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.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin exceeded our expectations. The rooms were immaculate, there were plenty of kitchen tools, the fire pit had new seating, and the common areas were welcoming and comfortable. We came for a week with another couple and three young children. We were delighted by the privacy and that there was enough space for the kids to wander and play. It was an easy trip to the main part of town. Jody was incredibly helpful to us as we made plans. I can't recommend this spot highly enough, although I hate to share a spot that we hope to make part of our vacation tradition!

More road noise than expected

  • 3 of 5

Pro: close to Old Forge; nice campfire area and plenty of firewood; wonderful appliances in a very adequate kitchen.

Cons: dim lighting in bedrooms and living room; road noise; private beach not easily accessible. Fridge not completely empty -mostly condiments a door full (This might be a pro for some; first time we ever encountered this in all our rentals)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We take everything seriously. It is important to us to have our guests completely satisfied. The light switches that were installed have this weird dimmer switch right next to the on off light switch. I'm wondering that was pushed down. I need to make a book of these odd things. I can't think of anything else that could explain it. I also need to come up with a better way to describe the beach setting so folks aren't disappointed. We contacted our current renters about the food in fridge. I was super worried. She wasn't bothered by it. It may have grown as the summer rental season progressed. We will talk to our cleaning person. I wish there was something I could do about the noise. We wanted a location close to town. We planted trees but they are still small. Again, many thanks for staying with us and providing feedback.

The house was beautiful. Had everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very close to old forge and not far from Inlet. Very comfortable place. Awesome scenery. Only suggestion would be more outdoor lighting. Hard to see around the fire pit if you forgot lanterns like we did! Other than that not a single complaint! Would 100% rent this place again! Thanks!

Adams Center, NY

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!
