Unpleasant to say the least!!
This was a nice little place, however do not be fooled! We had looked for somewhere that was pet friendly so that we could bring our dog with us. We did receive any information about the “pet policy” untill we arrived. If you decided to bring your pet you are expected to bring them everywhere with you! And if you leave them unattended (even if they are a safe a secure in their crate) you will be told to leave the property as well as forfit all payments! We ended up having to put our dog in a kennel for the three nights while we were there. Not to mention the cabins are extremely overpriced at $1000 for three nights!!! I would say we had a great time because we made the most of our trip because we had no choice, but I would highly recommend not staying here.
I am glad that you did make the most of your stay and enjoyed the area. It’s disappointing that you did not read any of the four emails sent to you beginning with a confirmation email the date you made the reservation and ending with an arrival info email. In our emails we ask you to read and agree to our pet policy found on our website. Since the cabins sit directly on the waters edge, noise travels and barking dogs left in an unfamiliar place disturb neighbors and other guests. We like to think that when guests bring pets it’s because they want to be with them. We prefer our cabins not be used as kennels.
Very peaceful place to enjoy family time!
Very nice cabin with a simple theme but just what we were looking for. Very peaceful
Thanks for coming! Glad you enjoyed our simple, rustic waterfront cabin in the woods!
Very Nice property
What a nice cabin and Marjorie is so sweet. The cabin was nice and clean. Nothing fancy but we didn't need fancy. The screened in porch was very nice to keep all the mosquitoes and black flies away. The living room area is spacious and very relaxing. The bedrooms are small but we just needed a place to sleep. The dock looked brand new and was very nice. The parking lot is a bit cramped so that's the only reason why I gave it 4 stars. Most people have larger SUV's nowadays and it was hard to squeeze 3 vehicles in that spot. In order to load our boats we had to back into the road to load them. I would highly recommend this cabin and we plan on visiting it again in the future.
The cabin is located on Kiwassa Lake in the Adirondacks just 3 miles from the Village of Saranac Lake and 10 miles from Lake Placid.
The Adirondack Mountains offers 689 lakes and ponds. Kiwassa Lake is part of the Saranac Lake Chain which means guests of this cabin have access to 23 miles of waterways from the cabin. From this Adirondack cabin, you are able to travel from Kiwassa Lake, by boat, to the Village of Saranac Lake. The popular Adirondack route from Kiwassa Lake takes you through Oseetah Lake into the Village of Saranac Lake where the Saranac River begins. You may also enjoy a waterway trip 40 miles through scenic Adirondack lakes, ponds, rivers & streams, & go through State locks into the Adirondack State Preserve.
Boat rentals may be available during your stay but it is best to reserve early as we cannot guarantee availability.

There are 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountain region with many experienced hikers earning the designation of an 'Adirondack 46er'. If you're looking for a simpler, local hike, Mt. Baker may be a good start depending on your physical condition. Approximately 1 mile up and 1 mile down, the base is minutes from the cabin and the summit offers views of the Village of Saranac Lake.
The Adirondacks is a destination for birders regardless of the season.
From and on Kiwassa Lake in the Adirondacks, fish for Northern pike, trout, bass, perch, whitefish and panfish. Whether you prefer fishing the waters of summer or the sub-zero ice that has formed mid-winter, Kiwassa Lake offers some of the best fishing in the Adirondacks. ESPN has also held its Great Outdoor Games Bass Fishing Tournament on the Saranac Chain of Lakes!
