One of the gems of Eastern Kentucky lies serenely hidden away about eight miles west of Beattyville on Hwy 52. Lago Linda Hideaway is a 410 acre preserve that accomodates a broad range of visitors to these magical mountains and mysterious river valleys. If you want to “rough it” in a tent, step up and bring your home with you in an RV, or just move in to one of the expertly decorated cabins, Linda and Doug Black are ready to accomodate you. Whether seeking romance, solitude, inspiration, or adventure, the 15 miles of trails, picturesque lake and abundant wildlife are there to enhance the experience. And your hosts, a unique and interesting pair, set a standard for service that is second to none.
Linda from Liverpool England, met Doug at a sailing club in Washington DC on one of her trips to America. They were married in 1992 and Linda bought into Doug’s dream to develop a piece of property he owned in Eastern Kentucky. They moved into his log cabin home and have been sharing their land and themselves with others since.
The name Lago Linda Hideaway grew from two separate incidents: First, Doug and Linda built a dam to catch water from two mountain streams to form their lake. As it was filling, Doug announced the lake should be called “Lago Linda,” meaning Linda’s Lake. Years later a visiting Berea student documenting trails and wildlife commented, “it is a perfect hideaway”. Thus, Lago Linda Hideaway was born.
One has only to visit their website,http://lagolinda.com/ , to see how these two very special people truly cherish their little piece of Appalachia and relish sharing it with others.
