“Had a great stay!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

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 and friendly. We enjoyed hatting with them each morning. Can't wait to come back and spend some time in the summer.

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 be in the summer with all the activities they offer. Only 3 miles outside of Saranac so you are close to shops and resturants but when you return it feels like a very private place. We plan to return in the warmer months to expeince the lake.

Perfect spot to get away from it all and relax. Warm, friendly hosts in a cozy setting. Beautiful view of lake from our room. Room was spacious, comfortable, private and had everything we needed. Enjoyed delicious breakfasts in dining room overlooking the lake. Lots of outdoor activities to do on spot or nearby. Highly recommend for romantic weekend and to completely lose track of time. We will be back! Thank you! Robert & Tracey

Room Tip: We stayed in Pike room, very spacious, comfortable &clean, with private bath and great view

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 bonus. Margie's breakfasts were amazing - something different every day. She was the perfect host - happy to chat when we were, after breakfast, but left us to ourselves when we wanted. KIds were welcome and loved Laney the dog. We'd love to come back.

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 scrumptious treats and delicious breakfasts. To top it all off, there is the surrounding beauty of the Saranac Lake and the Adirondacks! Should we be in that area again, we would definitely stay at Kiwassa Lake Bed & Breakfast.

Room Tip: Pike has a deck.

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. Margie, Cliff, and Doug were wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed our morning ( and evening) conversations with them. They served a fantastic breakfast each morning that filled us up and got us ready for the many outdoor activities that were available to us. They had lots of wonderful suggestions on things to do and see. The room was perfect, and we loved having the windows open at night to listen to the sounds of the 'wilderness'. In fact, that's what it felt like, it was so quiet and peaceful that we thought we were on another planet! This was exactly what we were looking for and it made for the most relaxing week we have ever had. There were plenty of kayaks and canoes to enjoy and endless miles of water to row through. The town of Saranac was very quaint, with lots of great restaurants and plenty of great hiking trails just outside of town. We were very sad to leave and if we had flexible schedules we probably would have added on a few more days:) We WILL be back! Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing vacation! By the way, there are also many cabins on this property that are for weekly rental during the July/Aug mos (and I believe they do nightly rentals all other months). This is a great alternative for families and larger groups!

Room Tip: The Eagle and Pike rooms are both lake facing and have wonderful views of the lake.
