The Baillee House is a historic house turned into an info center in down town Merritt, and I am so glad we stopped in (for ice cream:). It is very beautiful, surrounded by gorgeous gardens, and filled with super friendly and helpful people who care for the property, and for out-of-towners. They fixed my sweet tooth, gave me a great... More

Take a step back in time to see the display laid out inside this home. There are many antiques and stories of the beautiful Nicola valley.

Visited the bailie house and was greeted by very friendly volunteers that offered us a free drink and snack. The property has a cut little antique section and some old furniture for sale. The grounds are full of flowers and there are lots of places to relax! There is also lots of free tourist books and pamphlets!

Although there is a much bigger, regional, visitor info centre out on the highway this property houses a specific Merritt info centre. It is also a heritage property which you can get a tour of. All by donation. Also, a structure which houses a blacksmith type operation with vintage tools. A good discussion of it is found here: http://www.goldtrail.com/Site%20Pages/Baillie%20House.pdf

The uniqueness of the shop & history of how it came about. I didn't dislike anything about it. The people are very knowledge able & can inform you on any questions you may have.

We always drop by the Baillie House when travelling through Merritt. The staff are always friendly, helpful and informative. Don't be surprised if they offer you a coffee and freshly baked treat that has been dropped off by one of the local folk. Baillie House feels like a home away from home where you can check email, make a phone... More

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.
