Yesterday was a cold, damp day here in the northeast., and tomorrow looks like more of the same. This is the type weather that makes you want to do anything you can to warm up, which prompted my wife Elana to say, “This is when you want… no, you need a hot tub.”
Of course, the problem is that the place where we would like to put it is nowhere near an electrical outlet. Luckily there is a solution.

The DutchTub, which we first heard about year ago, is a self-contained hot tub which can be placed in even the most remote locations. Needing neither electricity nor proper plumbing, it only needs to be filled with water which is then heated in the fire pit which is connected to the tub. The DutchTub can be set up on a flatbed trailer, next to a creek, on a boat, in the middle of a snowy field, in the middle of a ranch pasture, or even on your back patio.

It’s light, so it can be easily moved … with or without a trailer.

The Dutchtub, developed in 2002 by Floris Schoonderbeek in The Netherlands, is a natural wood-fired soak tub with a modern flair in simple and functional design.

DutchTubs can be purchased from Hammacher Schlemmer for $6,000; where you might want to put yours is limited only by your imagination.
