Rockies to the Catskills and Appalachians, they are as bold and breathtaking as the mountains
that surround them!
Encased in equally dramatic log structures, the stone hearth designs that follow are a fitting focal point and tribute to the rooms they adorn. Rugged and rustic, they soar to new heights!

The Western mountain hearths pic-
tured here are loaded with nostalgic charm . . . and practically beg us to come closer. You can almost smell
the scent of a wood burning fire and hear the pop of crackling embers!
Warm and inviting, the large but cozy corner hearth at left anchors a soar-
ing great room. Handcrafted trusswork overhead lends contrast and drama. To further enhance this fireplace de-
sign and -- at the same time -- visually "scale it down," the firebox facing is deeply recessed within its massive stone surround.
The log home fireplace that follows features a cut stone surround and wood mantel shelf partially clad with metal.

Heading East . . . . .
The monumental stone hearths pictured below are part of an extraordinary rustic retreat in the Catskill Mountains
of Upstate New York. Designed by the firm of Holmes, King, Kallquist & Associates, the home is
constructed of rugged stones and enormous standing-dead Engelmann spruce
ered in Western North America from Canada to New Mexico.
Inside, the soaring great room features a massive -- albeit cozy -- "walk-
in" fireplace framed by 18 inch logs (below right). An expansive outdoor deck at the rear of the home plays host to another great stone hearth (below left).
And last, but far from least, is the spectacular hunting lodge with rustic stone hearths pictured at right and below. Located in South Carolina, it was built by Hearthstone Log Homes, in collaboration with skilled local artisans.
