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.

Holly's barn was BEYOND! We are leaving this am, and very sad to go. All perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Holly's barn was fabulous! We just had a girls wknd there (5 high school friends who grew up near the QC), and we couldn't think of one thing to improve upon - except we would've liked to stay longer! It was clean, cozy, comfortable, and had EVERY amenity (nice linens, nice dishes, wood for fire pit, candles for pergola, you name it.) We sat by the fire pit for seven hours (really!) last night, and the stars, the wine, and the laughter couldn't have been better. There is NO WAY there is anything within 100s of miles as wonderful as this barn - we give it 6 stars out of 5!

Attention to Detail

  • 5 of 5

Everywhere you look, it showed that someone cares! This has to be the most beautiful place we have ever had the privilege of renting. The impression you get when you get out of your vehicle and see the large outdoor area says, "welcome and relax!" The remodeled barn was just amazing and so tastefully decorated. From gazing at the stars at night through the skylights, to waking up to see the beautiful sun rise, drinking coffee under the pergola, taking pictures of all the beautiful flowers, fixing meals in the cute kitchen, reading in the peaceful outdoor area, and taking drives in the beautiful countryside, made for a perfect weekend.

Excellent!

The barn was even more adorable than the pictures! We especially loved the outdoor space. It was a perfect space for our girls weekend. We hope to come back again soon.

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This place seems in the middle of nowhere, but is located close to Madison County and Des Moines. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is your place. The pictures can not do justice to the amazing job that has been done to renovate this old barn in to a BEAUTIFUL place. I saw no reason not to give this place 5 stars; especially since I have very high standards!

Charming & beautifully decorated little barn. Relaxing and inviting grounds.

  • 4 of 5

There isn't much I can say about this charming little place that we didn't like. It was perfect for our family to stay during our family reunion which was only 5 min away. Our family from Australia was really impressed with the set up of this barn and it's decor. Comfortable beds including the sofa sleeper. Very clean and it had everything we needed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a great seating area outside where you can enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning. Quiet and peaceful. We would have loved to enjoy the evenings out there but we were out most of the day to be at our family reunion events. Loved the sliding bathroom doors, very modern, but this type of door did not provide the privacy needed for a bathroom. Otherwise, everything else was just perfect and would highly recommend this place.
