The best place for Pizza or Burgers and Sandwhiches. Good food for a great price! Bring your appetite, the locals up here love It! Only bummer is no breakfast anymore.

On a busy Saturday night, during the Labor Day Weekend, we decided to go to The Cottage for some Italian food. We got a table right when we walked in, but soon after they got swamped and the kitchen was already trying to catch up to a big order. From the time we ordered and then got our starter salads...

I've now been to the Cottage three times in the last month or so and have not been close to disappointed! At first glance, the place is . . . let's call it rustic. But don't let that fool you. The food here is legit! So after a day of skiing, or chopping wood or whatever you choose to do... More

Yum, I love getting takeout food from the Cottage on a Sunday night ( I work Thusday through Sunday.) their pizza is terrific, the chicken piccata with real mashed potatoes and fresh veggies is delicious! Salads are fresh, so is the bread, and it's never-ending when you eat in the restaurant, if you're so inclined.

We made a special trip to eat at this restaurant, as it had a great write up in the paper a few months ago. I have to say the food was top notch. Best pizza and antipasto salad that we have had in a long time! I reason that I only gave it a 3 star rating was because of... More

All of the food ordered for our table was excellent, but the garlic knots were amazing! Very addictive! YUM! It is such a huge portion, not sure what you'd do if there are only a couple at the table. All portions are very large so can be shared for dining on a budget. Our waitress (Kali) was great! Fun loving... More

I enjoyed this place with my husband on a Saturday afternoon. Great service, clean and good food. Pizza had nice crust baked perfectly and the right amount of cheese and toppings. Many refills of iced tea. Near attractions, so conveniently located.
