Description of the Perrysville vacation home rental
SPECIAL-- Book 2 nights, Third Night FREE November 2016
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. 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. There is a separate laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer along with all the supplies that are needed.

We have wireless internet, new Flat screen TV with satellite with regular and premium channels, a stereo with a CD player and an IPOD dock.

The new stone patio also has a 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 complete this outdoor area. Near the cottage is a small fishing pond as well as a picnic table and seating.

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.

Our family of six adults had a wonderful weekend at your cottage, including canoeing the Mohican River and touring Malabar Farm. The views from inside and outside the home are awesome. The grounds around the cottage are park-like and we enjoyed watching the squirrels and wild turkeys. The cottage is nicely decorated and spotless. We also loved how serene the setting is. A fire in the patio pit on our final evening capped off a wonderful weekend.
My Response

Thank you for the nice review! So glad that you were able to take advantage of some of the many activities that the Mohican area has to offer. Malabar Farm and Malabar Farm Restaurant are two of our very favorite places to go. Mohican Adventures is the very best place to go canoeing, rafting or kayaking! So glad that you got a chance to go there, as well as have family time at Valley View Cottage.We hope that you will keep our vacation rental in mind for your next trip to the Mohican area!

Our group of six have been coming here for 3 years. We love the cottage. Jo Ann & Mel make everything wonderful. You can fish, which we did and caught a lot, threw them back but it was so relaxing, You could take walks. Made pizza in the pizza oven, first one was a little too brown, but we made more and they turned out really good best pizza ever. If you want a relaxing place this is it. They have everything you need and more. I would highly recommend it. Thank you Mel & Joann you are wonderful host. We are planning to continue to return and keep going back every year.Recommended for: Age 55+,
My Response

The greatest compliment we can receive for Valley View Cottage is guests that want to stay again. We are so happy that you had a wonderful third visit to our vacation rental! So happy that you enjoyed using the pizza oven-- it really is simple to use with the directions provided in the guest info book. We always tell our guests that if they ever have any trouble to call and Mel will be right over to assist. It's such advantage to our guests that we are just a phone call away and live just a mile form Valley View Cottage. We are always available to help or provide anything that a guest may have forgotten. We will be looking forward to your return visit next year-- and thanks so much for the great review!

The cottage is really clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there for your use. The property is so peaceful and my children enjoyed fishing, hiking and the swing! The cottage is close to everything. Mel and Jo Ann are so wonderful and accomadating. Every Labor Day we rent a cottage or cabin. We have been to a few places in Hocking Hills and Kelly's Island. We have booked with many owners and Mel and Jo Ann are by far the nicest and most helpful and kind people we have met. We loved everything and we hope to come back and stay a bit longer next time.
My Response

We are so happy that you enjoyed your holiday weekend at Valley View Cottage! Really glad that you made it down to Mohican Adventures-- just a ten minute drive from the cottage. Mel loved meeting all of you there at his hot dog stand and is always so happy to always treat all of our guests to lunch with his "World Famous" hot dogs:) It is always so nice to hear that our guests find that they have everything that they need when the stay at our vacation rental. Now that you and your family have discovered the wonderful Mohican area, we hope that you'll come back for another visit. You are most welcome guests and we would love to have you stay at Valley View Cottage again in the future.

What a VIEW!!!
Date of Stay
Aug 25, 2016

We got to the house in the pitch black of the night and the driveway is super long and we weren't 100% sure we were at the right house.. I called Joanne and she was just great.. got in and I know I booked the place online and the pictures are true to how wonderful it is but when I woke up to that view!! I was blown away.. The AC was kicking and since it was super hot out, It felt great. The kitchen is super well appointed with everything you need to cook a nice home cooked meal. I bought stuff to cook pizza on the pizza oven outside but it got too late to do that after we returned from our day at the range.. (we did the appleseed project rifle program in New Philadelphia) I wish we had more time to explore the house/lake and countryside but we were there for the rifle class and didn't do much else.. we did find ourselves at the Football Hall of Fame which was an hour away.. The house was GREAT.. Joanne is awesome.. Highly recommend this house if you're interested in a home away from home near the Amish country or other things in Ohio's countryside..Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers,
My Response

