Had a pleasant 2 night stay in one of the motel unit cottages which were all very cute, not fancy and quite tiny. It was wonderful to be close to great paddling without much driving. Also has good access to the TOBIE trail for walking, cycling, etc. We were able to walk into town for a great dinner at the... More

The Nelson's were most accomodating in helping find a cottage on short notice. Although a short stay it was very nice, pleasant and expect to return again in the future. Thank you again for your help on a busy holiday weekend.

It find it to be a catch 22 when reviewing things in the Adirondacks. I want them to be my best kept secrets, but at the same time I want my favorite places to thrive. Nelson's Cottages is one of those places. This is mine and my wife's second visit to Nelson's because they were absolutely perfect last time. This... More

Me and mydaughter had been planning our vacation together for months. When we were checking on our reservations we had made months earlier we found that the hotel had double booked and since we were only staying three nights and the other was for a week we were out. I had searched for days trying to find a new place... More

My family and I stayed at Nelson's two weeks ago and really enjoyed the property. Although our cottage was cozy ( for 2 adults and 2 teens), the Nelson family made us feel at home. The cottage was very clean and had a nice heater for the one cool evening during our stay. Accessibility to 4th Lake was wonderful; our... More

I just returned from a week in the Adirondacks & even with rainy weather, it was great. I have stayed at Nelson's many times in the past & wouldn't even consider trying anywhere else. They pay attention to all details & the cottages are meticulously clean. Linda, Ken & Julie are friendly & have all sorts of information right at... More

At the spur of the moment we decided to take a trip to the Adirondacks and lucky for us Nelson's had 1 cottage left! The cabins were neat and clean, grounds well manicured with plenty of flowers. Beach area well kept with perfect views and a firepit for night bonfires. Gas or charcoal grills available for use. Owners directly on... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Nelsons Cottages, just a short walk into the quaint little town of Inlet. This property has a dozen small cottages, and a few housekeeping cabins. We stayed in of the the smaller ones, fit for 2. The cabin and property were clean and well maintained. The price was comparable to other cabins and motels... More

What a great find. We have been by numerous times in our travels to the Adirondacks, but this year we were looking for a quick couple of nights away instead of our usual week because of a busy summer. We picked the right one. What a comfortable relaxing atmosphere. Thank you Ken,Linda and Julie we will definitely be back. The... More

I visited recently with my three young girls and stayed in the Florida Cottage. Upon arrival, the accommodations were found to be very clean and hospitable. The Nelsons themselves proved to be wonderfully engaging and welcoming hosts. They were watchful of my girls as we played throughout the week, as were the other friendly guests. The proximity to local amenities... More
