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.

We recently stayed at the "Kentucky Cottage" at Nelson's Cottages in Inlet, NY. My wife and I had a wonderful time. The cottages were clean and contained all the items needed to make our stay comfortable. We kayaked, fished, climbed Bald and Blue Mountains, went to the Adirondack Museum, the Art Museum (VIEW), Brown Tract Ponds, ate breakfast and dinner...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...