Thanks for the great review of your stay at Valley View Cottage! We hope that you'll come back and visit again when you have more time to spend on the multitude of activities in this Mohican area. It's wonderful that you went to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which is only an hour away. It would also be great to check out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which is just 1 1/2 hours away. It would also be fun to check out nearby Mohican Adventures, which is the best place by far for canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and mini golf-- only a ten minute drive from Valley View Cottage in Loudonville. So glad that your mom got to experience our favorite restaurant-- Malabar Farm Restaurant! We really love the sign that you bought for the cottage-- it is the perfect touch. Thanks so much for being such great guests!

While many hosts strive to be the best, few succeed like Jo Anne and Mel. You will not find a more friendly, helpful and accommodating couple. What a wonderful experience. A lovely, well appointed and comfortable cottage on 24 captivating acres. The view, spectacular; the pond, charming and lovely; the night sky, breathtaking. And the house...all the amenities you could ever need. Short of packing your clothing and fresh food, everything else, and I mean everything, is there for your convenience. Seven days was not enough time to explore and enjoy all that was offered in the area. I can only hope that I have the opportunity to revisit Valley View Cottage again (and again).

We just returned from a week at Valley View Cottage. What spectacular views and a picturesque setting. Our family of 7 (including a nearly one-year-old) had a fabulous stay. Mel & Jo Anne are gracious hosts who truly want guests to have a comfortable stay! We were greeted by a gift basket of ingredients to make smores and Jo Anne even provided my favorite coffee, Starbucks French Roast, after reading about it in my book. How thoughtful! She also provided a pack & play and high chair for our granddaughter. The house is supplied with everything you would need and the beds, linens and bath towels were of the best quality. We’ve rented homes in the past, but none of them had such fine linens. The kitchen was fully-furnished and had numerous appliances such as a toaster, popcorn maker and blender. This was excellent since we hosted a 4th of July BBQ with family who live in the area. There was plenty of room for us to gather in the living room, on the porch or the back patio. The patio had a large fire pit which we enjoyed several evenings and the pizza oven was awesome! We played croquet, corn hole and fished quite a bit. We even played a few of the games stashed in the cabinet. The home location was so private it felt like we were the only ones around except for several deer we spotted during the week. This home is a perfect location for touring the area. We visited Mohican, the Reformatory, Amish country, Cedar Point and even drove to Cleveland to watch the Indians one day. We will definitely return in the near future. We think the Fall would be just as gorgeous! Don’t hesitate to reserve this property. You’ll be pleased you did!

Wow - that's all I can say about this house. My husband and I, along with 2 other couples, take a weekend trip each year and Valley View Cottage takes the cake on the best place we've stayed! Mel & JoAnne are AMAZING hosts and provided so much information and help to us. I've never dealt with better owners before. They are definitely invested in this property and care about the guests' experience. We even got a wonderful present and note waiting for us, as all 3 couples were celebrating anniversaries! We loved everything about this house, particularly the back patios. Believe me when I say the pictures don't do it justice. The views alone are amazing but the multi-tiered patio is just fantastic. We braved the cicadas to enjoy the grounds and saw lots of wildlife. We even canceled some tentative plans to just spend more time at the house! We got plenty of use out of the fire pit and pizza oven - Mel & JoAnne even provided the wood for both!! We took advantage of the golf privileges, which was a bunch of fun - a great little par 3 course. We also ate at Malabar Farm (based on Mel & JoAnne's recommendation) and loved it! But our favorite part was just relaxing by the fire and playing cornhole out back. The inside of the house was spotless and comfortable. We're used to bringing lots of extra items for cooking with us but everything we could think of was already at the house! Beds were all very comfortable and bathrooms were great! I have absolutely no complaints about this property except that I wish we could have spent more time there! You will not regret staying at Valley View Cottage. I know our group will be back (hopefully soon). Thank you, Mel and JoAnne!!

