This year, the popular ABC series The Bachelor ran a four-episode spin-off of the show that ran in conjunction with the Winter Olympics. “The Bachelor Winter Games” is an international couple competition that had the perfect setting: a snowy Vermont ski resort called the Hermitage Club. The Hermitage Club is a luxurious 1,400-acre community of private residences located in the Green Mountains. Here, the contestants were able to go hot-tubbing, snow tubing, and, of course, skiing.

“‘The Bachelor Winter Games’ will unite the all-star cast at the Hermitage Club winter resort, where they will go head-to-head in winter-themed athletic challenges, including the toughest sport of all – love.”

Amongst the gorgeous snow drifted hills sits the main clubhouse of the Hermitage Club where the infamous Rose Ceremony of “The Bachelor Winter Games” took place. All the contestants stood anxiously in front of the largest wood burning fireplace in Vermont. This impressive, four-sided, gorgeous fireplace was the settings’ focal point for the finale of the spin-off.

This amazing fireplace is the perfect centerpiece to mirror this over-the-top ski resort. With massive doors on all sides that stand over 5’ tall and 5’ wide, this fireplace was sure to leave an impression on even the most discerning couples. The crackling from 10’ logs burning inside set the perfect romantic atmosphere for the Rose Ceremony. And, although many other spaces that were used to film the hit show were redecorated to the point of being nearly unrecognizable, the main lodge where the fireplace is featured remained essentially untouched. Save for a few Winter-Olympic-style lighting features.

Sit at the bar where the stars from The Winter Games drank the Hermitage’s signature cocktails. Ski the immaculate snow slopes of the Vermont mountains.
