Jo Anne & Mel live in Perrysville on Pleasant Hill Lake, one mile from Valley View Cottage. It was love at first sight when they first saw Valley View Cottage 20 years ago. Their daughters were young and they would take hikes around their home on Pleasant Hill Lake. One day they walked through the woods and fields and came upon Valley View Cottage. The girls wanted to immediately pack their bags and move there. They simply smiled and imagined how wonderful it would be to own such a place. It is amazing how fast the years go by. They were tempted to buy their dream house but the time was not quite right. Thankfully, Jo Anne's brother Terry loved Valley View Cottage as much as they did and was ready to purchase it. Seven more years went by with them taking care of Valley View Cottage for Terry. His job kept taking him further and further away from Ohio and this fall he asked them if they were ready to buy the property. They said yes and their dream of twenty years came true. They love to share with others the peace and tranquility that this cozy cottage provides.
Jo Anne & Mel purchased this cottage in 2013
Valley View Cottage is situated deep in the beautiful rolling hills of Mohican country. It is private and secluded with wonderful views of the woods, hills, and farmlands of central Ohio. The dogwood blossoms make spring a glorious time and the fall colors are magnificent. Some guests have said that the property has a magical quality to it. It is like stepping outside of our present time into a tranquil natural land of peace and quiet. The cottage is very charming with huge windows affording a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside. Three bedrooms sleep six comfortably, and a spacious great room with a dining room and fully equipped kitchen make your stay comfortable. A small fishing pond and hiking trails complete the property as you revel in the beauty of the Mohican countryside.
We enjoy our morning coffee on the deck or in the living room looking out over the Mohican valley. Most days while at Valley View Cottage, we spend quiet time reading or taking walks through the woods or down by the pond. We also like to venture to the Amish Country to do some shopping or eating at one of the fantastic Amish restaurants. Our favorite place to have dinner out is definitely Malabar Farm Restaurant. Many activities such as Mohican Adventures are just minutes away with a new Aerial Adventure Park course (a jungle gym high in the air for ages 5 and up), canoeing, kayaking, rafting, mini-golfing on three 18 hole top notch golf courses, and go-carting. Another favorite place just a few miles away is the infamous Mowery Cider Mill which has been in the Mowery family since 1901. Golfing is also close by at Pleasant Hill Golf Course. (We offer our guests free golf privileges.) Everyone you meet in this rural area is friendly and helpful.
This property had everything we were looking for in a weekend getaway, breathtaking views, well-groomed hiking trails, and a well-stocked kitchen. The house is very cozy and accommodated our large group comfortably. The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home. We will definitely stay here again.
The home was absolutely wonderful! The owners were very easy to work with met our every need very friendly! Highly recommend! Definetly going to book again! The property was absolutely breathtaking lots of room for outdoor games or just to sit quietly and relax. Awesome place! My family was making plans to go back within an hour of being there. Thank you so much for sharing your home away from home.
This was a great cottage to go to over NYE! Our family relaxed, ate way too much, and played games. The kitchen has everything and the beds were comfortable. The view was beautiful and deal with Jo Anne and Mel was a breeze. Very attentive and helpful. We will definitely be back.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at this beautiful, well maintained house. This is definitely not a cabin in the woods, but a fully appointed, nicely decorated home with an astonishing view of the gorgeous surroundings. It slept 6 adults comfortably, and had all the amenities we could ask for. The owners were gracious and accommodating, and were a pleasure to deal with. The surroundings are well maintained, with nice short hiking paths and other outdoor activities available. Mohican and other attractions were a short drive away, and easy to find. We truly appreciated the owners opening up their lovely home to us, and we would highly recommend it for those who would appreciate such a lovely home. We will definitely keep it on our list of places to stay again in the future!
Stayed at this beautiful home in September. I want to say something different and original from the other reviews but everything has already been said. Gorgeous home sitting on a private sanctuary in a very rural area. Acres of meadows surrounded by woods with well cared for paths to explore. Kids and adults will love the setting. A family of deer live in the woods and show up around 6pm in the front yard. If they don't show up, let Jo anne know I think she will have a talk with them;-) Bring your camera. A photographers paradise. 3 nicely decorated and comfy bedrooms. I slept through the night for the first time in about 10 years while staying at the cottage. A real treat! My son and I spent hours on the deck reading. I sat on the swing and rocked. My son sat on the deck furniture with the pillows provided. My mom, 84 years old, and the rest of us enjoyed the scenery and nature backdrop thru the wall of windows in the great room. Lots of home made quilts to cozy up with. We visited Malabar farm and did a driving tour of the area to include the gorge overlook, the covered bridge, Mount Jeez overlook and Loudonville. Make sure you bring all your groceries as it is a bit of a trip to the store. A lot of outdoor activities nearby in Loudonville and TV works well for vegging out or rainy days. Everything very clean and very well cared for. I understand central air is being added soon which I would need if staying in the middle of summer but not an issue when we were there. Fans in all rooms. We will be returning in October to enjoy the change of seasons. About 1 hour I think to a lot of Amish places. Jo Anne is a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to answer questions and make our visit a great experience. Would highly recommend the property.
The cottage met and exceeded all our expectations. The property is very well taken care of and felt like home. The firewood and smores were a nice unexpected touch that were greatly appreciated. We highly recommend booking this cottage.
