Step Back to the Glamour Era at Ten Chimneys. Wisconsin Summer Estate of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

Indulge Yourself for an Afternoon at Ten Chimneys. It’s 1938 in Genesee Depot, WI. and You’re Visiting Legendary Stage Actors Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

You’re the afternoon guest of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne at Ten Chimneys, the couple’s summer retreat far away from the clatter of Broadway.

As your taxi rolls up the rural driveway, you behold the most beautiful estate you’ve ever seen outside the Hamptons. Lynn’s flower gardens are everywhere. Driving past the white stone fence to the white 18-room main house, you catch a glimpse of an adorable red country cottage perfectly accented with red and white striped awnings. And you’ll notice the Swedish-style log cabin studio out near the creamery, just past the barn, stables and, of course, Alfred’s greenhouse and vegetable gardens.
