1. St. Esprit Lake Wilderness Holiday

At St. Esprit Lake Wilderness Holiday, you will find a private cottage that will allow for a peaceful upscale vacation within nature that you’ve always dreamed of. Relax by the lake before lounging in their luxurious outdoor hot tub. After you take a dip in the hot tub sit in the outdoor sauna and breathe a sigh of relief as your stress melts away.

2. Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort 

Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort just completed their brand new barrel sauna! Build up a great sweat while enjoying wintery views over the Atlantic ocean. In addition to their barrel sauna, Cabot Shores has an infrared sauna available for guests for just $35.00 a session (30 minutes). This infrared treatment helps filter out UV radiation and provides you with infrared heating, which raises your metabolism, causing you to sweat and release toxins, as well as muscle tension. You can book a session or two as an add-on package to your stay, or if you happen to be in the area, you can book one to treat yourself.

4. Cabot Coast Cottages

Located just north of Inverness and overlooking Chimney Corner, Cabot Coast is home to many unique cottages. Guests staying at the Observatory Cottage will be treated to the onsite wood-fired “Sea Side Sauna”. We’re not sure if there’s a better way to recharge your batteries.
