Swiftcurrent Lodge On The River
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We have been going to Estes Park for years. First time at Swiftcurrent. Wish we would have found it sooner. We love being so close to the river. We had our own private space with a table and chairs and a bench facing the water. We were in #4. A beautiful spot. We would go hiking in the park in the morning and come back in the afternoon to relax by the river and have a snack. We felt very close to town but yet far removed. Cabin was immaculate. The bathroom was very small, but fit our needs. Kitchen was nice to have for breakfast, making lunch and stocking our food for hiking and snacks. Would stay there again and maybe try a winter trip.

We stayed in cottage number 1 and were very satisfied. It is a cosy and clean place, runned by helpful and friendly people.
You can sit by the river at the back of your own cottage, there are several walking trails into the Rockies just 300 yards away from the property, outside the offiche you can watch the hummingbirds, you can have a barbecue or cook your own meal in the well supplied kitchen (we really enjoyed that cause I missed cooking),...
I recommend staying at the Swiftcurrent Lodge if you love to relax in the outdoors.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Swiftcurrent Lodge on the River in Cottage #1. Our only regret is that we only stayed for 2 nights. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay. The river was beautiful and lulled us to sleep each night. We had so much fun hiking the trails that led into Rocky Mountain National Park...so much scenery, it was unreal. The cottage was immaculate with a fully equipped kitchen and propane grill on the patio, right by the river. Coni and Gary are wonderful and our stay here couldn't have been better. We can't wait to come back :)

Having been here 2 times, I can say with all honesty that I love this place. If you are looking for a place to relax, refresh and get rejuvinated, this place is for you. Sit by the river and watch the hummingbirds or take a walk out your back door to the RMNP. The rooms are great and the owners are even better! I even planned my whole trip around this place so I knew I could enjoy the rockies the way they were ment to be enjoyed.

Room Tip: my favorite room is room 6 if you love hearing the river and sitting on the deck watching the world...

Found Swiftcurrent Lodge by chance...and so glad that we did!! Stayed in cabin #2 and loved it! So relaxing right on the river...just sitting and listening to the Big Thompson. And a great locaction! You can walk in RMNP ....but even better than that, the lodge is located right next to the Dunraven Inn! We just really had a wonderful time. Already thinking of maybe planning a fall trip!

We were so pleased that we found Swiftcurrent Lodge. This was my first time in the Rockies and Swiftcurrent was the perfect place for us to begin our trip. We found ourselves wishing that we could stay longer but other parts of CO were calling! The cabins are located right on the river. There was nothing like coming in from a day of sightseeing and exploring to settle down on the patio and watch the river rush by. Add a glass of wine to the picture and you have pure bliss! The cabins are small but perfectly outfitted with everything one wants or needs. Having the trail right into RMNP was great. We took a moonlit stroll up the trail and along the river a couple of nights - very romantic! Gary and Coni are the perfect hosts. Their knowledge of the area was very much appreciated. They tailored their advice to our tastes and gave us excellent suggestions. I definitely recommend this place. And we definitely hope we can stay there again!

Room Tip: Cabin one was ours. It was right on the end and easily accessible. The road was close but traffic...

We were greeted kindly at the office and even were able to check in early. The staff is warm and leave you to yourselves. The cottage was adorable and clean but the best part was the patio out the back door or our room. The river was gorgeous and calming. I would recommend this place to anyone that needs to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and just relax and enjoy nature.

Room Tip: Cottage #2 is perfect for couples
