About Jo Anne & Mel

Mel takes pride in managing the beautifully maintained 24 acre property. They love to share with others the peace and tranquility that Valley View Cottage provides.

Jo Anne & Mel purchased this House in 2013

Why Jo Anne & Mel chose Perrysville

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.

                                                              Perfect weekend away

                                                              Our family rented this home for a quick weekend trip away and it was more than we could have imagined. Very clean, extremely organized. We didn’t need a thing except the clothes on our backs. Joanne and Mel went above any expectations and provided everything we could have needed. Even down to the small details- shampoo, conditioner, makeup remover wipes, spices, plenty of cooking utensils, tons of towels and blankets, etc. everything is also labeled. I have horrible back issues and found these beds to be very comfortable. The ceiling fan had me sleeping like a baby. The labels everywhere made it extremely easy to find things. We didn’t have to bother them to ask for things. We enjoyed having coffee for the morning and a wine opener for the evening. They were kind enough to leave a basket of goodies for our children as well. We already intend on coming back for the summer! They provided plenty of firewood as well and we took full advantage. :) Thank you both for your hospitality and kindness. We 100% recommend this house and these owners. Best rental experience we have ever had!

                                                              A Relaxing Thanksgiving Getaway

                                                              Our family has never been away from home for Thanksgiving before, but we decided to do something different this year. The Valley View cottage ended up being a great place for the 6 of us (all adults) to spend a long holiday weekend together-- cooking, wandering, camp fire tending. The interior of the cottage was very comfortable, and the outdoors were serene and lovely. We enjoyed every minute!

                                                              It was a pleasure having your family at Vallley View Cottage for Thanksgiving 2017! We hope to see you again for a future visit!

                                                              Relaxation At Its Best!!

                                                              If you like the outdoors, this is the place to be. Our family enjoyed the beautiful scenery from the back patio and covered deck. We enjoyed visits from wild turkeys, deer, woodpeckers, bluebirds, and even a friendly skunk. Our grandson loved walking down to the pond to fish. When looking out from the patio it felt like we were in the Smoky Mountains. We had a fire burning constantly in the outdoor fire pit. The pizza oven was a great addition to the outdoor living space. The tree house was a great place for our grandson to explore. The house was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Jo Anne was a gem helping us with any questions we had. The gift basket full of goodies for the grand-kids and making smores was an extra treat! We will always cherish the family memories that were made here!!

                                                              Absolutely perfect!

                                                              We had a surprise celebration for my husband's birthday with family and could not have picked a better place. Beautiful, unique and attention to detail inside and out. The owners put so much thought into the tiniest detail to make it so easy to relax and create lasting memories. The tree house was a big hit and the many shaded seating areas to stay cool was perfect in the 90 degree heat. We and other family that enjoyed it this weekend are already planning return visits. And we LOVED the kitty that came around to visit and make us feel at home. My husband keeps saying there are no words to describe the happiness, love and joy he felt this weekend and this location was a huge part of that since he loves the outdoors. What more could we ask for?

It isn't easy to pull off a surprise birthday party, and you managed to do it so well. We are so glad that the Cottage played s role in making the birthday boy feel so special and we were delighted to be a part of that!

                                                              Great communication, easy to find, and incredibly well stocked. The outdoor space is even better in person and the pizza oven is a game changer. The cottage is baby safe and very comfortable. Already planning to come back in the spring!
