Private Sauna available The Private Sauna Experience

Internet (more...)

The Private Sauna Experience is a sauna building next door to four of our rentals: the North Shore Fisherman's Cabin, The Lighthouse, the Aurora and the Writer's Cabin. Only those booking one of those rentals for at least two days have access to the sauna and must book the sauna for their exclusive, all day and evening use for their two night or more stay. If it is November or April, the Sauna is included in your stay if you are the first to book it. Being that the North Shore Fisherman's Cabin is a larger cabin we can only supply up to 4 robes for those guests, but the towels are provided. The bookings for the Sauna are on a first come first serve basis and since they are private, it is possible that the sauna may already be exclusively reserved by another guest and unavailable during your stay. So please check the Sauna booking schedule on this website to verify its availability and book it as soon as you book your cabin. It is a two night minimum and our standard cancellation policies apply. 

This is a well made cedar and pine sauna with lots of room. There is an unheated changing room prior to entering the sauna itself. It is an electric stove sauna and you can sparingly add water to the coals for steam. 20% discount automatically applied for sauna bookings or 3 nights or longer. All nights must be contiguous. There is no running water in the sauna. Additional instructions will be emailed to you once you have placed your reservation here. There is an approximate 50 minute warm up time from the time you turn on the stove timer until it is warm enough (depending on personal preferences). You may use the sauna up to 2x a day for 1.5 hours each time. This is an add on option to your stay at either the Lighthouse, the Writer's Cabin, Fisherman's Cabin or the Aurora. 

The Sauna is centrally located between the North Shore Fisherman's Cabin, the Lighthouse, Writer's Cabin, and Aurora vacation rentals. It is for a maximum of 4 people at a time but we think it is best for not more than 2-3 at one time. If there are no available dates during your stay then we apologize- it is unavailable. For that reason we recommend booking the sauna right here on this page at the same time you book your stay - well in advance. The same cancellation policy applies as to your main reservation for your cabin.

The rate includes one set of fresh, cushy robes if you are renting the Writer's Cabin, Lighthouse, or Aurora. It included 4 cushy robes if you are booking the North Shore Fisherman's Cabin. Extra towels are available in the sauna, and detailed instructions for safe and enjoyable use are sent to you. You can use the sauna up to two times per day. You are welcome to book the sauna for a minimum of 2 nights.  A separate booking must be made here apart from your booking at your lodging to ensure your reservation of the sauna and access to the sauna. There is no need to call us, it can all be handled remotely here. We will receive the order and make sure your robes are waiting for you and the sauna is cleaned.
