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 1992
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 that allow guests to put their feet up, read a book and soak up the view of the lake. 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…
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.
Wonderful location, good facilities, good people... We'll be back.
We stayed in Marnie for five days and didn't want to leave! The cabin was exactly as described in the listing and very clean. Marjorie and her whole family were so wonderful and Lainey (the dog) kept us company everyday. The cabins are nestled amongst the trees offering privacy and peace and quiet. The cabins have a rustic feel with the convenience of bathrooms. Anyone that is use to the relaxing nature of the Adirondacks will really love and appreciate this place. We kayaked and fished everyday right off the docks on Kiwassa Lake and also went into Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid all short drives from Cochran's Cabins. We also visited the Wild Center and went on the Wild Walk. This was truly an awesome experience and would recommend it to everyone young and old!! So if you go, enjoy your stay and give Lainey a belly rub for us.
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.
