We booked the Ridge Home as we have 5 adults and I would highly recommend this over staying in hotel in Vernon as the price would be equivalent to 2 hotel rooms. Amazing view of the lake with floor to ceiling windows all over the house. Very spacious open kitchen area, separate tv room, 3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Perhaps...

Beautiful, quiet and serene gateway. We stayed in cabin FC25. Gorgeous cabin, 2 bedrooms in the main cabin and detached bedroom and bath. A provincial park bordering the property for exploring. Most of the facilities were closed during spring break so we mainly explored the beaches and surrounding area. Majority of the homes in this resort are private. The drawbacks-...

We recently stayed at the Outback resort for the September long weekend. What a beautiful getaway!! We stayed in a Forest Cabin, which was beautiful! 3 bedrooms, 3 bathroom, perfect for us(2 adults and 4 teens). we used both pools and all 4 hot tubs and even had warm enough weather for a dip in the lake. We loved it...

This place is amazing with outstanding amenities. Views are breath taking from the ridge homes if you are fortunate enough to stay in one. Pool is nice but real treat is swimming in the crystal clear lake. The resort is a bit isolated being a 20-30 min drive from Vernon.

We stayed in a trout lake 3 bedroom house and it was perfect for our family of 6: plenty of space and well equipped, a deck to eat out on with an open view of the hillsides (but not the Okanagan lake). We loved having the option of pool or lake to swim, the tennis courts and playground. It was...

Based on the lakeside location,architectural style and previous reviewers we recently had a 3 night late summer stay at a resort home at the Outback Resort. As we booked fairly late, the available unit was a 3 bedroom in the "Forest Cabins" specifically FC-28. The setting of the Outback is outstanding, interesting buildings built into and around the granite cliffs...

We appreciate that you enjoyed the entire surroundings of the Outback including all of the amenities but are rather concerned about the comments directed towards one particular home. As we record each and every deficiency reported daily and are very diligent in our policies and procedures regarding maintenance there were no recorded logs to indicate the deficiencies in that home...

This past summer, we returned to The Outback and this time stayed in a 3 bedroom Trout Lake home. It was perfect for our group of 6 (including 2 children). The location is a bit further away from the main pool and lake but a 10 minute walk didn't hurt us! Our unit was missing a few items (a decent...

Would make a world of difference if the beach was sandy versus rocky (young and old likely need to know they need water shoes or at minimum flip flops near by). Amount of things to do are endless and right at your fingertips. There is no need to go exploring as you can keep busy right at the resort:)

We stayed (6 of us) at one of the Ridge homes in June. While the house itself is stunning, the cleanliness is atrocious! I think we might have killed 20 spiders in the first day. It's like no one had been in the house for months and the staff just figured it was clean from the last guests. There were...

Thank you for your feed back, in order for us to gain a better understanding of your stay would it be at all possible to gather more information as to which home you vacationed in? We at The Outback have many new policies and procedures in place to ensure very high standards are met. Upon further review of our guests...

My family and I stayed here for a week to relax. This place far exceeded our expectations for that purpose. Our unit was in South Bay, and had an excellent view of the lake. Not all units can say the same, though. From some units, especially near the top of the hill, I'm not sure you can even see the...

“We just wanted a cabin in the forest, sounded intriguing. Next time I think we would like a unit closer to the water.”

“Ask for water views, not forest units. And since some are stacked two high, ask for the top unit....with vaulted ceiling and quieter.”

“We were in a large group, so we booked two forest cabins so that we did not disturb the rest of the resort. Quiet time closer to the lake is 9pm, so keep that in mind.”
