Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Jo Anne & Mel live in Perrysville on Pleasant Hill Lake, one mile from Valley View Cottage. It was love at first sight when they first saw Valley View Cottage 20 years ago. Their daughters were young and they would take hikes around their home on Pleasant Hill Lake. One day they walked through the woods and fields and came upon Valley View Cottage. The girls wanted to immediately pack their bags and move there. They simply smiled and imagined how wonderful it would be to own such a place. It is amazing how fast the years go by. They were tempted to buy their dream house but the time was not quite right. Thankfully, Jo Anne's brother Terry loved Valley View Cottage as much as they did and was ready to purchase it. Seven more years went by with them taking care of Valley View Cottage for Terry. His job kept taking him further and further away from Ohio and this fall he asked them if they were ready to buy the property. They said yes and their dream of twenty years came true. They love to share with others the peace and tranquility that this cozy cottage provides.
Why the Owner Chose Loudonville:
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. Some guests have said that the property has a magical quality to it. It is like stepping outside of our present time into a tranquil natural land of peace and quiet. 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 and hiking trails complete the property as you revel in the beauty of the Mohican countryside.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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 (a jungle gym 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.) Everyone you meet in this rural area is friendly and helpful.
