It's officially fall, and that means leaf peeping, sweater weather, and fireplace season is well on its way. A fireplace—even a decorative one—ups the cozy factor of a home, so we searched real rental listings in five (chilly) cities to see what was available. Here's what we found.
Clinton Hill, Brooklyn—$2370
A one bedroom in Brooklyn comes with exposed brick and a non-working fireplace, so add some pillar candles or twinkle lights for that firelight glow. Bonus: the kitchen and bathroom are newly renovated.
Back Bay, Boston—$2100
This Beacon Street studio is basically like living in a castle (but smaller). The Victorian fireplace isn't the only cozy feature in this place: the beams, paneling, and what appears to be German text all add to the ambiance.
Lincoln Park, Chicago—$1550
This one bedroom's brick corner fireplace is wood burning, and comes with a nook underneath to stash some logs. It also has a private balcony for the warmer months.
North Loop, Minneapolis—$1650
This Twin Cities loft features a gas fireplace to warm up the concrete floors and exposed beams. It also comes with garage parking.
Nothing says cozy cabin vibes like wood paneling and brick fireplaces. This one bedroom is both in a wooded area of West Seattle, but close to the beach. Plus, it comes with off-street parking and a washer/dryer.
