About Rachel O'Rourke

I'm a chef that moved from the metropolitan area in 1996. I owned a B&B in Gt. Barrington for 10 years. Food is my passion and I would be glad to cook for you at dinner time with previous arrangements. I have been cooking professionally 26 years. First in NYC and then at Canyon Ranch until buying a B&B

Rachel O'Rourke purchased this cottage in 1998

Fabulous Cabin in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! The house is situated on a scenic property with a fire pit, picnic table, tree perch, and so much more. The chef's kitchen is fully outfitted with everything you might need. Just a few miles to town (Great Barrington), hiking and other attractions - the location is perfect.

Our host was responsive and wonderful. Thank you!!

First rate experience.

Property beautifully furnished and lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, and we'd come back again. Wish there was a powder room on first floor, but we managed.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

The building is beautiful, and really nicely decorated. The grounds are also idyllic and well-maintained.

The place is not 100% silent, if you're looking for complete quiet. During the daytime there is the occasional swoosh of a car driving past on the nearby road. It sounds a bit like waves crashing on a distant beach while you're rocking gently on the hammock in the back yard. Given the house's proximity to the major autoroutes, it's still quieter than you would expect because the house is set back from the road, and slightly lower than the surrounding ground.

We had to check out at exactly 11am because the cleaning staff showed up with incredible punctuality.

The grounds have some magnificant, enormous old trees. The gardens are beautiful, and there's a lovely grassy lawn.

The kitchen is easy to use, and there are two rooms for lounging, plus a nice dining room table to sit at within earshot of the open plan kitchen.

Good times in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Berkshires and so glad I came across Rachel's house. It is bigger than it looks, very comfortable with great character and charm. We will definitely consider staying there again if we make back to the area again. I would highly recommend this house.

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The carriage house was just as pictured - charming, spotless and tastefully decorated. Loved the large well-appointed kitchen and the sitting room with gas stove that was appreciated on a chilly, rainy day. Comfy beds and bedding. The yard was cute and private and we enjoyed using the chiminea. Rachel our host made sure we got the lay of the land which was also appreciated.

Lovely Getaway

The cottage is comfy, charming and well-appointed, and is located just outside several quaint towns. We appreciated the opportunity to hang out with our dog. Great stay and highly recommended!
