Cottages


These historic stone cottages on the west bank of Lake Ella were originally built as a lakeside motel back in the 1920's. Today they house small locally owned shops and businesses. Lake Ella flooded the cottages back in August 2008, when Tropical Storm Faye dropped a huge amount of rainfall in a very short period of time. The businesses have now recovered.

Impressive that businesses were up and running and looking so established in such a short period of time

Definitely much more fun shopping here than a mall!
