Venue information: Hewing Hotel

A few years ago soon-to-be Hewing Hotel co-owner Tim Dixon showed up in our backyard for a sauna night. We remember it clearly because he brought the firewood — a truckload of it.

We had an epic sauna session at The Firehouse that contributed to his conviction to put a sauna on the rooftop of the hotel and he
asked us to help him bring it to life once it got going.

We’ve been fortunate to partner with the hotel ever since to create a custom offering of sauna and thermaculture sessions designed to utilize the hotel’s unique rooftop stadium-style sauna, which is designed to host groups of 20+ for traditional thermic therapies such as Finnish Vihta Whisking and the guided German sauna steam and aromatherapy sessions known as Aufguss.
