5/5 Excellent

Legit log cabin escape w epic riverside hot tub
I thought I was renting a regular person’s getaway, but this turns out to be cabin number five for the Cheat River Lodge, which is fine but it just messed with my expectations a little. Even though I’ve been to Ohiopyle a lot, Elkins was different and we had a lot of fun in our two night stay exploring the area. The info provided by the owners was very useful. Check out the natural spring by Bear Heaven Campground and the lookout tower on Bickel Knob. The cabin was loggish on the outside and in, and the hot tub was so cool right next to the river

5/5 Excellent

Great Cabin!
Beautiful location for an amazing cabin! Hot tub is great and the river is awesome! Very helpful and friendly staff. A very nice place to stay and get away from the world.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location
This is a beautiful cabin located directly on the river. We have stayed multiple times and plan to go back soon!

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely beautiful!
The location is absolutely spectacular. You can't ask for a more beautiful place to visit for some peace and quiet. The cabin was a great size for us. The beds are definitely firm so be prepared for that. There's definitely some much needed tlc that should be addressed but I hope that this place will be around for us to visit again. Even with the little things that need to be done I'd stay here again without question.

5/5 Excellent

Great place
Thank you so much, we enjoyed our stay. It was very quite and cozy. Great location, close to ski resort and waterfalls. Attentive stuff. Thank you and Happy New Year!
