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...

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...

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...

Hi JJ & Debbie- It was fun to see you two again. Your looking good! Thank you for the review. We did do a lot of work after the flood in Sept 2013. Peaches on the grill sounds yummy. Nice talking to you and catching up. See you soon, we hope. Gary & Coni

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...

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

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...

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...
