Sauna Pods

Why Pod?

Try these hot new spaces - to ease the Hill chill or the hike ache with your friends or date, before you head home or to your cabin.

Unlike the box sauna of gym – these pods enhance your sense of place. The view as you drive up to your cedar sauna pod will delight you and your companions; then the Hocking Hills view from the inside will make you melt.

Like traditional sauna baths, sauna pods are an enclosed space with a dry heat source – an environment intended to open your pores and make you sweat, while easing tensions in tight muscles. Our sauna pods are cedar lined and wrapped – a built-in aromatic experience – comfortable on your skin, even when hot. Customize your experience by adjusting the temperature, creating steam – by ladling water over the heat source, experimenting with the mood-altering chronotherapy (That’s “lighting” to you and me), and playing music from your mobile device.

Unlike the sauna tucked away in your gym’s locker room, sauna pods are mobile and set out in nature. We’ve taken that tip from the hearty Finns credited with developing the practice of sitting in hot caves – and have improved on the design: placing them with views of rocks, instead of barricading you inside of a cave with rocks. A floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, fish-eye window encourages you to be still and to contemplate a singularly beautiful view.

Come back to see that view in another season. Or try another sauna pod, for another great view. More coming soon.

1What is a sauna?
It is an enclosed space with a dry-heat source, designed to open a people’s pores and to make them sweat. And the experience feels really good.
A sauna pod is a free-standing sauna unit. Ours are cylindrical and feature a - wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, tinted, domed window. Both the outside and inside are Western cedar wood – for built-in aroma therapy, antibacterial properties and great looks. The entrance is through a small changing room. The sauna is lined with a bench seat and a reclining seat. A third seat fits into the domed window. It seats four comfortably. It is equipped with a Bluetooth speaker and chromotherapy lighting, so bathers may customize their experiences.
A sauna pod fits four people comfortably. The ceiling height in the center is just over 6 feet tall. From interior door to window is 7 feet. The exterior is 16-feet long and 10-feet tall.
A sauna is about the heat; A steam room is about the humidity.
The ideal temperature is 120 – 150F.
