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.

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This rustic barn was in an ideal location to get away from the "hustle and bustle." We really enjoyed the peace and quiet along with the lovely outside sitting area. Holly has done an unbelievably outstanding job in decorating the inside of the house and the garden area is just beautiful. Even though we were out in the country, we encountered no pesky bugs. This is a great place to go for some relaxation, and there are many places to visit within 25 - 30 minutes for entertainment, food and site seeing. We highly recommend Bailey's farm house!

Wonderful hidden spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the barn to stay while attending a family wedding nearby. The location is remote, and the barn was a wonderful, peaceful getaway! Our only problem was that we were so busy with wedding activities that we didn't get to enjoy the spot as much as we would like.

We are already plotting a girl's trip, when we can spend more time at the barn and the beautiful grounds.

My 3-year-old great-niece was enchanted by the barn. Upon returning home, she asked her mother if she couldn't "sleep in the barn again."

Everything we could possibly need was there, and the decor is beautiful. It is a wonderful retreat!

Our favorite VRBO yet.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home base for Hinterland, and we'll be back for other visits to the Des Moines area. The barn was gorgeous; the grounds were perfectly peaceful. We drank coffee and enjoyed the flowers and fountains each morning and evening.

It was close to Ahquabi State Park, where we rented kayaks and enjoyed the lake. We had lunch at a cute Italian deli in Indianola, also close to the property.

Des Moines is about a half hour away, close enough to venture up for a morning at the Farmers Market and Sculpture Park.

The Baileys were available, but not intrusive. Everything was perfect.

Relaxation and Rest

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time--with six children under 13, relaxation doesn't come around very often ....this beautiful home was a true gift to us! We so admired all of your hard work inside and beautiful landscaping outside. You are very talented and we are very lucky to have found Bailey Farms. Can't wait to return!
