Stopped in Merritt enroute to Kamloops. Arrived at the property near noon. Asked for a tour only to be told, fellow staff member was on lunch, we would have to wait. We went for lunch only to come back to find that now this staff member needed lunch! We didn't wait, no tour unfortunately.

Ice cream for sale. A great place to enjoy your lunch in the garden. A great place to shop and explore in the basement. Did I mention the free tour available.... More

After an unpleasant visit to the visitors center on the highway 97/ coquihalla junction it was a nice change to have knowledgeable professional staff help us and give us tonnes of information on the valley, they should really be training all the info center staff, Thanks for the pleasant visit !! :)

Even though there were no free coffee and tea while we were there on May long weekend as the previous reviewers mentioned, it was a very good place to learn/see history of a family of Merritt. The guide was super helpful and she explained very well about the property.

The Baillie Property is located next to an information centre. The house is like a museum, and is very well laid out.

They took such good care of Mom, gave us water, offered us tea, sat us down...later, learned it's such a lovely place to learn about Merritt, and still... More

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