Thank you so much for the incredible review! Mel and I are so happy that you and your friends chose to stay at Valley View Cottage for such a special occasion. We are so glad that it met your expectations. Our goal is total guest satisfaction, and it makes us so happy when guests love the cottage and grounds as much as we do. I'm glad that you took advantage of the free golf privileges that we offer to all our guest at Pleasant Hill Golf Course. The owner of the course has already told us what a wonderful group you were. So thrilled that you took our suggestion to go to Malabar Farm Restaurant. It really is so special! We hope that Jai was your server and was working as we had requested him for you. He is the best! Thank you so much for the wonderful care you took of our property during your stay. You and your friends are most welcome guests and we hope to see you again for a future stay!

Dear Jo Anne and Mel, We had a spectacular time at your beautiful cottage. Your attention to detail shines through in every inch of the setting. We have been at other places that we liked, but after being here at the cottage, it is NOW our number one choice, which we will return to next year with our family. We also plan to have a get away weekend in the fall with two other couples. The grounds are well attended and gorgeous. I especially liked that the cottage is stocked with every kitchen appliance, spice and gadget you could ever want. It is nice to be in a place where you don't have to worry about remembering paper plates, napkins, etc. It is so kind of you that all we needed for cooking was already there. The beds are super comfortable. We were really happy that you provided nice fluffy towels and superior bedding. Wonderful!!! Another big plus was the cable TV and good internet connection which is rare in many places. So nice to be able to connect in a beautiful setting. Vince and his daughter's family loved your place.The little girls were not big fans of the cicadas, but it provided a good story that we will never forget. (The cicadas are not that energized back in Cleveland and we had fun making a mad dash to get in the car when we were going out.) Evan (our grandson) had fun fishing too! Thank you again for your hospitality, your beautiful home and a really lovely weekend. Kind regards, Nancy

I am a little hesitant to share how wonderful this property is for fear that reservations will fill up and it will be impossible to book again when we want to go back! We have stayed in a great many vacation-rentals-by-owner and this property is unsurpassed. It is spacious, immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, incredibly well-stocked for cooking and entertainment needs, easily accessible, and so comfortable. Jo Anne and Mel seem to have thought of EVERYTHING and their responsiveness, warm hospitality, and thoughtfulness made it feel more like we were staying in the home of a friend or family member than renting from a stranger. If there were awards for best vacation rentals, this home would win year in and year out. Thank you for all the time, effort, and resources you have invested to make this an amazing place for a family get-away.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to post such a wonderful and thoughtful review of your stay at Valley View Cottage. It was so nice to have guests for an occasion as special as Thanksgiving, and we are so glad that you had everything that you needed for a comfortable and memorable stay. It was exciting to have you be the first guests who used the new wood- fired pizza oven and stone grill. Thanks for taking such wonderful care of that new addition and of the cottage.

I just want to add to the wonderful reviews that are listed about this home. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and the owners go over and beyond to make your stay comfortable. Though we did not see the owners, there was a fresh pie for us left on the counter, little extras for our 3 year old granddaughter such as a booster seat and stool in the bathroom, and a kitchen that is furnished perfectly with just the right amount of dishes, cooking utensils and spices and the extras you forget to bring. Though it was the end of November, the weather was pleasant enough to walk down to the pond and around the beautiful property. We are looking forward to going back for another stay!
My Response
What a wonderful surprise to come home on Christmas Eve and find your lovely review in my inbox! Many times when Mel and I are traveling, we love to use vacation rental homes to stay. It's harder make a decision when a review simply states that a place was nice, or that the guests had a great time without any specific information about the lodging. We appreciate the sincerity and thoughtfulness of your review. . We see each and every review as a very special gift to us because of the time and effort it takes. We really do try to give our guests the best experience possible while anticipating what could be needed for a stay. It was an absolute pleasure having you and your family at Valley View Cottage-- you were perfect guests! We really hope that you will keep our vacation rental in mind with future travel plans to the Mohican area.

