The Cottage in Rimforest has long been considered one of the best local's restaurants. I've eaten there for 14 years. Their scampi Linguini has inspired Carol to go home and make a recipe of her own. (I won't say which is better.) We rarely went to the Cottage as a group, because the place was considered to be too small. Well, small it is, but the owner can seat us across two or three tables and booths, and that seems to be working.

The Cottage currently holds third place in member voting for favorite restaurants. Let's go there on third Wednesdays at 6 pm -- July 18, Aug 15, Sept 19, Oct 17, and Dec 19. Check the calendar for last-minute changes.
They are located at 26545 Highway 18, Rim Forest, CA 92378. A map is shown below. Their phone number is now 909-744-9808.

The Cottage was closed for a while. A new owner purchased it, and re-opened the restaurant exactly as it had been. It looks like the tables and some minor things were upgraded. The phone number has changed. But the original menu and high food quality have been maintained. It looks like the Cottage is destined to become a mountain tradition, remaining popular and unchanged for a century.
