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 WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR GUEST USE SPRING 2017. It will have an observation deck and binoculars to view the Mohican valley, birds, deer and other wildlife. This 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 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. New comfortable Adirondack chairs from Amish Oak Furniture and a new picnic table with two benches complete the patio. Nearby is a new swing overlooking the fishing pond and scenic views. There is also seating on the dock and a a picnic table by the pond..

A whisper quiet Mitsubishi Comfort Air zoned heating and cooling system keeps everyone comfortable. A good night's rest is assured with comfy ultra premium Euro Pillow-Top mattresses with charming Pottery Barn bedding.

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 with Mohican Forest being adjacent to the property. The home is accessed by a gravel driveway. In snowy weather 4-wheel drive to vehicles are necessary to navigate the maintained gravel driveway.

Activities:

This home is situated in an area that provides countless ways to spend your days. The location, while secluded, offers easy access to all of the fun activities that the Mohican area is known for. Enjoy all water sports or rent a boat at 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 harness obstacle course in the air for ages 5 and up) are located at Mohican Adventures and Fun Center ten minutes away in Loudonville.

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. 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 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.

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!

We hope that you'll come back in milder weather to enjoy all that the cottage and the Mohican area has to offer!

We could not have been happier with both the home and the surrounding property. The decor is cozy & welcoming & well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the patio & firepit and the trails through the surrounding acreage and woods. Hope to return again during the summer or fall!

Great property in Mohican area

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our family of four plus two grandparents stayed at this property the weekend after Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time! We walked in to see a beautiful basket of goodies on the counter from a nearby cider mill, which we definitely recommend. The home itself is very cozy, with beautiful views of the back yard. All amenities were provided. They have a cabinet full of board games and puzzles which we took advantage of. They have satellite TV with great reception and their wifi is very strong. The bedrooms were quite comfortable. The property is beautiful. We were commenting on how enjoyable the property would be at any time of the year--gorgeous, expansive views ideal for all seasons, a fishing pond, outdoor games like corn hole, and a patio area with fire pit, grill, and pizza oven. The home is close to Mohican State Park and lots of outdoor activities. We would love to come back in the summer and take advantage of all that this home and this area have to offer.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This is a beautiful property with views of trees, pond, nature, deer, woodpeckers, wild turkeys. Very serene, secluded. Large wall of windows in great room shows off the lovely setting. Even our little baby liked gazing out these windows! Lots of seating outdoors with several swings, wind chimes, firepit, and a really cool outdoor pizza oven. The entire home is very neat and clean, yard and landscaping really nice. The owners, Mel and Jo Anne were just delightful. Very responsive to calls, emails, questions and made sure we had everything we needed including making sure we had cell phone reception in this remote area (which we did when linked to their WiFi). We have rented a lot of places on VRBO. This one was one of the most well equipped regarding things you would normally bring yourself (papertowels,tp, soap, hand soap, lotion, laundry soap, kitchen spices, cooking spray, and supplies like saran wrap, etc, etc.). We cooked most of our meals there and had every dish/ pan and cooking utensil we needed. There were many towels all neatly stacked and organized in the bathrooms. Lots of magazine and books to read, even books for children. We had a new baby and they even supplied a pack n play! This was really nice and one less bulky thing for us to bring. They also left fishing poles for my husband which was nice. We really really appreciated how accommodating and thoughtful they were. Mohican State Park is very near and worth checking out. Would highly recommend this rental! Thanks for a nice break away!

Valley View Cottage

Verified Stay

We stayed at this property in October with 2 other couples. It was the PERFECT size and location for a fall getaway. We were close to hiking at Mohican State Park and Malabar Farms. We hiked during the day and enjoyed the beautiful grounds in the afternoon and evening. We finished our day off sitting by the fire pit for hours. The house is stocked with everything you need and the pizza oven was a hug hit. The owners attention to detail was amazing. They gave us ideas of things to do and places to eat. There was quick to respond to any question we had. I would highly recommend this property and can't wait to go back.
