We are a retired couple (one an ex-teacher of kindergarten and younger, the other, an ex-television director) We make frequent trips to Cleveland and Cincinnati to see grandchildren and family, so although we are not always here, we are happy to share our dock for coffee and relaxation or maybe a kayak or SUP for a little adventure on Apple Valley Lake, (25 minutes from Loudonville).

Apple Valley Lakefront homes are mostly second homes for owners but we live here full-time. It is a fun place for kids and adults, though now that we are here full-time, we much prefer the quiet weekdays as opposed to the very busy weekends when everyone comes to play!..;-)

Our driveway is short but we do have a 50 AMP electrical hookup that you are welcome to use!

House Rules

--We want your visit to be enjoyable AND safe so we ask that all children and any non-swimmers wear provided life vests if they are on the docks or near the water. Just let us know what sizes you will need when you contact us for a stay! Thank you for your understanding!

--Please no smoking on the property and no generators after 10PM--You have access to 50 AMP service if you'd like to use it.

--We are frequently either in Cleveland or Cincinnati visiting grandchildren so we just ask that you treat the property respectfully and be good neighbors so that we are able to continue offering our home for overnight stays!

Access Road Conditions

Apple Valley is hilly but nothing that we can't easily maneuver with our own RV. (40' Class A, 13'6" tall)

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

All vehicles have to be in the driveway so you may need to disconnect to make that happen! (Driveway is approximately 40 feet long)

Most Gracious Hosts

BLynnes were fabulous hosts., They could not have been more gracious. They were as great as any host we'd ever stayed with. They treated us like friends that they've known for years. Pretty sure we'll get back to see them again.
