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 Berkshires

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.

Great Place. Has all tht you need in the absolute perfect location to access Lenox and Lee.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent facility. Howard, Marybeth and Wade were perfect hosts and House Managers. Everything we needed was provided for and the house was just in the most perfect Berkshire location to easily go to Lenox, Williamstown, Lee, Stockbridge and Great Barrington.

We never took advantage of the lake but there were plenty of toys provided if you are so inclined. The back deck complete with fire pit and hot tub was very popular at night. All of the bedrooms had an en suite bath and the living room easily fit our group of 8 when it rained as did the dining room. All in all it was perfect and we most definitely will be back.

Memorial Day Weekend Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property for groups or large families. There are 4 bedrooms; one on each corner - each with its own full bath. The common area and kitchen in the center of the house makes for a great gathering place to play cards or watch a movie. The outdoor deck area had lots of space for guests and comfortable furniture for seating 9, more if needed. We hosted two dinners; one with about 20 people - there was plenty of space. Everything worked and the place was in very good condition. This was my first experience using a vacation rental service. I did not get the instructions for entering the property so I have to call the owner. He was great and got me squared away. I would rent this place again!

Ideal for a reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to reconnect with old friends. The floor plan of this house was perfect for our getaway for 8 college friends. Each of the 4 rooms had it's own full bathroom (and a half bath common bath). The 4 corners being bedrooms and the center being the common area was just ideal . The "bob-o-matic" twin beds were very comfy. Surprisingly, the hot water heater was able to handle 8 ladies all taking showers in the morning, back to back! There were some technical issues w the tv's (living room & 2 bedrooms) but we didn't stress since we were so busy socializing, tv was less important. Hot tub and fire pit were wonderful on the cool evenings. Lastly, we enjoyed walking the grounds (it was too early for lake activities). We all want to make this a yearly occurrence. Note: Howard is very pleasant and responsive. We rented his other house last year but this one suited us better. But both houses were very nicely equipped with everything you'd need, including wine :-)

Great house for a group

  • 5 of 5

We (6 women)!enjoyed our stay here. Comfortable rooms and beds, good heat and well insulated (temps were in the single digits outside). the living room/kitchen/dining room were very comfortable and conducive to hanging out. Kitchen was well stocked (except no coffee grinder). Location can't be beat for beauty and convenience.

Ladies only get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The Fox Hollow Estate Ranch was perfect for our annual, "Ladies Only Get-A-Way!" This event is an opportunity to catch up with the women in our family, unplug and unwind. The place is laid out well and we loved the large kitchen counter and stools were we hung out 80% of the time. The beds were comfortable, all four rooms had private ensuites, the gas fireplace added a warm glow and the amenities were perfect. This place was very well equipped and communication from the owner was excellent.

During our weekend we visited the Norman Rockwell museum which is right down the road and made a stop in Lenox for lunch and shopping. The Lee outlets were the last stop on the way home. So much to do, even in winter. Next time, we will be checking out the hot tub as well! Thanks for providing such a comfortable and well equipped place.

An easy breezy experience from start to end. Howard the owner of the home was kind and gracious in accommodating our large family needs. The home is beautiful and peaceful. Comes with everything you could possibly need. The homes single level and open layout is ideal for little ones. Easy to keep you're eye on them and no stairs to worry about. This a relaxing, comfortable and luxe home located near all the restaurants and shop of Lenox, MA. We had a wonderful time and truly grateful that Howard and Sandy were easy and kind hosts! Thank you!
