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 New Virginia

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.

Best Thanksgiving ever.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights over Thanksgiving break and this was the best place for our family of 6. Kitchen was well stocked with staples and pots/pans and was very functional even to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner! We brought board games and our son's wii to play and everything was perfect! Holly even supplied the wood for a bonfire! Would book again!

Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Barn this weekend with my mother and my sisters for a ladies weekend away. The decor in the barn is on point for the season, so homey and relaxing. Everything you could possibly need is provided (aside from your food). And Holly is easily accessible for questions. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Barn is as charming as can be; love the interior decorating, the coziness of the living room, the beds/pillows were super comfy! Overall, could not have asked for a better place to stay and we plan on coming back again next year for our Sisters weekend!
