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.
