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

We have stayed at this beautiful inn so many times and it is such an experience!!! The house is spotless yet a very homey feel! It has so much character and so much charm. We have stayed in almost all rooms but the bailey is the best! All rooms are fully equipped with all the needs of home and so... More

For a special vacation get-away for our anniversary we chose this wonderful Bed and Breakfast called The Bailey House. We really enjoyed the hospitality, cooking, and friendly conversation. The grounds and accommodations were outstanding, as well. Just a delightful place to spend time in Williams Bay on Lake Geneva. We highly recommend it to everyone we talk with.

My husband and I just stayed at the Bailey House this weekend. We were planning on staying elsewhere. As he booked last minute, the hotel we had wanted ended up having no vacancy. We found this delightful establishment instead. And we are so very glad we did! Williams Bay is a lovely town about 3 miles from the hub bub... More

Spent last Friday night in Williams Bay, WI at the Baily House. John and Karen were very gracious hosts and served us a wonderful breakfast on Saturday morning. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful pool. It is a very peaceful place and the room was clean and the sunporch was a great place to visit. Also spent some time... More

We stayed here on our way to a concert at Alpine Valley. John greeted us on our arrival and first impressions were of a dedicated proprietor very proud of his establishment and very approachable. The property is immaculate and the rooms are large and very comfortable. Breakfast was at 9 AM and was another highlight of this couple. Karen is... More

I wasn't sure about staying in a Bed and Breakfast, but John and Karen made a believer out of me. My husband and I arrived a little later than we thought, but John and Barney their dog made us feel welcome right away. Karen came in to greet us, so friendly.
