Cozying Up to the Fire Last Updated: July 2023
A good fireplace can be a crucial decider when you make your overnight plans in Connecticut. Whether you’re going out for dinner or looking for a cozy overnight room, a fire can really add to the allure.
Dining by Firelight
It’s nice to find a bar or taproom that features an open fire. Try these on for size:
A Fireplace in Your Room
That’s a special winter treat in Connecticut, and you can find it in good hotels and inns all around the state. Some places don’t have fireplaces in every guest room, so be sure to mention it when you make your reservation.
Inn at Stonington
At the Inn at Stonington, the gas fire adds to the pleasure of a comfortable room, maybe with a water view, and proximity to the many pleasures of Stonington Borough, right outside the front door.
A haven of refuge set along the Silvermine River in Norwalk, CT. Once very popular as a village meeting place, artist outpost and stagecoach stop GrayBarns on the Silvermine River is a hidden gem.

Blackberry River Inn
If you’re headed to Norfolk (“The Icebox of Connecticut”) for, let’s say, a concert at Infinity Hall, you may be very grateful to have a wood-burning fireplace in your room. You can find them at the Blackberry River Inn, right in town.
