We enjoyed lobster rolls and ice cream, while enjoying the view of the river. The swings behind the building were a nice place to enjoy the evening weather. Outside tables are dog friendly.

We have driven by this establishment a number of times and bypassed it thinking - fried prepackaged yuk!!! Were we wrong! After a hot sticky morning geocaching we were tired, thirsty and famished. The White Cottage was at the base of one of our caches...More
