ROMANTIC SECLUDED MOHICAN AREA COTTAGE, 24 ACRES, HIKING TRAILS AND FISHING POND

Loudonville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedroom Two Bathroom Cottage Sleeps Six Comfortably With Beautiful Views

Beautiful cottage situated in a 24-acre park setting. Very secluded home sits on top of a hill overlooking the Mohican area valley. Looking for someplace to get away from it all? There is absolute peace and quiet that you will notice upon your arrival. There are no visible roads, no other visible houses, and the only sound you will hear is the birds chirping or maybe the faint tinkling of a special wind chime in the breeze off the deck. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck or in the living room with floor to ceiling windows. The grounds include plenty of walking trails, woods, fishing pond with a dock, kayak, and picnic table, flowers and wild berries. Enjoy your evening outside around an outdoor fire ring roasting marshmallows or making s'mores or have a BBQ on the gas grill. The home includes all of the amenities that you need to enjoy your vacation.

Home Amenities:

The cottage includes three charming bedrooms, two baths, country style kitchen and a large open living room with plenty of windows to view the valley, sunsets and wildlife. The living room flows into the dining room with a dining room table with seating for six. The kitchen includes all you need to make a simple meal or a very elaborate dinner. There is a small table in the kitchen with four stools for kids or snacks. Outside includes two deck areas with a porch swing and additional seating along with a fire pit and gas BBQ. Near the cottage is a small fishing pond with a dock and a kayak, as well as a picnic table and seating.

Grounds:

Stretch your legs throughout this 24-acre park setting and enjoy plenty of wildlife, flowers, wild berries and quiet spaces. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail on the pier and try your luck with fishing. If you want to take a longer walk/run there are multiple trails leading around the picturesque countryside and Mohican State Park is just minutes away. The home is accessed by a gravel driveway. In snowy weather we suggest that you have 4-wheel drive to navigate the maintained gravel driveway.

Activities:

This home is situated in an area that provides countless ways to spend your days. Enjoy all water sports on the Pleasant Hill Lake that is only minutes away. Canoeing, kayaking, rafting, 3 top-notch 18 hole mini-golf courses, go-carts and a new Aerial Adventure Course ( a jungle gym high in the air for ages 5 and up) are located at Mohican Adventures and Fun Center minutes away in Loudonville. (Visit MohicanAdventures.com for more info!) Malabar Farm and Malabar Farm Restaurant are minutes away. In addition, the infamous Mowery Cider Mill is close by.

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.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just stayed at this wonderful cottage for the week. It is difficult to put into words how pleased we were with everything. Beautiful surroundings & view, extremely clean and well cared for cottage and grounds, everything we needed right there, very comfortable beds and lovely decor throughout... We are grateful for this great respite and plan to return. The TLC of the owners is quite obvious.

ps My 6'2 husband looked pretty cute in the kayak in the pond.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and three small children recently stayed at Valley View Cottage and had a wonderful time! The cottage is beautifully decorated and has a very comfortable feel. The cottage is definitely large enough to accomodate six people. All three beds were extremely comfortable and had beautiful linens. The large living room was very comfy and had an amazing view of the Mohican valley. We enjoyed watching deer in the front yard from the huge living room windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and we were able to make all of our meals there with all of the appliances/tools that were provided. We enjoyed sitting out on both decks and grilling out on the gas grill provided. We took small hikes on the trails around the property and the woods around the property are just beautiful. The cottage is only minutes away from Mohican State Park and we had fun visiting the park and hiking. I definitely want to mention how extremely impressed I was with how clean the cottage is! The owners really do an excellent job in keeping up the property and making sure the guests have everything that is needed to have a wonderful stay. My family and I will definitely stay at the cottage again. We had an amazing time there and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away and enjoy nature while still having a comfy "home" to stay in.

Beyond our expectations !

  • 5 of 5
This is out fourth trip to the area and we try different places. The moment we got there we felt like we were isolated from the world , with modern conviences like WiFi and TV. There was plenty of room for the six of us to spread out and we loved the areas outside. We played tetherball, kayaked, had smores (thanks for the firewood AND sticks for roasting!) Everyone said "I would come back here in a heart beat" . Plus Mel and Jo-anne helped with directions when we got lost , and they kept checking up when we lost reception ! They were so friendly. We will be back, thank you!!!!

Birthday Getaway.

  • 5 of 5
My wife surprised me for a nice getaway for my birthday celebration. The house and grounds proved to be even better than expected and far exceeded our expectations. Photos did not do the property justice. The owners could not have been more helpful in making our stay perfect. We will be back!

A more balanced review

  • 4 of 5
The property is beautiful as described by others. The kids had fun catching bluegill at the pond and riding bikes around the yard. The home is spacious and appears to be freshly painted.

The air conditioning consists of a large wall unit in the living room. The unit works well, but is loud and does not cool the master bedroom, which is on the other end of the house. It does not cool the other bedrooms either. It was uncomfortable for sleeping when daytime highs were in the mid 80's, even with the bedroom doors left open. The owners tell me that they plan to fix this soon.

The mattress sags in the master bedroom. The smoke detectors are not properly installed; they are laying on the mantle and on an coat rack.

The owners are friendly and seem eager to please.

Owner's Response: We believe feedback is a gift, and we appreciate all comments to improve our guest experience. We sincerely hope that since you gave us 4 stars that you enjoyed your trip to Valley View Cottage. We appreciated the long letter that your family left in our guest book detailing how many aspects of the cottage that they loved. We are installing new air conditioning and additionally there are ceiling fans and large windows in each bedroom. There are a total of five properly installed smoke detectors in the cottage. The firmness of a mattress is highly individual. We are very sorry that you were not comfortable with the bed in the master bedroom. To date we have only had positive comments about the beds, and we regularly solicit guest satisfaction surveys. (We actually had a call from a guest recently wanting to know the brand of our mattresses as she said it was the best nights sleep she had ever had and wanted to get the same one.) We will continue to monitor. Thank you again for your feedback.
