Our visit to the Snug Harbor Resort truly was the highlight of our entire Pacific Northwest trip! Our cabin was meticulously cleaned and very quaint. We were grateful that the construction wasn't an annoyance or an issue during our visit. The front lobby attendant Michelle (and the coffee barista too ) was so friendly and hospitable. She was equally gracious... More

Snug Harbor was the perfect place to get away to and relax with our family. The bay was quite calm, but yet provided access to sea kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding without having to leave the property. The accommodations were clean and new and comfortable. The views out the front glass windows were perfect. The staff went out of their... More

Nice peaceful location on San Juan Island. Very nice and new lodging with eco-friendly perks that are don't take away from your comfort. Check out the websites "things to do page" as it provides a nice list. We did the Legacy whale watching tour that departed right from the Snug Harbor Resort docks. Keep an eye out for the seal...

Our water view cabin was beyond wonderful. Clean, quiet, well stocked with dishes, towels, pans. Stove, microwave, good sized fridge/freezer. Ice available in lobby. The bed was very comfortable--sleeper sofa not so much. But I've never seen a comfortable sleeper! We used the complimentary kayaks twice, as well as the SUPs. Receptionist was friendly and very helpful. Enjoyed my morning... More

We had a suite and loved it! Super clean, cozy, amazing view and great staff! I was so looking forward to having a pit fire by the marina, but due to the drought, no fires allowed. I found a way to compromise...... See picture.....

I absolutely love your picture!! We sure wish we would get some rain to bring down the fire hazard and allow real fires in the evenings again. We certainly miss the evening s'mores. Thank you for such a wonderful photo and I hope you don't mind if we share it on our Facebook page. More

Of all the places we had reserved for our anniversary getaway, this is the one I looked forward to the most. After two nights near the ferry terminal of Friday Harbor, my husband and I couldn't wait to get to the other side of the island and enjoy the beauty and most of all, quiet peacefulness that I read so...

I'm very sorry for the experience you had while staying with us due to the construction. We had absolutely no intention of still being under construction in July. We also are very upset with the contractor for not adhering to his stated schedule. Unfortunately, we had no choice but to allow him to finish. It also sounds from your description... More

If you're looking for serene, beautiful scenery, good location, excellent accommodations, easy access to activities, and a wonderfully sweet staff - you're in the right place. The moment we arrived, I knew Snug Harbor was going to be magical in every way. The setting is absolutely lovely and you'll find yourself enjoying the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets (at least...

Dear Sonali, Cabin 16 was one of our first completed cabins and has such an enjoyable location perched on its small ledge with a commanding view of Mitchell Bay and the marina. We made a conscious decision when designing the cabins to make the bathroom and bedroom smaller and commit the maximum available space to the living area where people... More

We had a wonderful time at Snug Harbor Resort. The overall resort property setting is absolutely stunning. I don't normally take an excessive amount of pictures, but I found myself continuously snapping pics both in the am, throughout the day and in the evening. Sunsets are unbelievable. Made a lot of use of the kayaks and paddle boards. We all... More

Thank you for the nice comments. I agree that our sunsets are simply amazing. I frequently find guests down on the docks taking in the ever changing colors. There was even had a gentlemen with his guitar serenading everyone last weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. More

Seems like every cabin has an incredible view of this picturesque little harbor. Free kayak, SUP, and canoe use was a nice perk. Removed from the main town of Friday Harbor by about a 30 minute drive, which could be a plus or a minus, depending on your perspective. Staff seemed spread thin (don't be surprised if they don't answer... More

Just this weekend someone asked me what my favorite cabin is. As you observed, each cabin has its own amazing unique position and views. I find it simply impossible to decide on a favorite. The ongoing construction has put additional demands on our manager and part of our staff resulting in some shortcomings at the front desk. This has now... More

This resort looked awesome from Trip Advisor. In person it's much better. The sun was out every day that we were here. Beautiful pucet sound in front of the resort. The water temperature is 49 degrees 365 days a year. The Resort offers the ability to take out either the canoe or kayak for no charge, includes roasting marshmellows which... More

Thank you for the recommendations for us to improve guest experience at the resort. We continue to try to improve our internet service but the signal available to us on the far West end of the island has limitation. The island as a whole does not have the type of speeds available on the mainland. Fortunately, it does continue to... More
