If you’re looking for a cozy Winter getaway, the stunning fireplaces in these Green Mountain rentals are positively lit. When the snow is falling and the wind is howling, there's nothing like cuddling up in front of a roaring fire to help keep yourself toasty warm and relaxed. But whether you’re living it up solo with a book and a podcast, hosting a girl's weekend extravaganza, or throwing a decidedly epic family game night, there’s no question that a crackling fire will turn the cozy dial up to eleven. 

With mammoth three-story field-stone stunners, contemporary concrete stylish masterpieces, and rustic log cabin classics, we’ve hunted down some of the most impressive fireplaces in Vermont to spend the evening in front of.

Baby Barn, Architect Owner Great Room Fireplace

The dramatic 20’ cathedral ceiling great room is only made more visually stunning by the massive stone fireplace. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, if you’re lucky enough to be staying here on a powder day, you’re in for a treat. With three bedrooms and three full baths, you’ll have plenty of room for friends and family. Surrounded by ski mountains, including just five minutes away from local-favorite Magic Mountain, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy and happy. Be sure to visit nearby Honey Pie for some of the best burgers and sandwiches in Southern Vermont.

What guests are saying: “The home, with its picturesque views, peaceful surroundings, and warm rustic charm does not disappoint! We walked into the home and were immediately excited for our stay.

Beautiful Lakeview Log Cabin on 60 Acres

Peru, VT

It’s not easy to make a moose look tiny, but this massive fireplace does the job. An incredible luxe-meets-rustic log cabin on 60 acres is an ideal spot for a group getaway. Situated less than half an hour from four ski resorts (the closest being five minutes down the road), this stunning home is the perfect home base for your ski holiday. The 9 bedrooms (including bunkrooms) can accommodate up to 26 people, and the heated pool, hot tub, fire pit, and game room will provide enough space to keep everyone occupied. But I mean, come on…that fireplace!

What guests are saying: “This was our third stay at this property and we had another fantastic time! It is an ideal getaway for our multi-generational family. We skied (Stratton, Okemo and Bromley), walked the trails and warmed up by the fire and in the hot tub. The cabin-like atmosphere and décor really let you know that you are away and relaxing.”

Timber Frame Farm and Silo Interior Fireplace

Custom Timber Frame Barn & Silo

This home has not one, but two drop-dead gorgeous fireplaces, one inside and the other out. The living room showstopper, accented by custom timber framing and plush leather couches, is the epitome of coziness. And the rest of the property is no slouch either. A secluded 265-acre private estate, there is more than enough room to explore and spread out, and the one-of-a-kind silo housing 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms will leave you the envy of all your vacation-taking friends.

What guests are saying: “What a dreamy location for a family gathering of the generations. This breathtaking structure comfortably housed 14 of us, with a couple of couches to spare! The grand dining area, made fires both inside and out, watching the stars and playing games in the evenings. My grandkids loved the peddle boat on the pond and the magical Forest of the Witches Hat Treehouse. We even got to enjoy a remarkable storm from the great window that we won’t soon forget. Memories were made and will be treasured.”

Beautiful lodge with furnished deck and views - near skiing Living Room

Beautiful Lodge with Views

Warren, VT

Sleeps 10 | $425/night

The fireplace in this architect-designed ski lodge might only be eclipsed by the views from the windows that surround it. From the mountainside eight-acre perch, you’ll get the feeling of being in a treetop mansion with valley and forest views from all angles. Wonderfully secluded, yet close to all the skiing the Mad River Valley offers, this five bedroom, four-bathroom lodge is ideal for multiple families and groups. A trip (or five) to The Warren Store is an absolute must during your stay - the deli is next-level. 

What guests are saying: “This is a uniquely custom home that is both quirky and whimsical while also being cozy and warm. Wood abounds with many different lighting options and seating and sleeping for ten but bathrooms for less. Only one en suite bathroom (with a steam shower and big Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom.) Lovely views nestled in the woods with a very short trip to Sugarbush. Great visit!”

The gorgeous, centrally-located fireplace ties together the kitchen, living, and dining rooms seamlessly, so no matter what room you’re in, you’ll always feel part of the party. Five bedrooms, a game room, sauna, heated pool, hot tub, and wine room - the amenities are too many to list, but suffice it to say, you’ll be living well when you visit.

What guests are saying: “The Stowe Glass House was lovely! The kitchen was well stocked, the instructions were very clear and the stay was great! We loved gathering by the wood fireplace after a day of skiing. The beds were very comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!”

Brand New Luxury Retreat with Hot Tub and amazing views Fireplace

Luxury Retreat with Hot Tub and Amazing Views

Warren, VT

Sleeps 10 | $1200/night

This mid-century modern masterpiece has been recently renovated with complete attention to detail. Enjoy the ease of starting the gorgeous gas fireplace then kick back and relax while taking in the views from the lofted fireplace and decks. A true chef’s kitchen and four bedrooms (check out that bunkroom!) make this an ideal spot for a family trip, and with Sugarbush Resort just down the road, you’ll be coming back every year.

What guests are saying: “This property hits it out of the park. The owner is fantastic and easy to deal with, the house is ideally located for skiing and the house itself is the perfect modern ski house. All details from the boot-drying rack and spacious mud room, hot tub, overall layout (easy for adults and kids to share), kitchen design and appliances (Breville and equivalent throughout), beautiful bathrooms (even the kids mentioned how nice the towels were), huge gas fireplace, sensational views, welcome basket filled with local treats, and stocked drink fridges (not a typo - two drinks fridges) are perfectly executed. By far and away the best rental we've had at Sugarbush. Thank you!!”
