my family and I have gone to the Inlet area for over 40 years - this was the first time we didn't stay with family and ventured out on our own. The Nelsons cottage has always been a staple that we passed on our way in to town. What a true treasure it was- the week we arrived the place... More

Our family had such a wonderful time in the Adirondacks at The Nelson's Cottages. From kayaking to table tennis, we could not stop laughing and having a great time. They also have grills available to use which made family picnics convenient.

My family has been vacationing in Inlet and staying at Nelsons for over 30 years and always have an enjoyable time. Watching the sunsets over 4th lake are breathtaking. The cottages are cozy and comfortable. It's only a short walk into town for shops and restaurants. This year, my husband and I brought our 3 month old son for the... More

My family has been coming to Nelson's for well over 20 years, we are a large group and take up the majority of the cabins. This is our home away from home for a week every July and our entire family LOVES it. Julie is awesome, she's super accommodating and such a hard worker. The grounds are well maintained and... More

The Nelson's have accommodated 3 generations of the Dober family! Some of my best memories are when I was camping at the Nelson's! There's something to be said for simple family fun. The Nelson's Cottages have everything you need, a park for the family, ping pong, water front access with Kayaks, a great dock, a fire pit for evening s'mores... More

After reading good reviews about Nelson's Cottages, I thought we would give it a try and even keep Nelson's in mind for a possible week in the summer possibly for more than one cabin. I spoke to the owner on Thursday and reserved a cabin for my husband and I for Saturday, two days later. I gave her my full... More

The cottages are small but adequate. No extras, but we didn't expect there to be. It is what it says, a cabin in the Adirondacks. Campfire at night, other campers were friendly, Clean. I didn't see the staff, but they were nice on the phone. Coffee was available for a few hours in the morning, but if you were not... More

We stayed at Nelson's Cottages for only one night, but we enjoyed the time we had there. The owners are very nice and the cottage was clean. It is an easy and pleasant walk into town. We will definitely return.
