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.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge. We took long hikes into the park right from the lodge and then returned to relax next to the Big Thompson River in the afternoon. Swiftcurrent is close to Estes Park and yet tucked away so that you feel as though you are away from the hustle and bustle... More

It makes us happy when we get feedback like yours. Hiking into the Park from here is one of the big bonuses for us. We love talking with our guests and hopefully answering their questions and sharing our 20 years of living here experiences. Just saw our first bear yesterday!! Gratefully- Gary & Coni More

My son and I had the best three days here doing exactly what we wanted. The owners, Gary and Connie, are very accommodating. We wanted to hike so Gary asked me some questions then gave us plenty of options and suggestions to make it more enjoyable. Easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park. Sitting 10 feet from the Big Thompson... More

The owners are fabulous. The location is quiet, but there is plenty to do. I do not believe I have been this relaxed in a long time. The sound of the Thompson river flowing outside the deck was soothing. A welcome packet in the room to guide you through your stay. The owners take pride in their cabins and they... More

My wife an I just got back from spending two weeks in the Estes Park area. I had chosen Swiftcurrent Lodge because of the reviews. This place turned out to be so much better than my wildest expectations. The location was about 2-3 miles out of town and just as described, right on the Upper Thompson River, with the cabin...
