From the time Mel and Isabelle (managers/owners?) greeted us to the time, 4 days later, when we left our stay was wonderful. The room was comfy, clean, and well stocked with kitchen utensils. The lake is beautiful, and water sports equipment is readily available for adults and children. Within walking distance there is a bar/resturant. The area is very scenic,... More

The pros - the location is gorgeous, on a small spring fed lake with a high bluff across the lake. No motor boats, a quiet clean beach, dock with fish swimming by. Plenty to watch if you're a birder, just steps from your door, and the bats come out at night along with the stars. Beautiful and very peaceful. Close... More

We stayed two nights at this motel and it was two nights too many, which will give me the creeps for years to come. We stayed in room no.4 and it was completely filthy. The bathroom tub and sink faucets were covered with grime as was the kitchen. Both my husband and I actually had to wipe things down with... More

My wife and I were introduced to Gallagher Lake Lodge over twenty years. Our children have grown up at Gallagher Lake and we absolutely love it. It is a quiet, clean lake with no motor boats, fabulous swimming and a wonderful family atmosphere. If you want the partying, loud atmosphere of some of the beaches in the interior than this...

A group of us ladies, looking for a quiet spot, rented a cabin for the weekend. It was not part of the "motel" area but completely separate, for privacy. The cabin was "dated" but that we could live with, after all it is a cabin but it was dirty and smelled of human body fluids. The owners did provide a... More

We just came back from spending the weekend. Rented one of the cabins thinking we would be on the lake. NOPE we were right on the highway with so much noise you could not even talk from all the traffic. The lake is beautiful...but the cabins are not worth the money. We were there 2 nights and it cost us... More

My family and I have been coming to Gallagher Lake Lodge for over 25 years. Over that time, we have usually enjoyed ourselves and all the other families who regularly holiday there during our August week. There have been a number of managers/owners of the Lodge over that time. Some good some not so much. The current managers, Mel &... More

If you are looking for luxury, this is not your vacation. We have been coming to Gallagher Lake for 45 years. Not a lot has changed. The lake is clean, cool, and a great place to cool off during the hot Okanagan summer. The units are small and old but you do not stay at Gallagher lake for the units,... More

Several families gathered at Gallagher lake annually for many years. Our family did not miss a year for 40+ years and became our destination of choice for our family of 4 generations. We as children looked forward to spending our coveted week at Gallagher Lake and as our families grew, so did our children and grandchildren. We hold so many... More

After reading the rest of the reviews I felt that I have share our experiences here. We have been going to Gallagher Lake Lodge for years, staying in the lower level of the lodge. While the place may not be all that much to look at from the road, when you go through to the lake, you see paradise. The... More
