Grandjean started in the early 1880's with a trapper named Emil Grandjean. He eventually became the Forest Supervisor of the Boise National Forest in the early 20th century. In the remnants of a Forest Service station, a colorful lady named Babe Hansen who was a guide and packer opened the Sawtooth Lodge in 1927.

The original lodge is still in use and serves as the lobby and kitchen for the current lodge. A small restaurant area has been added to the back of the original structure and serves as the focal point for guests at the Lodge. Meals are served from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Their huckleberry milkshakes are famous and can be enjoyed just about any time of day.
