Part of the charm of old houses is the odd sorts of devices some of them come equipped with -- servants' bells in the kitchen, a dumbwaiter, a skylight with a vent on a string. It's always nice to be able to restore a bit of the past, even if it's just for decoration.However, not all such devices can or should be restored -- as a reader in Catonsville may attest."We have a 70-year-old house with an old gas fireplace," she writes. "Unfortunately, there is no chimney or vent to the outside.

Destinations Years ago when I interviewed Olympian equestrian Joe Fargis who said he had a horse ranch in Middleburg, Va. Without looking it up on the map, I assumed it was a few hours away. A few weeks ago, I drove there and found out it's only a 45-minute drive; but once I got there, I did feel like I was hours away from Beltway and city traffic, hectic work schedules and deadlines. My destination was the 340-acre Salamander Resort and Spa, which opened August 2013 in Middleburg and is definitely designed for relaxation.

Is it better to have a gas fireplace or a traditional wood-burning fireplace? I am interested in gas fireplaces, possibly ventless, to turn my fuel dollars into heat instead of sending them up the chimney. First of all, will the fireplace be purely decorative, or will it function as a heating source for your home? If it's only intended to be decorative, the decision is easier. But let me tell you a story that might influence your choice. Just after I moved into my current home, we had an unusual midfall snowstorm.

" There was an initial visit, then a week passed.
