Product Description

The Hillsboro is an elegant 2-person indoor sauna that is ideal for placement where space is limited. Horizontal and vertical sections of heartwood spruce combine to create a beautiful and healthful accent to your home. For added placement flexibility, this freestanding traditional sauna by Almost Heaven Saunas can be assembled with the door and heater on either the left or right hand sides of the sauna.

Design

The Hillsboro Sauna comes with pre-assembled panels, back rests, and benches. This makes for an easy, clean, seamless assembly. It has a single extra-wide bench and an additional step that can slide beneath the bench for convenience. The Hillsboro is designed for limited space, fitting up to two individuals comfortably. The entire sauna showcases a beautiful blending of vertical and horizontal lines, and smooth thick spruce lumber. This sauna will utilize your existing floor as the floor inside the sauna.

Materials

The Hillsboro sauna is made from lovely, solid sections of high-grade lumber, a distinct, light-colored wood that appeals to modern tastes. The insulated glass door and side glass panels are thick and tempered, offering an open and spacious feel. This sauna will arrive curbside at your home in the form of a kit with pre-assembled panel and ceiling sections, which makes the final installation process in your home as simple as possible. The quality of construction is evident in the precise fit and finish of each and every component. This traditional steam sauna allows you to sprinkle water over the hot sauna stones for an exhilarating burst of steam that engulfs the sauna room. 

Performance

This sauna comes with an 4.5kW heater that is capable of reaching temperatures as high as 195°F, and the solid lumber construction provides exceptional insulation. Sprinkle water on the hot sauna stones for a rejuvenating burst of steam. This can be repeated multiple times throughout the sauna session as a way to add humidity to your dry sauna. Make sure to take cooling breaks and to stay hydrated.

Atmosphere

The Hillsboro is an indoor oasis. The size of this sauna is perfect for any indoor space. It is comfortable for one person to stretch out on the bench, or two to sit side-by-side. There are also many health benefits  that go along with a sauna like the Hillsboro—skin that glows, better circulation, an increased heart rate that gives you a mini workout while you sit and relax. Enhance the atmosphere by adding a few drops of essential oil to your sauna bucket. Then you can be surrounded by calming lavender or rejuvenating eucalyptus. Buckets and ladles can be purchased at our online store, along with other sauna accessories to make an authentic sauna experience.

    Just used my Hillsboro Sauna for the first time and amazingly, I survived! I’m not a fan of heat, I have to admit, but I feel absolutely amazing now that I’ve gotten through it and have had a cool shower. I can actually see myself craving it after I have a chance to adapt to it. I went back and forth on the true Sauna experience and the infrared things, and I know that after doing a ton of research, this is the way to go for the health benefits. Again, I just really doubted my ability to get through the heat that a true sauna has. If you’re sitting on the fence, go for it. If I can manage it, anyone can. 🙂 The customer service so far has been spot on and I’ve really enjoyed working with Almost Heaven. So excited to see the changes in my health that I know are coming.

    Wow ! Wow ! Wow ! Took my first sauna last night and I could not be happier ! As they say “close the door and leave the world behind.” What a perfect space to unwind and cleanse. I purchased the Hillsboro model for smaller size and quicker heat-up. The craftsmanship on this sauna is beautiful, buttery soft wood and solid construction. Made in USA. Thank you Almost Heaven Saunas – Here’s to your health ! – Kris 🙂

    Everything arrived well packaged on an oversized pallet, with no shipping damage.  I wasn’t crazy about the idea of using my existing wood floor as the sauna floor, so ended up going to the big orange store for a sheet of 3/4″ birch plywood made with non-toxic soy based glue and treated it with a clear non toxic sealer.   So far, it’s worked great as a proper built in floor, and I used some of the scrap to build a low back support for the bench when sitting sideways.

    The instructions are well written and illustrated.  The hardware is bagged and labeled by size.  All the torx bits required for assembly are included as well.  There were not enough 5x70mm screws included however so I had to use some similar exterior construction screws I had laying around.  Conversely, there were a bunch of the 4×70 screws left over… 

    They say to just install the screws right into the wood and that it’s normal to hear cracking sounds.  In hindsight, I should have taken a few seconds to drill pilot holes, at least in the bottom rails since one now has a large end split that’s visible when assembled.
    Mostly everything went together without issue.  One simple, low cost addition I made was to staple felt weather stripping on top of the roof support rails.  The roof just sits on the rails with no fasteners, so the felt fills any small gaps and imperfections to better seal in heat. 
    The glass door is very solid and gives the sauna a more open feel, but does not insulate nearly as well as wood however and gets quite warm on the outside during use. The hinges are made in Italy, and are practically works of art..they are even individually serial numbered.

    I would prefer that the final top trim pieces were sent un-cut.  As it is, the front piece was a hair short, and I received two left side pieces but no right.  There will always be slight variation in the final dimensions and for trim, you really want to be able to cut it to fit perfectly.  In the end, customer service was terrific and offered to send out replacement pieces, but I was able to make what I had work.  Luckily, the back trim piece is sent oversized and uncut so I made it into my front trim (the rear trim was unnecessary since it’s against the wall).  I was also able to modify one of the left pieces into a right.

    I consider this more of an oversized one person sauna than a true 2 person. The placement of the heater means that a second person would have to sit sideways on the bench with their legs in the lap of the second person.  The foot stool can tip easily if your weight is not perfectly centered on it.  That being said, the dimensions, heater specs, price point, and reversible door option are perfect for my requirements.
    Now that I’ve gotten to use the sauna a fair bit, the minor assembly gripes are trivial. It’s great to have a quality US and Finnish made home sauna to use whenever I want.  It takes about 30 minutes to warm up to what I consider a minimum usable temp of 170 degrees, and can reach around 185-190 by the end of a session.  Beware of heat induced sap dripping out on the inside walls.
     I am very happy with this sauna, and have recommended it to friends and colleagues.  I’ve used club saunas for years, but now having a private one with zero distractions allows me to reach a calmer, more present state.  I’m confident that the investment will bring many years of enjoyment.
