If you've ever longed for a relaxing, rustic, retreat nestled in the forest among spectacular mountains with remote hot springs or a hot pool....this is it. Whether you choose to stay in a tent, RV, yurt, or one of their many cabins...you can't go wrong.

If you like camping, backpacking and youth hosteling, then you will absolutely enjoy your experience at the Sawtooth Lodge. On entry, the narrow six-mile dirt road meanders along the river to the lodge. We call this dirt road washboard effect a mountain message. On arrival at the lodge, the grounds, parking area, campgrounds and cabins appeared well-kept. Stepping into the lodge, we received a warm welcome and noted the crew took serious safety precautions. Posted signs indicated to enter the lodge one at a time to avoid crowding. From reception to cook all staff members wore face coverings inside the lodge. We opted for a cabin with two queen beds in the meadow (cabin #9) with views off the porch to the mountain peaks beyond. Stunning views! The rooms are sparsely furnished with beds, table, sink, cabinets, and a separate bathroom for toilet/shower/sink. The room was exceptionally clean. Cabin #9 had sides A & B. As they were both occupied, we could clearly hear our neighbors talking and walking around. Bring earplugs, in case your neighbors are night owls and you're not. Soft linens were supplied for the comfy beds and fluffy pillows with soap and TP for the bathroom. NO towels are provided for kitchen or bath. No shampoo, soap, conditioner for the shower. A small stove with a supply of wood was available for cold nights. No WIFI. No cell service. There is an old-time landline phone at the lodge. A generator supplies electricity to the cabins until 10pm. Activities abound. We enjoyed horseback riding, hiking the woods, walking to the waterfall, swimming the geothermal pool (emptied and cleaned once a week on Tuesdays), stargazing at the nearby pass, and lounging in the hot springs by the rivers-edge. Happy kids were riding bikes throughout the site. We sampled quite a few tasty meals at the lodge's outdoor dining area, plus wine/beer, delicious shakes and ice cream. We had such a positive experience that we're already planning our next adventure to Sawtooth Lodge in 2021.

We loved the staff at the Sawtooth Lodge; the location is breathtaking. You can walk to natural hot springs in the river, which is really fun. Our cabin was rustic and cute. The 6 mile drive from the main road to access the lodge was very bumpy...be prepared. Our only remark: our cabin could have used a deep scrub :)

We stayed in Cabin 5 for one night and I wish it'd been longer! This place is SUPER remote. Our cabin was just a bed and fireplace, but we were right by the hot spring pool which had a flushing toilet, running water, and shower. There was also a water spout not too far away that we could refill our water bottles with. The scenery is lovely and the staff was super nice. We stayed in July but had to make a fire for the night, but we had to get up every few hours to reload the stove because it got chilly and the cabin had parts of the chinking missing, so we got a cool breeze all night. We also had some noisy neighbors that were up very late chatting just behind us. I wish we could have stayed for a couple of nights...it's really nice to get out without a cell signal or wifi and just relax and explore

I have really enjoyed the lodge and their hospitality. It is a unique experience by itself. The place is situated in the picturesque location - one can only dream of visiting. I guess, if you do not like nature and rustic experience then it’s not for you, but I have enjoyed it very much. Their thermal pool deserves separate mentioning. The water comes right from the hot spring (I have walked there). It felt so good at the end of the day! Have to say a couple of good words about people working there - they are all great and I have felt welcome there. Separate “thank you” goes to Jesse. I certainly hope to come back to this place again!
