Snug Harbor Resort is a nice quiet resort with upscale cabins. Kitchen area is fully stocked with stove, fridge, utensils, plates, cutlery, etc. Each cabin has its own BBQ. Firepits are available on a good evening. View is amazing looking out at the marina with houses across the water. The location is handy to the west side of San Juan...

I hope you made the hike up to Young Hill (one of the closest to the resort). While a short, low impact hike, it's low summit offers amazing views of the nearby islands and into Canada. Thank you for choosing Snug Harbor Resort and we look forward to having you back with us in the future.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Snug Harbor Resort has thought of your every need. The owner and staff are first class. All kinds of activities are available from just enjoying the scenery to active water sports.

Wow, we are thankful we rank so high in your travel experience. We work very hard to deliver an amazing visit. Our goal is that people will physically say, Wow, at some point during their stay with us.

We recently revisited the Seattle area and spent 5 nights up in the San Juan Islands. We took a car ferry over to Friday Harbor and drove to the other side of the island for some peace and quiet. Snug Harbor was just what we were looking for and only 15 minutes away from the main town of Friday Harbor....

October is a great time to visit Snug Harbor. The staff was great. We received a warm greeting from the staff when we arrived. The coffee was excellent at the coffee bar. The whole facility is new and beautiful. Snug Harbor is a great place for a business retreat.

The cabin was nice, everything we needed. Bed was comfortable, kitchen was great to reheat various delights from town. Wifi on this side of the island is pretty slow, you can't stream so if you want to watch movies, break out your DVD collection or borrow one from the office/store. We were here in the off season so we didn't...

Yes, our wifi is unfortunately slow. We have two incoming lines to try to offer the best possible speeds which are frustratingly slow. The good news is the island is currently installing fiber optics and we hope they will get to our neighborhood before to much time passes. Then we will have amazing wifi to offer our guests.

Our family had a 1 bedroom, waterfront cabin. We loved it and will be back again. Comfortable! Kitchen works, but very basic. Store okay (better than nothing). Bring your own food and foil/plastic wrap/sandwich bags. Beds good, fans great, towels lovely. View is unbeatable. Very family friendly!

I can't say enough good things about Snug Harbor. It's a collection of new log cabins, which are anything but rustic. They are nicely appointed, clean, modern, comfortable. My husband and I stayed in a one-bedroom, with a nice sized bathroom and a wonderful sitting room/dining area/kitchen for three nights. The marina that is right outside your door is calm...

We used to call the resort, prior to our redevelopment, rustic. It was the nicest word we could think of for something a "bit worn and tired". We definetely no longer refer to ourselves as rustic.

This is a magical retreat just hours away from Seattle that includes a beautiful ferry ride on a popular Orca watching route.

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
