Perfect in summer or winter - cabins, but with just enough design and convenience to make them un-rustic. Kitchen amenities, coffee provided and lots of towels. Also, each cabin has its own Weber grill and picnic table so super easy to eat in. Mitchell Bay is quiet and surrounded by private homes other than this resort, so it's un-touristy. Seals... More

Cabins are new with a well stocked kitchen. Everything about this place was enjoyable and relaxing. The view of the harbor was great. It rained while we were there but the cabin was warm and cozy thanks to the fire place.

We came here to do some writing and get away from distractions. This is the perfect place for this. Each cabin and suite has a small kitchen furnished with cooking tools, pots, pans. oven. stove, etc. The place is very spacious and looks out on Mitchell bay. There is not a bad view in any cabin or suite. Quiet, private,... More

Peaceful resort but yet not totally isolated. A holiday home with all the amenities: refrigerator, microwave, toaster, knives, chopping board, plates, cups, utensils, cutleries, etc. Some condiments too like salt and pepper. Direct TV with almost 40 channels, DVD player & an stereo player with an older iPhone dock. The suite was warm with the gas burning fireplace in the... More

Thank you for the detailed review and the nice compliments on Ken. He does a fantastic job and having others recognize it is always rewarding. We installed the stairs leading to the parking and the waterfront path in the late fall and have not yet installed the lighting. It will be happening very soon. I have a sample fixture on... More

Lance will hook you up for crabbing - bring your license! Comfy romantic cabin - we were in #16 with a 180 degree view. Kitchenette has what you'll need to cook if you're interested. BBQ on your deck. Firepits for toasting marshmallows. A bit too cold for us to take advantage of the canoes (end of Dec). Peaceful little bay... More

The crabbing has been great this fall. I'm glad you got to experience crabbing right off of our docks for your dinner. Thank you for visiting Snug Harbor and for mentioning Lance. He is a very helpful member of our exceptional staff. We hope you will visit us again. More

This place is very clean and the scenery is beautiful. We looked at a few units while we were there and they all had the same high level of quality. The service was excellent and its a wonderful place to relax or enjoy the outdoors. We'll definitely be back.

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.

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.
