Lago Linda Hideaway 950 Blacks Ridge Road Beattyville, Kentucky 41311

Enjoy the quiet tranquility of the Kentucky countryside at Lago Linda Hideaway, courtesy of owners Doug and Linda Black. A geologist of considerable renown, Doug purchased this 410-acre retreat in 1969. He began construction on his log cabin home soon after, a project which extended over several years. Doug met Linda, a professional woman from Liverpool, England, at a sail club in Washington, DC. As unlikely as the match may have seemed, the two were married in 1992.

We cherish our little piece of Appalachian woods and we hope you will visit us to experience the peace and serenity at our Hideaway.

Together, they moved to Kentucky where they worked together to develop the land into a place they could share with others. One part of this project involved building a dam to catch the water from two mountain streams in order to form the property
