I try to never give bad reviews here but.......this place is terrible. Staff was unfriendly. We rented a cabin ($135 for a night). It was basically a dump. The floors are plywood and not particularly clean. Beds were terrible. I took one look at the shower and knew I wasn't stepping foot in it. Water was sketchy. And they neglected... More

that you have to travel to access the cabins. I expected it to be rustic but for $100/night I didn't expect the electricity to not be working 95% of the time or that I would have to drive across a stream and a sink hole to get to the main lodge. The bed was super hard and while the cabin... More

The Sawtooth Lodge is a pretty remote endeavor and as other reviews have stated one has to have realistic expectations of what it is. The living is austere and there are going to be some hiccups no matter what. Power isn't always reliable ditto for water and fancy hookups for behemoth machines. However, there is a lot of history here... More

If you are looking for the Hilton you won't be happy. If you are looking for a genuine wilderness experience with the amenity of being able to come back from a day of hiking to a hotspring feed pool, a lodge with good food and very comfortable beds in the cabins you will have a great time.

We stayed here in the past and had a very positive experience. It is very rustic and the power shuts off around 10pm (good to know, we didn't know our first stay). The new management is very lazy and not very helpful. When we walked in the door we had to ask 3 young boys sitting at a table if... More

While the very young adults working at this lodge are certainly earnest enough they are clueless about how to run a "resort". I did not see anyone working at this place that looked like they had a clue. For example, our servers at dinner while willing were sweaty, soiled and amateurish.It reminded me of the type of service (and food)... More

From the time we arrived until we left 24 hours later, this was an awful experience. First, our reservation was confirmed for a specific site, and when we arrived were given a different site. No manager around, only two young guys old enough to smoke, but no customer service skills, but did the best they could. We took our trailer... More

My family has been hosting reunions at the Sawtooth Lodge over the past 6 years and our experiences have been nothing but enjoyable. The staff are very accommodating and welcoming and our cabins have always been very clean. The hot spring heated pool is a luxury to return to after a day of hiking or horseback riding, and there is... More

Been going to grandjean for 18 yrs and have always had a wonderful time and have experience a friendly and helpful staff until this trip.Upon arriving we were told there was no room for us and that we'd have to go up the road to the forest service campground which was fine; in the process of spending over 100.00 bucks...
