Right in our own backyard. The story of who and how this all began is amazing. Its a huge complex. The ' ghost town ' tour is well worth the admission. Lots to see is an understatement.
If you love old cars, old trains, and old buildings - all in excellent condition, then this is the place .
The gift shop has a nice selection of trinkets. We had the buffet lunch in the rail car, over-looking the lake. Food was excellent. Staff very friendly and attentive . Highly recommend.

“Fantastic Vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We recently had a fantastic weekend away at the Three Valley Gap with our 4 kids. Everyone had an awesome time, kayaking, swimming, fishing, playing in the awesome games room. The restaurant food and service was great, especially the breakfast! All the staff was very helpful and friendly especially the helicopter pilots Anthony and Kelly! We were so impressed with how beautiful the gardens were kept and found the hotel rooms and bathrooms very clean. The ghost town in awesome, full of artifacts and history. The old trains museum was amazing and the kids had a blast touring thru the old passanger trains. We highly recommend this spot for a family get away and we will definetly be making this place a yearly vacation spot!

“Well Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

At the beginning of June, two friends and I spent the night at the Three Valley Gap hotel. It was my second time staying there but it had been several years since the first visit. This time we took the time to visit the Ghost Town. It was much larger than my first visit. It is a wonderful collection of memorabilia and well displayed. We spent an hour touring around but certainly could have spent longer. It is well worth stopping even if you don't stay at the hotel.

“Cute place”

Great place to spend an hour. Train conductor was great and we enjoyed the sights and went through the "haunted train" and also on the train where Trudeau gave the Salmon Arm Salute!

“A must visit attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Ghost town originated from a far sighted individual who decided to save Canada's heritage by perserving old building by moving them to this site, rather than letting them decay. It has some fascinating buildings, each one with a story and the inside is laid out as it would have been when it was occupied.
There is so much to see and you can learn a lot about the bravery and resiliance of the early settlers. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Ghost Town. It is my number one museum site in British Columbia
