This place is pretty outside but the fire places are difficult to figure out and when you call the front desk nobody is ever there to help and if you leave a message voicing your concern be assured that you will be accosted by Gary the owner. If it wasn,t for their poor customer service i would have enjoyed my stay.  There are plenty of other beautiful places around there to stay so i would recommend somewhere else! Sorry Gary and Connie you really should have treated us better!

We just stayed at the Swift Current Lodge for about a week in June.  It was very comfortable and cozy and the owners do a great job making the place feel like home.  It is well stocked with every kitchen item you might need and each cabin has a grill outside.  

Our cottage was along the river, and there was a nice patio outside that allowed us to enjoy the view while we ate and drank our coffee.  This little spot also seems to be home to no less than three humming birds that regularly feed above the river.   One minor drawback is the proximity to the road, however it isn't busy and the rushing water covers up the sound of passing cars.  

Very relaxing and wonderful, we can't wait to go back!

Room was ok, nothing special, tv very small, bed hard as a rock and caused you
to sweat so must have had plastic cover, the building was a 4 room down 4
room up style and walls paper thin, could hear everyone talking.
Owner, Gary, argued with me over cancellation policy and was very unfriendly.
Very poor attitude for hospitality business.  All the great places will work
with you and are really polite and courteous and usually try hard to please
their guests.  
They were never in office to ask questions.  Parking lot was muddy, got mud
on my boots and on my car, big water hole in driveway exit.
I would NOT recommend this place,  Swift Current is way out in country about 3 miles from town. I will not stay here again.  Already told several friends in Denver to
beware of their 30 day crazy cancellation policy, way over priced over $100 with

LIMITED hot tub availability (30 minutes per room, per day). The hot tub closes at 7 in winter and a little later in summer. No hot tub access in the morning. Oh yeah, checkout is 10 sharp. There are signs in each room warning about another night charge for checking out late. Rooms nothing to write home about. But true reason for the one star rating...we stayed on second floor, the stairs were icy and not cleaned off. I fell down 5 stairs before coming to a stop. No one came out and office was closed. You have to look out for yourself if you stay here!

I love the Swift Current. It's tucked away almost at the end of the road, right before the YMCA in Estes. It shares a parking lot with the Dunraven Inn.
I have spent many nights in the lodge, the top room that overlooks the Big Thompson river is my favorite. We go during the off season because it's so cheap. About $60 a night. I have never stayed in the cottages along the river, but my parents have. . They were the ones who recommended this place to me and my husband. The cottages are closed  during the winter
It is so romantic and cozy in the winter time, there is a small hot tub right along the river, and when it's cold and snowing, there is nothing better than to soak in it with a bottle of red wine!
The owners are so nice, they know our names. Every time we return there is a welcome back note in our room.
The Swift Current is very basic, do not expect a 5 Star resort here. You've got a comfy bed, a nice view of the river and beautiful scenery. When you visit Estes, you don't spend much time in your room anyway!
