Searching for Saunas… homes for sale with saunas

sauna winter1

When I read in this Sunday’s Star Tribune that “Minnesota has become the epicenter of a sauna revival” it resonated with me. My sister-in-law is Finnish, and a sauna has always been a part of their lives… at their lake home, but they also built saunas at their city homes. A couple I am working with who just came to an agreement on a home overlooking a suburban lake said they plan to add a sauna.

There are many places were you can rent saunas, the Start Tribune article above included a list… and many hotels have saunas. Many condos and townhouse associations also have saunas… and you can buy free standing home saunas to put in your house.

But how many homes currently listed for sale have saunas?

Not surprisingly, 22 were lakefront properties but some were in the city.

Of the 61 properties listed for sale with a sauna, the least expensive was a one-bedroom condo in St. Paul for $88,500… the most expensive was a 35-acre resort for $6,500,000. Have fun checking them out.

Want to buy your own home with a sauna? Let me know… I will be happy to set up a sauna search for you!
