We chose Doe Bay Resort as a place to gather because it can accommodate all of us in a beautiful setting, maximizing opportunities to interact while minimizing logistical effort (once you get there!). Please peruse the information about Doe Bay and consider claiming one of the reservations we've made for you there. For family (and friends who prefer less rustic abodes), we've included some recommended alternatives that are relatively nearby.

Doe Bay Resort

The Doe Bay Resort web site is a good place to get oriented. We have reserved for you all a constellation of cabins, yurts, "greenhouse" cabins, and camp sites, mostly clustered around the water front. With reference to the Resort accomodation map and the table of reserved and available accomodations, including rates and occupancy, please contact the Doe Bay office staff (360-376-2291), identify yourself as a member of the Reese/Veirs wedding party, and work with them to assign your name to an unclaimed reservation.

Around June 1, we will cancel any unclaimed reservations, and the choices may be scant. Please note that there is a reservation deposit of 1/2 the projected cost of your stay; complete payment is due upon check out. While we trust that our time at Doe Bay will be completely fantastic, we refer you to a few independent opinions of the place gleaned from the web, to engage your patience, flexibility, and sympathy.
