A modern general store for
old-fashioned fun

With an eclectic mix of food, shopping and events, Jack & Stella is a modern take on the old General Store that has quickly become a new Bala landmark. (Old-timers will remember when our site was actually an old-timey General Store!)

We’re that place where you want to keep popping by to liven up your weekend, and can’t wait to bring a friend. That special place where your kids always want to go and will fondly remember the rest of their lives. We’re the place where friends will meet on a Saturday afternoon by boat or girlfriends will save the date for that special getaway weekend.

Our purpose and our mission: Create a lively community hub, each and every summer day, that adds fun, variety and deliciousness to your cottage experience. We can’t wait to see you there!

The Cafe

Enjoy your summer days sitting on our quaint porch or out back on the dock with a view of Lake Muskoka. We have something for everyone from top of the line coffee, delicous nibbles, and a pint with your name on it. We've truly got it all!

The Pantry

Browse our lovingly curated collection of premium kitchen staples, unique condiments and tasty snacks. Not to mention everything you need for an Italian night in with amazing pizza and pasta items from Terroni!

Inspired Goods

Customers say they could spend hours browsing the beautiful decor finds in our shop...and they do! We have everything from kitchenware to skincare, bedding and beyond!

Stella's Closet

Our clothing shop is our newest expansion, right next door to the café, where you'll find favourite brands like Velvet, Pokoloko and Magic Linen.

Georgie's Doughnuts

The little pink shack is everyone's favourite spot for a summer treat. Whether you're 6 or 60, you'll love our fresh doughnuts!
