About Howard Eisler

My wife and I have been coming to the Berkshires for over 35 years. I've done some real estate, buy sell and renovate in NY Metro, Killington, VT and the Berkshires. We used to own at Lakeside Condo's for about 10 years on the same Fox Hollow estate before we went into the Ski Lodge business in Killington, VT. Now we've retired to Florida for about 7mos. a year and just had to come back to the Berkshires for the other 5 mos. We have another place in Lenox.

Howard Eisler purchased this house in 2014

Why Howard Eisler chose Lenox

This property was just far to good. Westinghouse built the first electric house in SW Massachusetts less than a 1000 feet away. Vanderbilt bought it and built a bunch of buildings on the property for the private use of his family.. Overlooking Laurel Lake from the hill top are by far some of the best views in the area. When you talk about Berkshire locations this is about the best. Present day facilities on the premises that we have access to (no extra charges) include indoor and outdoor pools, club house, gym, tennis courts and of course 1000 feet of Lake front on Laurel Lake ready for fishing, canoeing and swimming with our own supplied boats and rafts.

What makes this house unique

This is the only single family ranch unattached private home on the 220 acre Fox Hollow Estate that has ever been offered for short term rentals. This unique piece of real estate is awesome. As you take a short walk to the adjoining gardens at the Edith Wharton estate either on the horse back riding trails or by the lake route you will feel the draw that brought the Tycoons to this property. Centrally located to all Berkshire activities and wow what a vacation we have in store for you.

A Good House

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and spacious. The large living room and kitchen made for a great social area and the fire pit and hot tub were fantastic and easy to use.

Great getaway, but near so much!

  • 4 of 5

The house was well laid out for multiple family group - with bedrooms tucked away in each corner of the house. A definite plus that every bedroom has its own bathroom! The house was clean and ready for our arrival.

The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, from enough pots and pans to dishes, placemats and napkins. The fact that the house was well stocked, with everything from dishwater detergent and paper towels, was greatly appreciated.

Even though it was the start of winter, we enjoyed using the hottub - which is conveniently next to the house. So nice to relax in after a day of skiing!

Howard was responsive during the rental process - answering questions quickly. We would definitely come back to this house if we are vacationing in the area.

Owner's Response: Fabulous 5 star written rating which we hope everybody reads. We are thrilled how much you enjoyed the house, facilities and location but only 4 stars which in this day and age actually hurts.

The property was lovely for a big group. It was clean with lots of places to sleep!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for a weekend getaway with a large group. The property was clean and stocked with all the things you might need to cook and be comfortable. The property manager was attentive and assisted us by explaining heat, fireplace, fire pit, and hot tub as soon as we arrived. There were lots of games at the house and plenty of activities on the property to enjoy. The location is close to several towns, plenty of stores for provisions, and many of the Berkshires attractions. You won’t need to go far for a hike or a swim. I was particularly impressed by the fact that house felt totally remote even though it was located in developed community. It really was like having a cabin the woods all to ourselves! Thank you again, Howard, for a great stay!!

Great for girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

8 girls in their 40s stayed here two nights. We loved our stay. The house was clean and we loved all the twin beds and bathrooms. We used the outdoor fire pit and jacuzzi. The living room was large enough to hang out and chat. It felt like we were in the country but only a few miles to the Cranwell Spa and the towns of Lenox and Lee. Highly recommend!

Awesome space for a family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 adults really loved Fox Hollow. We were in town for a wedding -- the house was very close to all three venues; it is spacious, comfortable, and has lots of bed space. (Be aware that there are beds for 9; there are also sleeper sofas in the family room.) The 4 bathrooms and one half-bath came in handy as we got ready for the wedding, and when we had down time, we sprawled on the big couches and watched TV, took a soak in the hot tub, or walked down to the lake. Howard is an accommodating host; the house was well-stocked with basics, linens and towels were provided; and the caretaker obligingly let us in early. This large house provided us with us places to hang out together and lots of privacy as well. Five stars!
