It's hard to complain about January's wintry arrival, when most of December is 60+ degrees, with a few days in the 70's thrown in for good measure!

But among our many attractions, are some pretty special fireplaces that make snowy days and nights cozy, comfortable and romantic.  From Philly to the Brandywine, here are a few inns, hotels and restaurants that will chase away the winter blues.
