Taking the Plunge: Design-Forward, Wood-Fired Soaking Tubs from Goodland

March 29, 2022

Gone are the days of clunky, unsightly hot tubs on the back deck. Recently we’ve been admiring Goodland, makers of what is arguably the most sophisticated hot tub out there.

More soaking tub than whirlpool, the baths are made in Canada from 100 percent recyclable materials (Western red cedar, oak, marine-grade aluminum, and brass details) with wood-slatted recliners built in. The whole thing is also wood fired, not electric. Why? “Wood fired bathing incites the most elemental and authentic outdoor bathing experience,” the company says. Each bath heats in about 90 minutes using “an armful of fallen limbs or brush for the fire.”

What other hot tub company follows the tenets of considered design, cultivating small rituals of quiet and escape, and engaging with nature?

Join us for a look at Goodland.

Goodland&#8\2\17;s Wood-Fired Hot Tub (\$5,795) is designed to last, made from hardy, recyclable materials, and can be used with fresh or salt water.

One of the accessories available: a Brass Hand Shower designed by Thom Fougere Studio, made from raw brass with hand-drilled holes. &#8\2\20;Use this object as a pre-soak rinse ritual, or to allow a cold stream of water to fall over your head while bathing in steamy water,&#8\2\2\1; Goodland says.

According to Goodland, “If you’ve ever soaked in water heated only by wood, you’ll know it’s much richer than just the bathing: it’s the splitting and stacking of firewood, the methodical stirring and preparation of the water, the sound of the crackling fire, the anticipation of the heat. These moments of simple pleasure remind us that when life moves half as fast, we notice twice as much.”

The tubs can seat a solo bather or a family of four.
