Nice cheap shot at people who tried to help you out of a mess you created. My wile and I have stayed at the Swift Current Lodge both Spring and Fall for years and we have always found Coni and Gary willing to go above and beyond to accommodate their guests. If you chose not to stay at the lodge... More

This was my first time staying at the lodge (we stayed in cabin#4 for 3 nights). The cabin was sparkling clean and tastefully decorated, kitchen was well equipped. My mom and I felt safe, welcome, and comfortable. I highly recommend staying there.

Hi Ofelia- It was a pleasure having you as our guest. Your 82 year old Mother is amazing. We can't say enough about all the wonderful people we have as guests. Sincerely- Coni & Gary More

This was our first visit to Swiftcurrent. The resort is more affordable than most I looked at online. When we arrived we were concerned about the close proximity of our cabin (#4) to the highway. Our concern was unfounded because the sound of the river drowns out the highway noise. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our cabin was... More

Hi Ginger & Guy- Thank you for your kind review. We are so lucky to be only 300 yards from Rocky Mtn National Park. We just had a big bull elk lounging in the meadow across the river yesterday. The elk rut will be starting in the next couple weeks! We hope to see you again in the future. Gary... More

We were not told that our 3 and 4 year old kids counted as adults when we made our reservations. We paid for a 2 night stay and made it to Estes Park around 9pm. The owner wouldn't let us stay because we had our children with us and would not refund our money. We had to sleep IN OUR... More

Jamie- We appreciate all feedback and are sorry that your experience was not a happy one. When you arrived at 8pm, you informed us that you had not originally planned on bringing your children and understood that the room you reserved on-line was only able to accommodate two people. Our on-line system would not have allowed you to reserve that... More

This was my third time staying at the lodge. Gary and Coni are terrific folks who never cease to amaze me with their ability to make you feel totally at home. The property sits adjacent to the Thompsom River and is literally within a few hundred yards via a short walk into Rocky Mountain National Park. It has stood the... More

This place is a hidden gem. We were attending a conference at the YMCA (just a 1/2mile away) but wanted our own quiet space away from it all. The owners Coni and Gary made us feel so welcome and comfortable, with every need attended. The sound of the Big Thompson outside our cabin lulled us to sleep at night. An... More

We arrived later than planned, but found Cabin #10 ready and waiting for us! It was roomy, clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was perfect with the Big Thompson River just out our back door. The hot tub was a great place to relax and soak after a day of hiking in RMNP. The location was perfect... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the tranquility of this place. The cabin was exceptionally clean. The bathroom was up to date and very clean better than the hotels we stayed at before. The price is great for this area. The hiking paths were very nice and easily accessible. I highly recommend this place.

So relaxing and peaceful! We slept with the windows open, the river right outside our window was so calming!!!! We will be making this a yearly destination!!! Just 300 yards from Rocky Mountain National Park and such a short distance to everything in Estes Park.

This place was a pretty cool. The river in the back is just beautiful. The price very affordable. It was clean & well maintained. The bed was uncomfortable, but for the price, we didn't expect perfection. There is no maid service, you have to take out your own trash. It's a bit noisy, it's off the road just a bit.... More
