About Andrew Pirie

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.

Andrew Pirie purchased this lodge in 2003

Why Andrew Pirie chose British Columbia

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.

What makes this lodge unique

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.

deep relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had such an enjoyable time off the grid at Gray Creek Lodge on Kooteney lake that although we were there only 48 hours it felt like longer because of the pristine environment with world class views & solitude we were

able to achieve a very deep level of relaxation and diffuse the

majority of our stress. Even our moody teenager didn't want to leave and was playing hide n seek & parlor games with the younger kids. The kayaking was excellent. Maybe bring a wetsuit though if you're there in May or June. After that, the water gets a lot warmer. The lower deck on lake is magnificent & the side deck is also lake facing & very nice for breakfasts. We used the formal dining room for diners. Plenty of space to spread out in. Would be a great spot for family reunion, multi family get away, retreat or friends getaway spot. For toddlers or young kids one

would have to be careful with

the antiques and breakables. Ourare school-aged childrenhad the best time playing ping pong, piano, games, reading, exploring, playing outdoors & down at the lake. Andrew is very pleasant & welcoming

"Let it Breathe" Road Trip 2013

This is a great place for a large group to stay! Spacious, fully equipped with an amazing deck by the lake! We enjoyed the several "living rooms" and the comfortable covered porch where we ate our meals! The hosts were very pleasant and accommodating! We would all love to return some day!
