The Bailey House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a Greek Revival brick home built in 1830. The three story house features four large pillars in front and a large central hall with winding staircase. The spacious rooms have Federal-style mantels, woodwork and original ash flooring. The Bailey House offers small town friendliness,in an historic area, and a full breakfast to start the day. Museums, art gallery, antique shops, and gardens all within comfortable walking distance. Private tours of Ulysses S. Grant's Boyhood Home available. Hiking and bike trails nearby. In 2007 the stone wall in front of the house was repaired and many artifacts were found that are now on display. The wall was probably built with stone U.S. Grant and his father hauled to the site.

Brought back memories

4.0 on June 30, 2014

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

This home is the pride of the Purdy. Perfectly situated for "all things Grant" tour. House is comfortable and beautiful. Bed quite comfortable. Amenities were perfect. Enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Great Stay

We mailed a card in; but our 5 out of 5 review didn't show up! We got two adjoining rooms. Very comfortable. The breakfasts were great. The first day's breakfast included nice fresh fruit. I couldn't eat mine as I'm alergic to bananas. The next day - no bananas!!! The Purdy's were awsome hosts. We felt right at home and will be back. Lisa, Chuck and Robert
