Swiftcurrent Lodge On The River
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed the tranquility of this place. The cabin was exceptionally clean. The bathroom was up to date and very clean better than the hotels we stayed at before. The price is great for this area. The hiking paths were very nice and easily accessible. I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Choose a cabin with a river view.

We will be making this a yearly destination!!!
Just 300 yards from Rocky Mountain National Park and such a short distance to everything in Estes Park.

This place was a pretty cool. The river in the back is just beautiful. The price very affordable. It was clean & well maintained. The bed was uncomfortable, but for the price, we didn't expect perfection.
There is no maid service, you have to take out your own trash. It's a bit noisy, it's off the road just a bit. You can hear the other patrons bumping around. The hiking trail just off the grounds is worth the stay here. However it should be noted, this is a horse trail also. For folks on a budget, it would be a great place. If you are use to a good bed & high thread count sheets & maid service, you might look at other lodges. All & all it was thrifty & pretty nice.

Hi Cayla-
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate all feedback. We are disappointed that your review was just average. Our goal is to be above average with a good price point. We buy higher end medium-firm mattresses and hope that everyone gets a good nights sleep. We hope to have you back to enjoy our little piece of heaven.

We recently stayed at Swiftcurrent Lodge for the second year in a row. If you want daily housekeeping service and a large bathroom, this place isn't for you. But, if you want a relaxing and comfortable vacation at a place with owners who are friendly and responsive, then book a room here when you travel to Estes Park. The river is just steps away from your cabin, the common area has plenty of BBQs, picnic tables, and seating right on the water. The owners, Gary and Coni, are available to help when you need it, yet respect your privacy. They can recommend restaurants, hiking trails either in RMNP or the surrounding area, or other activities in the area. When we had a problem with our heater in our room, Gary fixed it promptly and then checked with us a couple of times to be sure that it didn't give us any more problems. He also gave us an electric heater just in case the pilot light went out again on the gas heater. The wifi worked well and the living/kitchen area was comfortable. Last year, we had to move from cottage #12 to one of the lodges on the second floor because #12 was already booked the last night we were staying in Estes Park. Gary not only made sure that the housekeeper cleaned our new room first thing in the morning, he moved our suitcases to the new room and gave us the key right away. This year we stayed in cottage #9. The lodge is located very close to RMNP and away from the hustle-bustle of the town of Estes Park. Both years, we were aware of other guests, but were not bothered by any noise, even during the day. We would gladly return to Swiftcurrent when we travel to Estes Park again.

My wife and I having been coming to Swiftcurrent Lodge for a number of years. I wish I could say how many times we've stayed, but I've lost track - maybe 7 or 8 different trips. We've never looked for another spot because it's perfect. Immaculately clean, close to everything, and most of all, very friendly owners. I highly recommend Swiftcurrent Lodge.

This was our second stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge. We love it here. The river, the view, the super clean room - everything is great. Staying several days, we had time to enjoy RMNP, town, and just relaxing in the surroundings of the Lodge. It's everything we need, enough space, and a price you can't beat. I don't know of anywhere else in Estes that has a river spot like Swiftcurrent and definitely not a direct walk into RMNP. Lots of places are on the river, but this is just different somehow. The lodge sits between two bends in the river and is cozy. We will keep this as our number one place to reserve. Thanks to the owners who make it possible to have such a great place in God's beautiful creation, take care of it, and treat guests so kindly.

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay at Swiftcurrent Lodge. The owners keep it immaculate. After a long day of hiking in RMNP, I was able to cool my feet in the roaring stream just 20 feet from out cabin door.
The owners were very helpful with information on the National Park just 300 yards away, helped us with reservations at a local restaurant on the busy July 4 weekend and even shared their "secret" spot for seeing Estes Park's tremendous fireworks.
It is also very handy to walk across the parking lot to one of the best restaurants in town - Dunraven Inn.
I'd make my reservations well ahead, since they have a lot of repeat business. We did not reserve as early as we should so we had to use two different rooms. The first one had a king size bed while the second one, the bed was a little cramped. But we knew that upfront as the owners gave accurate descriptions of the room when making reservations. The bathrooms were small but adequate.
If we return to Estes, we would hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: Room # 4 was super, with a full kitchen, gas grill, king bed, and a mountain stream right out the w...

Thank you Diane & Greg for your review. We loved having you stay with us! #4 is quickly becoming a preferred cottage. We're glad that our remodel after the flood is putting smiles on our customers faces! Hope to see you again.
