This trip was for our Christmas break. My son, his girlfriend and myself left STL and headed out. We stayed in Cabin #5 for 5 days and loved it. This was my 2nd time in that cabin and this was their first time. Though we had been to RMNP prior this was the first time during the winter. The cabin...

We were planning on staying two nights, but it was so good that we stayed an extra night. Coni & Gary know what hospitality is, they are doing a great job. The hot tub is very nice, overlooking the river, especially at sunset. The room was spacious and very clean.I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed in Cabin #1 for a week and loved it. This was our first time to RMNP and we were celebrating out 23rd wedding anniversary. Cabin #1 was cozy, comfortable and VERY clean.

To be honest, after our trip to Rocky Mountains, Mt.

I really mean it. Not just because the cabin was...

My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights in August, 2012. We stayed in the lodge and enjoyed the clean room with simple decoration of cabin decor. The lodge reminded me of visiting a family home with the hosts being welcoming and helpful regarding the area. The sound of the river and its beauty which could be enjoyed just steps...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Swiftcurrent. Our cabin was very well kept, clean, and had a fully stocked kitchen. It was great that we had our own gas grill to use outside. You simply can't beat this location with it being right on the river and a short walk to RMNP. They have lots of rules...

Our 3-night stay here was the exclamation point to our 5-week trip to the Northwest. Our clean, well-appointed efficiency room on the Big Thompson River was the perfect respite after our hiking and sightseeing. Friendly hosts, Gary and Coni, made us feel at home while we visited Estes Park and the Rockies. We highly recommend Swiftcurrent lodge to anyone visiting...

We make the trip to Rocky Mountain Nat'l. Park as often as we can. It's a great park for hiking. However, there is no lodging within the park. So the best place to stay for your visit is Swiftcurrent Lodge. It is located adjacent to RMNP, so you can actually hike into the park, then take the shuttle bus to...

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.
