My husband and I just spent four enjoyable and relaxing days here. Our hosts, John and Basia, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Cottage was perfect for us and super comfortable and clean. The view was lovely. This was just what the doctor ordered. I would highly suggest the eco tour on John’s new boat. The man knows and loveshis water.

This is our second stay at Snug Harbor this summer and with our family of 4 + a small dog, having our own clean cottage with a beautiful water view is the best R&R the whole family can have! Staff is very friendly and was easy to check in/out. We enjoyed the beach, only 10mins drive, during the day and were able to do crabbing at the Snug Harbor docks at night, which kept the whole family busy in the evening. We will definitely return and continue to refer to friends

I would highly recommend staying anywhere else. We had a terrible experience checking in to what was supposed to be a relaxing weekend. The price is per person. We did not know this and upon check in we were charged an extra $200.. The customer service was awful and we left and found a better place to stay.

Response from Snug Harbor, Owner at Snug Harbor Marina and Cottages
Responded 29 Sep 2020
We have a winner for the 2020 bad apple of the year award, Susan Lynch of Lutherville Maryland. We have seen many customers this season and most of the people have been fantastic with great attitudes and most have been so generous towards our staff and management but we have had a few bad apples and this one takes the cake. Mrs. Lynch books online with Tripadvisor and when making the booking lies about how many people she has, when making the booking she said only 2 people for a waterfront cottage but she showed up with 4 people and a dog. We then told her the balance for the additional people and also the dog and she was reluctant to pay the hotel for the additional money owed. We reminded her that all prices and charges are posted on Tripadvisor and we also sent an email directly to her stating all the charges when she made the booking, she then said I don't think I need to pay that and if you make me pay I will leave you bad feedback, what do you think about that. Well our company policy on feedback extortion is this, if you try it you will be asked to leave the property and not allowed back. That is exactly what we told Susan Lynch, you are not welcome here you will have to find other accommodations, at this time the husband is getting upset and dropping F bombs like seagulls drop poop. We then know we made the right decision. The worst part about this story is that their two young children were with them during this meltdown. Snug Harbor is one of the longest running hotels on Chincoteague island and the reason we have been in business so long is that we cater to families and do not tolerate behavior like this. We always maintain a safe and friendly family atmosphere. We did ask these people to leave and found them other accommodations to stay. The moral of the story is that you should never lie when making your online bookings it will never end well!

It is a great place to stay!! Our cottage was bigger and very nice. It was very clean. The kids were able to fish from the pier every morning and evening. The view is awesome!! Went on the sunset cruise and saw horses and dolphins. The owner's are very helpful and nice people. We definitely stay there again!!

Nice simple hotel right on the water in low traffic area of the island. Small but clean space with box AC, stove and simple bathroom. Views were very nice, right outside the door. Nice seating areas on the pier to sit and relax with a cocktail. Took the sunset tour, it was great. We saw the wild horses and got some spectacular sunsets. Only issue was the internet, it simple does not work at all. Its not spotty, it does not work even at 2 AM. Other than that it was a nice place not to far from the bridge and you can stay off the main road to leave/return.
