The Cochran Cabins are the perfect spot for a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Nestled within miles of surrounding forest, this waterfront B&B on Kiwassa Lake, enabled me to relax and unwind while taking in the breathtaking views from my room. This would not have been possible without the amazing hospitality of the owners, Margie... More

We were looking for a rustic cabin, on the water where we could fish and kayak. That is exactly what we found here. Great place. Nice owner. We had a wonderful weekend. Limited cell service in this area allowed us to truly unplug! Would definitely go again!!

Cochran's Cabins is a true gem quaintly located on Kiwassa Lake in Saranac Lake, New York. I visited here for a girls weekend getaway and had a fantastic stay! A secluded property with beautiful views of the lake and a delightful host family. Delicious breakfast, cheery demeanor, cozy fireplace. The hosts give a lot of attention to detail from small...

This place took my breath away. It is secluded but accessible. The owners are friendly, inviting , and so pleasant to do business with. Their dog Lainey was just as friendly ! The cabin I had requested was too wet so they upgraded me for free. They went out of their way to be agreeable. I was extremely satisfied with... More

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.
