Good old fashioned Farm

Besides the thrilling history of the native people, we don't have to much history to offer in Vernon. This is one of the only places. And that's what it is,

We were there as part of a large business related group. Not sure how it is as a restaurant. Good combination of activities included Lasso throwing competition, Horse Carriage rides, Westren music and average food.

This was to be a time filling visit. Were we surprised. This is a fascinating trip into life in the wild west of British Columbia. The O'Keefe's were prosperous ranchers in the 1880's and 90's and their families owned and farmed the ranch well into the 1970's. One tours the mansion house complete with much that is original or to... More

Had a wonderful time at O'Keefe Ranch st our convention. The food was outstanding and the entertainment even better. The Cowboys were fun, teaching us how to rope, give wagon rides and sing!! Would highly recommend it!!

Enjoyed a sunny afternoon walking through the displays. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The house tour was very informative. There was a Potter on site making ceramic water filters for third world countries which was also of interest

An interesting venue that gives a glimpse of the life of a ranch at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th. The facilities are very well maintained, the O'keefe's residence is beautiful and full of details that bring you back to the Victorian era. The little church on the grounds is very quaint, it really caught... More

Historical setting just north of Vernon. Well worth visiting with a good restaurant and many interesting artifacts. Have visited many times and always enjoyable. The restaurant is good and I really enjoy the buffet as the salads are great.
