Could not have asked for a more relaxing weekend and we are already thinking about our next trip. The new cabins are simply amazing, no detail overlooked. Wonderful views can be had from every cabin. Had one of the two bedroom cabins and it was ample space for four people. Beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. The kitchen has...

Thank you for the review and for noticing the little things. We worked really hard on the little things because we believe they add up to one big wonderful guest experience. The shower floors are wonderful and we actually put them in our main shower in our home. A small foot massage every morning. We look forward to welcoming you...

I and my boy friend visited San Juan during rainy season, so not so many outdoor activities, we were just looking for some where for relaxing. This area was totally peaceful and beautiful, but a little bit sad. The servers were so friendly. The cabin was like a small house with everything. Having a cup of tea and enjoining rainy...

Entering the cabin was a memorable moment. It was a perfect retreat to relax, enjoy and never want to leave. The marina and water views were outstanding. The cabin is clean, new, spacious and the gas fireplace made for a perfect cabin in the woods experience. Snug Harbor exceeded our expectations.

Thank you for the review. One of our primary goals when designing the cabins was to have a "wow" effect when our guests walk through the door. Thank you for letting us know we were successful.

We recently stayed for one night at this resort and were very impressed. We had a two bedroom cabin overlooking the harbor. The cabin was very well appointed and the furnishings were lovely. We enjoyed our fireplace in the cabin and ate on our deck while watching the water. Very quiet and serene. I wish we would have had more...

Our two favorite things to hear from guests are, "We don't want to leave" and "We wish we could stay longer". We feel we have accomplished our goal when guests are reluctant to depart from our property and can't wait to come back. Thank you for your review.

Snug Harbor Resort is a nice quiet resort with upscale cabins. Kitchen area is fully stocked with stove, fridge, utensils, plates, cutlery, etc. Each cabin has its own BBQ. Firepits are available on a good evening. View is amazing looking out at the marina with houses across the water. The location is handy to the west side of San Juan...

I hope you made the hike up to Young Hill (one of the closest to the resort). While a short, low impact hike, it's low summit offers amazing views of the nearby islands and into Canada. Thank you for choosing Snug Harbor Resort and we look forward to having you back with us in the future.

Wow, we are thankful we rank so high in your travel experience. We work very hard to deliver an amazing visit.

We recently revisited the Seattle area and spent 5 nights up in the San Juan Islands. We took a car ferry over to Friday Harbor and drove to the other side of the island for some peace and quiet. Snug Harbor was just what we were looking for and only 15 minutes away from the main town of Friday Harbor....

October is a great time to visit Snug Harbor. The staff was great. We received a warm greeting from the staff when we arrived. The coffee was excellent at the coffee bar. The whole facility is new and beautiful. Snug Harbor is a great place for a business retreat.

The cabin was nice, everything we needed. Bed was comfortable, kitchen was great to reheat various delights from town. Wifi on this side of the island is pretty slow, you can't stream so if you want to watch movies, break out your DVD collection or borrow one from the office/store.

Yes, our wifi is unfortunately slow. We have two incoming lines to try to offer the best possible speeds which are frustratingly slow. The good news is the island is currently installing fiber optics and we hope they will get to our neighborhood before to much time passes. Then we will have amazing wifi to offer our guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
All of our 17 cabins and three suites are spacious with beautiful interiors, expansive glass, vaulted ceilings, full kitchens, and uninterrupted, stunning views. Snug Harbor's incredible setting is unparalleled on San Juan Island. Arriving by boat is always an option, since we have our own private marina. We are perfectly located for adventures throughout the islands. Once you arrive and explore the resort, you will discover the unique features, comforts, and amenities provided to each of our guests. We strive to make each guest's visit amazing and memorable. We offer four paddle boards, two kayaks, canoes and bikes for the complimentary use by our guests. Our own Mitchell Bay Coffee is open daily offering an array of coffee beverages, local pastries, waffles, soups, and more. And if you are looking for somewhere to host an event, our new events room with seating for up to 50 is now available. When you come to Snug Harbor be ready to detach a little. This is an ideal place to unwind and relax (while we have free wi-fi throughout the property and great cell phone reception, there are no phones in the cabins). Allow the peace and serenity on Mitchell Bay overtake you. We believe our guests have said it best. One recent Trip Advisor review stated "This place is truly paradise" and our favorite Facebook post simply stated "The cabins are epic". ... more   less
