There are so many things to do in southwest Wisconsin and the driftless area. Enjoy Frank Lloyd Wright destinations like House on the Rock and Taliesin, along with the outdoor American Players Theater and great golf at The House on the Rock Golf Resort in Spring Green (only 15 minutes away).

The house also includes a 26x26 great room addition that’s perfect for any gathering or activity with a larger group! We installed Wi-Fi at the house in October 2014.

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Eric and Amy Lord grew up in southwest Wisconsin, just miles from this property. Eric is a graduate of Ithaca High School, while Amy attended and graduated from Richland Center High School. Like many young adults, they couldn't wait to 'get out of town' after graduation and head to the big city. Well, they headed to the big cities of La Crosse and Madison and currently live in the small community of Black Earth. As they have gotten older, they realize how lucky they are to have the rural beauty of southwest Wisconsin at their fingertips and the big city conveniences of Madison. Eric is a personal training at Core Health and Fitness specializing in corrective movement and injury prevention. He was voted the 'Madison's Best' silver winner personal trainer in 2013 by Madison Magazine. Amy is the Senior Events Planner at Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation (WECC), a non-profit working to increase awareness and implementation of energy efficiency throughout the midwest. Eric and Amy love the outdoors! You will find them hiking and snowshoeing (depending on the season), kayaking and gardening. They enjoy volunteering with the Ice Age Trail and United Way. The long term goal for Akey Valley is to invite guests to not only enjoy country living, but also enjoy planned activities for guests to be active and sustainable.

Why Lone Rock:
A short history lesson: The Akey Valley home was built is 1879 by Lemuel Akey. He brought is young family to the area from Ohio. The Akey family lived and prospered in Richland County for many years and moved to what is now Richland Center in 1890. The house and acreage was purchases by the Pauls family from Lemuel Akey and remained in their family until 2013. The 130+ year old farm house has character around ever corner. There was an addition in 1985 and a kitchen remodel in 2011, and but the true guts of the home remained true to character. As soon as you enter the home, you are in awe of the grander and majestic features of yesteryear. It is a beautiful property and we hope others will enjoy and appreciate the personality it still has today.
