A gem of nature, Milner Gardens is a nature woodland rather then a manicured garden such is Butchart Gardens in Victoria but if you time it right you can enjoy the beautiful display of Rhodos. Any season of the year this is a wonderful place for a stroll while learning about our own natural plants and trees, an education in... More

The friendly volunteers who helped shuttle us from the gate to the Milner Residence and the people who served afternoon tea were wonderful. It was a big garden by the oceanfront with vast rainforest area remained untouched. But what was most impressive was the simply but cozy afternoon tea at the elegant Milner house. With freshly brewed tea, warm scones... More

Liked everything about it including the reflective pool, the magnificent views, The Enchanted Steampunk Gnome Village by the Sea, the flora and fauna and the children's garden. The atmosphere is restorative, peaceful, friendly - and very enjoyable :-)

This is a wonderful place to stroll through a Douglas Fir Forrest. There are many trails to wander and reach the old house and gardens. High tea is served in the restaurant. The house and garden have been visited by The Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles And Princess Diana. The views over Georgia Strait are stunning. A beautiful place to... More

I'm not much of a Botanist but the wife's decision to spend a few hours in this tucked away woodlands revealed some surprising bites of history! For me the modelled after Ceylon Tea Estate bungalow was spectacularly beautiful in it's magnificent setting! The last minute offering of high tea at a very reasonable price by a troop of volunteer ladies... More

Peace, tranquility, elegance - this is the scene at Milner Gardens, as you have high tea in the Milner estate house overlooking the Great Lawn, with a view of the Salish Seas. The gardens were the dream of Veronica Milner and include over 400 kinds of rhododendrons. This place is well worth a visit.

We took the evening stroll through Milner Gardens in Qualicum Beach. The lights were lovely the cabins decorated in a way that transfers you back in time. The music in the tea room was wonderful and you could just feel the history. We can't wait until the spring when we plan to visit again to see all the gardens in... More
