Property description

The Lodge at Eastshore-originally built in 1917- is a beautifully restored, historic house with over 3000 sq. ft. of comfortable living space on the Eastshore of Kootenay Lake, British Columbia, Canada.

The Lodge occupies its own 1/2 acre, west-facing lakefront lot in a gorgeous 7.5 acre property, sleeps 6-8 people comfortably in four well-appointed bedrooms, and is ideally suited for sharing by 2 families or a group of good friends. There is lots of room to spread out! This is an idyllic, family oriented setting that will offer you wonderful and lasting memories.

When you rent the Lodge you get exclusive use of the Lodge and all its amenities as well as access to common grounds on the property including a private beach and grass tennis court.

The Lodge is available for your own exclusive use with

•4 comfortable bedrooms (three with queen size beds) that can sleep 6-8 people comfortably
•3 bathrooms (two ensuite) and a gorgeous, private outdoor shower with lake views
•a fully equipped modern kitchen with counter top stove, wall oven, microwave, and dishwasher

•a laundry room with washer and dryer.

There is a covered deck and a lakeside deck with quite a view where you can watch eagles, osprey, and loons fish, enjoy magnificent sunsets, and stargaze. With no city lights, the star count is in the millions.

The Lodge shares the 7.5 acre property with 20 other owners. When you stay at the Lodge you will have a chance to meet our neighbours and often their children and children's children. It's a wonderful community and we hope you enjoy being part of it during your stay and perhaps make some new friends. Please note that one of our property rules is a strict 11pm quiet time. You will enjoy being lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Hello. Our names are Debbie Harris and Andrew Pirie. We are the proud owners of the Lodge at Eastshore. We have been enjoying this area on holidays and visits for over 25 years. Our past guests have described their stays at the Lodge at Eastshore as “unbelievably beautiful”, “breathtaking”, “exhilarating” , “a wonder”, “a great place for the kids”, “so much to do”, “a wonderful place to unwind ” and “something very special”. We invite you to consider a holiday here and to add to these superlatives. You will not be disappointed.

Why the Owner Chose Gray Creek:
We wanted to preserve the unique history of this beautiful property. In the 1930’s the Lodge served as the centre of a luxury resort called Kootenay Cottages where guest would come from places far and away to fish for world record Gerrard Rainbow trout and kokanee salmon, to golf on what is now the world class Kokanee Springs Golf Resort, to play tennis on the properties own grass tennis court, and to experience the natural beauty of this region. The world record Gerrard rainbow, kokanee salmon, golf, grass tennis court and natural beauty are still here for you to enjoy. While we have preserved as much as possible of the Lodge’s important history, we have lovingly updated the Lodge for your comfort and enjoyment.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The Lodge occupies a very special spot on the east shore of Kootenay Lake-looks directly west to the intersection of the south, north, and west arms of Kootenay Lake and the entrance to Crawford Bay-a spectacular view, gorgeous sunsets, amazing star gazing, and the natural beauty of the Kootenays at your doorstep. Also when you rent the Lodge you get access to a private beach, grass tennis court, and lots of common property.
