Place is superb -- everything as advertised! So peaceful and quiet. Very clean. We stayed in Cabin #6. It wouldn't matter to most people but I even appreciated the interior workmanship of the cabin. Everything plumb and square. Would definitely make Snug Harbor Resort and Marina the only place we'd stay on San Juan!

Thank you for the high praise, there are a lot of good choices on places to stay and we value your commitment to us. It is the small things, like the work being plumb and square, that make the resort wonderful, details, details, details. We notice also and worked hard on every little aspect of the cabins and the resort.... More

What a great place to stay!! Staff was incredible, and the cabins are absolutely beautiful! We were there at low season and very wet weather, so we were not able to enjoy the kayaks or SUP boards on Mitchell Bay. Cabins are very well appointed with kitchenettes. Buy groceries at Friday Harbor prior to arrival, because you won't want to... More

What a wonderful peaceful resort. We were looking for a comfortable quiet place. We have always visited San Juan Island via our own boat, but wanted to do a car trip for a real change. We even extended our stay for an additional night. The nice kitchen allowed us to go to the great King's grocery store in Friday Harbor,... More

Last minute, out of town getaway and couldn't have been happier! I received a phone call from the staff while we were on the road heading there. Just to let us know that our room would be open if we arrived after 6pm. The entire setting was peaceful. The cabin was PERFECT. Very clean and perfectly appointed. Nice fireplace. Nice... More

We stayed at Snug Harbor for the first time, over New Year's Weekend. Beautiful remote location, gorgeous and impeccable cabin. Cozy, comfortable, amazing view. All the necessities we needed. Friendly and well-informed staff. We had zero complaints or concerns and will absolutely be back when the weather is warmer, so we can enjoy the outside firepit and kayaks. Loved it!

Snug Harbor Resort is a fantastic little getaway! The cabins are just right with everything you need. Even though our weather was not great while there, the cozy fireplace kept us "snug" as a bug!

We had enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend at Snug Harbor Resort. The cabin is amazing with complete facilities, the water is so calming to watch, the staffs are accomodating, this place is perfect if you sort of want to escape from stress and busy life.

Amazing! It was relaxing. Clean and new. I loved that they had kayaks and boats complimentary to take out on the water. We just went there for whale watching (and saw Orcas with Jim Maya!) and ended up staying an extra night because we liked it so much.

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
