It has been about two months since staying at Doe Bay Resort and at first I thought that it was not worth my time to write a review but since staying at an ah-mazing hotel it made me realize how important online reviews are for being able to make a qualified decision about where to spend one's limited vacation days...

Hi, I just wanted to offer you feedback on why my wife and I canceled our reservations (Order # 2389) for the 2017 Festival. My wife and I are veteran tent campers and festival-goers, but we had never attended DBF. We had always wanted to come, and this year saved enough money to camp and enjoy all 4 days of...

Stayed in the "Little Cabin" ( after requesting a change when our 1st cabin was beside the works yard and a giant septic field with no ocean view.. Amazing view is about all this cabin has going for it. I would say different if it wasn't 200.00 a night for very basic rustic accommodations. I'm not a chronic complainer and...

Spent three nights at the "Little House" cabin right near the water. This is a funky, relaxed "resort" with amazing views of Cypress and Blakely islands. Killer location and fun for hippies and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. Although it offers the usual hippie resort amenities such as yoga sessions and clothing optional soaking pools, it is not overtly new-agey...

This was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. We stayed two nights for a wedding, and the entire place was booked out with just wedding guests, which made it feel like summer camp. We stayed in in a one bedroom cabin with a wonderful view of the bay from the living room/front porch, but there are many...

We had a beautiful winter break on Orcas Island. Hiking trails were open and views very nice. It is cold this time of year, so very happy to return to Doe Bay Report. They have a spa and three large hot soaking tubs, and dry sauna. It can also be used by visitors who pay a day fee who aren't...

My daughter and her boy friend arranged for us to stay at Doe Bay along with them. They stayed in a campsite; we stayed in a cabin. Reading the reviews, I got a little worried as there were several "horrible" evaluations. Our experience was excellent. I think the problem is the "resort" in the facility's name. There are plenty of...

The resort was nice, I didn't spend much time enjoying the amenities but it looked like there was a lot to do and the views were very nice. the food was excellent, probably the best crab cake eggs benedict I've ever had. my cabin was nice, it was one of the new ones, better than others based on what I...

We took our Westy van to Orcas Island and Lopez Island. I chose Lopez over San Juan Island specifically because it is more laid back. Doe Bay Resort was a wonderful place to camp and relax. It's totally operated by hippies and they do a darn fine job. We made use of the common showers and the common kitchen (for...
