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
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.

It pleases us greatly to hear that quests are enjoying their stay at our cabin. Our goal is to make them comfortable and hope they have a great time during their visit. We will continue to make improvements so it only gets better! We really appreciate our quests. James and Libby
We were in town over Thanksgiving for a climbing vacation. Cabin was great, comfortable beds, plenty of towels, and the hot tub was wonderful. Pretty location and not hard to find, even in the dark. 20 min from Miguel's, 10 minutes from MFRP climbing area. Only thing to note is 2 bedrooms are not private, and the one private bedroom has no sound privacy. But the bedrooms are separate from the kitchen and living area. We really enjoyed our stay.
This cabin is beautiful! We all loved staying here! Thank you Libby and James!
We loved everything about the cabin and property. James and Libby are awesome to work with. The cabin was so clean and comfy and we have stayed in many cabins and this one is one of our favorites. We enjoyed hiking the Gorge and coming back and relaxing in the wonderful hot tub. Lots of wildlife, we had deer and turkey visit us daily, what a treat! We hiked right on the property to and enjoyed exploring the history of the place. I have to say I think "Bill" would be proud at what you have done with the place, its amazing and we came back home fully restored and relaxed and ready to start our busy lives once again. We are already planning a return trip in near future!
Thank-you so much for such a great place to stay for a quick weekend getaway with friends. We visited both Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge in one day and this cabin was the perfect location in order to see both. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for an extremely clean, cute, and well-kept place for overnight trips. Thanks again!
This cabin was super cute and clean and very comfortable. We had a fantastic stay here and would love to come back someday!
