We have stayed on-site at Snug Harbor many times previously and our vacations just keep getting better and better. The owners go out of their way to give the guests the best vacation experience possible. You are only steps away from fishing, boating, and kayaking. They also have the best view of Assateague and the ponies are easily accessible by... More

We have stayed here many times and every time we go back I am reminded of how wonderful the location is. There is nothing better than stepping out your front door and being right at the water. We love to fish and kayak. Every morning I would rent a kayak and explore all of the creeks between Snug Harbor and... More

Spectral view, great marina, boats, kayaking, and crabbing. Fishing is awesome. Captain John and Basia are great. The cabins are very quaint and comfort. You will love the tiki bar and the smell of the salt air. I love having a beer and smoking a fine cigar.

First let's address the room and property. The room which was described as one bedroom was actually an efficiency which was certainly misleading. The bathroom was small with a cheap prefabricated shower. The stove was old and had seen better days. For more than $200/night I would have expected a microwave and more updated kitchen. The property was very dark... More

I would not tell anyone to stay there; it is over priced. The owner John is rudd to his clients. I spent a lot of mony at this place for the 2014 pony swim and was told that I can't take a boat out past the front of the marina after paying 400.00 for it was charged an extra 50$... More

A little rustic, but clean and cozy. Great views on the ponies. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Even our dog felt at home there. Would definitely recommend (and have) to others.

We rented a cottage for an overnight getaway and it was our own little piece of heaven. The cottage was cozy..immaculate..and had everything we needed. It overlooked the harbor and it was just lovely. Our hostess Basia was simply wonderful. If you want a relaxed peaceful place to go this would be the place. Cottages are nestled on the harborfront..wonderful... More

I found Snug Harbor Marina while searching the web the morning we left for Chincoteague. We had no idea what we were in for, besides the photos on their website, so we were a little nervous since we have never been to Chincoteague before. I owners John and Bosha knew we would be there until late that night, so Bosha... More

We loved staying here! The cabin & grounds are very clean & well-cared for. We also liked that you could rent a boat, fish, sunbathe, picnic, take a pontoon ride, or kayak right there! Also within walking distance to park or trolley stop. Jump in the car & the beach is minutes away. Bring your bikes!

This review is for the marina's rental services, not the cottage lodging. Snug Harbor Marina is on the Assateague side of Chincoteague Island (on the channel that separates the two islands and is just down the road from Assateauge Explorers and Etta's Channelside Restaurant. It rents out kayaks (single or double), canoes, and powerboats. Kayaks are available for half-day or... More
