Update: As of December 2017, the General Store has ceased operation. The food situation seems to be ever evolving, so reach out to us prior to visiting and we can give you the most recent updates. Or, continue to follow along on the blog, we will most definitely post updates as they happen.
A Staple in Our Community
Rolling into Carlton Landing and taking in the views will lead you to our beloved Carlton Landing General Store. Located across from the Community Garden on Boulevard and next to the Meeting House, our friend, Brad Campbell has set up a wonderful place to mix and mingle over coffee. Besides the morning and lunch fare, you can pick up a few things you may have forgotten.
Breakfast and Lunch Fare
For breakfast at the Carlton Landing General Store, you can always count on some fantastic homemade cinnamon rolls or homemade biscuits with gravy, or both! Grab some with some fresh coffee or soda pop of your choice. Brad’s team is quick and efficient to get you back to the family cottage or to the boat. We love hanging around and visiting with our neighbors. The kids eat quick, grab their bikes and the full day of play begins.
Save a meal for the cheeseburger! It’s a must have and the best around the county. Choose fries, chips or a side salad to make it a complete meal. If burgers aren’t your bag, choose the Gyro, Philly Cheese Steak or the Chicken Tacos. You can dial up a salad or ask Miss Dyane or Mr. Malcolm if they can go off the menu to satisfy your request, they always aim to please.
If you don’t see it, ask.
Usually, there are things that you don’t see in the store, but they do indeed have. Propane seems to be the big one. If you are planning to grill at your Cottage this weekend, make sure the propane is in shape. If not, The Carlton Landing General Store is a propane dealer and can get you fixed up in a jiffy. Another item we are always in need of is ice. There are no self-serve ice machines close by and The General Store has all you could possibly need for the beer cooler or cozy fall cocktail.
Brad and the team at The Carlton Landing General Store are willing to stock up your cottage prior to your arrival to allow you to maximize the time spend around town. Make sure you have coffee. Each rental cottage has a Keurig, but you need your own k-cups. Plan your meals ahead, come up with a shopping list and shoot it over to Brad, they will take it from there. When you arrive, the groceries will be put in the appropriate places and ready to go. We have not used this service, but have heard great things. Why make it hard on yourself?
Need a Lift Around Town?
No, Uber does not service our little town, but at The Carlton Landing General Store you can rent some golf cart wheels to make the trips for forgotten sunscreen at the Cottage a much shorter journey. On any given night, residents and guests will be seen taking their golf carts for a ride. Usually, sunset with a glass of wine is the game of choice. The Carlton Landing General Store will take reservations or just stop by for to see what carts are available.
