Welcome to the second “Ski Lodge | Get the Look” post for this holiday season, on how to create a cozy ski lodge fireplace in your home.

Ski Lodge Fireplace

We start first with the actual fireplace.

Pellet Stove

Which in our case is a pellet stove insert, the Enviro M55 Multi-Fuel Stove at our home in the mountains of Vermont.

We enjoy having a pellet stove, in Vermont and we run it 24/7 over the winter months. It is our primary source of heat for our entire home.

Most homes in Vermont have either a pellet stove or a wood-burning stove. And as much as I enjoy a wood fire, I don’t enjoy stacking the wood for the amount one needs for a primary heat source.

We have neighbors who make a contest out of their wood-stacking skills!

Their woodpiles are fabulous. Seriously!

Wood Pellets

We burn approximately 3 pallets of wood pellet bags a winter, costing us under $1,000 in total. And one bag of wood pellets burns for about 24 hours.

So, a bag a day!

We will order our 3 pallets of pellets from a local provider, The Stove Depot to be delivered in the fall and we store them inside our garage.

This year we are burning the Ambiance Wood Pellets and we are really enjoying how clean they are burning.

Ski Lodge Fireplace Mantel

Our TV is mounted over our mantel, looking onto a large sectional and open kitchen. It’s so perfect for entertaining, watching sports, movies, etc…

Speaking of, have you seen the HBO documentary Dear Rider?

It’s a revealing documentary on how Jake Burton Carpenter took a favorite childhood pastime and developed it into an international cultural phenomenon out of a barn in Vermont called snowboarding.

We even knew a few people and places in the movie. So good!

We had our neighbors over last night and watched it all here in front of our cozy ski lodge fireplace.

Another documentary you may also enjoy is Crash Reel, the amazing rise and life-changing fall of snowboarder Kevin Pearce of Vermont too.

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

Adding a small or even a large evergreen tree with simple white lights to a room adds that winter or Christmas charm to a room.

I’ve decided this is going to be our only Christmas tree this year with just simple white lights, a blue bow, in a simple basket.

This year we are going to be hitting the slopes on Christmas day so keeping it very simple for the holidays is important to me.

I feel less cluttered and more in the spirit.

Most of our Christmas shopping is done too with a visit to one of our favorite places, Stonewall Kitchen.

Check out some of my favorite Stonewall Kitchen Gift Baskets here.

Cozy Winter Neutral Built-Ins

Check out these cozy winter neutral built-ins too that surround our living room and ski lodge fireplace.

All decorated for winter with thrifted and flea market finds from my time with “Thrifting with the Gals.”

Bernese Mountain Dog

And what’s cozier and more inviting in front of a ski lodge fireplace than a Bernese Mountain Dog?

Am I right?

And Candles, always candles…

My favorite is these soy Antique Candle Co candles. Today, I’m burning their Tree Farm candle.

It smells like a beautiful pine Christmas tree!
