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
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…
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.

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!!
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.
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.
It is very rustic yes, but if you love being surrounded by nature it's fantastic. Deep in the woods, right on the outlet to many lakes. Minutes to downtown Saranac which is nothing like lake Placid, felt like we were the only tourists in mid-Aigust! Bring a fan in summer as it gets hot. Everything you need is there, your own little cabin, very secluded feeling to it. Marj is a very kind, helpful lady! Rented a canoe for a very nice trip to 2 lakes. Only gripe is the beds are not really for 2 adults, but we got two bedrooms. Would recommend for a relaxing trip to the Saranac region.
Our cabin was a charming, rustic yet well equipped getaway in a beautiful woodsy setting. We loved the screened porch since June can be buggy. The elevated deck offered a nice view of the water. The dock made it easy for us to put in our kayak on Kiwassa Lake and enjoy the scenery. My husband saw an eagle and we had a momma duck and her four chicks swim by each day. Our golden retriever loved the super close water access :) This place is for nature lovers !! And the owner Marjorie was so prompt in her responses to our reservation, deposit acceptance and arrival info. This is a very organized operation. We also enjoyed the kitchen being so fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, toaster, coffee maker. We really only had to bring our food and sleeping linens. We really enjoyed our stay !!
