Adirondack Cabin in the woods

Studio style with full bathroom

Max. occupancy 2 people

Pet friendly Adirondack cabin rental located amidst forested preserve and is available nightly spring to fall (not winter). The cabin is not on the water but guests have full access to Kiwassa Lake, just 75' away. Kiwassa Lake is part of the Saranac Chain of Lakes which means guests have access to 23 miles of waterways from Kiwassa Lake.

Guests will enjoy access to Kiwassa Lake with dock space for a boat or canoe as needed. The cabin also offers a wraparound deck with picnic table and charcoal grill.

This one room cabin rental has a double bed and private bath (toilet, sink and shower stall). Linens, including pillows, blankets and towels, are provided. Other amenities include love seat and chair for seating, coffee maker, small fridge and set of dishes.

There is not a kitchen in this cabin. However, guests may opt to order a breakfast basket for two (breakfast muffins, juice and fruit) for an additional fee. Breakfast baskets have limited availability and must be ordered in advance.

The property is part of Cochrans Cabins which is nestled on over twenty wooded acres at the end of the road, on the waters edge of Lake Kiwassa within the Saranac Chain of Lakes. Within 10 miles is the Olympic Village of Lake Placid. Also in the area is hiking, boating, fishing, skiing, etc.

There is a maximum of one pet per rental and all pets must be accounted for in advance, at the time the reservation is made. It is unacceptable to arrive without previous permission and reservation for a pet.

What to bring - The property is amidst 20+ wooded Adirondack acres. It is wise to bring flashlights and sneakers as the path to the cabin is naturally wooded. Other items: binoculars for the beautiful scenery, hiking/boating gear, food, linens (except pillows), charcoal if you plan to grill, games or books for entertainment (no TVs).

Internet and Cell phones - Due to the Adirondack wooded preserve, Internet and cell phones may not be accessible at your cabin. However, the nearby property and greens are WiFi compatible. Feel free to bring your laptop and set up on the porch (or on a cozy Adirondack chair on the main lawn area).

Guests enjoy this simple cabin without TV or gaming devices because they can relax, enjoy nature and reconnect with family and friends. Guests are able enjoy a simple spot amidst forested trees with a short walk to a gorgeous Adirondack waterfront.

On property, guests have seen amazing wildlife including Adirondack birds, eagles, loons, etc. Amazing fishing abounds with pike, bass, etc waiting for you. Boating is ample with over 23 miles of waterways through the Saranac Chain of Lakes through Lower Saranac Lake, Middle Saranac Lake, Lake Flower in the Village of Saranac Lake, etc...

Up for an Adirondack Adventure?

After, during or apart from your stay, take a canoe/camping trip. Park your car at the cabin property and transportation will be arranged for you, your gear, including canoe/kayak, at Lower or Middle Saranac Lake where camping is available on an Adirondack island. At that point, your adventure will begin! Navigate your way back to Kiwassa Lake through the Lower Saranac Lake locks including, if you desire, a night camping during your trek back. Camping will need to be arranged by you but if you are interested, we can direct you to the reservation site.

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 1992

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 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…

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.

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.
