Bathhouse Questions

Bathhouses are communal spaces where historically people came together to cleanse the body and mind in a social but chill environment.

You can expect that here at Sauna House, but we also made our downstairs sauna a silent sauna for those looking for solitude.

You’ll have access to our showers and locker room, cold shower, cold plunge, traditional cedar sauna, aspen wood wet sauna, lounge areas and heated benches.

Bathing suits for all here at Sauna House!

All guests must shower using soap before entering the facility to ensure the cleanest environment for all.

All guests must sit on a sauna towel in sauna and rinse prior to their cold plunge.

We keep the aspen wood wet sauna at 180 degrees and allow water to be added to the rocks.

The cedar sauna stays around 190 degrees.

The cold showers are 60 degrees and the cold plunge upstairs is 49 degrees and the BlueCube downstairs next to the cedar sauna is 42.

We suggest a circuit that starts off with a hot shower. (We require all guests shower before entry.)

After the hot shower hit the wet sauna upstairs, followed by a cold shower to rinse off before going into the cold plunge.

After the cold plunge hang out and rehydrate in the heated benches for 10 -15 minutes before repeating the process.

Of course this is our suggested circuit, but we encourage guests to move at their own pace and do what feels best for them.
