Vacation Home Rentals for the Perfect Getaway in Vernon, BC

Propery Map

Located twenty minutes from Vernon B.C., and nestled in a secluded bay, Outback Lakeside Vacation Homes provide an escape few who stay here will ever forget. Guests arrive to find architecturally stunning homes as beautiful as the landscape that surrounds them. Intimate neighborhoods, each with their own unique character and feel, are arranged over 60 acres of lakeside pine forest, providing unparalleled privacy and seclusion. 

The sights and sounds of the British Columbia wilderness envelop you. Hike along a forest trail while listening to the whisper of the trees. Get lost deep within a fragrant pine forest. Paddle a kayak along Okanagan Lake, keeping an eye out for ospreys, swans and Great Blue Herons. Enjoy an evening cocktail before dinner on your deck. After your meal, take our breathtaking cliffside glass elevator down to the waterfront boardwalk and enjoy a leisurely moonlit stroll before turning in.

Whether you’ve escaped to the Okanagan Valley for the exhilaration of a mountain getaway or to relax and do absolutely nothing at all, we offer a wide range of pleasure pursuits.