Wonderful Two Weeks at Valley View

My wife and I spent a very relaxing and comfortable two weeks at Valley View Cottage. The house and grounds are beautiful, well maintained, fully equipped for every comfort and very clean. We especially enjoyed the arrangement of the TV viewing area with comfortable chairs (loved the recliner), and a table for setting beverages, etc. Jo Anne and Mel went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and to provide everything we needed, they even provided a beautiful family of deer who visited the property every evening, at times we saw up to eight at a time. With many places to visit in the surrounding area such as the Holmes County Amish area the two weeks were gone and we felt like we had just arrived. We highly recommend this property for couples or families, it is all one could expect and more for a wonderful vacation home.

Thank you Jo Anne and Mel for opening up your home for our family gathering, January 8th weekend. We enjoyed our stay and everything was perfect. Everyone loved the pizzas we fixed on Saturday night in your pizza oven. My husband enjoyed making the fire both for the oven and the fire pit! We will definitely tell our friends about your lovely home and the beautiful acreage!

My Response
Thank you so much for the nice review. Thank you also for the wonderful comments left in our guest book. We are so happy that you enjoyed using the Italian wood-fired pizza oven and fire pit. The step by step instructions for the pizza oven kept in the INFO book on the kitchen counter shows how to use the oven. I'm glad that it worked so well for you. It's so wonderful when family can get together and spend quality time together-- Valley View Cottage is the perfect place for that! Please keep us in mind for future travel plans to Mohican!

Thank you so much Mel and Jo Anne for the wonderful stay. I loved all the attention. The pasta and other dishes you provided were to die for. I will be coming back on the Fall. I am crazy about the nature, the pond... and that amazing pizza oven. We had a lot of fun making our own pizza. I do appreciate and value that you provided all our groceries. Again many thanks.... we will be back for sure...

My family had a lovely stay at Valley View cottage over Valentine's Day weekend. I surprised my husband with a spontaneous trip, and we weren't disappointed in the incredible views and well appointed accommodations. Within an hour of our arrival, we were treated with the sight of eight deer playing less than ten yards from the wall to wall windows. The cottage was tastefully decorated and incredibly clean, and there were many unexpected amenities. Our two year old daughter enjoyed the variety of age appropriate games that were available at the cottage. It was so convenient that the owners provided a pack and play, where our little one slept soundly. There was even a booster seat at the dining table, as well as a step stool in the bathroom for our convenience. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and the owners were so accommodating to our needs. We will definitely be back!

Amazing cottage near Mohican State Park!!!
We had 3 couples staying at the cottage for the weekend. There was plenty of room for all to kick back and relax! Joanne and Mel were such great hosts!! The cottage is very well stocked! All you need to bring is your food and clothes!! The weather was cold including some snow but we still hiked at Mohican, used the outside pizza oven and built a campfire. The star gazing was amazing!! We can't wait to return when it is warmer and take advantage of the beautiful patio space. The view from the family room wall of windows is fantastic! Thank you Joanne and Mel for creating such a beautiful place for us to visit!! Ken and Rose and family

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Valley View Cottage and the Mohican area has great experiences in all seasons. We look forward to a return visit from all of you!

Relaxing with a wonderful view
I'd been working out of town for 4 months, so after I returned I rented this home for my wife and a few other mom-friends to have a weekend away. They all loved it. Easy to get to from Columbus, the house was inviting and sits on a beautiful piece of land. They went hiking at Mohican SP and then drank wine and watched a thunderstorm in the distance. She came home relaxed and thankful.

