Gardens are nice. The git shop is well stocked We had tea on the veranda of the Milner House and it was very nice. They have a lot of jams and they bake good scones. The grounds themselves were beautiful. I can't image how nice it would be other seasons. There are some sequoias that are breathtaking. Was even a... More

What a lovely surprise to discover the Historic Milner House in Milner Gardens and Woodlands. Beautiful walk through the gardens and woodlands and scenic views of the mountains and ocean. Even served Tea and Scones in the Dining Room and Back Veranda - was a special afternoon with a wedding on the lawn of Milner House.

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

Milner Gardens and Woodland is an historic waterfront estate in Qualicum Beach that offers a huge variety of activities for all ages. Beautiful woodland walks, waterfront vistas, spectacular gardens. The Shoots with Roots program is awesome.

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.
