    We are looking at a CORNER gas fireplace for our cottage -- Our daughter with young children wants an insert for safety reasons. Our son from Alaska wants a free-standing gas fireplace. Here's my question: is there an insert that most resembles a free-standing stove in design? Baby gates is not an option. Propane fuel, about 30,000 BTU's. Thanks.

    If you want a corner unit, there are a number of manufacturers that make them...Regency & Heat & Glo come to mind.
    If your daughter wants in INSERT, she needs to have a FIRE PLACE to INSERT it into. There are MANY manufacturers that make them.
    If your son wants the wood stove look, it will have to be a STOVE not a FIRE PLACE. Again, there are many manufacturers.

    All three of you can get units in the 30K BTU range that burn LP. I suggest you go to your local hearth shop & look at what they have.

    If baby gates are NOT an option, you probably shouldn't get one. Each style will get VERY hot & are not safe for young children to play near.

    My language was confused. She wants a corner unit. Thanks for your help. I am guessing the clearance issues are pretty much the same for all. I am going to a hearth shop today to check them out. If you have any thoughts on clearance that would be helpful. Thanks!

    The nice thing about using a child gate is that it is portable
    & can be removed when the children are not around...
    They are usually attached to walls with small brackets that are
    hardly noticeable when the gate is taken down stowed away...

    We would have them up all the time with all the kids around -- but which do you use?
