Overview

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. There is a new furnished solar powered tree house/ observatory. It has both an upper and lower deck to view the Mohican valley, birds, deer and other wildlife. This home includes all the amenities that you need to enjoy your vacation.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT A VENUE FOR PARTIES OR CEREMONIES. WE ARE BEST SUITED FOR SMALL FAMILIES, A NATURE RETREAT FOR A SMALL GROUP, OR A COUPLES GETAWAY. Valley View Cottage is a great place to create family memories!

About Jo Anne & Mel

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.

Jo Anne & Mel purchased this house in 2013

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.

The Valley View Cottage is 5 Star+ because you will enjoy . . .

***** spectacular view of Mohican area with ACRES of well groomed setting for personal outdoor enjoyment - no distracting views or noise of neighbors or roads!

***** a beautiful, newly built, free-standing tree house fun for kids and adults; 8 and 11 year old grandsons loved sleeping alone in the tree house on the provided cots! Where else do you get this?

***** your own small fishing pond with fishing poles and tackle provided; each grandson caught a fish!

***** tether ball, rope swing, croquet, corn hole, fire ring, multiple outdoor cozy seating areas for reading, having coffee, a beer, just relaxing - enjoyed them all!

****** (yes 6 *) the outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven makes the BEST homemade pizza - directions, cut wood, pans all provided! We made pizzas 2 of the 4 nights we were there!

***** the cottage is very tastefully decorated, very clean and furnished with everything you need (and more)in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. I loved that all linens, paper products, soaps, hair blowers are generously supplied!

***** Jo Anne and Mel are wonderful hosts - they will take good care of you if you need anything - prompt responses, professional, polite, personable!

***** wonderful welcoming note and basket with bubble wands and the makings for s'mores enjoyed by kids and adults - nice surprise on arriving!

***** location, location, location - close to Mohican Adventures (great for ropes course, go carts, mini-golf); horse back riding, day passes for pool and great hiking at Mohican State Park, we didn't have time this trip but there's also canoeing, kayaking, tubing at Mohican Adventures, bike rentals (Lexington -not far at all) and trail, Malabar Farm, etc. Jo Anne and Mel provide a large binder with info for restaurants and tons of activities. We never ate out (very unusual for us) because the kitchen was so well supplied and the pizza oven was irresistible!

Valley View Cottage offers the best of Beautiful Ohio! You will not be disappointed. Can't wait to return!

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such an amazing time! The house was gorgeous and nothing can beat the view. My nephew had a blast in the treehouse and used the binoculars to look for dinosaurs 😁I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in a gorgeous location located right next to Mohican. Or just for a beautiful getaway.

Experience the natural beauty in the heart of Mohican Country. There are scheduled events for all seasons and activities and fun experiences all year. Valley View Cottage is located just three miles from the infamous Mowery Cider Mill which has been operated by the Mowery family since 1901. Also in nearby Loudonville is the popular Mohican Adventures and Fun Center. It offers a wide variety of activities such as canoeing the Mohican River, kayaking, rafting, go-karts and offers 3 top notch eighteen-hole mini-golf courses for your enjoyment. It also offers a new attraction called the Aerial Adventure Park which is an obstacle course with harnesses high in the air for ages 5 and up. Pleasant Hill Lake is just minutes away for beach fun or to rent a boat at the Pleasant Hill Marina. Other activities include Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Snow Trails for skiing and tubing fun, Malabar State Park with Malabar Farm and Malabar Farm Restaurant just minutes away. There is also Mohican Lodge and Mohican State Forest for amazing hiking trails, the B&O Bike Trail, Kingwood Center, The Ohio State Reformatory and the Living Bible Museum. A wonderful day trip would be to drive to Berlin Amish Country for shopping, visiting many Ohio wineries located there and to experience the wonderful Amish cooking in several fine restaurants. Golfing is near by as well as Pleasant Hill Lake and all water activities and boating. There is also nearby Pleasant Hill Golf Course.

Downtown Loudonville also has many shops and several dining establishments. You should not miss The Four Seasons store on Main Street. It has a little something for everyone and no one can put together floral arrangements better than store owner Angie. There is a shop called Creative Outlet that features many types of hand made jewelry and items from out west that the owner has obtained. Everyone in this wonderful town is friendly and helpful.
