We stayed in a one bedroom cabin for two nights, we were sad to leave. The cabins were immaculate, tastefully decorated and really comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We sat out at the fire pits two nights with other guests; really friendly atmosphere and enjoyable.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage and it was very nice. Views from all the cabins and grounds are well kept. Unit very clean and supplied with basics: coffee pot and toaster but no blender. Basic dishes and utensils and BBQ very clean. Windows clean. Compact bedrooms with comfy beds. Coffee shop and lobby areas all clean as well.... More

The resort was well located for our event that was at Roche Harbor. It is on a lovely small bay with nice beach walking, boats to look at, etc. The room was very nice and roomy with comfortable bed and furniture. We did not cook.

Great place to stay! Every cabin has a great view. They offer free kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards. Our group went out one morning and saw multiple harbor seals swimming within feet of our canoes.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor. We stayed in a waterfront cabin which was about 40 feet from the ocean with great view of the marina and harbor. The cabin was new, provided modern "essentials" of television, blue ray player, gas stove (looks like wood stove but gas fed), comfortable bed, great full kitchen. The resort... More

The resort was one of the highlights of our stay on the islands! The views are gorgeous, the property is extremely well maintained and they seem to have thought of every amenity.

Thank you for your review and comments on the resort. I do understand we had a group with multiple cabins from California with a number of kids who were very active.

As others have said, the resort property is very nice and the rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. That's the very good. But. We chose this property in part because of the peace and quiet others had raved about. Unfortunately, this weekend, there was what appeared to be a corporate retreat booked at the property. They were loud-- and not... More

We apologize that we did not meet your expectations for your stay. The event you referenced started at 2:00 pm on Saturday and went until 8:00 pm Saturday. This group came in for the event, by car and boat, but the organizers did have 8 rooms overall spread around the resort. Any noise on Friday evening or Saturday night after... More

We traveled here with another couple, and had two adjacent cabins, right down on the waterfront. We preferred this to a cabin up higher on the hill. We could have spent a week here after checking in. The cabins are clean and beautifully appointed. No detail was left unattended. Great linens, comfortable bed, a nice supply of clean towels. The... More

Stayed one night - wish it could have been longer - in a 2-bedroom log cabin that was in better condition than my own home! Wonderfully welcoming, clean, comfortable, everything we needed for a relaxing evening before a whale cruise the next morning.

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
