My boyfriend and I came to the Bailey House to celebrate our 7 year anniversary of us being together. For years I had staying at a Bed and Breakfast on my "bucket list" and we finally did this past weekend. All I can say is it was absolutely AMAZING! The house was just so beautiful with such a great layout....

We just spent a lovely one night stay at The Bailey House. We were very impressed with the friendliness of John as he greeted us and showed us the house and our room, the Bailey Room on the first floor. The room has a HUGE whirlpool tub! The house itself is beautiful. The grounds are beautiful too. We visited on...

My husband and I stopped in to pick up a brochure as I had read so many wonderful reviews about this B. and B. We were accompanied by my guide dog. We were greeted inside the door by a woman but then a man, I assume the owner, came in behind us and said "bring your dog outside". We said...

Bailey House is sincerely sorry for this chaotic event, which obviously has multiple points of misunderstanding. My wife and I were working in the yard, and our cleaning lady was vacuuming. We did not see the arrival of these potential guests, but suddenly heard our dog frantically barking and raced to the open front door where we could see two...

We were looking for a close-to-home getaway (we live in lake county, IL) to celebrate my boyfriend's 30th birthday and we settled on the place that most Illinois residents do in the summer...Lake Geneva. Everything thing in town was either booked or way out of our price range. Fortunately, I found The Bailey House which was just a short drive...

We had a wonderful weekend at the Bailey House in the Bailey Room overlooking the beautiful crystal clear in-ground pool and perfect country gardens. We never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast with such luxurious living. Karen is such a fantastic cook and presents a most beautiful fulfilling breakfast to last you through to dinner, John will mesmerize you with...

My husband and I took an extended weekend away, and we are so glad we chose the Bailey House. We wanted to go to Lake Geneva, but after considering options in Lake Geneva, we found this place, which was slightly less expensive, very close to Lake Geneva shopping and restaurants, with all the peacefulness we were looking for. The tranquility...

I just returned from a lovely weekend spent at the Bailey House. In theory B&Bs sound like a good idea but I'm usually a little nervous about trying one out in case it isn't a good fit. This place got great reviews for the area so I figured that it was worth a shot. We were not disappointed at all....

Our first bed and breakfast experience and we LOVED it! John and Karen catered to our every need (including special dietary needs for breakfast). We loved the pool in the back yard, the hammock, the jacuzzi in the room and the ambiance of the house. Everything was clean and there was such attention to detail - pillows and a throw...