This is one of the best homes that we have ever stayed in. Jo Ann and Mel have made their cottage feel like you are home. The linens and the beds are so comfortable. The living room furniture is so comfortable to relax on and the view overlooking the serene fields. The outdoor fire pit was spectacular to gather around and the Italian outdoor pizza oven was fun and the pizzas we made were delicious and a blast to make as a family. We had such a wonderful time with our family and this lovely home and its abundant amenities made it all the more special. It is so nice to have spices to cook with, paper products to use and laundry detergent to wash your clothes. There are games galore to play and a wide assortment of books to take down and read. My most precious, private time was to take walks on the trails surrounding the property and even walking down the road to the lake. The wind rushing through the trees was a stress reducer for me along with swinging on the porch swing or sitting on the dock overlooking the pond. We intend to come back to bond with family and relax. Thank you for everything--many fond memories were made at your beautiful home away from home.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review! It was a pleasure having you and your family at Valley View Cottage. We are so happy that you had so much quality family time there, and some goor weather too! Mel and I were at the cottage today to celebrate Easter and used both the fire pit and the outdoor pizza oven. It is quite festive, and we are so happy that you were able to take advantage of them. It's getting some spring color up there now with buds in the tress and the forsythia in bloom. The views out the great room windows will just get better and better as spring moves into summer. We really hope that you will keep Valley View Cottage in mind for future travel plans!

We had such a GREAT time at Valley View! Great quality family time with the kids and their spouses...food, games, late night campfire conversations. It was perfect meeting Mel on Wednesday, as we loved hearing about the history of the place and the personal tour of the house and grounds, and about local attractions and food. We were very comfortable and they had everything we needed to relax and just enjoy the downtime. The pizza oven was a huge hit! So was the Croquet set. We loved the spacious (and challenging) grounds for outdoor games like Frisbee, Bocce Ball, and Croquet. The home was very well furnished and nicely appointed with all the little extras. The setting is very private, yet close to activities/food/supplies/hiking. We watched several deer wander through the HUGE "yard" behind the home, and even saw three turkeys sprint across the yard early one morning. The patio and deck space layout is perfect and comfortable, and Mel supplied plenty of firewood for the pizza oven and the oversized firepit on the patio. The outdoor space is loaded with chairs of varying types. The indoor space is inviting and comfortable with a well stocked game cupboard containing an impressive variety of games. The WiFi is plenty fast, and the kitchen fully stocked with cooking hardware, just bring your own food and drinks. This is definitely on the short list of rentals that we we would use again in the future :-) Thanks so much for making this place available :-)

I can't say enough about what a beautiful home and what a wonderful stay we had. But it was completely overshadowed by how wonderful and accommodating Jo Anne and Mel, the home owners, were. My mother had recently had hip surgery and was going to be staying with us. While I was inquiring about the house I asked Jo Anne to send a picture of the bathroom so that I could see if it would accommodate Mom. Within hours I received a text with a picture of the bathroom but, not only that, Jo Anne went ahead and had grab bars installed in the bathroom. This was before we even offered to rent the home! Once we had decided to rent the home and then arrived we couldn't have been more pleased. We had plenty of activities on the property. Our two kids went fishing, on hikes, enjoyed throwing rocks in the pond. We cooked a pizza in the pizza oven which was great. When my Aunt came down from Cleveland to stop in and say high she got lost and just happened to run into Mel. Mel lead her up to the house. Mel also, upon request, came right up and hooked up the tetherball which the kids loved. We also enjoyed sitting by the firepit at night. The home had a very well stocked kitchen for meals. It included many of the thing you find having to buy when renting other properties such as, coffee, sugar, paper plates and even a spice rack. There were plenty of things to do off the property as well. During the day we took some time to visit some sites on the Shawshank Trail including the Shawshank Prison, which was incredible to see and any fan of the movie will truly enjoy. My wife and I hiked with the kids to Big Lyon's Waterfall in Mohican State Park. It was very relaxing and eventful, when we wanted it to be, and overall great stay. While we were driving home Jo Anne reached out to let us know that we had left one of my son's stuffed animals. She offered to ship it, I offered to pay, she said "Don't worry about it." and then shipped his little dog with a note attached that said how much his dog had missed him. Once again above and beyond. Thank you Mel and Jo Anne for a great family trip, you both are wonderful people!
