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...

Stayed over night and wished I had more time... These cabins are new, modern and clean. If you want a quiet stay on an island then this is the place to go to. Please make sure you reserve your spot on the ferry. We were the last car to get on the ferry.

Our experience could not have been more relaxing and peaceful. Note: the location is the opposite side of the island from the main "town" so it is certainly quiet (a plus for our vacation!). We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to return!

AbigailLynn, It always makes us feel like we have been successful when a guest lets us know we have exceeded their expectations. We are very happy to hear we provided such a relaxing and peaceful experience. We believe we offer the most unique accommodation experience on San Juan Island. There is simply no one else that can offer waterfront cabins,... More

It was just perfect weekend getaway for my family. We just brought meat and some seafood for BBQ party and it turned out the exact way that we wanted. The facility had the rest. In addition, It was super clean and comfortable. Enjoy the cleanness and fresh air!

We loved everything about this place! Peaceful, quite and well maintained. The front desk staff was really helpful and everything we could have needed while staying here was on premises. There are kayaks and a canoe onsite for guest use as well as a wonderful fire pit and workout facility. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed at the Snug Harbor Resort on March 10 & 11, 2015. The service was excellent and the cabins are amazing.
