About Mark Hanoka

I am a 38 year old professional with a career in the hospitality industry. I graduated with a hospitality degree from Cornell University. Ultimate comfort and guest satisfaction is most important to me and I have given my vacation homes a modern, fresh twist that is hard to get out in the Poconos.

Mark Hanoka purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Hanoka chose Tobyhanna

This property will offer an alternative to the mainstream vacation homes that you will find in the Poconos. My home home features modern amenities, an updated fresh and sleek look that you would find in fine hotels in an urban area. I have included flat screen TV's, modern furniture, great lighting and an overall great look.

This home is also centrally located in the Pocono mountains. It is located in a safe area in a private community. There are major attractions in close proximity to the community. Resort mountains include Camelback mtn(20 min), Jack Frost/Big Boulder(35 min) & Shawnee mtn(30 min). Other attractions are the Mount Airy Resort & Casino(10 min), the Crossings clothing outlet center(15 min), Pocono raceway(25 min) and the new Kalahari indoor water park(25 min). There are also good local restaurants & grocery stores just 10-15 min from the home.

The backyard is also a great place to relax with spectacular views of the lake. The entire backyard is private for you & your guests to use and includes a BBQ grill, lounge furniture, a private beach area with fire pit and dock with private boat.

Great Backyard

  • 3 of 5

This was my second time staying at this location. The first time was over 3 years ago, and there was snow out so we did not get to experience the lovely backyard. That being said, the only thing I was truly impressed with was the backyard and luckily with this stay we had beautiful weather. I realize that this is a rental home and so it is bound to get a little run down, but my family and I were not happy with the condition of the actual home. As previously mentioned in other reviews , the slider door to the back is very difficult to open and close, and the mesh screen door is bent down the middle making it useless. Everything else in the home functions as it's supposed to, but the cleanliness was one of the biggest down falls. There were visible spider webs along many of the ceilings especially the stairwell. It's a lake house so I get that there are going to be bugs but there were markings along the walls where insects had been killed and there were not wiped off. In one of the bedrooms we pulled the bed away from the wall in order to put sheets on and there was a section along the wall and floor that had probably not been vacuumed in over 3 years.

With that being said , if you are coming for the experience of a lake house , then you'll be very happy with the scenery and lake in the backyard. Otherwise I was seriously dissapointed with the condition of the home, especially since this was my second time staying in it. If the cleaning lady did a better job and a few repairs were done around the house I would give the home 5 stars.

Musty and dirty house but great backyard

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived at the house it smelled like mold and mildew. The house definitely needs some TLC and a deep cleaning. The floors and carpets were very dirty, and the smell in the whole house was not pleasant. On the plus side, the backyard goes right up to the lake. The dock, row boat, and beach area with the fire pit were the best characteristics of the property.

Overall I had a great time with my friends and family there. Everything looks exactly how it is in the pictures. I brought my own pillows blankets and sheets. My dog had a blast in the backyard. There were a few geese droppings at the end by the water but its not the owners fault. That explains why he specifically told us all not to feed them =) so please don't feed the geese!

House Okay .. Lake Beautiful

  • 3 of 5

We stayed Friday to Monday Easter weekend 2017. There were 5 adults, a 9 year old and 3 year old. The house is situated perfectly on the lake, the backyard is amazing and the views are spectacular. The house is a little run down, the sliding screen door has a dented frame so even when the door is "shut" there is still a 3 inch gap letting bugs/critters in all night. There must be a wasp nest under some siding on the house so there were ALOT of wasps flying around, we did have a few that got inside. The glass sliding door is hard to open, an adult would need to use 2 hands .. this made is hard for the kids to come in and out. I don't know if all the rooms are like this but the middle room we stayed in (one twin and one full bed) had a A/C window unit so the bedroom window didn't open which is a shame because we would have loved to get a little airflow at night, even with the window unit fan running our bedroom was VERY VERY stuffy. There is no furniture in the room, just beds & a small nightstand so you will not be able to unpack or anything like that & living out of a suitcase makes an already cramped room even smaller. BRING YOUR OWN BEDDING, PILLOWS, COMFORTER, ETC. The blankets on our beds were old and dingy so you will definitely want to bring your own. Luckily we still had a wonderful time, mostly because we spent our days in the backyard, on the lake or at the community playground. If you are going in the summer and have no plans to stay inside I would highly recommend. If you are planning a winter vacation and want a comfortable house to lounge in I would definitely look elsewhere.

Fantastic Vacation at a Pocono Paradise

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us -- five adults and a 3-year-old -- an we had a wonderful four-day, four-night vacation here. For us, the deck was the highlight, overlooking the lake... and a great place to grill with what appeared to be a new grill. But the living room too was a nice place to settle in, a gas fireplace that warmed the room up and one of several nice HD TVs. It was a great place to sit back and relax, and the beds were quite comfortable... Overall, the sleeping arrangements -- four nice bedrooms, with a spacious master and master bath -- were more than adequate. We were very fortunate to get some great weather while there, which made the deck a gathering spot every day, for coffee, lunch and dinner. And the moon lighting up the lake at night was beautiful... Perhaps the highlight was the deer, who would visit the backyard late at night... they were close to tame. I would recommend this home highly to anyone looking for a great relaxing lakeside getaway.
