What also makes Doe Bay Resort such a unique place to stay is its array of accommodations. You can choose between staying in cabins ranging from rustic to deluxe, yurts, or even opt for camping. Each accommodation varies in amenities so you can have as normal or as off-the-grid of an experience as you’d like.

Not to mention the resort is open year-round and also has attractions like a spa, an organic garden & restaurant, and even a music festival. You can also go kayaking, and whale watching, and even rent it out for events. So it looks like you might just have to plan a few future excursions to Doe Bay Resort.
