About Luxury Camping at Baileys

Dear Mr and Mrs Bailey,
I wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much my son and I enjoyed camping at Luxury Camp Kestrel. We have been camping many, many times. We camped our way through the YMCA Indian Guides program, along with going on many a family camping outing. Of all the camp trips we have taken, especially weekend trips, this one was one of our most enjoyable and memorable. Having the camp already set us as it is, really maximized the time we could spend together doing fun things in and around your facility. Additionally, everything was clean and tidy. I’m already looking forward to our next trip to Bailey’s Palomar Resort!
Sincerely, David

Dear Baileys,
We had the pleasure of spending yet another wonderful getaway at your delightful Luxury Camp! The pristine natural environment is stunning, and so quiet and peaceful. We stayed in your romantic canvas Safari tent, on that large wooden deck overlooking the forest and it was a treat to arrive to that cozy setup and a comfortable bed, with everything provided! Falling asleep under the amazing starry sky, and waking up to the song of so many birds was enchanting. Once again, Baileys was great, and a luxurious camping experience that we will always treasure. We’ll be back soon!
Yours,
Andrea & Dean

About Cottages at Baileys
Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
We loved the cabin (it had everything we could have wanted & more).
We spent the day hiking in the state park, came back here and grilled and had a fire. It was PERFECT!
It is so beautiful and peaceful here. We hope to come back one day!
Thanks again,

Brad and Terri,
Wow! Mary and I had such a fantastic time visiting your resort! It was like nothing we’ve experienced. It was so much more than we expected.

When Brad found out I was celebrating my wife’s birthday he suggested the Cedars Cottage, upon arrival the fireplace was lit, additional atmosphere was provided by Terri, table set, and balloons announced Mary’s birthday, as we sipped wine in front of the stone fireplace, we retired to a cozy bed with an electric blanket that preheated our bed. Next morning we were treated to a walk about in the general store, complete with old post office, soda fountain, amazing.

Your great hosts and will cherish our great memories of Bailey’s and be back soon.

About Retreats & Reunions at Baileys

Dear Baileys,
Our Photographic retreat was a huge success mainly due to your help, the Carriage House is the perfect classroom, its full of natural light! With Terri as our field guide, my students were able to enjoy the amazing diversity, and the historic Dance hall gave us lots to work with.
Photo expeditions will be back!
Thanks,

Bailey Family,
We had a really wonderful time in the Historic Bailey House, the family reunion to end all reunions! We are from N. Carolina, to have snow falling was a much needed sight, we we’re all so happy. We’ve missed our own mountains. To be in S. California and find this gem was a real treat! We’ve rebooked our stay for next Dec. Thanks for the walks, talks, sky show, and just the family friendship you shared with us.Heartwarming to know people like you still exist.Sincerely,McNamara’s, Waite’s, Cordova’sSan Diego, CA

Dear Terri,
Our Scrapbook group had so much fun at our new retreat spot. Carriage House, Scrap book room, Awesome! Well lit, roomy, cozy, loved the bamboo floors, sliding window doors, facing in all directions to see the view of the forest. We relaxed, created, laughed, and got our groove on. What a great place to craft. Love the drive up loading area, and then to get to go into the Bailey House to relax and get a massage, perfection.

We will be back soon.

About Bailey House

Brad and Terri,
Thank you so much for letting us experience the Bailey House. It is absolutely wonderful, charming, and cozy. The upstairs bedrooms are wonderful!! We left $20.00 for the “Palomar Mountain” book, that Brad wrote. Loved the history of this area.

Thanks,

Dear Terri and Brad,
Don’t mean to be so familiar, but the two of you were so warm and friendly, I chose not to say Mr. and Mrs. Bailey.
I just wanted to thank you, on the behalf o my friends, for sharing your beautiful historic home with us. This the is the sixth year we have all taken a trip at this time of year, we all agreed that this on was the best ! I loved the “Rose Room” and was inspired by the beautiful handkerchief quilt on the bed. I used my mom’s old handkerchiefs to recreate one for our family.
Thank you very much, we will do this again.
