Very Nice property

  • 4 of 5

What a nice cabin and Marjorie is so sweet. The cabin was nice and clean. Nothing fancy but we didn't need fancy. The screened in porch was very nice to keep all the mosquitoes and black flies away. The living room area is spacious and very relaxing. The bedrooms are small but we just needed a place to sleep. The dock looked brand new and was very nice. The parking lot is a bit cramped so that's the only reason why I gave it 4 stars. Most people have larger SUV's nowadays and it was hard to squeeze 3 vehicles in that spot. In order to load our boats we had to back into the road to load them. I would highly recommend this cabin and we plan on visiting it again in the future.

The cabin is located on Kiwassa Lake in the Adirondacks just 3 miles from the Village of Saranac Lake and 10 miles from Lake Placid.

The Adirondack Mountains offers 689 lakes and ponds. Kiwassa Lake is part of the Saranac Lake Chain which means guests of this cabin have access to 23 miles of waterways from the cabin. From this Adirondack cabin, you are able to travel from Kiwassa Lake, by boat, to the Village of Saranac Lake. The popular Adirondack route from Kiwassa Lake takes you through Oseetah Lake into the Village of Saranac Lake where the Saranac River begins. You may also enjoy a waterway trip 40 miles through scenic Adirondack lakes, ponds, rivers & streams, & go through State locks into the Adirondack State Preserve.

Boat rentals may be available during your stay but it is best to reserve early as we cannot guarantee availability.

Adirondack Fishing

From and on Kiwassa Lake in the Adirondacks, fish for Northern pike, trout, bass, perch, whitefish and panfish.

ESPN has also held its Great Outdoor Games Bass Fishing Tournament on the Saranac Chain of Lakes!
