My boyfriend and I loved it when we first pulled it. From the pictures we knew it was beautiful but when we got there it was breathtaking. Everyone there is very friendly. Not once did we really watch T.V. as we were outside most of the time. I would go back again as I loved it. Very tranquil.

While the location is lovely, and the cabins for the most part functioning, the customer service at the reception area was very lacking. Given the price point of this resort, I was baffled by the indifference and detachment displayed by two of the three front desk staff. I got the sense that there may be some management problems at the...

This gem is even more beautiful than the photo's online. The views are spectacular, peaceful, breathtaking. The landscaping around the cabins are gorgeous. Location is perfect- The Island is small and easy to get to all points, trails and highlights. Snug Harbor has a resort binder with all details, recommendations and Island info. The cabins are adorable and each one...

Snug Harbor is an amazing place to unwind. We stayed in a one room cabin and it was exactly what we needed for our little family of 3. There are canoes and kayaks available for use and the bay is quiet enough to let my tween take a turn at paddling. They have gas grills for cookouts and even 2...

We came for Earth Day Weekend to do a Great full day Whale Watch with Maya's Legacy Whale Watch and stayed here for the first time. I had always admired it as it was being built but never stayed. We loved it. We stayed two nights and cooked our meals here. The place is just lovely and the staff is...

Thank you for your very observant review. We worked hard on the little details and it is gratifying when they are noticed and appreciated. We are very aware of the wifi signal challenge. As we speak fiber optic cabling is being laid in our neighborhood and we hope to be up with 21st century speed by summer. We currently have...

We came across Snug Harbor resort as we were researching places to stay and loved the idea of having multiple bedrooms for us and the kids and a kitchen to prepare our own food and save money on eating out. The staff was amazing and really helpful. They gave us recommendations for local hikes and helped get us set up...

What a jewel of a find. Looking for lodging on San Juan Island for a family get together, I came across Snug Harbor. The staff was very helpful in going over the different room configurations as we would need 4 rooms some to accommodate small children and others senior adults. Amazing thought went into the design, site placement, finishes, furnishings...

Thank you for noticing!! We've tried very hard to include everything we would want in a place to stay in our cabins and get rid of all the things we found annoying in our travels, such as resort fees, extra charges for simple things, expensive gifts stores and on resort coffee. We appreciate your comments very much.

My husband and I stayed last weekend in a one bedroom waterfront cabin and we loved it. Cozy wood interior with a gas fireplace and enough of a kitchen for the two of us. A little nook dining table set by the windows is nice so you can look outside while eating or playing scrabble and enjoy the landscaping and...

We recently returned to Snug Harbor, a place we had known as teenagers, and had the most positive experience. Besides all of the changes (which were great) we had very friendly service.

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
