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

Nelson's cottages provided our family with a wonderful ending to a disappointing beginning. We had booked a cottage elsewhere and were greeted with filth, strong mildew smell, and unhelpful owners. We persevered for a few nights and then ventured out in hopes to find a place that would accommodate us in such short notice. Finding our way to Nelson's Cottages... More

Rented a motel unit for two nights and had a very nice stay. Owners are very nice people. Nice beach and dock on well maintained property with small play ground. The basic rooms are tight but we came to be outdoors.

Another wonderful week at Nelson's Cottages- it was my 34th year. We stayed in Florida and it was perfect for our family. Our extended family filled up 6 cottages this year and as always Ken, Linda and Julie made us feel very welcome. Our cottage was clean and the grounds and the rates are competitive. There is always enough parking... More

If you're looking for a "fancy, frilly, luxurious, expensive place to stay in Inlet, this is not it. If you're looking for a welcoming, clean, home-like, wonderful place to spend a relaxing night or extended stay, with very family-like hosts, this is the place for you. This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Nelson's cottages,... More

Just returned home from the gorgeous Adirondacks and a wonderful stay at Nelson's Cottages. Clean, cute, comfy, very friendly owners and other campers. Bonfire on the beach at night. Swimming and relaxing/sightseeing during the day. This was a "family get-away" and our 2 cottages were connected.......one for us and one for our daughter and her family. We had a GREAT... More

Every year we go on a family vacation in the Adirondacks, my mother jokes about staying in some "godforsaken cabin in the woods." Fortunately for us, this was far from the case at Nelson's! The cottage we stayed in was very clean and we never experienced a real issue with having hot water in the shower (we were a cottage... More

I spent many a summer, in my childhood, on Fourth Lake. My family used to vacation there, so in the last 4 years I've been bringing my wife up there to show her what I loved so much about it. Normally we camp in Old Forge, but this year I decided it was time to stay in a cabin right... More

We stayed at the Nelson's for a week and had a great time. There is plenty to do in Old Forge and Inlet. The Nelson's have a canoe and kayaks we used to explore the lake and do some fishing. The cabins are clean and comfortable. Ours had a kitchen that was well stocked with dishes, glasses and utensils. At... More
