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 seating that allows 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 , 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…

My kids gave it 3 stars

  • 3 of 5

Owners are very nice. Cabin was easy to find, clean and tidy. Rustic. Nice area. Not far from restaurants & shops.

Drawbacks: cabin has limited overhead lighting so it was hard to see at night to play board games, and to cook in the morning.

The beds are very hard & extremely uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that your cabin was clean for your arrival. I can honestly say, we try to ensure the comfort of our guests. If we are informed of discomfort during a guests’ stay, we can help! To help reiterate this point, we personally escort each guest to their cabin at check-in, and ask that they please let us know if there is anything at all they need during their stay. Understanding certain grievances after the fact leaves us at a disadvantage to reconcile things like mattress comfort and lighting. - In regards to mattress comfort, it’s very subjective which is why it takes most couples more than just a couple of hours to pick one out at the mattress store. Yes, platform beds can be firm! Believe it or not, we have extras for these instances (to help suit comfort levels). Had we known, we would’ve accommodated with a softer mattress. - In regards to lighting, we also have extra lamps/lights. Believe it or not, some of our guests appreciate the soft light that the propane lights put out and they supplement the light, as needed, by moving the goose neck standing lamps to spotlight the area they are working in!

Not a good fit.

  • 3 of 5

There is a reason that no photos of the bedroom and bathroom are on the site. My friend and I shared a bed that was wedged between two walls, with a third side at the back wall. At 6'3" he did not fit! And at 5'8" I had little left as well. The toilet was so near to the facing wall we could not use it properly. There was ample privacy and quiet, and it is pleasantly rustic. But I've learned my lesson. Yes, we spent our last morning doing the cleaning and mopping. I'd have paid for a cleaning service if offered. Love the Adirondacks, but will go elsewhere to stay.

Perfect Adirondack Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so private and the hosts so helpful! It doesn't just have the Adirondack old school feel........ it is the real deal! The cabin was stellar and they have thought of everything you might need to enjoy it. We are paddlers and this was the perfect starting point for anywhere we wanted to go. So much fun going through the locks and the lakes and rivers are perfectly marked so you know exactly where to go. We have been going to the high peaks for 30 years and this cabin was a real find for us. So book it, go, and enjoy our beautiful lakes & mountains in New York State!!

Rustic Nature log cabin

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for the authentic Adirondack log cabin experience right on the edge of the water, this is it! No cheapo touristy ugrades here. The cabin was still outfitted with the original gas lantern light fixtures and a great wood burning stove which we used both nights. There is electricity and a gas heater available but we enjoyed going non-electric for a few days. The cabin was clean, but be advised this is NOT the upgraded renovated 'every surface new and clean' experience. Also know that it is on the water but not on the lake proper, it is on a connecting channel.We were able to canoe for just a few minutes and get out to either of the two large lakes with beautiful views. Reminder that the beds are doubles not queens. Marjorie was great, very friendly and helpful. Having the privacy of our own little house on the edge of the water for a few days was fun. If you are wanting a truly rustic, in the woods feeling, this is it.

Beautiful nature retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a beautiful escape. Located right on the outlet, it is peaceful and surrounded by nature. My husband and I chose this place because it was one of the few that we could find that had the feeling of being private and remote, while still easily accessible and close to town. We enjoyed the beautiful view overlooking the outlet from the patio and used the kayaks to explore the outlet further. The cabin itself is well equipped, cozy and clean. If you want to escape and experience the serene side of the Adirondacks, I recommend this place. Marj is wonderful and very accommodating.
