We stayed 10/3-10/4 with another couple at the end of our wine tour and chose the Bailey House to finish it off. John and Karen really made the the experience special by chatting with us while we ate our delicious and bountiful breakfasts. Breakfast is served at 9 but we found ourselves at the beautiful table well past 10 visiting... More

We stayed in the Pinckney Room 9/6 and 7. We typically stay at Bed and Breakfast and we would put Bailey house in our top category. Hosts spent a lot of time orienting us to the area with events and attractions in the area. John helped us arrange a boat ride (with a discount), and gave us a map with... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Bailey House, warmly welcomed by John and Karen, the owners. Turns out that it was the perfect spot to watch my husband and his friend go past both on bikes and run in the Lake Geneva Triathlon. The start/finish of the race was down the street. Karen even brought my breakfast... More

Our room (the only first-floor guest room) was quite large, perhaps the largest we've ever encountered in a bed and breakfast. In addition to the comfortable queen-sized bed and several tables, there were an upholstered arm chair and a sofa, both quite comfortable. The en suite bath had both tub and shower, and a "medicine cabinet" over the sink provided... More

I’ve worked in hotels for 15 years and the BnB experience is always a welcome change during my travels. I opted for a last minute getaway before returning school and work. I was fortunate enough to find a two-night stay at the Bailey House and looked forward to my first Lake Geneva experience. Our confirmation email stated a 3AM check... More

From the time we were greeted by John (holding Barney) with a cheerful hello to when we had to say goodbye we felt so welcomed. We had a lovely conversation with John and Karen over a delicous breakfast of Eggs benedict - the best ever - and fresh fruit and a home made muffin - I can't believe I ate... More

If your looking for somewhere to stay that is cozy and comfortable then this is the place for you. We were greeted by John when we walked in and got the tour of the house, then he lead us to the kitchen for fresh baked cookies! He then gave us a map of the area and printed out all the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to the Bailey House. The home is well maintained with lovely landscaping and well appointed rooms. We were fortunate to stay in the Smythe suite, which has a large sunroom with double jacuzzi off the main bedroom. The main bedroom also had a nice gas fireplace. We stayed in late April which is a... More

The best thing I can say about the Bailey House is it is truly a bed and breakfast. John and Karen have a lovely home with a rich history and serve a “Food Network” worthy breakfast. My wife and I have stayed at quite a few B&B’s over the years. While accommodations have been good to great, the breakfast part... More
