I haven't stayed here but have heard good things about the place and the owners.

Have stayed at the Marlinton motor inn, It's your basic small town motel , clean and reasonable. All sorts of great roads and attractions in the area. Cass railroad , radio telescope. Also good places to eat Rella's diner and The Hutte

I've been working on a site the past 2 years with info. Hope it gives you some ideas. Some sections are still empty, but I'm gradually filling them in.

Always looking for readers to send in photos and/or ride reports, so please think about submitting something when you get back. Thanks!

Years ago, wife and I were in the area and found this Golden Temple ( off the beaten path south of wheeling heading to 250 (south) to Moundsville.
Driving those roads they say brings you back in the 30s with houses and old cars on the roadside. It has it's own dose of twisty roads and thought I should come back riding, still dreaming of that day. Mind the slow trucks and gravel though...
Have a safe ride.

Matewan WV, you can ride WV, KY, and SW VA is only a few miles south. Best roads in the SE, of all types !

Hatfield & McCoy Inn, the owner & wife are the best, will treat you like family !

Great restraunt on site,............... Wingos !

6 of us advriders will be there in 2 days for 4 days of riding !
