Specialized in helping first-timers to Arrowhead plan their trip. Kindly read everything in this description before booking ELMS Cottage.
ELMS Cottage was purchased in 2015 and was immediately remodeled to make it the cozy cottage in the Poconos that it has become. It is in Arrowhead Lake, a gated community. The 1000+ sq ft cottage features three bedrooms (queen, queen, twin mattress bunk beds), one full bath, and a laundry closet with full-size washer and dryer. There is a full kitchen with breakfast peninsula, and separate dining space. An open living room with remote controlled gas fireplace and entertainment center is at the front of the house with a large picture window to let in natural light. There are three decks and the property backs up to undeveloped private forest for ultimate privacy.
Arrowhead Lake is a friendly and down to earth Gold Star community. The community amenities include two lakes with four beaches, and three heated pools. Minisink Pool and Beach 2 are each an easy 10 minute walk from ELMS Cottage. There is an in-season Rental Shack to rent canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddle boards, bikes, and sports equipment. Fishing is allowed, and the lakes are stocked. The Lodge is available and includes wifi, fitness center, billiards room, library, lounge area with huge TV, and plenty of outdoor lakefront deck and patio space. There are many playgrounds throughout the community as well as tennis and basketball courts. The Member Services building is open and staffed 24/7 and security patrols the community 24/7.
ELMS Cottage is in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. It is in Coolbaugh Township, PA, which is less than two hours (times according to GoogleMaps) from Philadelphia, Harrisburg, New York City, and northern New Jersey. The drive to the Poconos is filled with beautiful scenery and traffic is minimal compared to driving to the shore or beach.
ELMS Cottage is a family-owned property. This 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.
