Sail into Doe Bay and enjoy the local organic restaurant near the hot springs first. The actual hot springs are clothing optional and consist of a sauna/steam room and three sets of tubs. Try to do the polar bear swim in the middle of your spa day in the nearby bay. This is one of the healthiest and friendliest places... More

We were camping on Orcas with friends who took us here for breakfast. What a great location! The cafe's food was fresh, wholesome, healthy and delicious. My only wish was that we were actually staying at the resort--but we'll be back and will make sure to book a few nights!!

Perfect retreat if you don't mind a rustic experience. The hot tubs are clothing optional, so they tend to attract aging hippies. If that doesn't bother you, the setting can't be beat. Only wish they had a shuttle from the ferry so we could leave our car behind. We came by boat, anchored, rowed in and paid the $30 day... More

We stayed at Doe Bay over Memorial Day Weekend and we loved it! We camped at a drive-in camp spot- the Moose site in case you ever go. There is a wonderful cafe with all organic, vegetarian food (plus seafood). You honestly can't beat the views. I have done a lot of camping in my life and Doe Bay is... More

Now if I had known that by saying "resort" they meant "camping" this post would be very different. That being said, $90 a night is way to expensive for a 15 foot by 15 foot room with no dresser, mirror, tv, or BATHROOM. That's right, kids, you have to traverse a mountain path that is poorly lit and poorly maintained... More

We stayed in a cabin called Children's Cabin. It was in a great spot in the shade. There's a loft in it which the staff should clean the walls, up there. Very cool hottubs but they should keep it open pass 10:00 pm. The sauna rocks. Nice cool breeze there. They should put some kind of playground for the kids.... More

Doe Bay is a great "hippie" getaway, so if you don't like hairy half naked folks, please stay away! But if you are looking for a retreat from polished places, where you can half-camp in a rustic cabin right by an incredible beach, where the hot springs overlook a waterfall going into a bay...then this is an incredible spot. Good... More
