I spent 5 nights at Snug Harbor, in what was advertised as a "1 Bedroom cottage", but which was neither one bedroom nor a cottage. It was actually a tiny studio motel room that shared a wall with other rooms on both sides, with plywood paneled walls and a futon with a broken frame for my son to sleep on. You could hear people in the rooms next door, and the bathroom was so small that you couldn't really have two people in there at the same time. And, for this I paid the same rates I'd paid the year before for a whole week in a large, 2-bedroom house in another location. Not what I'd envisioned for my once-a-year family vacation.
But, once I kissed the money goodbye and resigned myself to the accommodations, I actually had a really nice time there. As other reviewers have mentioned, John, who runs the place, is really nice. I highly recommend renting one of his little motorized skiffs for fishing in the channel. The water is calm and you can go see the horses while catching all kinds of fish (we even caught a puffer fish). The dock there doesn't have a swimming area (you have to drive across to Assateague for that), but it's great for relaxing, fishing, crabbing. And, the view of the lighthouse and the channel is awesome. All in all, I'd give it a mixed review.
