We had a very pleasant 1 night stay at the Bailey House. Great accommodations and breakfast was delicious! The hosts took their time in sharing the history of Pres. Grant, family and friends. they also toured us through Grant's childhood home and school. Wonderful visit, relaxing, we were made to feel very welcome! We highly recommend! Thank you, S. Cole

My husband and I had a lovely visit to this historic home. We greatly enjoyed our stay and left feeling like Stan and Nancy were close friends. Would happily stay here again if given the opportunity. Great breakfast and tour provided by Nancy.

Historic B & B

We stayed here after a Valentines Day Dinner at the Miranda-Nixon Winery. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood in a small historic town. The house is furnished with period furnishings, which adds to the appeal. The owners were very personable. We felt very comfortable and right at home there. We would definitely stay here again. The breakfast was delicious.

Wonderful time

The history of the home given to us by Nancy (the owner) was an extra bonus! We are taking family back with us in October.

The historic nature of the house and its furnishings were brought to life by our knowledgeable and personable host. The proximity of the B&B to the historic town square & the Grant homestead was another plus.

Brought back memories

My family lived in Georgetown, OH when I was a child. Staying at the Bailey House brought back so many memories. We called the owner before arriving and they said to just walk in, the door would be unlocked. Very friendly atmosphere and breakfast was great. I would stay again
