f you are looking for a reasonably priced cabin or cottage situated near a good swimming lake, then Clayton's Cottages are just right. Inlet is a smal town in the Adirondack area, and does not boast much in the way of attractions (other than large amusement parks nearby). But the forests and lake wilderness are wonderful enough in themselves. The cottages (about 9 in total, and each with its own name) are situated near the lake, and each have kitchens and living areas that are comfortable. There is everything you need in the cottage. The interiors of the cottages are done with wooden walls and floors, and the furnishings are a bit worn, but that's ok. The atmosphere is just generally rustic! Some of the cottages have a direct view of the Sixth Lake. Families are welcome here. There is a long pier, where you can jump off for a lovely swim. And there is a small sandy beach where younger children can play. There are aluminum rowboats for guests' use, and we had fun paddling around in them . There is a restaurant adjoing the cottage premises, and some other snack-bar restaurants in the vicinity. But we preferred cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and barbecuing. There are fireplaces in some of the cottages (not sure if all have them, but ours did), so if cold weather sets in, you can be warmed by a fire. There is also heating in the cottages, if that is preferable. The beds are not super comfortable, but we had no problems with mosquitoes or with bed bugs. Everything very clean and orderly here! I heartily recommend this lakeside place for easy-going guests!

I stayed here with my wife and kids a few weeks ago. We've been looking for a cottage community near Inlet, and found this one on the net.

Overall, the experience was good. All of the cottages/houses are relatively old, and it shows - for example, our front door was cut more as a trapezoid than a rectangle because of the settling in the building. The bedrooms are very small - just large enough to fit in a double bed and dresser, and that's it.

The kitchenette was fine; The stove and fridge were in good shape. We would have liked to have a microwave, but there probably just isn't enough room.

The beach is small, but has a very nice deck/sitting area, and it's great for smaller kids. There are two rowboats for guests, but we didn't end up using them.

It was noticeable that the owner seems to be obsessive about insurance regulations and rules. The initial rental contract we received was literally four or five times longer than any other one we've had in 40 years of vacationing in other cottages in the area. When we signed in, he insisted on verbally going over the rules for ten minutes. In the cottage itself, there were several pages of rules affixed to the walls - again, very unusual, in our experience. Nonetheless, it wasn't an issue at all during the week. The owner was very personable and friendly to everyone, and everyone did pretty much their own thing.

The children's play area is very minimal - a tire swing, volleyball court, and two strap swings.

What we liked best was that the environment was very family-friendly; Most of the people there had kids, and there was none of the noise and rowdiness that we've experienced at other local cottage communities. In fact, after about 10:30PM on most nights, it seemed like everyone was in bed.

Would I go here again? Absolutely. The location is convenient to a lot of the central Adirondack attractions, the cottages themselves are appropriately priced for what you get, and the environment is relaxing. I recommend it particularly for families with small kids,
