What a pleasant surprise. The owners have done a great job updating the entire resort and the staff could not have been nicer. It was nice that they had a coffee stand downstairs with light breakfast items. The resort is only a 10 minute drive to either Roche Harbor or downtown Friday Harbor.

The location is top-notch and the cabins are clean and well-appointed. However, they are probably best for a family with small children. There is only one shared bathroom off the family space. Although we did enjoy the opportunity to disconnect, the Wi-Fi is pretty inconsistent and because we were conducting some business during our stay, we found we would have... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night for our anniversary. The resort was amazing and I only wish we would have stayed longer. We were in room 3 which is one of 3 suites that sit above the resort lobby and cafe so no one is above or below you. The suite sits close to the water and... More

First the cabins are very cute and cozy! Some had chairs on a front porch and others had picnic tables and all had gas grills. I was very quite sitting outside and for about an hour one day watched two bald eagles fly over the harbor fishing! We didn't get around to using the kayaks wish we had more time.... More

My jaw literally dropped when I opened the door to our suite. What a gorgeous suite with an amazing view! We stayed in suite 3 in the main building and it perfectly suited our needs in every way. You could tell immediately that they took special care and consideration with the design and decorations for the rooms and the resort... More

The cottage at Snug Harbor was nicely decorated, practical, clean. We spent two nights in this quiet, cute marina, first morning woke up early and sat at the dock. saw a bold eagle fishing, later on chased by a vulture , a fishing harbor seal, a deer that past the cottage, a blue heron.... we left for a quick ride...

The new, beautiful, well stocked, well appointed cabins set on this picturesque, calm lagoon makes for fantastic get away. Our cabin included all the kitchen functionality we needed to make tasty meals, and even included a gas grill on the deck. Michelle was very helpful as we checked out kayaks and bicycles they provide. They even supply firewood and a... More

We really enjoyed our week at Snug Harbor. We stayed in a one bedroom suite above the coffee shop. Rooms are clean and have everything you need in them. After arriving by ferry, we bought a pizza at San Juan Bakery(I'll review that later)and brought it back to our room to bake. So nice to sit on the deck and... More

Cindy, I know Minnesota has a lot of water also, I hope you enjoyed spending some time on our water. I agree that a quite evening on one of the decks of the suites is an amazing way to spend time. Last Spring I was on the deck of Suite 1 and had an eagle go right past at eye... More

The staff has wonderful customer service, the location is so serene and beautiful, the price is right, and all accommodations are above and beyond. I usually don't stay in the same places twice, because I like to experience as much as possible, but I can't wait to come here again! The cabins are new, perfectly clean, uuuber comfortable, and totally... More

Arielleilani, Now it's my turn to say Wow!. Thank you for the expansive and wonderful review covering so many details of our efforts. I can honestly say, as we started to plan the resort, amenities, cabins and interiors one of our main goals was to elicit a "wow" from our guests. We worked hard, on many details, in many areas...

The title of the resort is more than apt. A beautiful, quiet and secluded location for the chance to slow down and enjoy the abundant nature and scenery all around. We were fortunate to enjoy an afternoon of whale watching that took us out on the waters around the island. Saw many whales and followed them for several hours. Coming... More

Ken, I'm so glad we were able to provide, "just what the doctor ordered". There is a special serenity around the harbor, especially in the mornings and evenings. I also think there a few things more amazing that seeing our majestic whale population. Glad you had a successful trip on the water. Thank you for taking the time to share... More
