Hotels, Motels & Resorts
Chain hotels are clustered in the city centre, especially along Highway 97, and provide amenities like indoor pools and restaurants. Motels are located in the same area; some have extras like outdoor pools. A hostel is available at Silver Star Mountain Resort.
Resorts options include suites and cottages near a golf course, and a lakeside inn on the shore of Kalamalka Lake.
B&Bs, Cabins & Specialty Stays
Check into a heritage home connected with one of the area's first and largest cattle ranches, retire to a country estate with lake and valley views or wake up and smell the wildflowers in a mountain retreat. Wilderness and lakeside fishing lodges in the highlands surrounding Vernon offer cottages, rustic cabins and camping. Horse-lovers, try a guest ranch or B&B and bale.
