The picturesque web site is hardly what greets one when arriving at Snug Harbor. We rented a "cabin" on the water for 2 nights at $219/night. What we found was a small, single wide mobile home (pocket doors, miniature spaces etc..) dressed up like a cabin right next to the noisy gravel parking lot. The small space had a cute loft for my 3 children to sleep in (it's only saving grace). We soon started noticing ants crawling everywhere inside the "cabin". It wasn't until the 2nd day that I noticed the small "do not drink the water" sign posted by the kitchen sink. By that time we had all drunken the water. One week later, we all came down with terrible symptoms of itching, chills etc. My doctor said that we had contracted parasites most likely from the water on our trip to the Snug Harbor Resort (because of the timeline). We are still dealing with symptoms and I will never go back and hope that everyone take my warning as a travelor and mom. Totally not worth the money or trouble!
