This is a quiet little lodge where relaxation is the priority. It is located on the beautiful Big Thompson River and surrounded by mountains. We were able to walk into Rocky Mountain National Park and take the shuttle bus to any trailhead or attraction. We chose from a variety of cabins to suit our needs. Each cabin has a fully equiped kitchen, a bbq grill, updated bathrooms, patio or deck, internet access, parking, and many other amenities listed on their website. There is a hot tub right next to the river for a fabulous view. Our favorite activity is relaxing by the river after a beautiful hike in the park.
The town of Estes Park is nearby. It is one of the cleanest towns we've ever visited. The shops are all within view of the mountains and rivers. There are many different restaurants to choose whatever kind of food you want.
The innkeepers at Swiftcurrent were very helpful and gave us a lot of information about activities in RMNP and in town. They also gave us restaurant menu guides.
We have been visiting this lodge for several years and we will definitely return for another relaxing visit! It's just that kind of place.
