Twice named one of the top 150 burger joints in the US and the only one in Vermont, White Cottage is Open early May to Columbus Day. We are a traditional dairy bar and lots more! Located one mile west of town on Rt 4, we serve char broiled burgers, homemade onion rings, great sandwiches, fresh whole belly clams, Maine lobster salad rolls, fresh crisp salads and 30 flavors of ice cream. Our customers also enjoy steamed Maine lobster dinners on the weekends in the summer. Sit outside at one of our many picnic tables overlooking the Ottauquechee River (Moms bring the towels and bathing suits -the kids are going in!) At White Cottage, we've got something for everyone! Phone orders always welcome. We are fully handicapped accessible.

Great find

This is our go-to place when we don't feel like cooking in the summer. Wish it were open all year. Great for burgers, fish and chips and ice creams. It's fun to eat outside in the gondola seats overlooking the river.

We love stopping at the white cottage snack bar on our frequent trips across new england. They have a great location next to the river with picnic tables outside right next to the water. The food is what you'd expect for a burger shack. Reasonably priced, cooked to order. It makes for a great rest stop and a friendly place... More

I have been going to The White Cottage for a number of summers. It is clean, the food is great, service with a smile, and a great family atmosphere. I dare say, I will go here over a dozen times this season.

I love this place and miss it when it's closed in the Winter. Everything from the homemade soups to the burgers are very good and we enjoy stopping here on the way to our condo in Killington. The owner should open something year round. Our whole family loves it and that's a hard thing to make happen! Try the burgers,... More

Perfect for a summer evening. Tons of delicious ice cream choices. Take your ice cream outside and sit in one of the swings or dip your feet in the water. Old fashioned, perfect fun.

Great for burgers, lobster rolls, clam strips, ice cream, you name it. On a nice summer evening the tables along the river are a very enjoyable spot to enjoy your meal.

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

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.
