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.

Worked out for us
We rented two homes on the same estate as The Playhouse so that our families could be in walking distance of each other. I didn’t stay in the houses, but I heard good things! :)
HomeAway/VRBO did not send the necessary information and details for check in which the homeowner had provided to them. Loved the home! Fully equipped home! Excellent place to gather for a group!
Terrific house in a beautiful location. Four bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, means everyone can have comfort and privacy. The spacious living room, open kitchen and dining room all flow together and amount to a large, open space ideal for gatherings. Would definitely stay again.
Very accomodating owner
We were very pleased with everything associated with this property. We needed to find a place that would be good for getting ready for our daughter's wedding and also hosting family coming from out of town. It was very roomy, clean, close to wedding venue and had everything we could possibly want to make our wedding celebration easy! The best part was the owner being so accommodating with our arrival and departure times. He allowed us to have an early checkin and late checkout without charging us extra! We highly recommend this property!!!
Super place to stay, everything you can think of is there for you.
A great stay
We were a group of friends staying for a few days. The house has a very convenient layout with a large living/kitchen/dining area that gives plenty of room for socializing, and separated bedrooms each with their own bathroom allowing for personal space. All necessities were provided, and there were also extras such as board games, fishing poles, use of a boat and kayak, etc. The outdoor porch has lots of seating and gives another good place for socializing. The house is well-located; it is a short walk down to the lake, and a short drive to nearby towns/attractions. Good recommendations for restaurants and attractions in the area were provided by the owner.
We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend the property to others.
