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

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is a dream come true. While there , guests enjoy bird watching, reading and traveling by boat to the nearby Village of Saranac Lake. Often guests will take in a sighting of the lake's loon and its beautiful calls. Other guests have said they have seen eagles, deer, fish jumping, wild types of birds, etc…

Secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience renting one of Marjorie's cabins (George) this past weekend. She was very welcoming and a great host. I would consider her cabin rustic, but had essentials including running water, stove and refrigerator/freezer. A+ all around.

Saranac Lake is a great little town with endless outdoor opportunities within driving distance.

No Frills

  • 2 of 5

To be 100% honest, the accommodations were not up to my standards. The cabin is very dark & dreary with very poor lighting & actually the lighting seemed dangerous. The windows don't open & there aren't any fans. On a hot day this would be unbearable. One of the mattresses were totally unusable with springs popping all over. There is a major septic issue so you're not expected to run water. This makes it difficult to cook. I wouldn't expect any housekeeping during the stay but I wouldn't expect to be the housekeeper when I left either.

As far as the positives, it's a beautiful, tranquil area with excellent fishing.

I'd like to state more positive feedback but I am a big fan of reading reviews & feel they should serve a purpose. To me, it's a great cabin for a couple of die hard fishermen or hunters that just need the cabin to lay their head at night.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed you were not satisfied with your vintage, rustic housekeeping (which means you will clean up after yourself) cabin rental. Which is exactly as we advertise. To make up blatant mistruths about the cabin is not fair. Of course you can run the water. Of course there is an adequate septic system.Of course there is adequate, safe lighting. We have permits from the board of health for our facility and if we did not have adequate septic systems and potable water, safe lighting, we would be out of business. Again we are very surprised you were not happy in our clean, comfortable, rustic cabin.

Quiet. Detached from cyberworld!

  • 4 of 5

I attended school at Paul Smith's College in the late 80s and couldn't wait to get back to the area after being away for almost 30 years! Made several pass thrus over the years but have not stayed for any extended period of time. I was very excited to go ally show my family where I went to school and the great outdoors that surround. We picked a weekend that my college roommate and his family could meet with mine. Exciting times for sure. Cochran cabins helped make a great scenario come to life. Awesome setting. Great access by canoe to where ever you pretty much want to go and even let the little ones take the canoes without worry. Thanks

Relaxing, rustic getaway near many activities and attractions

  • 5 of 5

Camp George is a very sweet, neat cabin. The screened porch is just heavenly and a lovely place to sit and watch the boats go by, as well as loons, ducks, geese and herons. My son enjoyed fishing from the dock every moment we weren't boating, mountain biking, hiking or exploring the nearby towns and attractions. I would recommend these cabins to anyone looking for a rustic, relaxing getaway.
