US Fireplaces to Cozy up to This Winter

With the fresh chill of late fall in our bones and summer long behind us, we’re seeking out all the cozy fireplaces where you can kick back and get comfortable. Places where you can warm your toes just after a hillside walk, spots that do dinner and a fireside show, antique reading chairs set beside fireplaces, firepits with city views, and many more warmth-providing seats where you’ll want to stay a while. From the glamorous hotels of Aspen to some of Southern California’s best eateries to New York getaways, we’ve got a spot that’s just hot enough to be what you’re looking for. Planning a gathering and want a hearth to be part of the scene? We’ve got that covered too.
