We rented lakefront cabin 9. The cabin is wonderfully updated, clean, and modern. Nice to have conveniences of kitchen, with coffee supplied! The view was beautiful of the lake. The location of this resort is on the opposite side of the island from Friday Harbor, so quiet and rural. Our only issue was that our small kids were quite bored,...

Thank you for the review and we do usually try to get groups booked together with cabins near each other. Since we are so small groups do stick out more and have the effect you described. I'm sorry your children were bored. Usually the bay and beach area are quite clean, washed by the daily tidal exchange. I can recommend...

We stayed in a one bedroom cabin for two nights, we were sad to leave. The cabins were immaculate, tastefully decorated and really comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We sat out at the fire pits two nights with other guests; really friendly atmosphere and enjoyable.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage and it was very nice. Views from all the cabins and grounds are well kept. Unit very clean and supplied with basics: coffee pot and toaster but no blender. Basic dishes and utensils and BBQ very clean. Windows clean. Compact bedrooms with comfy beds. Coffee shop and lobby areas all clean as well....

Thank you for the recommendation of adding a blender to our kitchen items. We will consider that as we review how to improve our offerings moving forward.

The resort was well located for our event that was at Roche Harbor. It is on a lovely small bay with nice beach walking, boats to look at, etc. The room was very nice and roomy with comfortable bed and furniture. We did not cook.

Great place to stay! Every cabin has a great view. They offer free kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards. Our group went out one morning and saw multiple harbor seals swimming within feet of our canoes.

Thank you for the review. We love the wildlife around the bay and sometimes we have guests see deer and foxes walking right through the resort.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor. We stayed in a waterfront cabin which was about 40 feet from the ocean with great view of the marina and harbor. The cabin was new, provided modern "essentials" of television, blue ray player, gas stove (looks like wood stove but gas fed), comfortable bed, great full kitchen. The resort...

The resort was one of the highlights of our stay on the islands! The views are gorgeous, the property is extremely well maintained and they seem to have thought of every amenity.

Thank you for your review and comments on the resort. I do understand we had a group with multiple cabins from California with a number of kids who were very active.

As others have said, the resort property is very nice and the rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. That's the very good. But. We chose this property in part because of the peace and quiet others had raved about. Unfortunately, this weekend, there was what appeared to be a corporate retreat booked at the property. They were loud-- and not...

We apologize that we did not meet your expectations for your stay. The event you referenced started at 2:00 pm on Saturday and went until 8:00 pm Saturday.

We traveled here with another couple, and had two adjacent cabins, right down on the waterfront. We preferred this to a cabin up higher on the hill. We could have spent a week here after checking in.

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
