About Jody Nielsen

Brian and I have two beautiful daughters and three beloved Labrador Retrievers. We love outdoor living and built this home as an escape from everyday stresses and responsibilities. We hope it brings you as much peace and happiness as it does us. Welcome!

Jody Nielsen purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jody Nielsen chose Adirondacks

We are looking forward to retiring in the Adirondaks in 15-20 years. This property has plenty of land and is perfectly situated between beach access and snowmobile trail access. We have never lived so close to groceries or numerous dining establishments.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake Access with property membership to an association that includes a private beach and boat launch. ~2 mile drive from Property.

Snowmobile/hiking trail within site of property.

Walking Distance to Downtown Old Forge, including Enchanted Forest.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jody for sharing your beautiful home!

We were here for the annual BLACK FLY CHALLENGE in Inlet, NY. This was the perfect location as it was just north of Old Forge toward Inlet yet close enough to groceries in Old Forge if needed. It was peaceful and we could enjoy the evenings next to the fire pit enjoying s'more's. We did not run into any bears which others in the area stated they did, so that was a relief. The home is set up beautifully and the furnishings are comfortable. We did have a couple challenges while we were there however Jody was responsive when made aware and that is why we still gave it 5 stars. We look forward to next year!

Wonderful family vacation at a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was like home away for home. Everything you could possibly need was right there. The home was absolutely beautiful and the surroundings were great. We had nightly camp fires and mid day walks in the woods. All the nature we wanted and just minutes (right down the road) from Old Forge. Jody (home owner) was very accommodating and helpful with making our visit great. I would highly recommend vacationing here so others too, can experience an awesome getaway at this truly beautiful home.

Relaxing Rental Away From it All

  • 4 of 5

Pro's: Spacious for a group of 4 to 6, owner was very pleasant/helpful, comfy, new/updated, well equipped, loooooved the kitchen, and great location as it was so close to the center of town.

Cons: wifi VERY spotty, need more hangers and wash cloths, unable to access Netflix at times due to too many users. One final thing that rubbed me the wrong way was the cleaning service/person. Check out was at 11 am, but the cleaning person sat at the end of the driveway from 10-10:15. Then around 10:20 they pulled in and blocked the end of driveway and sat there with the car running and lights still on until we loaded our cars and left. They provided no explanation, no "hello how ya doing". I found it to be very rude, pushy and passive aggressive and our group felt rushed. Word to the next occupants, be out of there by 10am.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We have taken action on most of your feedback. We have purchased more wash cloths and hand towels and purchased 50 hangers. Additionally we have posted check out times. While we did have the check out time at 10 am on the terms page, I suspect it could get easily lost in the details. Additionally I have updated the hospitality page and put a posted frame on the counter with check out times. We are VERY sorry you felt rushed. I love that our cleaning person was there on time. I can imagine that if you thought you had more time, it would be frustrating on both ends. Finally, there isn't much we can do about the internet. We moved the wireless upstairs to enable folks to reset without going into the basement. The power goes out often and we are not eligible for cable or other solutions where we live. We are glad you stayed with us. Thanks again for your feedback. It made the property better for future rentals.
