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.

Want to stay longer!
An absolute beautiful place! Mel and Jo Anne are the best hosts ever. They thought about everything. We wanted a technology-free weekend getaway with our boys. The board games were enjoyed greatly. We’re just sorry we couldn’t stay longer.
We are 3 sisters and spouses who get together for a retreat weekend once a year. This cottage is perfect for us. The kitchen is furnished with all of the cooking utensils we need for big dinners, plenty of glassware for adult beverages, and lots of kitchen appliances. It sure makes packing easier when you don't have to bring these along.
The pizza oven is an adventure in itself. I took time to research recipes in advance and we had a great time improvising even more. Despite no one being hungry, there was never anything leftover.
I've never rented a home that was so well supplied with extras; shampoos and soaps in the bathroom, spices in the kitchen, jar candles, even binoculars. These extra touches really make a difference.
The house is wonderful with that huge window overlooking the valley. And the outdoor amenities are perfect for a small group to chat. The deck under the wisteria arbor became our favorite place for afternoon cocktails. The first floor of the tree house was perfect for early evening appetizers. And the fire pit completed every day. Plenty of stars out there...and we were lucky enough to catch the early days of the Perseid meteor showers AND a flyover by the International Space Station on 2 consecutive nights.
The facilities are wonderful, the owners are close by and very responsive to your needs while you are there. They have done a great job at adding the extra touches to your stay. We are already booked for next year!
Another wonderful stay at Valley View Cottage :-)
This property has everything you'd expect to have in a vacation home rental: cleanliness, ample supplies, comfort, WIFI, and a few activities.
Now, it's what you don't expect that sets this place apart: a custom tailored welcome basket, a wood fired pizza oven, many indoor and outdoor games for all ages, high quality appliances, room zone heating/AC, ample seating around the huge patio fire pit, a custom built "tree house", 20 rolling acres to roam, plenty of shady seating areas, quiet privacy surrounded by woodland, and the list goes on.
Mel and Jo Anne are some of the best hosts in the biz. They made sure that we had everything we needed to keep the young grandkids happy (and the older "kids" too).
This was our second stay at Valley View and it was as nice as the first...need I say more?
Peaceful Pleasure was Ours!
Valley View Cottage was just as it looked in the pictures, but the setting was even better! This is a terrific getaway if you mainly want to be in a tranquil environment, enjoy the views and sounds of nature and have a wide range of sitting options (picnic table, fire pit, deck swings, by the pond, under a tree, in a tree house ...). Jo Anne and Mel are super prepared and kind as hosts. Our family of 6 (+ an infant) thoroughly enjoyed our time!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We agree that there is no place more peaceful than Valley View Cottage. So happy that you and your family enjoyed all of the quiet spaces. You were wonderful guests and we hope to see you the next time you stay in the Mohican area!
The property was absolutely beautiful! Our family of 6 had a wonderful time making memories at this property. We felt “at home” our entire stay. The setting was peaceful and refreshing to the soul!
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review! We are so happy that you all enjoyed your stay at Valley View Cottage. You were wonderful guests and we hope to see you again on a future trip to the Mohican area!
Beautiful quiet and peaceful getaway
Overall a great experience. Took the kids fishing on the pond, hikes on the trails and watched the sunrise while the deer played in the field. Very much enjoyed the proximity to Mohican for local attractions but far enough away to be secluded.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. So happy that your family enjoyed your stay at Valley View Cottage. We hope to see you again in the future!
