Travelers' Choice
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".

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Snug Harbor. It's in a gorgeous location, the property is very well kept, the cabins are fabulous, and the staff is extremely friendly/accommodating. We also loved the complimentary access to many recreational activities such as lawn games, kayaks, and paddle boards! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. It was definitely a special place to spend our anniversary, and one we will never forget!

We arrived at Snug Harbor later than planned due to ferry issues. Instructions were provided for after hour check-in. Snug Harbor is in a great location in Mitchell Bay, very secluded and quiet. Our one bedroom waterfront cabin # 6, had a full kitchen, living room and a queen bed in the bedroom. Directly in front of the cabin on the grassy area is a picnic table and closer to the lobby area is a fit pit. We enjoyed the outdoors until the stars came out at night, which was really after 10p. It was nice to be able to cook in the cabin and then eat the meals at the picnic table. During low tide, you can walk along the beach. We signed up for the kayaking trip with Crystal Seas that leaves directly from the dock at the resort. It was a real treat!

The property is located on the bay and small enough that we felt like we were the only ones in the area. Great water activities are included in the pricing. Gabby at the front desk is fabulous. Her recommendations for food and things to do were perfect. She was always ready to assist with a smile. We checked in late and they called us and sent all the check in information by mail so we did not even have to stop by the office. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained.

This is our third year coming here for a birthday treat. We stayed 4 wonderful days. The sight is beautiful, right on the water with lovely grounds. The cabins are warm, light, and have ac very well stocked kitchen. That was important with limited restaurant service on the Island due to the virus. There are good groceries on the way from the ferry if you want to eat in. There is a BBQ on the deck, a picnic table plus a great kitchen table. Excellent precautions are being taken and we felt very safe. The office staff is very responsive to your needs and requests. We always go to Westcott oyster farm for oysters and clams. A special island treat.
