we stayed a whole week with our 2 very busy kids, staying at Camp Victor, with its own porch, sight on the water, making the experience of a very authentic wood cabin with all the comfort. It seems you don't have any neighbours. The Cochrans are very nice, warm people and the kids were always welcome. Breakfast is just unforgettable,... More

We just loved the little cabin Melissa. It was a perfect ending to our special day. The cabin was decorated with such detail. We enjoyed coffee in the morning on our very own deck. We also had a small breakfast basket delivered before we left. Very clean a lovely stay. We booked for our anniversary next year! I cant wait... More

This is our third year staying at Cochran's cabins. We have stayed in different cabins over these years and they are all very clean and well kept. The Cochran's are very nice folk, who have extended great welcoming hospitality. We've noticed how much work they put into keeping up their sites. They newly rebuilt most of their docks after a...

If you like camping, but want some comfort as well, but you dislike typical camp sites with tens of tents around you, and at the same time access to the city life (Lake Placid and Saranac Lake), this is the place to be. Located right on Kiwassa Lake Outlet, you have the option to either use your own tent or... More

We were looking at many palces throughout the Adirondacks for mini-vacation stay for the family. We wanted quiet, solitude and beautiful surroundings and got all three plus a beautiful loon at Cochran's Cabins. We stayed in Camp Anne and it worked well for us. Dock on the inlet was nice for fishing and canoeing. Kitchen had everything we needed. Screened... More

We have always tented and decided to upgrade to a cottage this year but still wanted to have the 'in the woods' feel. Camp Adelle in Cochran's Cabins was the perfect choice. It was rustic but provided many amenities that are missing in a tent! The Cochran's also run a bed and breakfast on the property and they exude such... More

Our family camps regularly in the Adirondacks. We normally camp on one of the islands on Lower Saranac Lake. But with two toddlers in tow now we thought we would try to find something with a little easier access, but would still be able to put our kayaks in the water and go swimming. The pictures online were pretty deceiving... More

Note that this review is for Cochran's Cabins and not Kiwassa Lake B&B. We are sorry you were disappointed in your stay at the campsite we offer. We know the weather was not on your side which we know must not have been fun to camp in.... With a property this large, a heads-up from our guests when something is... More

Cochran's Cabins web site depicts a beautifully groomed campsite on the water with access for boating. What we had was a campsite rife with weeds, wooden planks with nails sticking out of them, rusting beer kegs, a rusty stove thrown into the brush, old pieces of some kind of float material for a dock, and a broken dock pushed sideways...

Note: the complaints on 8/11/12 and 8/12/12 were both from the same group and the same management response applies as follows: I am sorry that we cannot control the weather nor the water levels in the lakes and streams. However we can control what happens at Cochran’s Cabins and were never ever apprised of this situation until after the guests... More

My family rented four cabins here for our annual week long family reunion. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed these rustic cabins in a beautiful Adirondack forest. Some may be put off by the rustic nature of these woodsy accommodations, but we loved it. The following are not exactly critiques but a few things to be aware of if... More

My family has stayed at Cochran's every summer for about 25 years. The cabins are sturdy and cozy, many with wood burning stoves for taking the chill off of cool nights; the screened-in porches are the perfect place to enjoy a storm; and you can't beat relaxing on the expansive decks or your very own dock when you just want...
