but yet you feel you are out in the middle of the woods. We really enjoyed relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine and listening to... More
