There’s a paradox being here at Lakewood Lodge, one we especially love. That is, you have this feeling of remoteness while you have proximity to nearly every shopping possibility you desire.
Just minutes from Lakewood Lodge are all the quality markets you would ever need to prepare even the most sumptuous gourmet feast.
A large, exceptionally well-stocked Ingles grocery store is located in nearby Cashiers. You’ll find all the basic supplies, plus Bakery, Deli, Video and Pharmacy departments. For your convenience, a cost-saving Ingles Advantage tag is attached to your Lakewood Lodge keychain.
You’ll want to browse through Cashiers’ small specialty markets for Gourmet Food items, fresh seasonal Fruits & Vegetables, Prepared Foods, and Flowers...we even have a Deli that sells fine Wines and designer Beers.
