“Stay in the woods without camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This Inn is located on the beautiful Kancamagus Highway. Don't worry if you are sensitive to traffic noises, it is not much of a highway! We kept the windows open all night and didn't really hear anything at all. The Inn is a big, tudor style building that is set back from the road behind some trees. The rooms are quite large, very comfortable and spotless. Each room seems to have large mural-like wallpaper. The decor is a little outdated, but the rooms are very nice. We really appreciated the mini fridge, microwave, DVD/VHS player and hair dryer! One nice touch is a large library of DVDs and VHS tapes in the breakfast room for you to borrow.

A simple continental breakfast is included. They have a variety of cereals and breads, bananas, apples, juices, yogurts and coffee. Its not a heavy breakfast (there are plenty of restaurants in the area if you want something more) but just enough to make you feel at home and to start off your day.

The Inn keepers are an extremely friendly and helpful couple who are very kind and welcoming, and live on the premises. In the lobby of the Inn, they have pictures on display of the Inn being built. You can tell how much they love their Inn and take pride in it. I would definitely return to this Inn as its a rare opportunity to stay on the Kancamagus Highway and not have to be in a tent!

Our family stayed one night at the Swift River Inn after a tour of the Kancamagus Highway. The Inn is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and complete with refrigerator and microwave. There is free wi-fi and a dvd/vhs player in the room and an extensive movie collection in the common room. The owners, Janice and Joe were very helpful with providing information about the surrounding area attractions and restaurants. The Inn is located in a peaceful wooded setting minutes away from the bustle of the outlet shops located in Conway.

We stayed at the Swift River Inn over President's Day weekend. Originally planning on staying in North Conway we were able to find better prices outside of town. The Swift River Inn is only about 15 minutes from downtown and was attractively priced at $79 per night. We found both of the owners to be friendly and very accommodating. We were granted a larger room for the same price, as the Inn had empty rooms to choose from. The Inn and our room were very outdated, being built in 1979 it seems as not much has changed. However, our room was very clean, which allowed us to have a comfortable night's stay despite the very apparent age of the decor and furnishings. The Swift River Inn is a good choice if you are looking for relatively inexpensive lodging in close proximity to hiking, biking and swimming along the Kanc. (Located on the Conway side of the Kanc you are literally minutes from popular swimming holes and hiking trails.) If you are looking for a relaxing accommodations with modern amenities the Swift River Inn may not be your cup of tea.
