This was our first get away weekend in a long time. We could not have picked a more perfect place. We passed through town and straight to Swftcurrent. The grounds are breath taking. Our room was very clean and comfy and right on the river. We spent most of our time on our patio. The first morning we woke to... More

Karen and I have stayed at Swiftcurrent Lodge many times and will not stay anywhere else! After a long day of hiking, there is nothing like sitting in the hot tub and then sleeping with the window open to hear the river. Gary and Coni keep everything neat and are a wealth of information on the area We strongly recommend... More

Each stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge has been such a treat. Pleasant, well-maintained rooms. Great location for access to Rocky Mountain National Park and all it has to offer. Take a hike from right outside your room or cottage. Restaurants, Estes Park main drag, shopping -- all within short distances. Proprietors Gary and Connie are top-notch. We will return.

Perfect! Couldn't be better. Has homey rooms and cottages right on a lovely river. We loved it. Grills outside. Hot-tub outside. A mama bear and 2 cubs were in the parking area one morning. So cute. Easy hiking trail right at edge of property.

My family used to come to Estes Park annually. It's a great little town with much to see and do. This was my first time staying at the Swiftcurrent Lodge. I have to say, It's a very nice place to stay. The room was very nice, had lots of amenities, and was clean and quiet. The owners were very pleasant... More

We stayed this past September, 2014. This was our fourth time we stayed at Swiftcurrent Lodge. We stayed in room 12. It really was wonderful. The bedroom is separate from the living room/kitchen area. You can stay awake and watch TV or wake up early, without disturbing your love one's sleep. The refrigerator is large. They have a full kitchen... More

We loved being right by the river in room 204. There is a balcony overlooking the river. The room is large, and was very clean. We liked being able to hike into Rocky Mtn park right from our room. We didn't see much wildlife from our deck, but did see lots in the area. The mid-September color is beautiful. We... More

Last year we only had 4 days at Swiftcurrent before the 100 year flood forced us back home. That short 4 days told us this was the place to be so we came back and spent 3 glorious weeks with Coni and Gary. The accommodations were outstanding and there is nothing better than sitting by the Big T as the... More

My husband and I just returned from our 3rd visit to Swiftcurrent Lodge. We absolutely love the peace and tranquility of sitting on the deck outside our room listening to the river flow by. This year we saw several elk just across the river, and a couple of wild turkeys. We also love the fact that you can hike into... More
