Okay, this is my idea of camping: beautiful cabins facing the bay, all the amenities of electricity: stove, microwave, refrigerator; contemporary plumbing and comfortable furniture. We come here to relax, read and spend time with creative writing. Fire pits outdoors provide great evening ambiance; each cabin comes with its own grill and outdoor sitting area. Just wonderful! Internet remains hit-and-miss... More

Late summer/early fall, we stayed at three different places for three nights in the San Juan Islands. This was our favorite. Just booked again for this year and spending all three nights here. We will just travel to the other islands during the day but come back here at night. So, so beautiful and calm. Love the kayaks - we... More

Cabins was perfect and the location is beautiful. Well equipped, cozy, and just right for the 4 of us. Staff was very courteous too. Would have given 5 stars if there were more than 2 bikes/kayaks. We did take out the canoes to fit all of us and that was fun cuz we saw harbor seals right in Mitchell Bay.... More

Breath taking views, lovely apartment with fabulous location. Apartments great quality with lovely pebble shower and balcony with BBQ . Highlight was seeing a seal both in the evening and then in the morning while canoeing. Service really good. Would certainly go back.

There needs to be a way to rate this place higher then a five. Very rarely do you or can you find a place this perfect. It was not just one thing that made Snug Harbor Resort unremarkable. The grounds were immaculate the cabins were great and relaxing and the staff was the best group of people you'll ever meet... More

We just stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights at the end of March. It was just what we needed to rejuvenate and reconnect with each other. Talk about relaxing! The cabins are beautifully done with all the amenities you could ask for. We stayed in one of the waterfront cabins. It was great having a full, well-stocked kitchen... More

Snug Harbor Resort and Marina is located on the northwest part of San Juan Island, on Mitchell Bay. The resort consists of new, modern "cabins" that have large view windows and wonderful amenities- a well appointed kitchen, big screen TV, breakfast nook, living room with nice furniture, bedroom and bath. Plus a little deck with a picnic table and barbeque.... More

This resort is new with great suites and cabins. The construction used beautiful wood inside and out. The rooms are decorated for comfort and style. Away from Friday Harbor but only 15 minutes from the ferry. Good location to see the island. There aren't any restaurants, but a short drive fixes that. If you bring kids or just you ,... More

My two sisters planned a surprise birthday trip for my mother, it could not have been more perfect. Nothing went wrong, even the weather agreed. We had a lovely cabin with deer grazing no more then 20 feet from us, there was community campfires, canoes, kayaks and paddle boards which we took full advantage of. There was whale watching and...

I first became aware of Snug Harbor Resort while watching a TV commercial last Fall. It was a car commercial which featured SHR as a backdrop. (it took 30 minutes of googling to find out where it was!) After spending the night in Anacortes, we jumped on the ferry and made our way to SJI. We arrived at the resort... More

Terry, Wow, thank you for the glowing review and your efforts to find us. I tried to get the advertiser who was actually paying for the commercial to give us more name exposure but funny thing, they didn't want to, something about it being their commercial. :) I appreciate you working so diligently to find us and sharing your experience...
