R Cottage encompasses everything that is homey
and relaxing in a fun, social environment.


We are thrilled to present R Cottage – a new homespun, rustic eatery located in the heart of downtown Washago, Ontario, bordering the beautiful region of Muskoka. Centrally located at 3385 Muskoka Street, we are a short scenic drive from Casino Rama, and within both walking and biking distance from the tranquil shores of Lake Couchiching.

R Cottage owners, Ian and Sarah Thompson (now married for 7 years), dreamed of one day having a cottage where they could socialize and feed their friends and family delicious, fresh and hearty fare. That dream is now a reality with the opening of R Cottage! From the moment you step inside, the welcoming atmosphere will instantly make you feel like you’re part of the extended Thompson clan and a long time friend dropping in for a visit.

At R Cottage Chef Ian Thompson’s culinary goal is to bring back a pioneer method of cooking: Rotisserie. Featuring fresh, free-range chicken, prime rib, hearty sandwiches, healthy soups and salads, all harvested from the freshest local bounty possible. Afterwards, nothing finishes off a meal better than R Cottage’s Signature S’mores Milkshake!

R Cottage’s inviting ambience allows you to dress and feel the same as you would at your own cottage. Sit back, relax, play some board games off the shelves, read a magazine or book, all while enjoying the sights and sounds of authentic cottage living. Ian and Sarah have designed R Cottage with their own ideas of a Sun Room, a small Family Room, Kitchen and even Outhouses!

R Cottage will specialize in wonderful, cottage-style dine-in, take out and catering options to satisfy everyone’s homemade meal cravings. As well, throughout the summer months join us for exciting live music and feature nights!
