About the property

Three Bedroom Two Bathroom Cottage Sleeps Six Comfortably With Gorgeous 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. Valley View 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 pit roasting marshmallows or making s'mores or have a BBQ on the gas grill or the stone BBQ. Or create your own pizza and cook it in the made in Italy outdoor wood-fired pizza oven. A NEW SOLAR POWERED TREEHOUSE IS AVAILABLE FOR GUEST USE SPRING 2017. It will have an observation deck to view the Mohican valley, birds, deer and other wildlife. This home includes all the amenities that you need to enjoy your vacation.

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 also 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 a Weber gas BBQ. The new stone patio also has an outdoor made in Italy wood-fired pizza oven and a stone grill area for cooking food using charcoal or wood.

About Jo Anne & Mel

Jo Anne & Mel live near Valley View Cottage. Their goal is to make all of their guests feel welcome, comfortable and at home as soon as they arrive at their cottage. Guest satisfaction is of utmost importance to both Jo Anne and Mel. Jo Anne handles all bookings and communications herself and does all the inside caretaking of the cottage.

Why Jo Anne & Mel chose Ohio

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. 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 ,outdoor wood fired pizza oven, tree house/observatory, fire pit 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 (an obstacle harness course 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.) Mohican State Park is minutes away with amazing hiking trails. Everyone you meet in this rural area is friendly and helpful.

Exquisite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location. We thought we came prepared, but this house is very equipped for its purpose; game boards, TV, Pizza oven, great bathrooms, etc. The house is beautiful, it's exactly what you see in the pictures and more. We couldn't really use the tree house because of the weather, but it is very nicely built, the fire pit area was the highlight of our getaway. Relaxing, beautiful place and house, will definitely come back again! Thank you for creating such a pleasurable stay for your guests Mel and Jo Anne.

Thank you for the wonderful review!

The Valley View Cottage and property is beautiful and Jo Anne and Mel are great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with our two grown daughters, their spouses and our baby grandson in the cottage. It was the perfect getaway. It was a terrific place to relax and enjoy family time together. The views from the cottage are amazing-the house is neat as a pin and the kitchen is well equipped. Our hosts were so thoughtful and accomodating. We hope to return and I would highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty of central Ohio.

Great site for a girls get away

  • 5 of 5

This was our thirteenth year for our girls get away and your cottage ranked at the top of our list of favorites. We are already talking about a return visit for the group and also trips with our families. The cottage was perfect for our needs and the cottage was equipped with everything and more than we could dream of having. Joann and Mel were so helpful by providing help with suggestions for activities in the area, providing extension cords for a heating pad and also one to help us deice the locks to our truck, and to help us non techy girls with dvd player. We enjoyed viewing the wildlife from the gorgeous great room. Looking forward to trying out the tree house and pizza oven our next trip. Thanks so much for the welcome note and pie. We made many happy memories and would highly recommend your cottage for an enjoyable place to stay. Truly all you have to take are your clothes and food. Everything else is provided.

Cozy Cottage Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful few days we had at Valley View Cottage! We arrived just a few days after Christmas and felt instantly at home on this beautiful property. The owners thought of every detail! We were welcomed with a guest basket from a local cider mill, a handwritten note, a glowing fireplace & a little Christmas tree twinkling on the hearth. The cottage is set up for comfort and a cozy stay throughout with full amenities in the kitchen & bathrooms and very comfortable beds and furniture. The outdoor pizza oven is a fun bonus and the view overlooking the valley is spectacular!! We can't wait to return in a warmer season to enjoy the fire pit, grilling and outdoor seating and the new tree house that is being built, as well as the many activities available in the Mohican region.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice review of Valley View Cottage. We were so happy to host your family during the holiday season! The tree house has come a long way since you were here. Almost done! You can follow the progress, if you like, on the Valley View Cottage Face book page. We hope that you'll come back in milder weather to enjoy all that the cottage and the Mohican area has to offer!
