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 2013

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 one of two single family 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.

Amazing Weekend in the Berkshires

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here for a long weekend in early February and had a fabulous time. We were three adults and three kids (ages 10,11, & 16) with plenty of room and things to do. The pool table was a hit! The fully finished basement was perfect for Grandpa, with its own television, kitchenette, and bedroom/bath, to escape to when he needed some peace and quiet. The beds were super comfy and the house was extremely well kept. Kitchen, including the fridge, was stocked and we had filtered water on demand. The location of the house was perfect. Not a long drive to Ski Butternut, for tubing, or any of the restaurants we visited. Loved watching the Pats win the Super Bowl on the big 60+ inch TV! We would absolutely recommend this home to anyone and would rent again. Thank you so much!

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us as we spent a weekend in the Berkshires celebrating Christmas! The house was comfortable and plenty large enough for our group of 7 adults and 4 children. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace, playing with the kids in the lower level, the very accommodating kitchen that allowed us to cook together and enjoy meals together and even the Christmas tree so we could gather around to open our gifts! The added bonus of snow made it look like a winter wonderland outside! Thanks again!

Great get away in the heart of the Berkshires

Enjoyed a nice fall weekend with a group of friends. Howard was excellent in providing directions and resources. We were thrilled with the space of the house and the amenities. Would definitely book here again in the future.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, LOVELY SETTING

  • 5 of 5

The house looked small from the outside but there is plenty of room on the inside. Lots of rooms to spread out. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you need for cooking, eating, and clean up. It's nice to go to a place where there is actually enough TP, paper towels, cleaning supplies, soap and a few essential pantry products so you don't have to run out and purchase these when you arrive. Beds were very comfortable and with three floor, plenty of space to spread out and relax. Cooking was easy with a very well-equipped kitchen and nice appliances. The home is attractively decorated with many of the owners antiques and artwork. There are games, soccer balls, and other indoor and outdoor activity items . We were only there for a weekend and could not take advantage of all the activities that were available at the location. The owner has made this house a welcome retreat that feels like home. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Great House for Parties of Eight or Less

  • 3 of 5

We booked the house for a 70th birthday celebration. Although the listing indicate a minimum of 2 nights, the owner required us to take it for 3 nights. As advertised, the kitchen was well-appointed. The central island made it easy to cook and serve meals. The dining room table seats 8 people. The laundry was convenient. The Great Room really was great. The weekend was cool and rainy so the pool table was very popular with everyone. Also, as stated in the listing, there were 2 televisions in the Great Room. We weren't there to watch television, but it provided a diversion for the kids. Had the weather been better, we would have been able to take advantage of the many outdoor activities-the hot tub, the deck, the lake and all it had to offer. It was a wonderful spot.

The downside was the lack of bedrooms. When we booked the house, the listing stated that there were 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. In actuality, there were 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and a study with a trundle bed in it. With the trundle bed open, it was very crowded, particularly since there were two large plastic storage tubs taking up quite a bit of the space. The listing indicated that there was a fifth bedroom and a third bath in the lower level. Unfortunately, there was no lower level. There was evidence of a construction project (plywood panels covering the future windows) but no 5th bedroom or 3rd bathroom. As indicated, there are two sleep sofas in the great room; however, to use them would require moving furniture. Also, be advised, the great room is the only gathering place in the house so whomever sleeps there would have to stay awake until everyone else went to bed and get up as soon as anyone got up in the morning. We were short of space and embarrassed that we couldn't accommodate the people we invited to our celebration. One couple ended up paying for a room at the Red Lion Inn for the weekend. To his credit, when I called the owner to indicate that we had a problem with the space that was advertised and what we actually found at the house, he paid for a room at the Black Swan Inn that we were able to use. The listing now states that there are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and that the 5th bedroom/lower level will be available after 6/15. We left on 6/13 and the room was a construction site. This is great spot but only comfortable for parties of 8 or less until the construction is completed.

Owner's Response: The review is basically accurate. Expected completion date of lower level is 8/1/2016. We will have sleeping capacity for 14.

Morning, noon and night you can fine tune your Berkshire vacation to whatever rocks your boat. In one week you will not be able to do it all. Below is a list of some of our favorites. The theatres such as the Berkshire Theatre Group (3), Barrington Stage theatres (2), Williamstown Theatre Festival (2) and Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center year after year deliver and just keep getting better. Shakespeare and Company is a must see (not just Shakespeare - 4). Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival has a huge seasonal assortment of traditional ballet to unreal hip-hop. Tanglewood features the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Tanglewood Symphony Orchestra, various chorale groups, guest performances by all genres of musicians, popular concerts by guest performers such as James Taylor. Tanglewood On Parade is my favorite night of the season. There are many afternoon performances on most schedules. The Norman Rockwell, The Clark and the Berkshire museums are worth visiting every season. Try to leave a little time for R&R and enjoy the stars and hot tub on the deck to top off a great day.
