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.

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...

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.

We stayed at the swift current lodge for 2 weeks of relaxation. It is the perfect place to hear & enjoy the Big Thompson river, the town of Estes park, the rocky mtn. National park, hiking trails, or just sitting by the river reading. I would go there again if we were to revisit the area.
