I have been staying at Nelson's Cottages for many years now & am just as thrilled with it as I was the 1st year I was there over 25 yrs ago. They are, without a doubt, the friendliest family ever. They are knowledgeable about the surrounding area, the dining, what to go see, what needs reservations, etc. The cottages are... More

We Loved our stay at the Nelson's Cottages. Everything was so simple. Call up, speak with the owners themselves, make reservations & go to Inlet, NY. Just off route 28 in the town of Webb, outside of Inlet NY, located near fine dining, a state boat launch and wonderful Arrowhead Park is this wonderful little nesting of cottages. A row... 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

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.
