With cooler weather comes the desire to snuggle up indoors with a crackling fireplace, a hot drink and good company. But don’t think traveling to a colder destination means sacrificing time by a fireplace. These five hotels across the world boast stunning fireplaces that are not only beautiful but also warm and inviting, making for the perfect winter getaway for those craving a cozy night in.

Old Edwards Inn & Spa, Highlands, North Carolina

Old Edwards Inn & Spa sits in the mountainous Highlands, located on the southwestern plateau of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Originally a boarding house all the way back in 1878, the inn and spa today now spans several hillside blocks featuring heated pools, bars, restaurants, Jacuzzis and, of course, fireplaces at every corner. Throughout the property, guests are transported to 19th-century Europe, elevated by in-room fireplaces. Even the public spaces have fireplaces, including the outdoor lounge area and restaurants like Madison’s Restaurant and Wine Garden.

Against a backdrop of red-rock towers and juniper and ponderosa pine, mii amo in Boynton Canyon embraces the great outdoors. Guests are immersed in terra-cotta, cream, wood and stone details and designs, placing nature at the center of the experience. And for those colder nights, guests can enjoy in-room fireplaces and private patios to enjoy the quieter moments.

The Chanler at Cliff Walk, Newport, Rhode Island

Often called America’s most romantic hotel, The Chanler at Cliff Walk looks like a property straight out of HBO’s The Gilded Age. The Chanler sits along Newport’s famous Cliff Walk, boasting views of the Atlantic across 20 unique accommodations, each designed according to a specific theme or historical period. The best part? Rooms come with their own fireplace. And when you’re away from your room and elsewhere in the hotel, you’ll still be able to enjoy the crackling of a good fire with fireplaces in the lobby, lounge, café and even outdoor area. The Chanler even features a dedicated hot chocolate bar in winter to complement some outdoor time by the fire.
