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.

What makes this cabin unique

Visiting 'Bill's Place' will be a peaceful getaway from the hustle of life. It will force you to slow down and enjoy nature while enjoying all the comforts of home. The area offers something for everyone. Many of our guests are here to visit family and friends for a homecoming. Many enjoy the Wooly Worm Festival held annually in October. If you love old cars, you'll want to visit Beattyville for car shows, street cruise-in and old engine and tractor shows.

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!

Perfect getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for a group of 6 friends to getaway for the weekend. The hot tub was very clean and worked great. All the necessary grilling tools were provided, and there was even firewood to start a fire. A heads up that there isn't much privacy as 2 bedrooms are connected with the stairs to the upstairs area, but this didn't matter to us. The cabin was secluded enough to feel like a getaway without being too hard to get to. Very spacious land. Highly recommend!

This cabin was the perfect place for my family's fall trip!

  • 5 of 5

I was impressed from the ease of communicating with the owners to the cleanliness of the cabin. Every detail was considered in the comfort of Bill's Cabin. The property is beautiful and the children so enjoyed playing football in the day and fires at night by the fire pit. James and Libby, the owners have ensured every detail from decor to supplies and cleanliness are well maintained for their guests! We will definitely look to rent from them again on our next stay at the Gorge.

Peaceful and quiet; a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

James and Libby have created a wonderful home away from home. It allowed my sister and I to spend quality time together in a peaceful, quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The cabin was extremely cozy, and we wanted for nothing. The only suggestion we would make is maybe adding an extra mirror upstairs since there was just the one in the bathroom. But no big deal. Also, we loved observing all the wildlife. The deer and turkeys were abundant. Riding the bikes up and down Tip Top Road was great. Thanks, James, for fixing my sister's seat to make her ride more comfortable, and thanks to you both for replacing the broken DVD player so speedily. We will definitely recommend and hope to return in the future. Thanks, James and Libby, for everything!
