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

Beautiful, private, quiet, romantic, roomy

  • 5 of 5

Our get away from everyday huddle and bustle of life. It was rainy and cold but we had a great time, relaxing in front of the fire, in the hot rub, grilling steaks on the huge grill, and soaking in the claw foot tub. We enjoyed the deer in the am while drinking our coffee. We didnt get to use the picnic shelter or the fire pit but when,we return with family we definitely will. Definitely recommend this beautiful cabin to anyone. Owners are very nice. The propane tank was frozen and they came out within minutes to get us another one.

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!
