ABOUT THE SAUNA

Handbuilt, woodfired, Lake Superior facing

Nestled conveniently between our cabins and overlooking Lake Superior, our sauna offers the perfect balance of seclusion and accessibility. We have built more than just a sauna; it's an experience crafted for your unwind. 

At Agua Norte, your privacy and uninterrupted serenity matter most. Our sauna operates exclusively on a reservation-only basis, ensuring an undisturbed retreat. Each 4-hour session begins at 7AM, 1PM, and 6PM, offering ample time for you to prepare the sauna, reach your desired temperature — especially during chilly winters, where it might take up to 45 minutes and about 3 stokes — and fully relish the experience before concluding your session.

Below, you'll find our sauna rules, along with how to safely close the sauna after use. These guidelines aim to enhance your experience and ensure a safe, tranquil escape.
