At this time, Doe Bay is not accepting any new event inquiries for 2021 or 2022.
For Doe Bay to succeed this year, we need to plan long-term for 2021 with as much certainty and predictability as possible. This leaves us to operate under the assumption that the highest restrictions will remain in place. What this looks like for Doe Bay’s operations this year is a simple lodging model with reduced availability, occupancy, and amenities, which in turn reduces our ability to staff.
So what does a simple lodging model mean for events? While events have been an important part of Doe Bay’s success over the years, putting on an event in 2021 involves extra challenges, risks and a daunting amount of uncertainty. To be ready for even a modest event season we would need to plan for much more staffing than would be needed, under the simple lodging model, while still risking the chance that restrictions will persist into the Spring and Summer, thwarting our plans and requiring us to rethink everything, again.
We appreciate your understanding in helping us to operate safely and responsibly in the face of so much uncertainty. As always, this is our highest priority!
