No one wants to write a bad review. Unfortunately, this trip was the low-light of my summer. It was my THIRD stay at this resort in three years and sadly ended on a very sour note due to the mismanagement of the place. What you would like: The view from the property is lovely and Mitchell Bay is spectacular. That... More

This was our first visit and found this to be a great location, a nice harbor and a great facility. Our 2 bedroom cabin was perfect and with a great view. The staff was outstanding and the "smiling" manager was fun to talk with - you just felt good after talking to him. We enjoyed kayaking in the harborwith the... More

We had a simply amazing time at Snug Harbor Resort and Marina in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Seattle. This resort recently upgraded all of their cabins, and each has a breathtaking water view. Part of our nightly ritual was to watch moonrise. Snug Harbor is a bit isolated, but the San Juan shuttle service does frequent... More

Snug Harbor Resort is practically perfect. Located away from other tourist locations but close enough to go there at any time. We caught crab off the dock, used the resort kayaks and paddle boards and had a wonderful time. The cabins are excellent. The resort personnel were all friendly and very helpful. We plan to go back again.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary weekend. We were looking for a place away from the hustle of the city, and he wanted me to experience the San Juan Islands before we left Washington in the next move. This was the perfect place for just that. Easy to find, out of the way, peaceful and beautiful. The... More

The cabins are cozy, exceptionally clean and designed perfectly. They did not skimp on any details. The fire pit area was a real treat, stocked not only with wood and kindling but also long forks for roasting marshmallows! The grill outside our cabin was perfect too. Top notch place!

Beautiful, spotless, friendly staff. A splurge, but worth it! The BBQ grills are a nice touch. There were families but it's not Disneyfied so as a couple in our 40's we were comfortable. Also went kayaking with Crystal Seas. Very nice experience, but just make sure you clarify where you are meeting them.

Snug Harbor Resort's water front cabins are very clean, brand new and well equipped. The units are well decorated and details are well thought. They have fire-pits, grills, kayaks, bikes etc. They have a store that sell coffee and some pastries also a small market. The personnel are excellent, very friendly and helpful. If you visit a grocery store before... More

Our family of 4 just loved it! It was home away from home, with all the modern conveniences but peace and quiet of the island life. Staying in the new cabin is just amazing - everything you need in the kitchen and bathroom, beautiful decor, fresh smell of wood (hope it will stay that fresh and well taken care of... More
