“Always feel welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

We continue to return to Swiftcurrent Lodge on the River and we always feel welcome. The cabins are clean and inviting, and the personal "Welcome Back" note that greats us lets us know that we are remembered. We've been able to reserve the upstairs room that overlooks the river, and even when it's chilly, we step out on the deck to listen to the babbling river. Great place, I would (and do) recommend it!

Very clean and quiet, we stayed in room 6 right on the creek side. Clean kitchen and extra futon for watching TV (teens). Patio outside right on the water... such a nice peaceful get away.

Very nice and clean cabins. A little expensive but similar pricing to area lodging. We spent a late May visit here and loved being able to hike into the park from our cabin. Loved having a full kitchen. And great playground for the kids. Also there is a stream that meanders thru the lodging site that is beautiful to watch as well as listen to.

The only drawbacks were the lack of a separate bedroom from living space and the grounds are little small. But very well cared for. Loved our time here. Definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: The units near the stream are quieter.

Fantastic location. We can see the river, past the very active bird feeders on the patio, from our cabin. Its quiet and beautiful. There are short walking trails nearby, or you can walk right into to RMNP and hike the day away. Its sooo close to the meadow where the rutting elks gather. There's a jacuzzi to soothe after all that hiking, so don't forget your swimsuit. I don't know why anyone would stay anywhere else.

We spent a few nights at the Swiftcurrent Lodge early October 2011. We decided to stay here after reading all the positive reviews on tripadvisor. And they are all true! We loved it. What a great and quiet place to stay, thanks to the owner Gary, who has been very friendly and helpful during our stay. And of course its location near Rocky Mountain NP.
Our room 203, facing the river, was very clean (thank you Donna!) and with lots of helpful amenities in the kitchenette and bathroom.
We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the Rockies.

Each Christmas we make our trek from Kansas to Estes Park for a week of snowshoeing and hiking in Rocky. Several years ago we were fortunate to find the Swiftcurrent Lodge.

Gary & Coni are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful lodge situated so close to the park.

The rooms are clean and updated and the area is quiet. The stream running just outside our room (even in the winter) is relaxing and very picturesque.

If you are looking for a reliable place to stay that is always clean and comfortable with owners that are willing to make your stay enjoyable, then choose the Swiftcurrent!

This is our third stay here and each time it was fantastic. Gary and Connie the owners are very helpful and are eager to please. Our room was spotless and had everything we needed. The kitchenette was well supplied and the beds were just like home. It is really a great location right by the river. Every time we are in Estes Park, summer or winter, we will stay at Swiftcurrent.
