This lodge is nestled against the Big Thompson river and has tables and BBQ equipment available for all residents. The property is literally next to Rocky Mountain National Park, the trail starts at the property line, several hiking trails are right there. The rooms are nice, clean, have direct TV, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. The price point is very... More

Excellent location and perfect view! We stayed in room 201. The Swiftcurrent Lodge has a BEAUTIFUL view of the Big Thompson River with peaceful seating along the river's edge. After a full day of hiking, it was nice to come back to a reserved hot tub and gaze at the beautiful river and mountains. The room was very clean, had... More

My partner and I reserved a cottage in March. When we showed up we were refused service. We were forced to find other lodging in the middle of summer in Estes Park. Never have I been treated so poorly. Unfortunately our children were with us and witnessed how horribly we were treated. I would NEVER recommend staying at this property.... More

This is our second visit to Swiftcurrent and we will surely be back again. The owners are lovely and so friendly and helpful. We have stayed in room 201 both times, and it is always very clean and quaint. The best part is the seating and hot tub right on the river. It is just lovely. You are also right... More

We first stayed at the Lodge in 2009, then 2013 and now in 2016. There is a reason for returning to this gem nestled next to the RMNP. It has excellent service and you feel at home. My wife and I are always sad to leave and long for the day to be back at the Swift Current Lodge. What... More

We stayed for six nights. Swiftcurrent Lodge had everything that our family needed: hot tub, grill, Wi-Fi, and a walking path into RMNP. It is beautiful and relaxing to be alongside the Big Thompson River.

We've been coming to the Swiftcurrent for many years, and continue to be impressed with the wonderful "home away from home" that Gary and Coni have established. From the hot tub overlooking the Thompson River, to the outdoor patios for grilling and relaxing, to the cozy cabins complete with kitchens, to the feeders where we can enjoy watching hummingbirds, I...

We stayed here eight years ago and didn't hesitate for a second in coming back this year! To our great surprise, the improvements done on the property following the flood of a couple years ago have raised the bar even more in terms of comfort, convenience and sheer delight in overnight accommodations. We kept our patio door open during the... More

I stayed here from July1st to July 4th. The room was all set before I arrived. It was clean and cozy. The river behind the lodge is amazing. There are benches to sit and swings facing the river. You can hike to RMNP from behind the lodge.
