About the property

Akey Valley is a vacation rental home located in scenic Richland County in southwest Wisconsin. The 130+ year old farmhouse has over 4,000 square feet to enjoy. The home is fully furnished and sleeps 10 comfortably with five bedrooms (four upstairs and one on the main level): two queen beds, two full beds and two twin beds and plenty of space available for air mattresses. Move in and make yourself at home for the week or weekend.

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).

Enjoy fishing? Richland County alone has over 270 miles of class I and class II trout stream. Along with the Wisconsin River and nearby fisheries, this area is the ultimate getaway. Within a 20 minutes drive, enjoy the Wisconsin River, Willow Creek, Bear Creek, Whitemound Lake, Ash Creek, Melancthon Creek and Mill Creek. If you want to drive a little farther, you can explore Blue River, Fennimore Fork, Black Earth Creek, West Fork of the Kickapoo River, Billings Creek and Devils Lake and State Park.

If golf is more your style, you can golf a different course every day of your stay with multiple courses all within a short drive. Visit The House on the Rock Golf Resort in Spring Green (15 minutes), The Baraboo Country Club, Baraboo (55 minutes), The Reedsburg Country Club, Reedsburg (40 minutes), Viroqua Hills Golf Course, Viroqua (45 minutes) and the West Brook Hills Golf Course in Plain (25 minutes).

The Akey Valley farmhouse is over 130+ years old. We offer great accommodations but please know it is NOT new construction. The home includes living room, dining room, sitting room, two bathrooms (both on the main level - there is not a bathroom upstairs) and fully equipped recently remodeled kitchen with wall oven, cook top, oversized refrigerator with French doors, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and other small appliances like waffle maker, toaster and a tabletop George Forman grill. All cooking utensils, silverware and dishware are included and guests may bring in and prepare their own food. Bed linens and towels are provided. 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. It has worked great for guests but know it's not super fast. Some things we don't have: cable or dish network (we do have a TV). We hope our guests enjoy the beautiful scenery of the settings and have a time to set back, relax and get away.

Area attractions within a half hour’s drive include: American Players Theater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesen, the Spring Green Art Fair, The House on the Rock Golf Course, Tower Hill State Park, the lower Wisconsin River, the Morel (mushroom) Festival in Muscoda, the Fall Art Tour, Oakwood Fruit Farm, and the Mid-Continent Railway Museum. Amish shopping and Wiggy Winery is north of Richland Center. Our back country roads are perfect for biking, pedal or motorcycle!

Area attractions about an hour away include: the House on the Rock, Governor Dodge State Park in Dodgeville, the Circus Museum, Devil's Lake State Park, the International Crane Foundation in the Baraboo area, the Wisconsin Dells, Mt Horeb, Wollersheim Winery, Cave of the Mounds. Madison is 60 minutes east, Viroqua is a short hour northwest and La Crosse is 90 minutes northwest.

Enjoy country living; take in the beauty of the area and be amazed at the peace and quiet of the country.

Please note: 3 night minimum is required for Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

Travel time (ish): Madison 60 minutes, La Crosse 90 minutes, Chicago 3 hours and 30 minutes, Twin Cities 4 hours, Rochester, MN 3 hours and Wisconsin Dells 60 minutes.
