              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1991

              About the owner: We own several properties in the area and this cabin is one of our favorites. We have lived in the Adirondacks since 1991 but have been part-time residents since the 1960s. We even attended the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid! We can offer suggestions for activities unless you simply want to rest and relax in a cabin.

              Why the Owner Chose Saranac Lake:
              This is the most scenic area in the east! It's an easy place to rest, relax and enjoy life at a slower pace. Kiwassa Lake is an idyllic and quiet lake and most guests return year after year to get away from the hustle and bustle of a faster pace. The cabin offers a wonderful deck with Adirondack chairs that allow guests to put their feet up, read a book and soak up the view of the lake. As night falls, the fire pit on site allows for an outdoor ambiance like none other. Often guests will take in a sighting of our lake loon and it's beautiful calls. Other guests have said they've seen eagles, deer, fish jumping, wild types of birds, etc…

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Our property is a dream come true. While there I enjoy bird watching, reading and traveling by boat to the nearby Village of Saranac Lake.
