About Holly Bailey

Hello, we are Troy & Holly Bailey from New Virginia IA. We are transplants from Maryland that moved to this beautiful state in 2006. We dairy farmed in Maryland and moved to Iowa to partake in its more laid back, less crowded atmosphere and get our hands dirty with the rich black soil that covers the state.

Holly Bailey purchased this barn in 2011

Why Holly Bailey chose Iowa

We needed a place for family and friends to stay when they came to visit so we turned our barn into a rustic hideaway that we thought others would enjoy too. And they do. The only complaints we get from our guest is that they don't want to leave.

What makes this barn unique

The landscaping is always changing here between a field full of soybeans or corn to the north ,a pergola covered in blooming wisteria, or tulips everywhere in the spring,how about the smells of the lavender that draws the butterflies to its purple luster,the birds always singing a song in the bushes and vines as they make their way to vibrant red birdboxes filled with chirping babies. The trees that shade you on a hot day as you relax in your chaise and catch an afternoon nap. Maybe you all but fell asleep getting a massage outdoors while you take in all these sounds and smells. (we have a massuse that comes and gives massages here at the barn) in the winter you can curl up by the fireplace with your cocoa ,watch the sun rise while you sip your cup of joe,watch the stars twinkle above your head as you gaze out the sky lights ,catch up on movie time, remember what its like to relax and enjoy life.

lil piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Holly's lil hideaway! There were all the comforts of home, and loved all the special lil details in the decor. It was so relaxing sitting outside for coffee, but unfortunately it was too breezy for a fire during our stay. Looking forward to trying it out on our next visit. Grounds are beautifully landscaped, the bed was comfy, and we over packed on our necessities. Holly had thought of everything we would need. We only encountered 2 problems while we were there 1- We didn't want to leave and 2- How soon can we book our next stay? It was truly a great 30th anniversary/birthday weekend getaway!

Awesome Unique Getaway Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our girls weekend in September.

Loved everything about this marvelous place. The outside is spectacular with all the gardens and cozy sitting areas. Great place to just sit relax and visit with friends. The flowers reminded me of my mother's gardens-unique. Everything in bloom. Oh, and the pond. Lovely touch and added to the relaxing atmosphere

The barn accommodations are as pictured. Very inviting and comfy. great sleeping accommodations

For those who cook you'll be amazed at all the appliances. It had everything we needed. And, several of us love to cook. And, most importantly it was stocked with basic items for cooking salt, pepper, oil, sugar,etc. It also had good morning treats - coffee and cereal. Yummmmm.

I really recommend this place.

Another great stay at Bailey Farms!

  • 5 of 5

Us girls got together for a relaxed weekend away. This was our second stay at Bailey Farms. It really is a gem hidden in the rural Iowa countryside! The barn is cozy and quiet with everything we needed. We spent our evenings around the fire pit, played games around the kitchen table and made our own meals while we were there. Holly had fresh cut flowers decorating our rooms as well...what a nice touch! Thank you for letting us make memories at Bailey Farms :-)

Amazing

  • 4 of 5

We came down from Minnesota on a girls weekend to visit the cover bridges, and needed a place to stay, this barn came up and looked so inviting even if it was a little out our way we decide to book it, we are so glad we did, it was as charming as the photo showed, plus. So relaxing, clean, everything we would of needed was there. Happy travelers we were, if I ever was in the area again would stay here and would for sure recommend it, thank you Baileys for the great place you rent out!

Wonderful experience

We loved the obvious care that has been taken to details. Very restful time spent at the farm. We would gladly have stayed longer had our schedule allowed.
