We just got back from Leber's cabins and really enjoyed our stay! We were 15 minutes from everything that we wanted to do and paid around $86 per night for all 3 of us and our dog. What a deal! I will start by forewarning anyone considering Leber's Cabins....it is rustic, outdated, there are bugs, it is NOT a hotel. With that being said you can make a lot of great family vacation memories here! We loved the firepit. After each day of hiking, rafting, etc we would come back and make a fire and sit and talk. There are no phones, no cable TV, no wi-fi! So it is all about family time. Oh and wood was only $5.00 per night without a real limit. Normally you would pay $5.00 for a few logs at most places. There are two sides to this property located right off of Rt. 40. Cabins 3-6 are located on a side of the property near the pool. They do rent out grassy area around these cabins to other RV's. So it is not private and secluded. However, if you going with a large group renting multiple cabins it would be a great area. Cabins 1, 2, and 7 are located on the other side. Yes, cabins 1 and 2 are VERY close to rt. 40 and you will hear the traffic. However, if you are a sound sleeper it shoudl be fine. These two cabins are a little more secluded from other guests. Cabin 7 was ours and I LOVED IT! It is set back from the road and has a long drive. You cannot see any other guests. There are also two private residences between cabin 7 and the gift shop. We were fortunate enough to meet the very nice neighbor next to us and he was telling us that this property was built in the 30's in response to need for accomodations for those travelers stopping at the Dance Hall that was across the way (now a Traveler's Lodge). He also told us that the large ravine that our cabin was sitting on was actually a stop on the underground railroad! How cool is that? Right beside our cabin was a small path way between boulders and if you travel down behind the cabins you will find a cave that the slaves would hide in for the night. Now the interior of the cabin is extremely dated and there were some small things that need repairs. However, this comes with a rustic cabin experience. The overall feeling was so quaint. Eventhough it is not the Hilton, things were relatively clean and well kept. Warning: the kitchen has minimal storage and counter space. So keep meal prep to a minimum. However, the fire pit is great for outdoor cooking and we had a picnic table to prep on. The fridge is a mini-size, so bring a cooler for extra space. There was a coffee pot and microwave as well. The bathroom was tiny, but it actually became a fun game to see how all three of us could get ready in amongst each other. The pet policy is very liberal here. They only charged $3 per night for pets which is the best rate I could find. I was worried that we would find dog hair and mess on the carpets becuase of this. However, I found no such thing. It was good order. Now, there were barking dogs on the property at a guest cabin and a permanant residcence. We are dog people though, so it didn't bother us. However, if you are NOT a dog person this may not be the place for you. The owners also have 3 adorable dogs that stay in the office/gift shop with them as well. They were so well mannered though. Overall, this is a small family run business of older cabins. The prices are half of any other cabin that I found in the Ohiopyle area. You get a great value for what you get. However, you must compare this to a camping experience not the luxury place down rt. 40 that charges $400/night. Hope you enjoy Leber's Cabin as much as we did!
