I have stayed in Camp Helen five times, enjoying each visit. For me, the location works well for various canoe outings. And I enjoy sitting on the screened in porch during the longer summer evenings. (By mid-September, it gets a bit chilly to stay out very late.) I also enjoy the peace and quiet I find at Cochran's cabins. For... More

We have come to Cochran's for two summers in a row, and have loved the experience both times. The setting is spectacular, and the feeling is rustic and simple. This is not a luxury resort, but everything is clean, well-maintained, and cozy. The owners are super-friendly and knowledgeable about the options for local hiking, paddling, boating, etc. We hope to... More

Once again we got to experience some R & R at Cochrans this summer. My husband and I took our vacation this year withr total peace & quiet in mind and we were not disappointed. After the long drive in the pouring rain, we arrived at Camp Helen (our 3rd. time staying there over the past 18 years years) to... More

Cochran's Cabins has a wonderful location right on the Kiwassa Lake inlet, between Kiwassa Lake and Oseetah Lake. Almost all of the cabins have docks that lead right out to the inlet, so you can put your canoe, kayak or small boat right in and float out to either lake. The setting is quiet and tranquil, at the end of... More

We are happy to hear that there were some parts of the property that you enjoyed. In being in business for over 30 years, we realize some guests enjoy our rustic cabins, which we advertise as such, while others are more likely suited in our waterfront B&B in a luxury suite. Now to address the concerns you had with your... More

My friend and I were looking for an affordable Labor Day weekend getaway and after combing through overpriced AirBNB cottages we had just about given up until we somehow stumbled upon the Cochran's Cabins website. "Modest pricing, incredibly close proximity to a body of water, and the option to bring along our dog?! There must be a catch," we thought.... More

We have been going to Cochran's for 20 years, and look forward to getting back there every summer. The cabins are clean,well equipped and located in a wooded area with a dock on Kiwassa Inlet. We canoe, fish, bird watch, and enjoy the Perseid Meteor Shower at night. If you love the outdoors, this is the place for you. You... More

Let me start by saying having lived in Saranac Lake NY that I know what the true Adirondack experience is and can be. No doubt Cochran's Cabins takes my hi-5 for friendly and comfy accommodations. Been there and are repeat customers of Margie and Cliff's since 1996.I like to kinda rough it so if you do too check them out.... More

For the past eight years a group of us have rented Camp MaryAnne (Cochran Cabins) during the fall season. Our rustic cabin was situated in a lovely forest setting next to the water with a dock and was conveniently located a short distance from the town of Saranac Lake. We enjoyed the screened-in porch and found the appliances/cookware in the... More

We have stayed at Cochran's many times and have always had a great experience. The cabins are clean and tidy with everything you need for a true Adirondack experience. The Cochrans are very accommodating to your needs and welcome pets. This was important to us as we like to include our dogs in our family getaways. Cabins are child friendly... More
