I would definitely consider a good sauna a gift from the heavens. I absolutely hate the cold. I can only imagine the bone chilling temperatures of this is Georgian Bay island, which can plummet to -30° Celsius, would make you appreciate a sauna even more. Creating a sauna to make your life more bearable is one thing. Creating an amazingly beautiful and spacious work of art… That is a work of genius. By utilizing cutting-edge software and fabrication technologies, this masterpiece was created. 3D digital modeling allowed this Georgian Bay grotto to be placed on a cliff side overlooking Georgian Bay with a large window to open your view to breathtaking sunsets. This creation offers sophisticated style that creates an out of this world sanctuary for visitors. And quite frankly, makes me wish I had a truck full of money to replicate the same type of Georgian Bay grotto in my area.
