The Homestead is the main lodge home of Cardella's South Bay Resort.  South Bay Resort was originally built sometime between the late 1920's and early 1930's.  The original owner was Billy Miller.  The Illig's bought the resort from Billy Miller sometime in the late 1930's to early 1940's.  After the Illigs, the resort was owned by the Moore family.  Sam "Bud" Cardella and his wife Carol, purchased South Bay Resort in the early 1970's.  The Cardellas ran the resort for almost 50 years and are the longest owners of South Bay Resort.  The King Family purchased The Homestead in 2005 from the Cardellas.  In 2013 The Homestead suffered water damage and needed to be completely rebuilt from the interior.  The Homestead opened again for business in 2018 with the help and guidance of many...including Sam "Bud" and Carol Cardella!
