Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Val and I grew up in Vancouver, BC. We raised both our children in the Kitsilano area before moving up to the Okanagan and making Gallagher Lake our home. PS You might recognize Dan from both Ace Cycle Shop and Dan's Bike Shop in Vancouver's Kitsilano area. Dan was in the bicycle business for over 30 years.

Why the Owner Chose Oliver, BC, Canada:
We've been vacationing in this area since 1974. We discovered Gallagher Lake in the early 1980's and have been drawn back to it every year. We used to camp at the KOA campground then began staying at the Gallagher Lake Lodge. When our dream property came up for sale it was a no brainer. It had 2 houses on it! We enjoy living here and are now able to share it with you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The lake! Gallagher Lake is at the bottom of an awe inspiring cliff. Hours can be spent gazing at it's shape while catching rays or floating about in the lake. Enjoy Gallagher Lake and area while staying in a well equipped house with a private beach. It's like camping without leaving home! Com-fordable rental, in the middle of natural beauty, set in Canada's only desert.
