All of our 17 cabins and three suites are spacious with beautiful interiors, expansive glass, vaulted ceilings, full kitchens, and uninterrupted, stunning views. Snug Harbor's incredible setting is unparalleled on San Juan Island. Arriving by boat is always an option, since we have our own private marina. We are perfectly located for adventures throughout the islands. Once you arrive and explore the resort, you will discover the unique features, comforts, and amenities provided to each of our guests. We strive to make each guest's visit amazing and memorable. We offer four paddle boards, two kayaks, canoes and bikes for the complimentary use by our guests. Our own Mitchell Bay Coffee is open daily offering an array of coffee beverages, local pastries, waffles, soups, and more. And if you are looking for somewhere to host an event, our new events room with seating for up to 50 is now available. When you come to Snug Harbor be ready to detach a little. This is an ideal place to unwind and relax (while we have free wi-fi throughout the property and great cell phone reception, there are no phones in the cabins). Allow the peace and serenity on Mitchell Bay overtake you. We believe our guests have said it best. One recent Trip Advisor review stated "This place is truly paradise" and our favorite Facebook post simply stated "The cabins are epic".

My husband and I have stayed at this facility and found it just lovely. The small cabins with private kitchens and a fireplace make it the perfect place to snuggle up. My only complaints? The mattresses and linens are mediocre. They are just fine but have the feel of being a little more "rustic" rather than a luxury. Nonetheless, one of our favorite places!

I dont even know where to start. The views from the ferry on the ride over from Ancortes were breathtaking. Upon arriving into San Juan Island, the picturesque and charming town of Friday Harbor is absolutely precious. I didnt think it could get any better until we took the incredibly short drive to Snug Harbor. Upon arrival, I gasped at the pure beauty of this wonderful little resort. The rustic, yet upscale cabins all have beautiful views of the water and the Marina. The owners thought of everything you could possibly want in this amazing water front resort. The staff is caring and so friendly. It doesnt get any better than this.

I'm so happy to read of your wonderful experience, Barbara. It sounds like the ferry ride through the San Juans was new to you. We are so blessed here in Washington state to have so many waterways and to be surrounded by mountains. We wanted Snug Harbor to be a restful oasis in the stunning beauty of nature already provided. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review!

Great resort. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The cabin and resort is exactly as pictured. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing! We had ferry issues and the front desk was helpful and helped guide us through late night checkin- a huge help given our stressful situation! Fun getaway.

I'm so glad we could help abate some of the stress caused by an unexpected change in arrival. Getaways are supposed to fun and rejuvenating so we try very hard to ensure that is our guests' experience. Thank you for posting that we were successful in that endeavor.

This beautiful retreat is an annual favorite for a girls’ trip. Quiet and beautiful location with a heavenly view and cozy cabins you can hide from the world in. Located about 20 minutes from Friday Harbor which is a fun town to explore.
