This resort is truly incredible, and we completely enjoyed our stay. We arrived late on a Wednesday and were immediately enchanted with the setting and the cabins. They are quiet, clean, and well-apportioned. The many amenities provided are amazing - my family enjoyed the kayaks and the smores for sure! We also found the staff to be very helpful and...

My mom and I stayed in suite 2 for the entire week of May 30-June 4th. I decided on the suite because we had a balcony/patio that overlooked the docks and Mitchell Bay. We had the best view on the property in my opinion, plus the coffee shop was directly beneath us which was super convenient in the mornings! The...

We celebrated our 20th anniversary at Snug Harbor and stayed in a waterview cabin. The cabins are simply designed, but crafted well with the focus on the beautiful view. We were very comfortable - it was quiet and there were great opportunities for amateur bird watching. The exercise room had everything I needed. The staff was welcoming and kept the...

We stayed just one night but would have enjoyed several more. The cabins are roomy with everything you need to cook or just enjoy an evening on the couch. The manager said that while the resort has been here for many years, it was completely redone about five years ago. It looks even newer than that! The grounds of the...

Snug Harbor was even better than the website could describe. We spent two amazing days there. Accommodations were clean, stylish and comfortable. Kitchens were well equipped. The views were unparalleled. Little store with some basics but bring your own groceries. Went whale watching with Maya's right from the dock on site. Would go back in a heart beat. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the high praise and we look forward to you visiting us again soon. We believe the views and our offerings, stand alone waterfront cabins, private marina, free kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, bikes and firewood are unparalleled at any other accommodation option on the San Juan Island. We look forward to your visiting us again in the future.

Accommodations are great for small families. Full kitchen is a useful due to the more remote location. Though it is only 15 min to Friday Harbor. Clean rooms and pretty location, well maintained. Stocked fire pits, kayaks and paddle boards are a great touch. Views and peaceful. Friendly staff and easy access to whale watching and parks.

We stayed here for my friend's wedding. Beautiful location with cozy cabins. Excellent cleanliness and amenities, full kitchens in the units..... Paddle boards and kayaks for rent. Not a lot of excitement in the area , but if you're the outdoorsy type you'll love it ! Two fire pits too and they provide FREE wood..;-)

Your correct that guests don't come to Snug Harbor (or San Juan Island for that matter) for the night life but the beauty you experience during the days and evenings is amazing. Glad you enjoyed our waterside fire pits.

Snug harbor resort was tranquill, comfortable, relaxing, and felt safe. The staff was super friendly! We felt welcome. The waterview cabins are situated in such a way that we felt we had complete privacy. Also, we saw deer right outside our window in the morning! Loved it here.

The suites are one of my favorite set of rooms. We made a decision during the design phase to make our bedrooms smaller and to commit as much space as possible to the living area because that is where the vast majority of guests time are spent if they are not outside. We also have three cabins that do offer...

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
