Tons of variety - food, decor, clothing, jewelry and gifts. Very hospitable and helpful staff. Really neat lake house decor and household items. Highly recommend this stop.

Wow, A friend and I have been walking to Cottagewood General Store for years. It's a step back in time in a beautiful community. It is a taste of what an old General Store used to be. We have breakfast but it has so much more to offer. Check out the website for all the details and events.

We topped off our burgers with an ice cream cone from the store and it was awesome. We've recommended the place to others and will be attending the final event this... More

We have visited this store on several occasions. What a fun and unique stop. Whether it's a frappachino and muffin for breakfast or one of their unique lunches (salad in a jar), it's a fun place.. We noticed several children stopping for an ice cream cone or milk shake after school. This store is a delightful glimpse into the past... More
