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 of five). There was the minor nuisance of having to load up the car with our own linens and towels, but this seems to be very much the norm for Adirondack cottage rentals. Less than a five minute walk from the center of Inlet and only 10 miles from Old Forge, the location is unbeatable. There is a very well-kept large grass lawn leading to a little sandy beach and a dock, the perfect place to enjoy those beautiful sunsets. (My only recommendations for improvement are in regards to the swimming area: the makeshift rope of old swimming noodles should be replaced with a proper rope buoy, and the floating geese seem unnecessary, as they do little to keep the ducks away.) Plentiful comfortable seating and a fire-pit are ideal for enjoying s'mores in the company of your cottage neighbors. There's something special about a place where patrons return year after year, as was the case with several of the families staying at Nelson's this summer. Included in the rental is access to several kayaks, which we enjoyed all week. Above all, the owners were friendly, accommodating, and helpful.
