We stayed for a week in Kiwassa Lake Bed and Breakfast. We fell in love with the house; the lake; surrounding hemlocks, birch trees, pines; beautiful birds; and most of all warm hospitality of the Chochran family. This place envelopes you in serenity. What a priceless experience we will remember for a long time: sitting on a dock of the... More

This was our second stay, the first being six years earlier. This time, we upgraded from a small cabin to the newly completed Goose Landing "bonus room" above the aircraft hanger. This was a wonderful way to celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary. This studio apartment has two beds, two sofas, a good sized kitchen, and a pleasant view. The Cochrans... More

My husband, two sons and I stayed here for four nights. The Bear Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast every morning was delicious. Margie and her family made us feel at home. We would love to come back and experience summer at the B&B.

It was great getting to know your family and hearing about all of your adventures while you were visiting our area. We loved serving the boys their hot chocolate in the morning with extra whipped cream just to see the smiles on their faces. Hope to see you again. More

Stayed for two nights in February and everything was great. It was great to feel like you were in a remote setting but still be so close to town (10 minute drive). The rooms were large and very omfortable. Both of our breakfasts were delicious and gave us a great start for the day's adventures. The owners were very accomodating... More

We had a great weekend at the B&B. The owners are great and offered a great breakfast in the morning. I was suprised how large our room was and great private bath. The shared kitchen for guests on the seocnd floor is a great idea. We went for a winter weekend but could tell how much fun the B&B would... More

Enjoyed my stay at this cozy Saranac Lake B&B. My stay in the Eagle room couldn't have been better with a view overlooking the beautiful lake. Margie warmly welcomed me and treated me like family :-). Can't wait to return!

The perfect B&B with stunning views over the lake and a short drive to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. We came in the 'off season' between Fall colours and winter, but the whole area was so peaceful and beautiful. Kiwassa Lake B&B did not disappoint. Huge, comfortable, warm rooms with every amenity available. The small guest kitchen was an unexpected... More

A fall color photography trip luckily brought us to this charming farmhouse on the edge of Saranac Lake. Innkeeper Margie warmly welcomed and treated us like treasured guests. As a host, she was perfectly knowledgeable, friendly and enormously helpful. Pike, our room, was very comfortable and the tasteful interiors of the community areas were much appreciated. Margie made the most... More

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay in the Eagle room. We enjoy staying in B&Bs for the warm hospitality and conversation with the keepers and the guests and Kiwassa definitely fit right in there.
