We were looking for a spot to meet our kids and grandson to visit before their return to Maui. We choose Snug Harbor and are so glad we did!! The cabins were great to stay in....so beautifully built with great big picture windows overlooking the bay. Our kids loved paddle boarding all around Mitchell Bay and we were close to...

We are so happy to hear you had such an amazing experience. We are a great place to come with children of any age. Between our on property options of kayaking, paddle boards and canoes, along with our expansive grass areas and the nearby hikes it is an active kids paradise. The best part is that parents don't have to...

You know the adage about if a person is rude to a waiter or hostess, then they are probably not a nice person. Along those lines, I was not a guest at the resort but walked in and inquired about where to launch a kayak. The blonde girl in the lobby with the crooked teeth ( I only mention that...

I'm very sorry for the experience you encountered. I actually don't know what to say. One of our strongest points is the amazing staff we are blessed with as attested to in so many other reviews.

I spent four nights here and I did not want to leave. The cabin is well equipped and the cleanest place I have ever stayed! The cabins appear to be new and very well maintained. We used the provided grill one night and it also appeared to be barely used. The location is so nice, very quiet, deer wandering by,...

Stayed here for three days with two other couples - nice location, individual cabins that are nearly new, well designed and well-maintained, small store, kayaks, Secluded and quiet - the property served as a good base for exploring the San Juan Islands.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Snug Harbor Resort with others. We definitely aren't perfect but we continue to strive towards that goal. I know we will never reach it but we enjoy making little tweaks to keep moving that direction. Hope to see you again in the future.

Log cabins are new, clean, and staff is extremely kind. This is our second trip to Snug Harbor, the first time was May 2015. We brought some friends with us this time, and had a great time.

You know one of the best kept secrets. An easy arrival by boat from the mainland, dock in the marina and enjoy our cabins. Congratulations on your planning. It sounds like you had every angle covered for an wonderful stay and the crabbing is excellent in the bay.

quite and accessible--a good jumping off point to all of San Juan Island (The San Juan Islands, Washington). Just remember, there is only a coffee shop and gift shop-both very good. This is a good, small marina location and good for families.

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
