Sawtooth Lodge is a hotel in Grandjean that offers a unique experience that no other hotel in the area can match. Located 27 miles east of Lowman and less than three hour’s drive from Boise, these accommodations are on the South Fork of the Payette River and easily accessible.
Since it opened in 1927, the lodge has been a place to stay for people who like nature and want to learn about photography.
Natural Hot Springs
One of the hotel’s main features is a 104 °F outdoor hot springs pool. Bathing suits are mandatory. The pool is drained once a week to clean, but the mineral water comes straight from geothermal wells without being filtered or treated.
Next to Sawtooth Lodge are the Sacajawea Natural Hot Springs, which supply the property with its geothermal water. Getting there from the hotel is about a ten-minute walk and a free, all-natural place to soak. Guests at the lodge appreciate having another easy option for using the hot springs.
Day users and overnight guests are welcome to use the pool. Showers, restrooms, and changing rooms are also available for all swimmers.
The Sawtooth Lodge boasts lots of outdoor activities on or near their property. Horseback riding, wildlife watching, and hiking are just a few ways travelers can enjoy the great outdoors in the area.
Cabins and Camping
There are 11 rustic cabins, two areas for tent camping, and an RV park at Sawtooth Lodge Hot Springs. Every stay comes with access to the geothermal pool, and three meals per day are provided at the main lodge.
The cabins come with a bed (or varying sizes), electricity from 7 am to 10 pm, and are not too far from the restrooms and showers.
The undesignated campsites have fire rings and beautiful views of the surrounding environment. RV spots are available daily, weekly, monthly, or seasonally and have 5-amp electric, water, and septic hook-ups. Electricity is also provided from 7 am to 10 pm daily.
