A gorgeous piece of property on Gallagher Lake in the South Okanagan. Enjoy swimming, wine touring or golfing at 6 local courses. There is a bird sanctuary and lots of good hiking in the area.
The 5th wheel has one queen bed and a hide-a-bed. There is plenty of room for tents, also. Included are linens, dishes, satellite TV, front deck, BBQ and a cast iron wood burning fireplace outdoors. WiFi is also included. We are happily pet friendly.
Gallagher Lake is a private spring fed lake that is 10 minutes north of Oliver and 20 minutes south of Penticton on Highway 97.
Hi there! We are Janice and Alan. I grew up on this lake and have taken over the property when Mom went into a home. I met Alan here as a child when he and his family vacationed here from Calagry. I am being very sincere when I say that this is the best spot to spend some spring, summer or fall weeks, as I have done it all my life. Oliver is the 'Wine Capital of Canada' and that normally directs some enthusiasm. We enjoy that immensely. We also golf when we can get out or spend a lazy afternoon on the air mattress.
Alan Haley/Janice Sarell purchased this recreational vehicle in 1968
When we call it 'A Little Piece of Paradise', you will see why we are not joking.
The property is large and very private. We live next door. You have your own beach, while the 5th wheel is nestled in the pine trees. You will have almost all the comforts of home and access to great golfing, hiking and wine touring.
I have stayed at this rental with Janice and Allan as hosts twice now. The location is ideal. You are right on a spring fed lake with 100 feet of water front! What more could you ask for? Well....,I'll tell you...., you also get a large yard, large deck and a trailer that sleeps up to four! The price is right and the hospitality next to none. Such a great find! I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Oliver area. If you unfamiliar with Oliver it is the Wine capital of Canada. Days can be spent wine touring, having lunch at a vista perched winery or hanging out at the lake! Lot's of inflatable toys/sun chairs to use as well!! Thanks again for a relaxing week!!
My children and I stayed here in July of 2015. We had a wonderful time. The site allowed for privacy, and I felt very secure. The fifth wheel had all the comforts of home, and was clean and well maintained. The yard was beautiful as well. It was a very restful place to read and relax. Our hosts were more than willing to help us out with the technical details (such as charging the boat motors, using the bbq, etc). There were a ton of beach toys, including already inflated floaty toys, fishing poles/equipment and fishing boats. My children were occupied the entire time. There was ample parking, and our hosts didn't mind when I had relatives over for a bbq .
This property truly was pet friendly, and our hosts were very tolerant of my dog (s). They were allowed to play and have fun also. One of my dogs is high energy, and can cause issues if people aren't understanding of his nature. I have stayed in places where I spent much of my vacation time trying to make sure that my dog wasn't seen or heard. This wasn't the case here. Our hosts had a lovely dog named Jenna (who was a very good girl), and was well liked by my dog and children.
Our hosts were also very flexible and understanding. Due to work commitments, I was forced to change my reservation times. They provided alternate dates to the best of their ability, and made me feel welcome despite the extra effort they went to in order to ensure my vacation went smoothly.
I will definitely stay here again, and have recommended this home to many friends.
Gallagher Lake is located 10 minutes north of Oliver BC. It is in the heart of wine country. It is surrounded by orchards and vineyards so there is fresh fruit and wine readily available. Numerous golf courses are in the area to challenge all levels of golfers. There are many other lakes in the area for recreation.
