Our Barn Is In The Country Surrounded By Corn Fields And Gorgeous Landscaping
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.

wonderful week in Iowa!
Very clean, neat, cozy. Outside was beautiful with flowers, cut grass, pond, etc. Would stay again anytime!
Bailey’s Barn is so well cared for & provides everything you could need. We stayed for a family birthday and had a great time. Holly answered any questions we had. The outside is beautiful & peaceful. Beds are comfy & the claw foot tub is a nice bonus! Looking forward to staying again!
Perfect retreat setting
My goal was to get away in less than an hour from Des Moines for personal and business planning. This location is perfect for that. I could go outside by the pond, relax on the outdoor furniture. If my family was with me, we totally would have used the fire pit! Plenty of space. Love the soaker tub and everything I needed to make meals with the food I brought with me. If you want to watch tv, there’s that too but I used it to listen to music. I hope to come back on an annual basis! Perfect!
Relaxing Country Getaway
Everything about this property was wonderful and relaxing...I would definitely stay here again!
What a perfect place for our family to gather for an Easter weekend! Beautifully decorated and clean, clean, clean. This is a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful farm setting. Superb outdoor areas beautifully landscaped for gathering and relaxing. Bonus was a great old golden retriever!
Stop over stay when visiting Des Moines
Wanted a place to stay out of town before a hectic weekend in Des Moines. Found a true gem of a place in the Barn. Small interior space, every inch is put to good use making it seem much larger, but most importantly has all the space you need to relax, feel comfortable, and feel connected with the people you are traveling with.
The second multiplier in terms of space is the outside living areas that come with the Barn. Very Iowa scenic, serene, and inviting.
If you are looking to just get away and decompress...... The Barn is a most excellent choice.
It is isolated ..... back to the get away decompress opportunity. Indianola is close enough for grocery runs etc.
So all in all a very unique extremely pleasant niche vacation rental opportunity.
