Since I wasn't allowed to make a reservation, I can't review the actual property, only the service I received while trying to book a room. I tried to book a room online and was having trouble, so I called and spoke with Gary to make a reservation. Gary informed me that they didn't have anything for the 2 nights that...

My wife and I stayed late in the season in mid-October. The fireplace made it a cozy set up. The location along the river as well as the hot tub outdoors ​near the river were spectacular. There's also a quaint little hiking trail that leads from the place. We will very likely stay here again.

Absolutely splendid. Cozy rooms right on the Big Thompson. Mere steps from Rock Mountain National Park. Oh, and did I mention the hot tub? Stayed here in November during the 'off season' but it was totally ON! We were met with perfect weather and a magnificent staff. Added bonus of the Dunraven Inn next door which was a great place...

We stayed in Lodge #6 last month for a couple of relaxing days. All of the pictures you see are exactly what you can experience. Peace, tranquility, beauty beyond belief, and complete relaxation. After an hour there, a family of elk wandered by, drinking in the big Thompson River which was 10 feet from our deck. The sound of the...

While planning a last minute trip to Colorado, my husband and I were fortunate enough to get a room at the Swiftcurrent Lodge. We stayed in a lodge room, not a cabin. Our room was modest, clean and comfortable. Had all we needed. With the beautiful surroundings we were only in our room to sleep. We liked that we were...
