Looking for somewhere I can land a secluded cabin this summer.. the wife asked to go on a motorcycle trip. Looking for somewhere with decent roads, a place to truly get away and isn't crapping their pants about COVID. If you don't wanna share your spot because of narcs, hit my PMs please!

I'll be coming from Columbus area and willing to head in any direction.

How far you looking to go?

I'm from PA and my wife and I regularly patronize Lazy Lane Cabins in Hocking Hills, Ohio - about an hour south of you (to their check-in anyway, their cabins are sometimes another 20 minutes away). Beautiful sweeping countryside, small-town feel, and the cabins are immaculate. Most of them are very secluded, rustic styling with modern amenities, and can be rented for what you would pay for a hotel room at the beach. Lots of bikes at the local state parks and some great hiking through Old Man's Cave or Ash Cave. I also highly recommend hitting up Lake Hope (about an hour and a half from you) - much nicer than Lake Logan with a beach and a scenic ride.

Only word of caution would be to research a cabin thoroughly. The wife and I have always been on 4 wheels when we go there and I can tell you that there have been one or two that you'd never want to take a bike. The last one we went to had washed out driveway with a few big dips and the last 50 yards were a 45* incline on stone - you'd definitely lay your bike down.

If you venture out of Ohio and maybe into Northern KY, Boone County, there is a place worth visiting. Rabbit Hash, KY. They get some headlines occasionally cause they elected a dog as their mayor. Rabbit Hash is on several different historical registers and, until it burned down in, I think, 2016, it was noted for having the country's oldest continuously operating General Store. After the fire the General Store was rebuilt just the way it used to be and is again in operation. When you walk into the General Store you will feel like you traveled back to around 1850 or so. And you can get a cold beer out of their cooler. Several other very old buildings there and the place is located right on the river almost directly across from a casino. Lots of good riding in that area and on a warm, sunny weekend there are literally hundreds of bikers that ride there and just congregate. On weekends they have the grills going and you can get a good brat or burger and sides. Just a neat place to see and hang out at for a couple of hours. I believe there is a bed and breakfast in Rabbit Hash and it is a rural setting but I don't know about other accommodations close by. Rabbit Hash is about 2 or 2 1/2 hrs. from my home in Louisville and we usually ride up there once or twice in the summer. So, nothing really outstanding there but mark it on your map and if you get anywhere close to it be sure to ride there and check it out. You can google Rabbit Hash and get lots of info and a few videos.

Well... shoot, lol.

Come over our direction, then hahaha.
The Poconos in NE Pennsylvania are pretty secluded and scenic. Not sure what cabin rental companies are up there but the Poconos would definitely have some. Also, the wife really turned me on to searching AirBnB. Always check them first to see if they have what you're looking for before going to some company. You can usually find what you're after and for a lot cheaper.

i've been all over airbnb and most reviews seem to warn of bad driveways, 4wd, etc.
probably just gonna settle to not be at home and find a mandateless spot to get back to normal with normal people.
