About Edward Sotherden
We are a young family that live in the greater Philadelphia area and we wanted a relaxing getaway that we could use and share with others.
Edward Sotherden purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Edward Sotherden chose Pocono Lake
ELMS Cottage isn’t a home with absentee owners who rarely see it and pack as many renters as possible in each year. It is a home we enjoy and maintain to our standards of cleanliness and repair. We are looking for guests seeking this type of property who will enjoy and respect ELMS Cottage as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
For several years we vacationed at a cottage and developed a great relationship with the owner. Unfortunately she had to sell it and we could no longer vacation there, but we learned the value of a good relationship between renters and homeowners. We want to develop the same type relationship with renters who keep returning to ELMS Cottage, and who will get to see it evolve as we continue to maintain and update it over the years.

Cozy cottage on a quiet street
Great updated home in a lake community! Perfect for 2 couples and 2 friends or a mix. Great kitchen and deck area with a fireplace! Grilling and relaxing with all of the activities makes for a great weekend!
Thanks! Happy to have you, and I agree with your assessment. As of October 2018 the propane grill is brand new now too!
The cabin was a wonderful and peaceful getaway from the city. It was ideal for our needs and budget. Edward is very responsive, emails were answered pretty quickly. Great location. You could walk to the Lake and pool. Over all very enjoyable stay. Thanks for this gem Edward!

Excellent family get away!
We had the most wonderful and relaxing stay at this perfect house. Clearly Edward and his wife have put so much thought and effort into this place and it shows - very comfortable, clean, and perfectly stocked with everything our family of four needed for our two week stay.
The house is a 5 min walk from one of the community pools and playgrounds and about the same to one of the beaches, while the other pool's and beaches are about a 5 minute drive. The community has many amenities and activities for kids and families to enjoy.
Communication with Ed was on point as well. He was very responsive, fair and extremely helpful prior to and during our stay.
We can't wait to come back - hopefully next time in the winter since the skiing areas are so close, otherwise next summer for a longer period.
Quaint and Clean
We had a great stay here with two kids and three adults. The cottage is small, but has everything you need smartly laid out. We enjoyed all of the community's pools, lake beaches, etc. the owner was very helpful and made sure we had all the info we needed.
This is a great lake escape
Thanks for the kind words. We're glad you had a good getaway and found the cottage comfortable. Although the main renovation was completed in early 2016 there are more plans in the works. The future projects that most excite me are refacing the fireplace with a more updated look, and replacing the carpet on the stairs with something that doesn't hide all the beautiful wood.
