  • We will be back!


    This was our second stay in Cabin 9 at Ela Shores and we will be back again! The cabins are conveniently located, very clean and well appointed. We love the parking options and that is room for our trailer. The onsite staff is so helpful and friendly. Really can’t ask for a better place.

  • Perfect


    This makes the third time I've stayed at these cabins. Each time has been perfect. No matter which one I stay in they are clean and comfortable. It's a lot better than any motel.

    The cabin was so clean and very cozy. Perfect for a couple with a 1 year old. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again!
