Princeton Cedar 6 Person Electric Barrel Sauna

Product Overview

The Princeton traditional steam sauna is our classic barrel design, which has been a signature product for nearly 40 years. This simple design is highly effective, providing maximum usable space while minimizing excess cubic feet, which means the sauna will heat quickly and efficiently. The Princeton is designed and crafted in the USA and constructed with rustic cedar, a soft lumber that acts as an excellent insulator. The spacious interior is large enough to comfortably sit six individuals.The Princeton is designed using a ball-and-socket- profile held in place by stainless steel bands. Minimal fasteners are used to show off the natural and smooth wood. Like all of our barrel-shaped saunas, the Princeton allows for maximum heat circulation because of the curved walls. The sauna is mounted on polymer support cradles that keep the undercarriage of the sauna from coming in direct contact with any moisture on the ground. The Princeton features a cedar door with a tempered glass window and includes a standard 110-Volt LED light bar to give your sauna a soft accented glow. This barrel sauna comes with a dial-controlled 8.0kW stainless steel heater and 40 lbs. of sauna stones. The sauna will heat to as much as 195°F in under an hour. Sprinkle water on the hot sauna stones for a rejuvenating burst of steam.

Asked by Marcio August 31, 2020

Hi Marcio! This can be used as either a dry sauna or a wet sauna depending on if you sprinkle water over the sauna stones or not. And barrel saunas have proven to do very well in Midwestern winters!

Spa treatment in your backyard!
Easy to assemble. We love our sauna - it looks great and is so relaxing. Does not look very big from the outside but easily fits our family of five. Word of caution - if you add the salt box inside make sure all of the holes drilled through are covered - water got in and the salt started to drip on the heater below - the heater still works great but is no longer clean and shiny! Would highly recommend this sauna!

We've been using our sauna for a week now and it's every bit as good as we hoped it would be. Assembly took some time but the instructions were clear. It easily fits 6 adults, perfect for our family of 5. It warms up quickly, smells amazing, and is all around a fantastic experience and addition to our home.

The sauna is beautiful as expected and any questions I’ve had for Almost Heaven has been answered almost immediately. Purchasing and delivery through Home Depot was a cinch. We had to unpackage some of it on the truck due to the size but it was easy with the help of the delivery man.

Best sauna out there.
This sauna meets every expectation I had. Well crafted with quality materials. Easy to put together. The support through Almost Heaven is amazing. Not one complaint, and only relaxation when I'm in this sauna.

Holy moly, We just build this thing on our roof and I can't begin to talk about how awesome it is. My wife and I are super busy entrepreneurs, parents and hustlers...being able to come back to this thing a couple times a week is a life saver. Feels like a total refresh to our weeks and perfect end to a workout. It really is spacious and fits 6 comfortably. Highly recommend the 6 person so you can lay down fully as opposed to the 4 person. I built this with three friends who were handy (6 hours) and got an electrician to set up the heater for about $250 bucks. This sauna rocks!
