When the weather starts to cool down, the right amenities can turn a good time into a memorable one. Here are six essentials for a cozy fall season in your second home.

Outdoor hot tub

Fall is the best season for hot tubs — they’re perfect for soaking in warm bubbles and soaking up majestic views. The covered deck at Majestic will be your haven for relaxation after a day enjoying the magic of Palisades Tahoe resort.A serene covered deck of an Olympic Valley second home with a hot tub and comfortable seating surrounded by wooded forests.

Heated lounge

When the evening air becomes crisp, a fire pit lets you savor the outdoors without having to retreat inside. An outdoor heated lounge like the one at Sunset Bay makes it easy to host s’mores parties, casual get-togethers and romantic date nights.Views of San Diego water at sunset

In-home heater

Fall is movie season at its best. With an in-home theater, you can stay in, curl up and enjoy a good movie and tasty snacks all night long. Jackson Square’s gathering room creates a cozy cinematic experience, with a giant TV screen, modern fireplace and loads of comfy seating. A spacious second home living room with a neutral color scheme, featuring a sectional sofa, accent chairs and a wall-mounted TV.

Chef’s kitchen (and wine!)

Nothing says fall like home-cooked comfort food. A bright, fully equipped kitchen inspires cooks to craft hearty soups, tasty baked goods and piping-hot casseroles — especially if it’s a state-of-the-art, luxury kitchen like the one at this Napa retreat. Plus, you’ll have the fun of grape stomping every fall in this celebrated wine region.An immaculate second home kitchen in Napa featuring sleek cabinetry, granite countertops, and a large island with bar stools for casual dining

Trail access

Fall shouldn’t be enjoyed only within the walls of your home. Experience all the crunching leaves, changing colors and magic of the season by taking breezy walks around your community. At Wood Creek, the best autumn hikes of the Lake Tahoe area start right outside your door.outdoor deck of an Incline Village second home
