Each year our vacation to RMNP and Swiftcurrent Lodge get better and better! Our hosts are always friendly and accomodating. Our lodge was perfect for us as usual.....clean, convenient and right on the roaring river. Best vacation ever. We will continue our annual visits! Thank you!

We stayed here in July in Lodge #9 and appreciated the quiet setting by the fast flowing Big Thompson River.Evenings were spent sitting by the river on the individual seats assigned to each unit, watching the hummingbirds dance above the water. Our unit was basically furnished, with a kitchenette, small bedroom and small bathroom . The double bedroom was cramped...

We make an annual visit to Estes Park, and since we found Swiftcurrent several years ago, we've never stayed anywhere else. Our favorite rooms are Lodge 203 and 204, they have a small balcony that overlooks the Big Thompson River. It is a great value and a beautiful and relaxing location. You can hike into RMNP . . . which...

Enjoyed our stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge tremendously. Very peaceful and relaxing with the Big Thompson River running just steps away for the lodge and cotages. The owners were very accomodating, as well. Rates were very reasonoable. Dunraven Inn is right on the property and is an excellent place to dine.

I know they promote quiet time from 9pm on, but no one abides by this. The parking was very tricky also. We came back several nights...

Stayed here for three nights in August 2012 - Room 201. In my opinion, you can't find a better value in Estes Park. The cozy lodge backs up to the Big Thompson River, and appears to be the last lodge on Highway 66. It's about a five minute drive to the crowded downtown Estes park, and close to the park...

My wife and I stayed in unit 9. The area is very busy this time of year and all the cabin type accommodations seem in heavy demand. The Big Thompson River runs through (or by) this property. It is a great feature for this property as noted by all who review this establishment. A nice Italian restaurant is very close......

David, Thank you for your comments. We appreciate you bringing to our attention the "broken" futon. We did find a bolt missing and have made the necessary repair. We pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our rooms and so are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Hope to see you again some day.

In over twenty years of my wife and I visiting Estes, Swiftcurrent is the only place we have stayed more than once. Nice location and owners that take pride in their lodge. Simply stated we will be back.
