“Fantastic Cabin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I rented Cabin 7 for a nice Valentine's Day weekend. What a great time we had. The cabin was everything an old log cabin should be. With the exception of the bathroom it was pretty spacious. In fact, the bathroom would have to be the worst part about the place, and it is not something we took issue with, I'm just trying to think of the least favorite part really. It is small but not uncomfortable and long hot showers are not going to happen. The shower is a small tile floor and wall shower. Also the door is one of those accordian sliding things like in a camper. Not a big deal though. The kitchen is big enough for 2 people to move around in easily and it has some shelves, drawers and cuboards, a small 4 burner gas stove and oven, microwave, mini fridge / freezer, can opener, coffee pot, small table with 2 chairs and a nice big deep sink. Counter space is a bit limited but I did not have any trouble preparing meals. You do have to bring all of your own pots, pans, dishes, cups and silverware (also coffee filters). The bedroom had enough room to put your bags and suitcases where they did not get in your way and allowed easy walking access all around the bed. There was also a nightstand on one side of the bed with a lamp and alarm clock, a rocking chair with an extra quilt on it on the other side of the bed and a huge mirror mounted on the wall at the foot of the bed by the doorway. The bed was a little soft for my taste but not old or beat up. The living room has a very nice stone fireplace, a stand with a 13 inch TV with built in DVD player, a small standwith a lamp on it, a couch, a glass coffee table and a wodden gliding chair. There is a stack of DVD's there as well but it was mostly horror movies for some reason. Each room has a light in the ceiling with a wall switch, There were extra outlets in the bedroom and living room for anything else you may bring with you and charging phones and things. I brought a small humidifier with me because we had the fireplace going all weekend. The fireplace was great and NO smoke came back into the cabin. There was also no smoke smell in the cabin. The heat is radiant heat in the floors and this worked very well. It seemed to be prominent in the bathroom and the bedroom, in both places the floors were actually quite warm which was a nice feeling when you got out of the shower and out of bed. There are also radiators behind the couch and there is a plug in tower heater in the closet in the livingroom. We did not need the extra heater, even in the mornings when the fire had been out for hours the temperature was comfortable. We got about 10 inches of snow and it got down to 16 degrees at night and we were still very comfortable, the fireplace really made it nice in there though. There is a small wood shed outside and fire wood is all you can burn for $5 a day which is crazy cheap. If you pay cash it is free which is just nuts. We burned from friday night until we went to bed late saturday night. On to cleanliness, this place was spotless when we got there. Not a speck of dirt on the floors and carpets. The bathroom was pristine. The stove, fridge and microwave were spotless. The bed sheets, towels, washcloths and dishrags were all freshly laundered. There was dish soap, hand soap and little hotel style bars of soap provided. No cobwebs or dust to be found anywhere. The place could not have been cleaner. We only found one bug the whole weekend and my girlfiend can spot a bug the size of a pin head from across a room so there were no bug problems in this cabin. Overall, we had a great weekend. Cabin 7 is back away from route 40, there was no noise problems from the house beside us, we were mostly surrounded by woods, and it was very pretty ouside the cabin. Some of the other cabins are right along the highway so this may be a problem if you are a light sleeper and they don't have the same scenery around them but we walked around and checked them out and they all looked to be very nice outside and what we could see throught the windows looked nice as well. The owners are also very nice and told us about all the reseraunts and sights nearby. They even provide you with a big firestarter log to get the fireplace going. All of this cost me $186 total for the weekend. If you are looking for room service, 100 channels and hottubs you will be disapointed, If you are looking for a nice, clean, cozy rustic cabin experience this place will exceed your expectations.

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!

We stayed at Leber's for the first time for our weekend of whitewater rafting and touring Falling Water and Ohiopyle. We were with another family who had a young daughter. We found Leber's cabins to be clean and cozy. We also liked the fire ring outside and the fact that there was a coffee maker. It is close to area attractions. The downside is that it is right on Route 40 and, as the other reviewers mentioned, is noisy most hours of the day. If a quiet night's sleep and/or peaceful evening by the fire is your priority, this is not the best place to stay. However, my family slept fine (the other family bought earplugs and slept with them). One other criticism is that they do not provide any utensils or even cups for drinking the coffee. Bring paper cups, bowls, utensils etc. if you plan to prepare any meals there.

Wanting to get away for the weekend to hike, bike and whitewater raft in Ohiopyle State Park, we reserved a cabin at Lebers for $83 a night a couple weeks in advance. Since it was prime leaf viewing in PA, there were only cabins with fireplaces but no furnaces left. We were told that we would have to cancel 72 hours out if we were not coming. As our weekend away got closer, the weather forecast became more and more ominous. Lebers did call us and offer a cabin with heat due to a cancellation. We arrived early evening on Friday. The park was deserted due to the 35 degree weather and constant rain. We checked into our cabin. The cabin could be considered spartan and tired at best. It was not clean with mold in the fridge and shower stall. The worst part was our cabin was about 50 feet from Route 40, a very busy truck route through the area. All night the traffic zoomed by. The fireplace was beautiful though. There is cable tv. The kitchette did have a stove, micro and mini fridge but no dishes, pots or utencils (they did tell us this in advance). Carpet was stained and torn. On Saturday, we visited Kenntuck Knob (10 minutes from the cabin) and tried to hike in the freezing rain. We finally gave up and decided to go home since snow was expected. We called Lebers to let them know we would not be staying. They were kind enough to only charge us for the one night.
