New England Hotels with Fireplaces

  • Hotels

This Relais & Châteaux property on Cape Cod is a beachside haven. Nine of the 18 rooms here offer personal fireplaces, including one suite, two premier fireplace category rooms and six standard fireplace rooms (there’s even one with a double-sided fireplace that opens to a soaking tub for optimal R&R). The rooms follow a stunning contemporary format, with clean, minimal lines that encourage you to declutter your mind on a weekend away. In case you muster up the energy to leave your intimate, cozy quarters, the property also has fireplaces in the dining room, wine bar, common sitting area and an outside fire pit.

Nothing embodies Kennebunkport charm more than an oceanfront Victorian mansion, and at Cape Arundel that’s exactly what you can expect. With rooms perched above the famed Ocean Avenue, guests can admire pronounced ocean views from their windows—an enchanting juxtaposition next to the roaring fireplace. The rooms are warmly decorated in a homey style you’d expect from an Inn-inspired property, however, with a modern flair you might not normally get at this historic seaside destination. There are also a mix of fireplaces throughout the public space, in case you want to wander outside your personal accommodations.

Though you’ll likely catch a whiff of smoke from another guest’s chimney, with the accommodations spread over 113 acres, Winivan Farm ensures a rustic privacy, where you’ll feel as if you’re miles away from anyone else.

Located at the base of Okemo, one of Vermont’s mainstay ski mountains, Jackson Gore Inn immediately transports guests into a world of coziness with their lobby’s stone fireplace. The resort knows that nothing warms you up faster than a roaring fire following an outdoor outing filled with ice skating, snow tubing or skiing. That’s why their multi-bedroom suites—complete with full kitchens—include sitting rooms centered around fireplaces or, in some cases, a fireplace featured in the bedroom. If the latter is something you desire, be sure to request this upon booking.

In unequivocal bed-and-breakfast fashion, The Rabbit Hill Inn combines the best of homey accommodations with outstanding culinary offerings (Four Diamond inspired farm-to-table nonetheless).
