We came for Earth Day Weekend to do a Great full day Whale Watch with Maya's Legacy Whale Watch and stayed here for the first time. I had always admired it as it was being built but never stayed. We loved it. We stayed two nights and cooked our meals here. The place is just lovely and the staff is...

We came across Snug Harbor resort as we were researching places to stay and loved the idea of having multiple bedrooms for us and the kids and a kitchen to prepare our own food and save money on eating out. The staff was amazing and really helpful. They gave us recommendations for local hikes and helped get us set up...

What a jewel of a find. Looking for lodging on San Juan Island for a family get together, I came across Snug Harbor. The staff was very helpful in going over the different room configurations as we would need 4 rooms some to accommodate small children and others senior adults. Amazing thought went into the design, site placement, finishes, furnishings...

Thank you for noticing!! We've tried very hard to include everything we would want in a place to stay in our cabins and get rid of all the things we found annoying in our travels, such as resort fees, extra charges for simple things, expensive gifts stores and on resort coffee. We appreciate your comments very much.

My husband and I stayed last weekend in a one bedroom waterfront cabin and we loved it. Cozy wood interior with a gas fireplace and enough of a kitchen for the two of us. A little nook dining table set by the windows is nice so you can look outside while eating or playing scrabble and enjoy the landscaping and...

We recently returned to Snug Harbor, a place we had known as teenagers, and had the most positive experience. Besides all of the changes (which were great) we had very friendly service. Ours was a family reunion and most of us had been there many years ago and it was fun to revisit our times together at the resort. The...

Thank you for choosing Snug Harbor for your special family reunion. This is what our resort is designed for. A lot of comfortable time interacting with others away from the distraction of life. Whether it is with family members or new friends you've made since arriving on the island, time with others is unavoidable. Thank you for returning to see...

What a wonderful place to escape for a few nights for a girls' getaway! We had a beautiful, unobstructed view of the harbor, a cozy wood (gas) fire, and a small, well furnished kitchen to cook when we weren't eating out. We both LOVED this place and truly didn't want to leave. In fact, there were a few times we...

We like to think we are the perfect location and it appears you agree. There is no other accommodation option on San Juan Island that offers what we offer. Thank you for your review and for choosing us for your maiden voyage to the San Juan's. We hope you will return soon.

Everything was perfect. The Location, friendly Staff, warm and inviting room were exactly what we were looking for to recharge and relax. Highly recommended for those who want to get away. The personal touch of calling us ahead of arrival telling us the room was ready early and we could check in any time we wanted. A+

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
