All our stress melted away at this beautiful location. We loved the quite harbor views and the proximity to great boating and kayaking. I think the owners attention to detail is fantastic and their interest in the protecting the environment shows with all they have done in the resort. Highly recommend.

We stayed in one of the two-bedroom cabins for two nights in mid-June. It was obvious that the owners were in the home stretch of renovations. The check in desk, coffee shop and "store" weren't quite ready. But, it didn't detract from out trip too much. The cabin was well-stocked and large enough for my family of five. The views... More

My husband and I stayed in Unit 2 for the July 4th weekend. We have stayed here in years past, even camped on the property when it was available. We have loved the location for years and have rediscovered Snug Harbor Resorts charm with the new renovations. We were lucky enough to be the first to stay in Unit 2,... More

We stayed her during their renovation in one of the new units. They have done a super job with the new units. I believe they have completed the renovation and all are new or like new. We love this spot because of the location and the quality of the units. If you go out of the harbor and turn left... More

This was our 1st time on San Juan Island and Snug Harbor Resort was a superb place to stay especially with the new waterfront cabins - we had uninterrupted views of Snug Harbor and Marina. Our cabin was brand new and we were the 1st couple to stay in it! We were also able to take a whale watching trip... More

Rented a two-bedroom cabin for the weekend. Incredible setting, peaceful, beautiful and quiet! Cabins are new, modern, clean and comfortable! Borrowed the canoes and built a fire in the fire pit on the beach! This place is truly paradise.

My family went here for the Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The cabins are wonderful and the staff is great!! It is charming, peaceful, and a beautiful location. We used the canoes and had a campfire at night, and were able to take a whale watching tour right from the marina. We are hoping to go back... More

Would have given this property a 5 but of course there's construction and "tweeking" going on...We knew this ahead of time, so expected it...and got a better rate. That being said, we two couples stayed in Cabin 13, wonderful view, well-equipped kitchen, bbq, deck, comfy beds and beautiful interior. It's a great location to explore the island.

I took my wife and kids here for Mother's day last weekend for only one night. I now wish we had been able to stay longer. Though the property was undergoing a lot of construction, it didn't affect our stay one bit and our cabin was brand new. When this resort is fully complete it's bound to be popular. It's... More
