With the weather getting cooler, it's hard not to think cozy thoughts: hot cocoa, wooly sweaters and keeping warm by the fireplace ... that is, if you had a fireplace.

Now you can! We've rounded up our favorite indoor fireplaces. They run on bio-ethanol fuel (which can be found at your local hardware store and gives off no smoke, soot, or ash.) No chimney, gas or electrical hookup required.
