Description
The Space

In 2013, I purchased this property. I was learning to golf and am an admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural style. When I learned this house was the first "model home" built for the resort and was designed by Wright's chief draughtsman, John Howe, I became even more thrilled! The home is unique to The House On the Rock Resort complex. It is independent of the resort but is part of it's former history. I have moved farther north of the SG region but my family and I love the house and want to continue to enjoy it as well as share it with others! The first thing I notice about the property is the gorgeous tall pines surrounding it. Once inside the house, the view outside towards the golf course is spectacular. The outside comes inside through the expanse of windows! The space feels serene, open and light. The screen porch and patio brings one even closer to nature. I love sitting there and listening to the spring peepers--or frogs! So many birds frequent my yard-bluebirds nest in the bird house, grosbeaks at the feeders. In the winter I have deer come right up to my windows. I also have noticed coyotes in the snow frolicking!

Guest Access

All areas of the house are for your use except for the garage. As I do not have a basement, this is for my personal storage.

Interaction with Guests

I am available by phone, e-mail and text before and during your visit.

The Neighborhood

The house as adjacent to The House on the Rock Resort. You will experience the beautiful natural landscape as well as gardens cultivated by the resort. A wall of windows overlooks the beautiful golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. There are ponds and a variety of trees and plantings which bring migrating birds and other wildlife close to the property. Enjoy the birds and wildlife surrounding the home or take a short drive to Tower Hill State park for hiking and to see the Historic Shot Tower. Swimming, fishing and kayaking on the Wisconsin River is 2 miles away. Wander in Spring Green, noted as one of the 20 top small towns by Smithsonian Magazine, exploring its many unique shops, cafes, bookstore and art galleries.

Other Things to Note

Golfers occasionally have balls that get very close to the house so observe some caution when sitting on the patio!

Place's rules
- Families with infants and young children are allowed with the understanding that parents will walk-through the property and move any objects out of reach for little hands. - My home is a perfect place for family reunions and get togethers. I do ask that you please respect the natural peaceful setting and do not have activities which will have excessive noise. - Please note cell phone service is not reliable at the house as it sits in a valley. Reception may be better outside the house or closer to the resort.

About Judith
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
