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.

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.

Rented this house for a getaway weekend with a few girls. The house had everything we needed. The backyard was our favorite place, it's beautiful. We will definitely be back again. The owner Mark was great.
My family and I had a great time at this beautiful lakefront home. The house was up to date , very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and tranquility. I was able to bring my pups which was a big plus and they enjoyed it as well. We loved the local Village Malt Shoppe and Casino Theater. The kids also enjoyed tubing!
The owner Mark, was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and rest of the family and I will definitely return.
Great get away!
Fantastic house right on the water. Had everything we needed! Would definitely rent from Mark again!
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
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!
