About Dan Phillips

My wife and I have lived on the east coast for years and prefer car destination vacations over airplane. We have been up and down the east coast searching for great places to stay. We have 2 young children and call Delaware our home.

Dan Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Why Dan Phillips chose Tobyhanna

We were looking for a place that was within 3 hours of our home in Delaware, and we loved adventure. The Poconos was a great area that still felt undiscovered. There were so many unique and small little towns that speckled the area and we loved exploring them all. We loved to be on water so we could paddle and fish and just enjoy the outdoors. After doing a lot of looking we found this house on Lake Carobeth back in 2004 and set it up to be a vacation destination that our friends and family would love. The rest is history.

What makes this house unique

The Pink house sits high above the lake yet close enough that you feel so close to it. The sun hits the deck in the morning and it is the greatest place to wake up and have coffee and plan your day,

Both downstairs bedrooms have small little deck areas and direct views to the lake. When the sun comes up it just draws you to want to get out on the lake. That's why we provide rowboats and canoes so anyone can start their day off with an envigorating paddle. At the end of the day one can enjoy the indoor jacuzzi tub to relax and unwind.

Great Lakefront Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. Great location, Views are outstanding from the deck and dock.

House had everything we needed and outdoors fire pit was a blast. Several boats to play around with. Previous complainer must be delusional.

The house is in a great location on the lake but the whole downstairs smelled very musty and moldy.

  • 3 of 5

The lake is super nice and the house location is great being right on the lake but the house itself was just ok.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you loved the location as much as we do. We take feedback seriously so I appreciate your concern about the musty smell. Unfortunately, It can happen and we have put steps in place to control it. Because we are right on the lake and the house sits on a concrete slab, the house can feel humid after days of heavy rains until you run the dehumidifier. We keep it in the bedroom downstairs. it removes the excess moisture in the air. I know you guys arrived after it rained for 3 days and the house was closed up until you arrived. Next time you need anything just give me a call and I could have helped you though it. We once had a guest go all week without a TV until his last day when he called me. It turns out he was just using the wrong remote. I'm just a quick text away to help. Thanks again .

We came up for a family reunion of sorts, and everyone came from different directions.

When we walked in we were blown away. The house had a fantastic setup we could all sit together or if kids wanted to play games they could gather in the other room.

We had a warm day for February and got out on the grill and cooked. The views are awesome.

The house had everything we needed and it was a blast makeing a fire in the outdoor firepit.

The deer come right up to us to visit. We are already planning out next stay.
