I have been repeat customer ever since I found this Inn! Janet and Joe make you feel at home. The Inn had the best of both worlds when it comes to location as it is right on the Kancamagus Highway. You are close enough to North Conway for your shopping but far enough that you get the quiet and solitude... More

We have been guests here on vacation for the past 6 years. You could not ask for better Hosts on your vacation than Janet and Joe.The rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable, and the Continental Breakfast is a plus.

Stayed for 3 nights in October. Janet and Joe were the highlight, they were a font of information and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, providing maps, directions, and recommendations. The room was very large and comfortable, equipped with a fridge, although this rattled during the night, and a microwave. Breakfast was a self service continental... More

This property borders a forest and is close to Conway, but is not in Conway - where there are many restaurants including Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Italian, and Seafood. The innkeepers are nice, but the place needs some updating. There are two cats in residence. Our room was a good size and there was a bath and shower. The bed was... More

Although this inn is very close to Conway NH, suprisingly it did not show up on the Tripadvisor pages for Conway or even their expanded map. We stayed for two nights on a weekend in July and found the hosts to be very helpful. The room and double beds were very comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was choice of cereals,... More

This small hotel is an unreconstructed "retro" kind of place, clean and inexpensive. The beds were comfortable and the room good-sized. Everything worked as it should, although the furniture, fixtures, decor (such as it is), landscaping, etc. all could benefit from top-to-bottom updating. The best features of the place are the murals on the room and hallway walls--space shuttle and... More

The Swift River Inn is a great deal for hikers, bikers, and swimmers. It's in a beautiful setting backing up to evergreen trees. Our room was very large and quite clean. The decor is what I'd call "early marriage" with this dresser from mom and dad, that chair and lamp from the yard sale, and the little table and chairs... More

This "Gem" in the Mountains and woods has got to be the best kept secret in Northern NH. Close to all the attractions ( closer actually ) with easy access to the Swift River, the "Kanc" Highway and all that Conway and Lincoln have to offer ( without all the hustle and bustle and traffic ). If you want or... More
