The Chumley Homeplace
The Chumley Homeplace received it’s name as it was the home of the realist painter John Chumley and his family from 1963 to 1995. The heart of the Chumley Homeplace is a vintage two- story walnut log house moved to the property by the Chumley family in 1963. The exposed-log keeping room, with its huge stone fireplace and deep chairs, is the ultimate cozy retreat. The center coffee table displays artifacts found during the restoration of Vaucluse. The Stone Terrace in the large common sunroom has walls of windows looking out over the three-season perennial border and into the woods where birds and wildlife abound. The screened porch and its rockers overlook Vaucluse Spring — the perfect venue for rockin’ and talkin’. The Chumley Homeplace provides the perfect combination of spacious common rooms to socialize along with four private guest rooms, two on the top floor (The Chumley and Hite Suites) and two in the wing (the Zane and Stephens Rooms).
