About Margie Cochran

We own several properties in the area and this cabin is one of our favorites. We have lived in the Adirondacks since 1991 but have been part-time residents since the 1960s. We even attended the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid! We can offer suggestions for activities unless you simply want to rest and relax in a cabin.

Margie Cochran purchased this cabin in 1991

Why Margie Cochran chose Adirondacks

This is the most scenic area in the east! It is an easy place to rest, relax and enjoy life at a slower pace. Kiwassa Lake is an idyllic and quiet lake and most guests return year after year to get away from the hustle and bustle of a faster pace.

The cabin offers a wonderful deck with Adirondack chairs that allow guests to put their feet up, read a book and soak up the view of the lake. As night falls, the fire pit on site allows for an outdoor ambiance like none other.

Often guests will take in a sighting of our lake loon and its beautiful calls. Other guests have said they have seen eagles, deer, fish jumping, wild types of birds, etc…

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is a dream come true. While there I enjoy bird watching, reading and traveling by boat to the nearby Village of Saranac Lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking at many palces throughout the Adirondacks for mini-vacation stay for the family. We wanted quiet, solitude and beautiful surroundings and got all three plus a beautiful loon at Cochran's Cabins. We stayed in Camp Anne and it worked well for us. Dock on the inlet was nice for fishing and canoeing. Kitchen had everything we needed. Screened in porch was a plus. Clean and neat and just right. We will return!

Great place to unwind - hospitality is on point

  • 5 of 5

The Cochran Cabins are the perfect spot for a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Nestled within miles of surrounding forest, this waterfront B&B on Kiwassa Lake, enabled me to relax and unwind while taking in the breathtaking views from my room. This would not have been possible without the amazing hospitality of the owners, Margie and Cliff. Breakfast was delicious and Margie went out of her way to be accommodating to my dietary restrictions. The accommodations in the Adele cabin were impeccable. You can tell great care is taken on the upkeep and maintenance of the cabins. I am definately returning to this this spot and recommend it to anyone in need of some R&R.

Adirondaks gem

  • 5 of 5

Kiwassa Lake Bed and Breakfast is a true gem quaintly located on Kiwassa Lake in Saranac Lake, New York. I visited here for a girls weekend getaway and had a fantastic visit! A secluded property with beautiful views of the lake and a delightful host family. Delicious breakfast, cheery demeanor, cozy fireplace. Camp Adelle is one of the cabins available on the property and I couldn't say enough great things about it. Private, cozy, comfortable deck for reading a book and gazing at the lake. You even have access to your own private fishing dock! You won't regret a weekend getaway at Camp Adelle. Book your stay now!
