“TOOK WHOLE FAMILY FOR TOUR”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had family from England over and we visited the old houses, the heritage animal breeds, the restaurant was so full there were no seats available and we were right at the end of the season so they were ready to shut down for winter.

“okanagan pioneers”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Cornelius Okeefe and Thomas Greenhow established Okeefe Ranch in 1867 cattle drivers who supplied the cariboo gold rush and operated a huge cattle ranch. These ranches were self-contained settlements and to experience a small view into their lives is always an education. The Mansion is the highlight of the ranch, extremely informed tour guides walk you though . Schubert house is also very interesting as Mrs. Schubert is there making cookies and telling you of her ordeal to reach the okanagan as the only woman amongst 150. There is a lovely church, a well stocked general store, bunk houses, antique museums,stables & rodeo events. Theres a saddlery which Mr. Netzel is busy making saddles, bridles, belts or just making good conversation. You should come out explore & support a heritage site worth keeping it`s good family fun. The buffet on sunday was very good we could have stayed for hours. We hope Okeefe ranch will be here for another 145 years.

“Back in time.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a great way to spend a few hours going back in time. There are numerous buildings dating back to the 1800's arranged like a small town. The guides are interesting and the restaurant is good. Worth the stop.
