Well worth visiting. Ice cream was only a dollar. Coffee and Tea were free. We had an excellent tour guide that explained the history of the Baillie Property. There were lots of donated items that were for sale to help support the running of the Baillie Property.

Everyone loves the Baillie House. Why? Because it is beautiful, quirky, has history and the people. The people that volunteer there are so welcoming and always are offering some type of amazing refreshment. I ALWAYS try to make a point to stop here while visiting Merritt.

A cool place to visit and explore. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and have nice treats for you when you arrive. The Baillie Property is a nice place to have a picnic, stroll around, or just chill. Lots of parking and shade.

There were lots of pamphlets, maps and books about the area. They had souvenirs and some history of the area. The woman who assisted us was very friendly and knowledgable.

We stopped in Merritt for a bite of "fast food" on a road trip from Revelstoke to Vancouver. In the restaurant window was a sign indicating a free picnic area across the road. What a delight to find it was the back yard of the Baillie Property, complete with shade trees, picnic benches and historical buildings. We were encouraged to... More
