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

Why Rachel O'Rourke chose Berkshires

The house is very centrally located and convenient to down town Great Barrington and everything it has to offer including some wonderful restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

There are some wonderful hikes very near the cottage and Butternut Ski Resort which is directly across the street has a panoramic view of the hills.

Adorable Delight! We will return!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this immaculate home. Small--yet bright and cheery! So well located--yet lots of privacy in the woods! Clean, sparse--yet warm & friendly. Retro details-- yet new appliances and an amazing kitchen. Plus our dog can't wait to return with us again....Such a happy little spot.

great place for a get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 day holiday get away at this chic country cottage. Loved the chef's kitchen and cozy places to read, relax, listen to holiday music. Enjoyed a beautiful hike around Benedict Pond nearby! Would highly recommend this spot!

A Charming Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming cottage in a lovely section of the Berkshires. The area is beautiful and we were lucky enough to stay during the peak colors. Terrific food, interesting shops, convenient walking paths and you are surrounded by the natural beauty of the area. Rachel, the owner, went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable at her "little piece of heaven". Treat yourself to a pleasant visit during any season.

Perfect weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Carriage House. Rachel was lovely to deal with and very helpful in showing us the details of the house. The house is warm and comfortable. There were only two of us (and our dog), but would be perfect for a family of four. We didn't make use of the kitchen, but it seem to have everything you would need. We enjoyed relaxing in the yard with a nice bottle of wine from the vineyard down the road. There's an adorable outdoor fireplace area. The location is perfect - right in between Stockbridge and Great Barrington. We've rented several homes in the Berkshires in the past couple of years, this was definitely one of our favorites.
