Imagine waking up in a cabin in the San Juans surrounded by the Sound, forest, and beaches. It’s not just a dream because it can be a reality at Doe Bay. If you haven’t heard of this relatively secret PNW gem, now is the time to learn and maybe even book a stay.

Doe Bay has been used by settlers since the 1800s and has many hundreds of years of First Nations Coast Salish history before that. It’s been a site of potlatches, homesteads, farming, a resort, and much more. Its rich history full of people from all walks of life is part of what makes it such a unique place to stay.

What also makes the 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, 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.

If you’d like to book a stay this fall, you can actually spend Thanksgiving at the resort but we recommend grabbing tickets ASAP because they’ll go quickly. If you’d like to learn more about the resort or book a stay you can click below.
