I am so glad that I chose BailiTeal For my first organized retreat. This has been a perfect weekend. Everyone in my group just loves it here. And to think that I have been driving by here for years and didn’t know what a wonderful experience was in store for me here. You have provided us with a wonderful weekend retreat. We enjoyed Canton, the two scrapbook stores, the food, the nature walk and we managed to get a lot of scrapbooking done. Thanks for making our stay a wonderful experience. I know we will be doing this again soon!

I’ve come to Bailiteal a couple of times a year to relax and have fun with a group of scrapbookers. Always thoroughly enjoy myself. Country air is so refreshing. Without worries and daily grind, I get so much accomplished on my scrapbooking project. As well as visiting, laughing and enjoying the company of my friends. The work area is by far the best we’ve ever had. I can hardly wait until my next visit.

Robin of Dallas, TX

This place is fantastic. Every meal was superb, so tasty! We loved the tables in the crop room and just really enjoyed the facility. You guys were fabulous hosts! We will jump at the chance to come back to your wonderful place. Thanks and keep up the great work!


This is my 3rd visit here for our scrapbook retreat. Each time has been equally as wonderful as the last. Thank you so much for your genuine hospitality, warm hearts, comfy beds and great meals! I look forward, as always, to our next trip!

Ammanda of Valley View, TX

I had a wonderful time here while scrapbooking with friends. I know everyone loved you place. We checked out all the rooms where we scrapbooked and in the barn. Everything is so neat and you’ve thought of everything anyone could possibly need. We enjoyed the walking trail. I should have done that about 10 more times! The meals and hospitality were our of this world. We have already started planning for a return visit. Thanks for everything.

I had such a wonderful time here. It is so quaint and old-fashioned — made me feel right at home. The meals were fabulous!! It is so quaint and old-fashioned – definitely be coming back for more scrapbooking and relaxation. Thank you so much!!

Jenifer from Denton, TX

Our group of 12 was not tricked this Halloween while staying at Bailiteal Farm, but treated to a most enjoyable stay. We loved all the different themes in the bedrooms, especially the Birds’ Nest where I stayed on my visit for the first time in the Canton area. Our food was delicious, and the hosts were charming! I can hardly wait to return in the spring – if we can go that long without shopping at the Trade Days

Diane of Florence, TX

Thank you once again for our stay at Bailiteal. As always, we have had a wonderful time and the food was super. We’ll probably make reservations to come again before we leave. We get lots of quilts made in the sewing room.
Mittie of Athens, TX

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality, great food, and wonderful accommodations. We love to come here with Suzy’s Quilt Shop “quilt til you wilt” retreat. This is a great place to spend time quilting and piecing but also reflecting and getting your perspective back. We need these respites.
Sharon of Plano, TX

Staying here at Bailiteal Farm was a wonderful experience. Such warm hospitality, comfortable accommodations and delicious food! Our quilt guild has chosen a wonderful place to have our retreat. As a 1st timer here and a recent transplant from Idaho, I will sing praises of the past few days to everyone.

Joni of Paris, TX

This is my 3rd visit and I still love Bailiteal as much as the first visit. It is such a pleasure to be in such peaceful surroundings. Your efforts, again, are to be praised for making our crop retreats so enjoyable.

Betty of Corsicana, TX

Thank you so much for your hospitality. This is such a beautiful place. I have enjoyed my stay here more than you could possibly imagine. Spending an entire weekend scrapbooking with people I enjoy being around is great, but getting to stay in such a beautiful room, being served wonderful breakfasts and enjoying the beauty of it all made it the best weekend I have had in a very long time. Thanks again for everything. I look forward to coming back really soon!!
Robin from College Station, TX

You have such a beautiful place here. I get so excited when the time grows near for our yearly visit. It’s so peaceful here and the food is excellent and the accommodations are great! I know that you both work so very hard to keep this place great the way it is! I hope to be back again next year.

Quilting Retreat from Suzy’s – my first retreat! It was exceptional – the food and hospitality wonderful. So relaxing and I got 2 projects done. The room and lighting were fabulous. Look forward to returning to this relaxing oasis.
Barbara of Garland, TX

This is my third retreat at your lovely place. Each time just gets better and better. You have gone out of your way to make my croppers have an enjoyable experience. This is my favorite place and the only B&B I will bring scrapbook retreaters to. I am looking forward to spending many more weekends here with the different stores. Thank you both for making me feel so at home at my home away from home.

My very first B&B Scrapbooking Retreat and I loved it! Really felt great to get away and be able to work on my books without interruption of family, chores & tasks … But yet to be able to take a break and enjoy the serenity & peacefulness of nature. Saturday morning I sat on the porch and enjoyed the quietness, surrounded by the trees & watching the birds was very relaxing and the shade was sufficient enough to bring a light breeze and distract the heat. Beautiful place to get away and visit again & again & again!
Carmen of Duncanville, TX

Once again we enjoyed a weekend of warm hospitality, great food, and time to work on scrapbooks. Thanks so much for all you do to make us feel welcome and cared for.

Pat of Rockwall, TX

This is my 4th time to enjoy a scrapbooking weekend here and find this lovely place to be good for my limited scrapping talents! I get so much done while I’m here and always come away feeling nurtured and pampered. Everything about the farm is delightful – the proprietors, the accommodations, the scenery, the scrapbooking building, and of course the FABULOUS FOOD. I hope to come again and again.

Linda of Fairview, TX

What a special hideaway you have here! It has been a breath of fresh air – especially not having to lift a finger – You truly spoil us! I have enjoyed my 1st scrapbook retreat & my stay at BailiTeal. Thank You for your outstanding Hospitality & Your scrumptious recipes!

Crystal of Richardson, TX

This was our third visit to BailiTeal, and we enjoyed it more than ever! It is such a treat to come here and sew and eat – leaving all our cares and worries behind for 3 days. We always look forward to your wonderful meals! The sewing room is so large and comfortable – such a pleasure to work in. This was our first stay in the Rose Room, and it was so nice.
Sherry of Summer, TX

What a beautiful place you have. You are special people for opening your home to others. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. The food was most delicious. The beds were most comfortable. Thank you for making my time here a most memorable one.

Julie of Tyler, TX

Well we are back. It has been two and a half years since our last retreat. The food is still great! The rooms are wonderful. Thank you for taking such good care of us. Thanks for another fun-filled retreat.
