Best Motorcycle Rides in West Virginia

The mountain highlands in the state of West Virginia are home to countless mountain motorcycle rides as the state falls entirely within the Appalachian Mountain range. Harman’s is located only 12 miles from Seneca Rocks in the Seneca Rocks/Spruce Knob National Recreation area. Seneca Rocks is one of the starting points for some of the best motorcycle touring in West Virginia.

We welcome motorcyclist to our luxury log cabins. Best of all, each cabin is equipped with a private outdoor hot tub, the ideal amenity after a full day in the saddle.

Our location in Hopeville Canyon with spectacular views of rock cliffs and the winding North Fork River make Harman’s a favorite lodging in West Virginia.

Our upstream property is accessed by a very level gravel packed road. Log cabins #9 to #15 are located on level ground. Log cabin(s) #16, #18, #20 are on an incline and accessed by a gravel road. Cabin #16, #18 and #20 are some of our most popular cabins. If you choose to stay at either of these luxury log cabins, a short walk will be necessary to access your cabin.
