Staying at Bailey House combines comfort in a Historical setting and you cannot ask for a more friendly atmosphere than that provided by Nancy. We have returned to Georgetown numerous times and always stay with Nancy.

On the east coast it is not unusual to find homes that date to colonial times but finding one in Ohio was great. Nancy and Stan are wonderful hosts, knowledgeable about the area & Ulysses Grant, and serve a great breakfast.

The Bailey House B&B is a charming & historical place to stay. Our hostess, Nancy, was wonderful. We enjoyed hearing about the history of her family, who has owned it since 1876. We also enjoyed the history of US Grant :-)

My wife and I have known Nancy and Stan for nearly a decade now and we are always amazed by their friendliness, hospitality and willingness to make our stay a pleasant one. The rooms are spacious and furnished with interesting period pieces and the homemade breakfast in the formal dining room is nothing short of wonderful. In short, the rooms, service, value, cleanliness and dining were first rate!! Outstanding all around!!

We spent four nights at the Bailey House when attending a family reunion nearby. Our time there was perfect in every way--clean and spacious rooms, our own bath, a beautiful home in a lovely setting, excellent breakfasts, and an exceptionally gracious and knowledgeable hostess. Thank you, Nancy!
