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


We are thrilled to present R Cottage – a 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 was founded by the Thompson family in 2015; they dreamed of one day having a cottage where they could socialize and feed their friends and family delicious, fresh and hearty fare. That dream became a reality with the opening of R Cottage. In 2021 the Thompson clan moved to Nova Scotia to explore new adventures and the dream lives on with new owners James and Michelle.

In the kitchen, Chef Taylor and Chef Brad continue on the goal 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.

R Cottage’s inviting ambience allows you to dress and feel the same as you would at your own cottage. 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!
