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

Great spot to relax and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the home. Very comfortable for two people. Plenty of places to sit and read. Kitchen is large. Gourmet cooks will appreciate it. Location is perfect. Close to the towns of Lenox, Stockbridge, and Great Barrington. Also close to some good hiking. Check out the Ice Glen Trail.

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the cottage helped make my stay pleasant and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of clean sheets and towels. The dining table provided a space for me to hang out with my friends. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a washing machine and dryer.

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.
