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 sound 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. This 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-tired pizza oven. New this year is a furnished solar powered tree house\observatory which 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 a pet free vacation rental.

At the side of the cottage is a new furnished solar powered tree house which can sleep up to three.

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 vehicles are necessary to navigate the maintained gravel driveway.


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 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 in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Could never imagine a gem like this existed just a 45 minute drive from our home. We have visited cabins in Hocking Hills multiple times. None could ever compare to this cottage. Immaculate, breathtaking views and no attention to detail overlooked. Fishing pond was just what the guys needed. The tree house was the perfect retreat for family game time. Multiple cozy areas to choose from. Location made us feel like we were hundreds of miles from anywhere. So peaceful,Yet just a few miles from all the things Mohican has to offer. Jo Anne and Mel truly know how to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

It was absolutely breathtaking and amazing

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped onto the property, it was wonderful! The house was beautiful and the views were amazing. The attention to detail made this cottage feel like home. We had a small wedding ceremony with just my family and Jo Anne and Mel left us a bottle of champagne and 2 glass flutes to toast our wonderful day. We fished, played ring toss and tether ball. They also left a basket for the girls of bubbles and all of the fixings you need to make smores. We didn't want to leave when it was time. We can't wait to go back and spend more time!

Beautiful Cottage, Hospitable Owners, Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful trip! Great for the adults AND kids! Our only regret is that we would have loved to have stayed an extra day at least. Jo Ann and Mel are absolutely wonderful and hospitable, thinking of everything you might need during your stay! The linens are very nice. The cottage is so beautifully decorated and very well maintained and CLEAN! The treehouse is so fun for the kids, and there is plenty to do to occupy your time.

We definitely plan to revisit...hopefully this Fall!

Beautifully equipped, astonishing view and all-around fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house feels like a home, and the pride of ownership is evident. The quality of the beds and sheets, the abundance of kitchen items, the house itself--so good you don't want to leave. One could sit in the living room staring out at the valley from on high for hours--it feeds your soul. The outdoor porch with wisteria canopy is a place to relax, complete with hanging swing and a pond to complete the picture. We stayed here over a graduation weekend and had such a wonderful visit, after the emotional and physical strain of a college graduation (there is almost more stuff than you can imagine and one wonders how on earth one will get all that into 1, 2 or even 3 cars...) we settled into Valley View for our last evening of the weekend, playing board games, enjoying steak cooked on the grill (there's a pizza oven too) and wishing we could stay just one more day. And the tree-house is a work of art! Truly a special place. JoAnne and Mel are absolutely wonderful hosts, responding quickly and generously with advice, help, and answers. We loved our stay there!

Experience the natural beauty in the heart of Mohican Country. There are scheduled events for all seasons and activities and fun experiences all year.

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.
