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.

Perfect for family get together
We were in town for a family wedding and were able to enjoy staying with 4 different couples, 1 couple with 2 children comfortably at Howard’s place. Getting ready for the wedding was seamless as we all had our own full bath in our room. Morning coffee, evening cocktails...no problem. There was always room for everyone to cozy up and enjoy quality time with one another. The layout of the house is perfect and the hot tub is a lovely bonus.
I would definitely recommend this property.
Very nice stay!
Very nice set up for a bigger group! Howard was very nice. He came over when we arrived and said hi, had wine for us! The grounds are very pretty, close to town. Great for people who love to run and explore.
We are giving it a five star because the accommodations are awesome and every amenity we could think of was available. We stayed with are three adult children and their spouses. One disappointment was the new fire pit was not working and it was a perfect cool night to enjoy it. Also we we're less than impressed with the overall house keeping upon our arrival. That being said it is a great house and we would highly recommend it.
Back in the Berkshires
This was our third time staying at one of Howard's properties and this ranch style house was perfect for our crew of 3 adults, 4 teenagers, and 2 dogs. Open floor plan with plenty of room for all gave everyone a chance to spread out and still be together. Each bedroom had its own bathroom and its own television. After a long day of running around, the massaging beds felt good. Side deck is a great place to kick back and relax. Kids loved the hot tub and fire pit. Location is great! Easy access to everything in the Berkshires. We went north to Pittsfield and south to New Marlboro without any issues. Property Manager Marybeth was easy to get a hold of for questions and Howard is always quick to respond to emails. We've looked all over the Berkshires for a place with lots of room AND allows pets, and Howard's homes in Fox Hollow are the best!
Luxury house with plenty of room for 8 woman.
The house was beautiful ,clean and comfortable. There were 8 women and enough beds for all. We loved the porch and the fire pit. The area was quiet and private but had many places to visit. We enjoyed the wine Howard left for us. We highly recommend this house.
wonderful stay at Fox Hollow Estate Ranch
Celebrated an 80th birthday party. Plenty of room to park. The wonderful porch had the hot tub right on it and a great fire pit. All of us were together and it was a perfect place for all of us to gather. Every bedroom had its own bath. Very clean and comfortable. Had all that we needed. The owners and their managers who oversee the property were immediately available and very helpful when we needed them.. We were so lucky to have find this fabulous space..
