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 on the lake. So we booked at Nelson's Cottages for 3 nights.
While my family stayed elsewhere on the Lake, I wanted to give something new a try and we were glad we did. We ended up staying in Kentucky, and the cabin was much more than we were expecting. We ended up with a full kitchen, that had everything you needed in it to cook a meal, a decent sized living room, a separate bedroom with a double bed. The cabin was spotless and very well kept.
The over all stay was one of the most relaxing times I've had up in the Adirondacks. The other guests as well as Ken, Linda, and Julie were all warm and inviting. Sunsets at the lake are breath taking. And over all, I see this as a place that I would want to take my kids (when we finally have some).
It's definitely worth the stay, and My wife and I plan on staying again. Hopefully sooner rather than later!
