Yes I came back! I've tried other places but decided to come back to the Swiftcurrent Lodge for another vacation. I was not disappointed. It's clean, comfortable and on the river. The sound of the splashing waters lull you to sleep or relax you as you watch them rushing by. The hiking thru the woods is breath taking and the... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. We stayed in cottage #2. It was perfect for what we needed - a clean place with a comfortable bed, bathroom and kitchenette. The Big Thompson river flows right outside the door, so the sound is very soothing when going to sleep. Only thing I would change is I wish they... More

We have been coming to Swiftcurrent for years and have never been disappointed. Peaceful and the fact that it backs up to Rocky Mountain Park is awesome. One of the finest restaurants in Estes is within walking distance. Swiftcurrent is the only place we stay when in Estes Park.

When we return to Estes Park, we will be staying at Swiftcurrent again and would not consider staying anywhere else. The rooms were perfect for our needs, with our covered porch just steps from the river. The property is just a few yards from total access to Rocky Mountain National Park and to very walk-able trails for those of all... More

Hi Wendy- We so appreciate your wonderful review. We are so lucky to be the stewards of this special place so near to RMNP. After 20 years here, it is still hard to believe that the Park is our backyard. What a blessing to have guests like yourself. We look forward to your next visit. Thank You! More

The Rooms were Comfortable and clean. The scenery was amazing.The babysitter called the office looking for me at 7pm and the owner Gary came with his phone and let me use it. We will visit again, with the Kids next time.

We had a wonderful time! Mr. Gary and his wife were very generous people which made our stay very comfortable. The flowing river just beneath our balcony was very peaceful! Not to mention, the surrounding views were breathtaking and the location was perfect. Our room was super clean, quaint, and cozy! All in all, this place exceeded our expectations. We... More

Swiftcurrent is our favorite place to stay in Estes Park. This was our third stay there. It is close enough to everything you need, but peaceful and relaxing, especially the cottages that sit right on the river with private patios. The hot tub is right next to the river and amazing after a long day of hiking in RMNP.

We stayed in cabin 9, which was fully furnished with anything you may need for a weeks stay or longer. It was small, but perfect for a couple.
