Snug Harbor Resort is a perfect "getaway" from it all--super quiet, amazing views, easy access to all areas of the island. You definitely need a car if you're staying there as you'll need to drive into Roche Harbor or Friday Harbor for meals--unless you've packed it all with you. They do have kitchens, bar-b-ques, picnic tables, etc. The rooms were... More

My husband and I had this resort recommended to us by a co-worker, and it turned out to be very nice. The cabins were rebuilt in 2014, I believe, and have been nicely done inside. I loved the large windows looking out towards Snug Harbor and Mitchell Bay. We were able to watch a pair of sea otters playing in... More

My husband (!!!) and I just went to Snug Harbor for our honeymoon. We stayed in cabin 20 - it was so cozy, had everything we needed, and had a great view of the bay. We loved that we had easy and free access to the paddle boards, kayaks and fire pits and that we had our own BBQ and... More

Just spent three days at Snug Harbor with our son, daughter in law and grandsons. It was everything we had hoped. The Cabins were very clean and accommodating, ours was a two bedroom king beds on the hill with a pull out couch. More than enough room for all of us with a beautiful view of the bay!! Fully equipped... More

We stayed several nights here and the experience was pleasant. The service was good and they accommodated our late arrival easily. The cabins are very nice and gorgeous. The place was recently renovated and they did a great job. Location-wise they're only a short trip from Roche Harbor, and a bit longer one to Friday Harbor. That being said, I... More

The property/grounds, as well as the cabins, are amazing! It was a great place to shack up for a long weekend. One of two improvements I would suggest for Snug Harbor would be to have a mini-grocery/convenience store on sight. With Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor being 20+ minutes away it was a drag having to get back in the... More

We stayed at 'the snug' because it was ON San Juan Island, the larger of the islands...but it was "far away" from the main hub on the island - Friday Harbor. Best of both worlds, we hoped. We were right. The facility is immaculate and perfectly suited for a couple to get away, together. We spent hours reading, without distraction,... More

We LOVE this place. Whether for our parents 50th wedding anniversary (20+ of us there) or with just our girls on our boat this place is the best. Amazing wildlife, crabbing off the dock - though its better just at the mouth of the sound, Orca whales, eagles, seals herons, and much much more. 15 min boat ride to Roache... More

My wife and I spend a wonderful four days at Snug Harbor just prior to the July 4, 2016 holiday weekend. We arrived on Sunday and departed Thursday. After a wonderful one-hour ferry trip from Antecortes, arriving into Friday Harbor at around 1PM, we did some shopping and grabbed some lunch at Friday’s Crab House. While advertised check-in time was... More

Staying at this resort was the highlight of a really memorable trip. We were heading to Whidbey Island to meet family afterward, which was wonderful, and then to a waterfront view Airbnb in Seattle. However nothing matched the peaceful sleep and connection with nature I felt at Snug Harbor. I woke up at 6am every day to take in the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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". ... more   less
