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 enjoyed two wonderful nights here with our four kids (ages 3-6). The resort could not have been a more perfect place to enjoy a long weekend together. The cabin was very clean, cozy and comfortable. The resort’s on site activities were also great for my kids. Canoeing for my oldest and yard games that everyone enjoyed for happy hour. We cooked our dinners in the cabin, played games and watched movies in the evening. S’mores by the fire pit was a fun treat for the kids as well. Mitchell Bay coffee onsite was a perfect spot for a quick breakfast before heading out for the day’s activities. Finally, Barbara at the front desk was extremely friendly. We loved the low key atmosphere and privacy of Snug Harbor Resort and plan to make this an annual trip for our family.

What a wonderful place to stay on the island. Right on the marina, its a quaint, quiet, cozy and clean place to relax! Far enough from town for P&Q, but close enough to all the things! Will definitely be going back!

Snug Harbor Resort is an awesome place to retreat from the craziness of life. Our upper level cabin was private and peaceful, and so cozy and comfy - with a lovely view of the harbor. Excellent staff, but overworked. The kayaks are a nice addition too. However, I slept on the sofa bed, which is the worst bed I’ve ever slept on! So don’t try it. Nearby are amazing places to walk and watch the sunset- Lime Kiln State Park and lighthouse, and San Juan County Park. English Camp is another lovely place to explore. Fabulous Island - we shall return!

Thank you for your visit and for writing a review. Sofa beds are not ideal for adults bodies and I'm sorry you found this was not an exception. We offer second bedrooms with a variety of bed formats: two twins, queens, and kings. Lime Kiln Park is listed as the best place on the planet to view whales from land. It sounds like you got around to several of the special places on San Juan.

Overall, I had a great experience with the location, the staff which was incredibly friendly and helpful. The amenities were great. The room/house was wonderful, clean and cozy. A perfect place to step out and away from a busy life and to celebrate a birthday weekend. Thank you.

Excellent all around. Nicely appointed, rustic cabins. Next time will upgrade to king size beds. Just one bathroom, might be tight for 2 couples. The staff is very nice and welcoming. Next time we will stay longer. One caveat, getting in and out of San Juans is getting very complicated due to Ferry service issues in WA. Check that out before you go there as you might get stuck as we did...

When you return, you will find the larger cabins with the king beds are a little roomier all around. The bathrooms in these units have two vanity sinks and plenty of elbow room. I'm sorry the ferries proved to be a challenge for you. As with so many businesses and industries now, Washington State Ferries has experienced staffing issues. Hopefully things will let up soon.
