Great new cabins that are fully equipped and private. Some construction was still being done at the time of our visit and the Mitchell Bay Coffee Shop was not yet open. Still our family had a wonderful 4 - night stay and hope to return again soon.

Mitchell Bay Coffee is open year round. We continue to find little ways to improve the resort so our guests will always have a truly memorable visit. We hope you will return soon. More

The rooms are great, the service friendly and the location is amazing. We went with two kids and grandparents and the two bed room was just perfect! We had a great time there and would highly recommend it if you're looking for a nice quiet relaxing getaway.

My girlfriend and I just moved to Seattle earlier this year from the east coast. After a couple months of dreary weather spent in the city, we decided to get the heck out of town on a whim. On others' advice, we decided on the San Juan Islands. We looked at hotels directly in the town of Friday Harbor, but... More

We are so pleased that you had such an amazing visit for your first San Juan Island experience.

The peace and solitude of our winter season is especially... More

Wonderful wonderful secret hide away. It would be wrong for me to not leave a review.... I hate to share this amazing place for fear it will booked next time I come!! But it is a must place to stay if you don't want to be in the heart of downtown. It's just lovely. And the staff is so helpful!!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. The good news is that I don't think it will be to difficult to book a room in the off season in the San Juan Islands for a while yet. The secret is definitely out for summer and we are very busy, but winter seems to still be a well... More

Brought my hubby here for two nights as a surprise early birthday trip, and we were both beyond thrilled with the lovely cabins, friendly & attentive staff and beautiful natural setting! There was only one other guest here during our midweek stay, so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves! We stayed in a one bedroom waterfront... More

We are honored to be part of your first visit to the San Juan Islands. You had many fine choices but of course we are very pleased you chose us. I enjoy the coffee we have roasted for the cabins so much I've started drinking it at home. Being from Everett you know how blessed we are to call the... More

I actually hesitated to write this review because I don't want anyone to know about my perfect little hideaway on the islands. My husband and I were there for three days during the month of November and it was just blissful. Staying in a waterfront cabin allowed us to open the windows which line the entire front of the cabin... More

We've just had a wonderful long weekend at Snug Harbor and I can whole heartedly recommend it for a winter getaway. Each cabin has a powerful cast iron gas fireplace in the front room (controlled by a thermostat on the wall), comfy bed(s) with down duvet(s), plenty of hot water, and Fidalgo Bay coffee to sip while you enjoy the...

Emily, Thank you for your review. It spurred us to do some research. We thought we couldn't have olive oils or spices, etc. due to the health department regulations but we were wrong. Next time you visit you'll find some of these types of items in the kitchens. Also, robes are on order and should be here soon. We continue... More

We had a wonderful weekend stay with my parents visiting from the UK. Great whale watching trip from the on site marina and we made full use of the camp fires, Kayaks and crab pots. A huge shout out to Lance, who helped my 12 year old son "deal" with the crabs he caught and then assisted us with cooking... More

We rented three cabins for a three day weekend with family. These are great little places and afford a measure of privacy. They're relatively new and well maintained and each had a nice view of the water. I imagine this place would be fantastic during summer. Check out time is 11a which is good becuase you want to get to... More

It sounds like you and your family had a wonderful San Juan Island experience. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. We also have an event room if that might help with a future visit for your group. It is a great home base for a large family re-union. More

Wonderful setting with very nice cabins. Everything you need was provided in the cabin. Ken Christensen was very nice and friendly during the check-in and check-out. Made you feel welcome. Beautiful views from the cabin. Suggest to visit the Alpaca Farm, 10 minutes drive from the resort. We will be back !!!!
