Getting a sauna was the best thing we did last year and we are so thankful that we were able to work with real pros to make it happen.  Every time I'm out there I marvel at how beautiful and functional the barrel design is and how easy it is to keep clean.  I highly recommend Sanctuary Sauna.

Sanctuary Sauna was so accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Not only did we get what we paid for and assembly went smoothly, I already feel like I’m getting lots of get wellness benefits. And the sauna before bed has been lovely for winding down after long work days.  Jess shared so much of her wisdom about sauna culture, maintenance and care, and resources. 10/10 would recommend Sanctuary Sauna to anyone interested in purchasing a barrel sauna for their home.

We LOVE our barrel sauna! It was so nice to work with Sanctuary Saunas and have Jess’s years of experience and support to introduce us to the wonderful world of sauna. From clear communication to thoughtful accessory touches, Sanctuary provided all the resources we needed to create our own sauna haven.

After our road trip around Finland, we knew sauna needed to be part of our daily lives. Jess welcomed us first to the Löyly community in Portland, and then helped bring warmth to our backyard with a barrel sauna. She was there to support us throughout the whole buying and building process, and even invited us to come check out her own backyard saunas when we were considering which model to get. It was so wonderful working with someone who loves sauna as much as we do. We’re so thankful for Jess and enthusiastically recommend Sanctuary Saunas. Kiitos!

We are LOVING our sauna! We’ve had it for a week and we’ve used it every single day, multiple times. It’s the perfect size for our small patio and really enhances the space and looks gorgeous. We’re truly in love— thank you!

I cannot underscore how much my mood has skyrocketed in the past couple of months since I installed my barrel sauna in the backyard! After a year of feeling tight and wound-up and tense, I can finally feel my bones move beneath my skin again. It feels delicious!
