About US

Over 40 years ago , Dean’s Stove & Spa was established by Dean Michanczyk in Plantsville, Connecticut. Dean started with 100 sq ft and set out to offer his customers the most durable and energy efficient fireplaces on the market. Visitors to Dean’s appreciated the expertise, time spent with knowledgeable staff,  and the ability to see numerous products ‘in action.’ Years later Dean purchased the old Five Star factory and turned the old historic building into what is now the House Of Fire, the largest hearth showroom on the east coast. In 2015, Dean’s Stove & Spa was named the 2015 Hearth Retailer of the Year from Hearth & Home Magazine. Now, with over 50,000 sq ft, we have remained steadfast in offering our customers the highest quality merchandise, a fully knowledgeable staff that will spend the time you need to choose the perfect product for your home, in addition to stellar installation and service.

In New England, you are hard pressed to find folks that don’t adore the outdoors, especially in warmer months. Being a typical New Englander himself, Dean set forth to expand his inventory to include new lines of quality outdoor products – seeking longevity, quality and style. With a love for grilling, campfires, and relaxation, Dean’s Stove & Spa now brings you a full line of the best, durable and stylish spas built in America, specialty grills, smokers, pizza ovens, outdoor fire tables imported direct from Italy, and patio furniture. Our building encompasses several product showrooms and warehouses. Not only can you find us in Plantsville, CT, but now we also have a second location in the Pine Meadows section of New Hartford, CT

Quality box stores cannot match

Dean’s offers only the best products from around the world. He will personally visit each manufacturer and observe how the products are built from start to finish. None of the products Dean’s offers are made in China or imported from China. He has a strong belief of selling only the best quality built products. Anything you buy at Dean’s is installed by trained and certified technicians who have extensive training on each product. Dean’s also offers year round service to help maintain your hearth or spa product; big box stores can offer cheap prices but not quality product or service.

We have an entire team dedicated to improving our customers experience from the moment you walk in the door to checkout. Our sales team is highly trained and educated offering you the best answers and advice to your questions or concerns. Our design team can show you what any of our products will look like in your home or backyard. We are in the process of preparing to launch our highly anticipated, all new online store along with updated virtual tours of our showrooms, YouTube tutorials and much, much more. Stay Tuned!
