About Eric and Amy Lord
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 has been voted the 'Madison's Best' winner personal trainer by Madison Magazine. Amy is the Outreach and Education Manager at the Ice Age Trail Alliance in Cross Plains, WI engaging all audiences to hike and enjoy the Ice Age National Scenic Trail that spans over 1,000 miles throughout Wisconsin. 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.
Eric and Amy Lord purchased this Farmhouse in 2013
Why Eric and Amy Lord chose 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.

We enjoyed our time at Akey Valley. The house was Nicely decorated with lovely old furnishings, but modern conveniences. With 10 of us staying there it was nice to Cook our meals there and have a large dining room to eat in. Love the location. So quite, so peaceful and short drive to different areas.
Amy and Eric's property was very clean and well appointed with just about anything you could need. We especially enjoyed sitting on the front porch swing in the evening watching the sun set.
We loved the house- perfect for our large group!
Wonderful family time!
Great location for those looking for peace for a large family.
