Yankee Fireplace started with one guy in a blue uniform in an 800-square foot storefront. Our founder, Gene Harris, was that guy.

Gene believed in doing the right thing, in life AND in business. He believed that success in life came from being honest and open with yourself and others. He built Yankee Fireplace with those core values guiding him through the good days – and the bad ones. In our 40+ years in business, Yankee Fireplace has grown to become one of the premier hearth, grill, and patio retailers in New England.  We have over 10,000 square feet of retail showroom in our Middleton Massachusetts  location with beautiful examples of what we can do at your home.

We lost Gene in 2014, but his values still guide this family owned business. We are authorized dealers and service providers of the best quality hearth, grill, and patio products available including Heat & Glo, Vermont Castings, Jotul, Town & Country, Ortal, Heatilator, Dimplex, Quadra-Fire, R.H. Peterson, Valor, Weber, Fire Magic, Lynx, Saber, Lloyd Flanders, Jensen, Seaside Casual, Malibu, Kettler, Winward Design Group, Kingsley Bate, Ebel, Treasure Garden, and Outdoor Great Room. We service everything we sell – and with over 40 years of experience, you can count on us.

We invite you to meet our team – and let us help you design the indoor or outdoor living experience you desire.
