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.

My son (17) and I stayed in room 12 for 3 nights. I cannot say enough good things about Swiftcurrent and the owners! You can tell they really care about their guests...and I know since I went to their office the first night like 3 times to ask questions! (I never felt like a bother to them) Our room had... More

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

We stayed at Swiftcurrent for a three-day getaway from the city. We met Gary and he was a wonderful host. (We did not meet Coni.) This is an historical site, located very close to Rocky Mountain National Park. Ask Gary to see the old photographs of when the gas station and store were in operation. The lodge is located on...

The room we stayed in was perfect. It had a refrigerator, microwave and small coffee maker. There was a lovely private balcony that we could sit on and relax. I even got up very early my first morning and sat out there and an Elk walked right below me. Amazing. The river was right there and the backyard was practically... More

This place was a wonderful getaway and lifetime experience for my family and I. My husband and I brought our two boys 9 and 6 out here. We had a wonderful time walking the trails and seeing everything they had to offer. We plan on coming back again!

Really enjoyed the setting and location of the lodge. Great walking trails right out the door with fabulous views and the peaceful sound of the river. The rooms were clean providing all that you need for a few days of R&R. Would highly recommend!!

To keep it short and simple, Gary and Coni were absolutely WONDERFUL and their love for what they do is very apparent. The entire Swiftcurrent Lodge community was well-kept and the folks working were super friendly. Gary had some wonderful suggestions on hiking. They are both a bundle of knowledge on the area! We truly felt at home for the... More

This place is wonderful. Attention to detail is apparent. Also spotlessly clean. I was in number 6 for a week and it was perfect. The river is right outside the door. Also the river is just outside the window above the beds. It lulled me to sleep every night. I highly recommend Swiftcurrent Lodge. It is just far enough out... More
