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

We were looking last minute for a room near old forge and found Nelson's. We could not have been more pleased. The staff was friendly and welcoming. It felt as though she knew us for years yet we just met. The cabin was very clean and larger than expected. They have a swing set, slide, ping pong table, basketball hoop... More

We were not able to stay at Nelson's Cottages, but stopped in looking for a last minute place to stay with a dog. The Innkeeper invited us in her home (dinner time) to use her phone (cell phone service is sketchy) and assisted me in finding a place in the area with a vacancy and that allows dogs. She was...

Haven't been to the ADK mountains for over 40 years, but plan on another trip next year and the only place to stay in my mind, is Nelson's Cottages. The owners, Linda and Ken go WAY out of their way to make sure guests have what they need rain or shine! The views from the dock are spectacular and the... More
