We've made going back to Snug Harbor a yearly thing. It is one of the most relaxing and scenic places we've ever visited. The cabin is great (we stay in one of the waterfront 1 BR cabins, but they all look nice), the kitchen is pretty well stocked, and the view out Mitchell Bay is great. Having kayaking and whale watching trips leave from the dock is a bonus. And, the staff is helpful and friendly.

I was going to say "it isn't cheap", but for a waterfront modern cabin, with very nice furniture and great views... well worth the price. Every year, we start thinking about our next year's visit, and how we should stay longer.

Room Tip: We like waterfront, but all of the cabins looked pretty good to us.

Thank you for writing the review. And thank you for clarifying on the price, saying it is well worth it. There are definitely cheaper places to stay but I don't think there is a better value. Having the use of kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, crab pots, crab cookers, firewood (when there's no burn ban), and bikes, all at no additional charge, is not offered anywhere else on the island that I know of. Other destination resorts tag on big resort fees. And we're the only resort that is right on the water, with a marina, community fire pits and bbq's. Our coffee shop charges less than the ones I frequent on the mainland. And everything that is at the resort is either ferried or flown in at great expense that is not passed on to the guests.

We're also very fortunate that Crystal Seas Kayaking and Maya's Legacy Whale Watching choose to run their businesses out of our marina, affording our guests top quality educational recreation as well as the ease of a short walk to meet them. Mitchell Bay is the closest to where those activities are at their best, on the west side of San Juan Island.

We're happy to be a part of your annual island vacation and do not take that honor lightly. We know you can spend your hard earned money at other places and we will continue to work hard to be the place you choose and to make you feel you've spent your money well.

We could not have been more pleased.....from the welcome to the good-bye! Peaceful, relaxing, comfortable ..every positive adjective applies!!!

The waterfront balcony afforded a great space to view the harbor and the activities...yet it was very gentle and quiet...just perfect

Room Tip: Suite on the WaterFront

I hosted a reunion of old college buddies and their wives at Snug Harbor Resort. I do not know how it could have been better. The only thing better than the facilities were the staff. Any question we asked or request we made were answered with the utmost of helpfulness and grace. The facilities are perfectly designed for short term visitors.

Electric ranges were challenging to cook on. The refrigerator pooled water but overall facilities were great!

Hey, Jeff, I'm so glad we met, and it sounds like exceeded, your expectations! We are blessed with an amazing staff for sure. But I can honestly say, our guests are really terrific, too. There is an ease and comfort that permeates the property for which we cannot take the credit. People are just relaxed at Snug.
I hope that given your great experience you might try our services for there interests as well. Snug is a great place in the shoulder seasons for family reunions, weddings, corporate retreats, you name it. And it's also a great gift idea for loved ones or top performers at work.
Thanks for the review and we look forward to seeing you again!

We were having a mini vacation with our two adult daughters. Arrived at Snug Harbor on the 5th and our unit was ready ahead of schedule. Check in was easy. our suite was clean and as advertised looking right out at the cove. Very relaxing. Everything we needed was there. Property is well maintained.

Would stay again on our next visit!

Room Tip: All suites and cabins have a view of the cove. Parking was convenient. There is no a/c but fans are in the suites/units.

We stayed in a one bedroom, waterfront cabin. It was clean and cozy, with a modern vibe and nice view of the marina. The staff was friendly and helpful. The resort provides guests with the use of kayaks in the protected inlet free of charge The inlet waters are calm, which made kayaking easy for us. The fitness room, while small, has a great view and modern equipment. Relaxing atmosphere.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and thank you for mentioning the fitness room. Whenever I go on a business trip and have to stay in a hotel one of the first things I look at is the fitness room. So many are jam packed with cardio and no room to use weights or the floor. So though ours at Snug Harbor is small with only three pieces of cardio equipment, dumb bells and bench, and the Hoist universal gym, there's room for yoga and stretching. I'm glad you enjoyed using it!
