My husband and I are not the B&B type (we prefer hotels) but we loved our stay. We've stayed here twice at the B&B a couple years back (2010 and 2012) and we also rented one of their lake side cottages in 2014. Get location and great place.

My wife & I just got back from spending four days at Kiwassa Lake B&B - we loved staying in the Pike room with great water views and a private deck only a few feet from the edge of the beautiful lake - the location is close enough to all kinds of Adirondack mountain activities and quiet enough to just...

We got totally caught out by an extremely early and unusual cancellation policy - 1month before our stay and we lost a huge amount of money - I'm so upset I can't believe people would take our money and give nothing in return!! Disgusting behaviour! I'd found a more reasonably priced cabin which suited our needs and fitted our intinery... More

This B&B was in a wonderfully secluded location, in the woods along lake Kiwassa, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. We stayed for a week in the Eagle room which had amazing views, especially the sunset. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the deck overlooking the water eating pulled pork sandwiches from the Tail of the Pup.... More

We were looking for a relaxing place to enjoy our vacation in the Adirondacks – away from the hustle and bustle. And we found it! Kiwassa Lake B&B sits on a beautiful lake, with little development. The view from our room (The Eagle Room) was wonderful. We enjoyed seeing the sunset from there and were able to picnic on the... More

I only stayed for one night because I was traveling for business. I would love to come back and stay longer. This is a beautiful, quiet getaway. I stayed in the moose room which was cozy and felt like a home instead of a hotel. My hosts were wonderful.

We stayed here for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival (in February). We loved it. It is right on the lake, and just a few miles from Saranac Lake. Our room (the Bear Room) was huge, and in great condition. We looked at the other rooms, and one of the cabins, and they were great too. Our hosts were friendly and... More

My friend and I stayed at this charming and comfortable B&B for two nights in November 2014. We were met at the door by Cliff (one of the owners) and Laney (a friendly black lab) and shown to the Bear Room - a huge, vaulted ceilinged bedroom with 2 queen beds, a fireplace, walk-in closet and well appointed bathroom. We... More

What a lovely experience at the Kiwassa Lake B&B. It is a bit perplexing to find, way down at the end of a winding road and then dirt driveway that passes by the Cochrans's construction business and sheds, but once you're there, wow. Beautiful house and such gracious hospitality. A warm welcome when we arrived, delicious breakfasts and good coffee... More

We've rented houses on various lakes throughout the Adirondacks over the years, but this was our first time visiting in Autumn and staying at a B&B. Margie was a very relaxed hostess, always ready to answer our questions and do anything she could to make our stay more enjoyable. The food was delicious, the view from the room (Eagle) was... More
