So we had 5 five families visiting The Outback in Vernon and we all loved the resort. Forest cabins are far from the lake and pools, but we just drove everyone down. Kids loved riding their bikes around the resort and did not mind all the hills. Only shadow on our holiday was Vernon Boat Rentals which is a business... More

Wow is all I can say again. We stayed here in December of 2012 for Christmas and were so impressed we came back in the summer and was not disappointed. We booked through Expedia however there was a little mix up and when I called to confirm they couldn't find my reservation. They called back and actually upgraded us to... More

We did our best to enjoy our stay at the Outback but the positives of the location and resort facilities were overwhelmed by a large number of problems we experienced during and in the aftermath of our stay. While our condo was nice with a well-appointed kitchen, not all was as advertised with only 1 1/2 bathrooms instead of 2.... More

We, a group of four adults and a teenaged brother and sister rented a three bedroom condo in this resort. It was very well appointed and located a short walk from the main beach. The resort is somewhat isolated and mainly designed for the very well heeled owners of the individual condos and houses. Only a small percentage of the... More

Our cabin was peaceful, clean and well appointed: kitchen stocked with blender, food processor and mixer. The property is beautiful: spectacular lakeside, natural landscaping, pools well maintained. Access to wicked mountain bike and running trails in the provincial park adjacent to the resort. We stayed in a cabin near the top of the resort, the hill to the lake provided... More

This truly is a magical location. This place is unmatched with breathtaking views, immaculate grounds, clean & comfortable accommodation and truly beautiful natural scenery. There is an unending list of things to do from lake side adventures, pool, tennis, hikes, bike trails or just simply relaxing in the shade. Whether it is a group of friend or families I, without...

We stayed in forest cabin 15 and it was beautiful! Comfortable, well equipped, modern and clean. Beds were super comfortable - resort was peaceful and quiet. Kids enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Only a short drive in to Vernon, did a day trip to kelowna. Would def go back!

I was fortunate to stay at the Outback just after Christmas 2012 and what a fantastic place it is. We were in a two bed, two bath unit which easily slept 6 of us and had the most fantastic views I have ever had the pleasure to wake up to. The apartment has the feeling of luxury and comfort about... More

We stayed here just after Christmas and were very surprised. It was hard to tell from the website just exactly what the place would be like however we read the reviews on Tripadvisor and were comforted by them. The place we stayed in was a Forest Cabin (#15 I believe) and from the outside we were a bit sceptical. However... More
