The folks at Okeefe Ranch are very proficient in describing and showing some of the forgotten history of this region, from the cattle drives and the fur trading to modern day facilities and orchards. A great place to allow those interested in that history to be shown as it was. The Cowboy Dinner is a very informative and pleasant event.
Sunday Brunch is a treat when family come to town. They have a huge variety of foods. The O'Keefe Ranch is a very interesting place to learn about Vernon History. The Church and the Schoolhouse are worth seeing many times. We go as often as we can and always have a wonderful time.
I spent the day here with my family and it was i time to remember, we watch the traditional way to turn thread with sheeps wool.also spent some time at the candy store very historic place would strongly recommend a visit!
This is an excellent family stop to turn back the clock. The historical buildings are amazingly well preserved and we enjoyed interacting with the people in character clothing on site.
We usually go there on Friday for Prime rib. The meat is of good quality and you get a generous portion. The service is friendly, just make sure that you make a reservation, there is nothing worse then driving out there just to turn around because they are full or have a function.
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,
To me, this is not a place to go if you have a time constraint. The food is excellent and it is different to be dining among remnants of the past in a cowboy motif.
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.
