After Cain Irene, the White Cottage snack bar had to be rebuilt and the improvement is extra special. You can have everything from ice cream to Friday night lobsters. Go out back to sit at tables and benches that are connected and swing with a view of the river below

80 degrees yesterday. Granddaughters and I ordered our food and then picked out a table in the back by the river.Kids love the "swinging" table and chairs Great onion rings, hamburger and hotdogs. After lunch kids walked through the water. A nice spot to relax and enjoy the colors!

They grilled hot dogs for us. Burgers were really good. Great atmosphere along a river. Really nice little side of the road place to stop at on your journey.

On my way from Boston to Middlebury, VT., I stopped here for a quick lunch. For the first time in about 20 years I had a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich (The girl at the counter didn't understand what I meant until I said BLT!) and it was really delicious. They ask what kind of bread you'd like, toasted or... More

This place may be O.K. as a dairy bar, but lunch for 4 was tasteless and pricey. Nice location and well kept grounds.

Our wholebellies had freezer burn, were over breaded and didn't taste like anything. The hamburger was raw in the middle and cold prefrozen fries. The hot dog was the worst tasting hot dog that I had ever had. Maybe a pit stop for icecream but nothing else is worth it.

In a way the White Cottage ought to be called "The New England Experience" or something similar (except that that would sound like a theme park) -- clams, both strips and full-bellied, scallops, other seafood, burgers, onion rings that are so fine that they could lead to an outbreak of world peace, ice cream -- and all of that, served...

Someone gave us a gift certificate for White Cottage so we decided to cash it in. Got the onion rings, chicken fingers, fries and drinks. Food was out in no time. Food was hot.
