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.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage. Property was as advertised and outside area was fabulous with plenty of seating. Owners live on the property, but rental space feels private. Will definitely rent here again.
A beautiful spot to recharge
We were in town for a wedding at Harpor's Vineyard and this was the perfect spot to stay the night. The property is gorgeous, both inside and out. Everything was well kept and clean. Our only wish is that we had more time to enjoy this place.
We stayed here for a friend's wedding at Harpor's Vineyard and it was amazing. The pictures do not do this property justice- it is gorgeous. Everything was very comfortable, casual, and thoughtfully designed and put together. The pergola, fire pit, pond, and outdoor space were truly inviting and felt like an oasis. The kitchen was very well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and the bathtub was a treat!. I wish we had an excuse to return- would be a perfect retreat from the city. We discovered the county park down the road, with trails for walking which was also beautiful.
What a great surprise this little barn was. We rented while attending a family wedding in Iowa. It was so cozy and clean plus the owner had pur hased snacks ks for is and had music playing in every room to wel ome us. We felt right at home. The decorations were just perfect and the relaxing atmosphere and scenery was just what we needed. Highly recommend.
great place to stay
Nice and quiet, very relaxing sitting outside reading and relaxing
Little Red Barn Slice of Heaven
Booking and Check In was a breeze, Welcome Snacks and calming music greet you, and the House Rules were clear and reasonable. The property was easy to find and the check-in process instructions were sent timely.
The property is decorated beautifully, amenities provided were generous. Our stay had us in and out but the time spent had us walking the garden area enjoying nature- peaceful is an accurate description of time spent in the little red barn. If you are around on a Saturday you need to check out the bakery in New Virginia- a 3 mile drive for some of the best pastries we’d ever had!
We would like to return just to enjoy the ambience and enjoy the outdoor space- again excellent little surprises around every corner.
