Product Description

Sauna Design

We first started making our signature Barrel Sauna nearly 40 years ago, and it’s been our most popular sauna option on our product line ever since. Our barrel saunas are assembled using a ball-and-socket profile held in place by stainless steel bands and minimal fasteners. The significance of this configuration is that it maintains a reliable seal while allowing the lumber to expand and contract. The entire unit is mounted on polymer support cradles that loft the undercarriage of the sauna and keep it from coming in direct contact with any moisture on the ground.


Each Barrel Sauna comes partially assembled and features stainless steel hardware, thick tempered glass, and high-grade softwood with smooth edges. Here at Almost Heaven Saunas, we excel at providing a complete package characterized by strict attention to detail. Our standard Barrel Saunas are available in Nordic Spruce, Rustic Western Red Cedar, or Clear Western Red Cedar.


Our U.S.-made Barrel Sauna comes with an appropriately-sized stainless steel heater, stones, bucket, ladle, and combination thermometer/hygrometer so that you may begin enjoying the authentic sauna experience as soon as assembly is complete. These saunas will heat to as much as 195F in under an hour.


The authentic sauna experience provides deep, unparalleled relaxation. Every detail plays a role in providing that kind of environment, like the soft, diffused glow of the interior LED lighting, the intentional installation of a sturdy heater fence, and the positioning of opposite-facing benches that encourage real conversation and genuine interaction. Whether you’re the kind of person who’s looking forward to a private escape, you’re enthusiastic about sharing the multifaceted health benefits of sauna bathing with those nearest and dearest, or you’re a little bit of both at any given time, there’s an Almost Heaven Barrel Sauna for you, a sauna that offers the highest quality, performance, and value!

    • Will the glass fog up during use?

    As with the glass door, the window will fog up when you generate steam from pouring water on the hot sauna stones.  However, when the heat absorbs the steam in the room the window will clear up as well.



    • Will the Vista Window retain heat as well as a solid wood wall? 

    Because of the circular design and efficient use of space within a barrel sauna, there is no measurable loss of heat when ordering the Vista window upgrade.


    • If the glass ever breaks, can it be replaced?

    Certainly!  The exterior trim needs to be removed, a new pane of glass inserted, and then the trim reinstalled.


    • If I already have a barrel sauna can I add the Vista window to my sauna?

    Unfortunately no.  The Vista window is factory installed and there is not a field upgrade option.  It is possible to install a new rear wall to your sauna with the Vista window, and you can contact our sales department for more details.


    • Are there maintenance issues to be aware of?

    Other than periodically cleaning the glass there is nothing more that is needed in the way of maintenance.



    • Are there certain barrel sauna models where the Vista window will not work?

    The Vista window can be installed in all barrel saunas.
