A little rustic, but clean and cozy. Great views on the ponies. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Even our dog felt at home there. Would definitely recommend (and have) to others.

We rented a cottage for an overnight getaway and it was our own little piece of heaven. The cottage was cozy..immaculate..and had everything we needed. It overlooked the harbor and it was just lovely. Our hostess Basia was simply wonderful. If you want a relaxed peaceful place to go this would be the place. Cottages are nestled on the harborfront..wonderful... More

I found Snug Harbor Marina while searching the web the morning we left for Chincoteague. We had no idea what we were in for, besides the photos on their website, so we were a little nervous since we have never been to Chincoteague before. I owners John and Bosha knew we would be there until late that night, so Bosha... More

We loved staying here! The cabin & grounds are very clean & well-cared for. We also liked that you could rent a boat, fish, sunbathe, picnic, take a pontoon ride, or kayak right there! Also within walking distance to park or trolley stop. Jump in the car & the beach is minutes away. Bring your bikes!

This review is for the marina's rental services, not the cottage lodging. Snug Harbor Marina is on the Assateague side of Chincoteague Island (on the channel that separates the two islands and is just down the road from Assateauge Explorers and Etta's Channelside Restaurant. It rents out kayaks (single or double), canoes, and powerboats. Kayaks are available for half-day or... More

Recommended by a friend, this place is a little slice of tranquility. It is quiet, comfortable and peaceful. The cottages are clean and well equipped. Be aware that they are small though. They were built in the 1950's and you can tell. Comfortable for 2, pushing it for 4. We were in #9. That being said, the proximity to the... More

I found Snug Harbor Cottages on short notice. So short that traditional deposit methods were not possible. Basia was enthusiastic and accommodating! I normally opt for a swank full service property but needed some rest and tranquility... and some down to earth grounding. The moment I arrived the horses were visible on Assateaque Island. I was directed to my cottage.... More

We stayed here in September and we had the greatest and most relaxing time ever. The location is unbeatable…right on the water with the view I will be dreaming of until the next year when we go there again  Our cottage was cute, cozy and very clean. It had everything we needed and more including a kitchen with handmade... More

We stayed there in the fall and had the best time we have had for a long time. The place just makes you relaxed as soon as you check in. Cottages are right by the water with an oustanding view of the lighthouse and National Park. Many morinings we had coffee by the tiki huts and we saw all kinds... More

Visited Snug Harbor 1st weekend in October. Was so excited to get to the see the wild ponies. Well guess what? The government shut-down prevented anyone from getting into the wildlife preserve on Assateague Island. The had it closed down. Wasn't going to let that spoil the weekend. Snug Harbor is a nature lover's paradise. If you love sunrise &... More
