The Barrel Sauna has been a signature product for nearly 40 years. This simple design is highly effective, providing maximum useable space while minimizing excess cubic feet, which means the sauna will heat quickly and efficiently. Exceptionally functional and uniquely attractive, a Barrel Sauna brings distinction to any backyard or home environment.
Our saunas are available in a variety of lumber options: Clear Western Red Cedar, Rustic Western Red Cedar, Nordic Spruce and Hemlock Fir. These are our preferred lumber choices because they are all naturally resistant to rot, decay, and mildew, making them great for either outdoor or indoor application. They carry no harmful toxins or respiratory discomfort, which is an important feature due to the extreme temperature of a sauna.
Each Almost Heaven Sauna comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects on all components. We will replace any component of the sauna room that fails due to manufacturing defect at no charge to you, in accordance with our Limited Warranty.
Saunas can be drop-shipped anywhere in the USA for a flat fee of $250. Delivery time is approximately 2-3 weeks.

We first started making our signature Barrel Sauna nearly 40 years ago, and it’s become a popular option on our product line ever since. The Barrel Sauna is 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 either clear or rustic Western red cedar, a lovely and aromatic lumber that is specially chosen because of its natural resistance to mold and mildew.
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 a sauna for you, a sauna that offers the highest quality, performance, and value!
