About James and Elizabeth Roach
James and Libby Roach. We're both the youngest of large families. We both grew up in Beattyville and chose to raise our family here. We've been married for 25 years and have two daughters, 23 and 20. I am an elected official(Property Valuation Administrator) in Lee County and James works in the construction business. We love the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
James and Elizabeth Roach purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why James and Elizabeth Roach chose Beattyville
We bought this 40 acre property because it is located close to our home. This 3rd generation family farm had been carefully cared for by our neighbor 'Bill' who lived a long life there. When he passed away in 2009, we purchased it from his family. We think of the property as 'Bill's Place', therefore we named it that. Bill was a real character in our small town and will not be easily forgotten. It didn't take long to realize how peaceful 'Bill's Place' was. We decided to remodel his home into the beautiful cabin it is today, and share it with others. The property is like many in our area. It was home to Bill's family where he and his siblings were raised by living off the land. There is evidence of the original homestead still there. The lawn has many fruit trees, planted by Bill. The barn wood on the walls of the upstairs in the cabin was taken from Bill's old barn. There is a picture of the barn hanging upstairs. We found heirloom, garden seeds in the barn from years ago. I was told by Bill's sister, Abby, that the rose in the front yard was brought from the original homestead and before that from another old homestead. She ask me to take care of her mother's rose. James and I feel like we are the caretakers of this wonderful property for now and will pass it on just as the family before us. The property's history shows it's self every time we are there. We feel honored be part of it.

Secluded and beautiful
We loved our stay - the cabin is quiet and cozy and close to all of the activities around Red River Gorge. The hot tub was fabulous! We are already planning to gather some friends and family for another trip to this beautiful property!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We've made many wonderful memories there and love that others are too! Thank you so much for coming.
Great cabin, very clean. Had everything we needed.
Very nice and clean cabin. In a great location, my son and I had a wonderful time hiking in near by Red River Gorge. Owners were great.
Beautiful cabin and very friendly owners
Peaceful cabin that was beautiful and Libby and James are super helpful and hospitable. So much better than other cabins I've stayed at. They do what they can to make your stay feel like your home away from home.
It's so good to hear that our guests feel at home while staying at our cabin! We have really enjoyed creating a place for our guests that is relaxing and a place to make lasting memories. We can't thank our guests enough for choosing our cabin for their stay!
Lovely cabin with all the amenities
We really enjoyed our stay at the country cabin in Beattyville. The front porch with all the rocking chairs was so delightful, and we loved having access to all the outdoor seating options, bonfire area, grill, and more. Plus the surprise of having free bicycles available to use was great! The Air Conditioner also worked great -- which was a must on during the hot days we were there. Only negative was all the wasps/bees that fly around the cabin -- particularly in the front -- which made it a little less comfortable.
Perfect location great cabin
We came here to climb and this cabin was close to Miller Fork, PMRP and roadside but still had the get away vibe and privacy of cabin in the woods. Hot tub was perfect and the beds were comfy.
Cozy, peaceful get-away
My family loved our stay at the cabin. The cabin is quaint and cozy; just as we wanted. The property is large and private. I felt safe allowing my children to run around and explore. We built a large camp fire and enjoyed making s'mores. The hot tub was relaxing. The water pressure in the cabin was not the best. The cabin was very clean and decorated nicely. We hiked the Red River Gorge and went to Natural Bridge. It was a great extended weekend. We will be back!
It's wonderful to hear that families are enjoying their stay at our cabin. It's a great place to make lasting memories. We have since repaired the water pressure problem and it works great again. We appreciate our guests so much! Thank you for coming!
