Benefits of a wood-burning fireplace

One of the favorite amenities here at The Inn at Arch Cape are our rustic wood-burning fireplaces, the ideal spot to gather after a day at the beach or a rainy afternoon on the coast.

So why do we love wood-burning fires so much?

According to a 2014 study by the University of Alabama, we’re drawn to the sight, sounds, smells and cozy warmth of fire. And there are physiological benefits of siting in front of a fire. The study found that our blood pressure decreases while relaxing by the fireplace.

So when you visit The Inn, be sure to pack your favorite pair of comfy socks and your favorite beverage. We’ve got plenty of firewood waiting for you here.
