This was our second stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge. We love it here. The river, the view, the super clean room - everything is great. Staying several days, we had time to enjoy RMNP, town, and just relaxing in the surroundings of the Lodge. It's everything we need, enough space, and a price you can't beat. I don't know of anywhere... More

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge. The owners keep it immaculate. After a long day of hiking in RMNP, I was able to cool my feet in the roaring stream just 20 feet from out cabin door. The owners were very helpful with information on the National Park just 300 yards away, helped us with reservations at... More

Thank you Diane & Greg for your review. We loved having you stay with us! #4 is quickly becoming a preferred cottage. We're glad that our remodel after the flood is putting smiles on our customers faces! Hope to see you again. More

Having spent eleven nights there we found it an ideal location for exploring the Rocky Mountains National Park. The accommodation suited us admirably, with the ability to cook either indoors or on the outside BBQ - which was situated by the Big Thompson River - - as was the very relaxing and very clean hot tub. Where on my first... More

Had a Great time here at Swiftcurrent Lodge, Coni and Gary were great hosts and our cottage was clean and well stocked. My Wife and I had a very relaxing vacation, and the Swiftcurrent Lodge was a huge part of it. Thanks Coni and Gary we will see you next year.

I can't thank you enough for all you do to make the time here so special and so comfortable. Swiftcurrent really is a slice of heaven. And you have made it accessible while preserving the phenomenonal natural beauty of the site. I think my first visit here was in 2001. I think it's safe to say, I'm a fan for... More

Swiftcurrent Lodge is an awesome place to stay when visiting Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park. If you enjoy privacy and beautiful location, this is the place. Right on the banks of the Big Thompson, you can hike directly into Rocky Mountain National Park from the property. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and homey. There's nothing better than listening to the... More

If you are looking for "five star", look elsewhere. BUT, for comfort, location, friendly innkeepers striving to make your vacation the best possible then book Swiftcurrent. We did and are so pleased with our time there. Housekeeping means just that. Makes it more comfortable really. The location can't be beat, our room was on the rushing river--what a sound to... More

Swifcurrent is right next to the Big Thompson River and Rocky Mt. National Park. By next to it mean that when you walk out your door there is the river, lulling you to sleep and helping you relax as the hummingbirds fly by your head. By next to Rocky Mt. National Park, I mean it is a very short walk,... More

Our cabin was immaculate and cute! The hosts were so courteous and helpful. We would totally stay here again. We enjoyed grilling out back and sitting at picnic tables back there, sitting in the rocking swing, and finally, hot tubbing in the evening, all by the river! My husband and I have stayed at many places in Estes, and this... More

So this is a cute family run place that has cabins and motel like rooms with rustic western decor. Located along big Thompson river. Some rooms face the river and some face the parking lot for the Dunraven Inn restaurant. No breakfast included. Your first nights coffee is free and additional coffee is 75cents so that is inconvenient. No housekeeping,... More

Jackie- We want to thank you for your review. We are terribly sorry that one of our guests was so noisy. We actually had another guest ring our doorbell one evening while you were here and complained about the noise. We approached the noisy guest and believe they quieted down. We were hoping that they didn't bother any other guests,... More
