Loudonville House Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedroom Two Bathroom Cottage Sleeps Six Comfortably With Beautiful Views

Absolute peace and quiet greet you upon arrival. This is a place to get away from it all. There are no visible roads, no other houses in sight, and the only sounds you will hear is the birds chirping or maybe the faint tinkling of the wind chime in the breeze off the deck. This beautiful cottage is situated in a beautiful 24 acre park setting. Very secluded home sits on top of a hill overlooking the Mohican area valley. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck or in the living room with floor to ceiling windows. The grounds include plenty of walking trails, fishing pond with a dock 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 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 new for 2015 Weber gas BBQ. Near the cottage is a small fishing pond as well as a picnic table and seating. New for 2015-- Mitsubishi Comfort Air zoned heating and cooling throughout the cottage. New tiled floor in main bathroom with updated vanity cabinets.

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. There are plenty of quaint spots to enjoy meals in Berlin Amish Country with a variety of shopping experiences and three Ohio wineries.

About Jo Anne & Mel

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 house in 2013

Why Jo Anne & Mel chose Loudonville

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Jo Anne and Mel were wonderful hosts and the cottage is absolutely gorgeous. Jo Anne was very friendly and easy to communicate with leading up to our stay. The cottage was clean, immaculately maintained and had everything we needed. We were in the area for a particular reason, but I would love to go back and spend some time enjoying the cottage and the beautiful surroundings. Between the hosts and the cottage, you really can't ask for more!

Family and wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property has been cared for by Mel and JoAnne meticulously! From the gorgeous out-door scenes to the fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, including washer and dryer, the entire house was as accommodating and welcoming as could possibly be. These owners have taken every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible and we wished we could have stayed longer. We will plan another stay at the Valley View Cottage for sure, when we have nothing else to think about but enjoying it and relaxing.

The perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

From the directions coming in to instructions to end our weekend, everything was perfect. Jo Ann and Mel have a beautiful home set up on a hill with everything you need but the food.

We all commented on the 3 very comfortable beds with warm quilts, comforters, and good quality pillows. They have many board games there and we brought our own but we never used them. We enjoyed the 20+acres either just sitting outside, enjoying many fires in the firepit, walking the path's on the property or attempting to fish. It was still too cold for the fish!

We were the first to use the homes brand new grill. They have an assortment of grill utensils, other everyday kitchen utensils, mixing bowels, plates, glasses, mugs, and silverware. Jo Ann and Mel left s'mores for us but we never got around to making them because we brought too much food! But so thoughtful.

We were sad to have to end our relaxing weekend but when the time came, they have instructions typed out of what to do. They are so organized and very easy to work with. Things couldn't have easier and more perfect for individuals who work a lot and just wanted a relaxing weekend.

Thank you Jo Ann and Mel !
