The Story of

The Ponds at Foxhollow

On the place of Mr. George Westinghouse, in Lenox, his groundskeeper was to recall, “I made 100 acres of lawn … it was the kind we liked in England – a velvet plain stretching to the horizon, unbroken, as far as possible, by paths, driveways shrubs, with perhaps only an occasional magnificent tree – an oak, an elm, or a great sycamore on it.

On the eastern brow of that velvet plain, commanding a view of Laurel Lake below and the Berkshire barrier below, stood ERSKINE PARK. Guarded by sentinel elms, its white turrets create the image of a wooden CAMELOT, a New England castle, a place of magical beauty.

It was this late 19th century cottage that George Westinghouse, inventor and industrialist, built for his wife, Marguerite, the pleasures of which they were to share for the fleeting months of Berkshire summers until their deaths without heir in 1914, three months apart.

Erskine Park was razed in 1919 by its new owners to build a new cottage, Holmwood. In 1939, Mrs. Vanderbuilt sold Holmwood to two ladies who renamed the property FOXHOLLOW, where they started and operated a girls school for 40 years.   The property was sold again in 1977, which then saw the development of The Ponds at Foxhollow. The current Ponds at Foxhollow Clubhouse was built in 1989.
