Perfect weekend getaway!
It was our first time to San Juan Islands and everything was perfect. We wanted a nice peaceful getaway and that’s what we got at Snug Harbor. It was very peaceful. We felt safe and the place was very clean. Felt like a brand new cabin. We were very impressed how clean it was. We got the 2 bedroom queen twin cabin. Spacious and view was nice. Everything was great. I love how the cabins are spaced out so it was good for social distancing. Gabby at the front desk answered all my questions to ease my nerves on traveling and booking the cabin due to COVID and she was very nice and accommodating. We will definitely be back.View Story

3 person family getaway
We booked this for a getaway before our son started college. The cabins are well equipped to cook but a 20 min drive to downtown Friday harbor if you want to eat out. You can relax or be adventurous with all the hiking, kayaking, and whale watching options on or near the property.I appreciated all the free offerinings of kayaks, bikes, grills, canoes, paddle boards, crab pots, and games. We were there during a burn ban so no camp fires, so next time. We definitely would give 4.5 stars and just a half star off as we have a preference for firmer mattresses and ours was a bit soft to get a great night sleep. The manager was very accommodating with our concerns and stated the mattresses will be replaced in the next few months. The coffee shop is a nice amenity and the property was spotless and well maintained. Will definitely be back.View Story

Get up early to watch the sunrise!
Just experienced 'glamping' at Snug Harbor Resort! The cabins are strategically placed amongst trees and shrubs for maximum privacy along a sloping hill that overlooks a calm harbour. The cabins smell woody (in a good way) and come equipped with basic cooking necessities, gas fireplace, and fully stocked toiletries. The one bedroom suite only has a queen sized bed and lacks a t.v. but it was certainly dark at night! It was really quiet and peaceful until the weekend arrived along with families and young adults. For this reason, I recommend visiting mid-week if you are looking for rest, relaxation, serenity, and/or romance! Communal fire-pits and lawn games in addition to complimentary paddling and kayaks are available. The cabins on the lower, grassy level have nice lounge chairs in front of the units. I wish these had been available in front of our mid-level unit. All in all, I recommend this resort.View Story

Perfect Family Getaway!
Great cabins with great access to all that is good about the island. The bay is a wonderful (safe) place for families to explore (kayak, canoe, paddleboard, and crabbing). Lawn games and fire pits are a great addition for evening calm. Property is clean and quiet. Crystal Seas trips from the dock are an added bonus!View Story

Wanted a waterfront/water view cabin experience with the opportunity to kayak, paddle board and hike. Grilling was also important. Loved Snug Harbor and will be back with family next time. Recommend bringing a vehicle so you can drive around the island and enjoy a number of great hikes. 5 star experience.View Story

Our experience was Incredible
We spent 3 nights celebrating my partner's birthday and our experience was incredible. We went kayaking one day thru the office and it was so nice with smooth waters, and not competing with other motorized watercraft. The next day, we went whale watching thru Maya's Wale Watching right from the dock out front -- so commuting and parking in either Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor. The 3rd day, we travelled around the island exploring old haunts that we had been at when we had a boat. This would have been a wonderful place to be at and have our own boat to explore also. This is my 2nd stay here and I will be back next year also. Because of the Covid-19 threat, we barbequed 2 meals here and only ate out 2 times. The kitchen facilities meat our needs. Very quiet, relaxing time!!!View Story

1 Year Anniversary Celebration
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Snug Harbor. It's in a gorgeous location, the property is very well kept, the cabins are fabulous, and the staff is extremely friendly/accommodating. We also loved the complimentary access to many recreational activities such as lawn games, kayaks, and paddle boards! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. It was definitely a special place to spend our anniversary, and one we will never forget!View Story

Waterfront Cabin 6
We arrived at Snug Harbor later than planned due to ferry issues. Instructions were provided for after hour check-in. Snug Harbor is in a great location in Mitchell Bay, very secluded and quiet. Our one bedroom waterfront cabin # 6, had a full kitchen, living room and a queen bed in the bedroom. Directly in front of the cabin on the grassy area is a picnic table and closer to the lobby area is a fit pit. We enjoyed the outdoors until the stars came out at night, which was really after 10p. It was nice to be able to cook in the cabin and then eat the meals at the picnic table. During low tide, you can walk along the beach. We signed up for the kayaking trip with Crystal Seas that leaves directly from the dock at the resort. It was a real treat!View Story

Best place to stay in Friday Harbor
The property is located on the bay and small enough that we felt like we were the only ones in the area. Great water activities are included in the pricing. Gabby at the front desk is fabulous. Her recommendations for food and things to do were perfect. She was always ready to assist with a smile. We checked in late and they called us and sent all the check in information by mail so we did not even have to stop by the office. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained.View Story

Beautiful cabins, excellent customer services, amazing views!! Have some cash if you are planning to take a taxi to Friday harbor as they are cash only, we kayak around the marina and saw a seal it was so close! Thank you for an amazing experience!View Story

This is our third year coming here for a birthday treat. We stayed 4 wonderful days. The sight is beautiful, right on the water with lovely grounds. The cabins are warm, light, and have ac very well stocked kitchen. That was important with limited restaurant service on the Island due to the virus. There are good groceries on the way from the ferry if you want to eat in. There is a BBQ on the deck, a picnic table plus a great kitchen table. Excellent precautions are being taken and we felt very safe. The office staff is very responsive to your needs and requests. We always go to Westcott oyster farm for oysters and clams. A special island treat.View Story

Glamping in nature
Right on the puget sound, the most amazing cabins with fire pits and free paddle boarding and kayaking. I had an amazing two day trip, experiencing the town of Friday Harbor, and the lovely view in the morning and the crystal clear lake that connects into puget sound! The cabins themselves were incredibly nice and luxurious. Great time!View Story

We spent 2 nights at Snug Harbour in June 2020. The setting is serene and beautiful. The lodging was at 50% occupancy due to Covid. They did a great job with managing through this time. The cabins were perfect to provide isolation from others , yet with great water front views. We had the 2 bedroom cabin which was well furnished with a kitchen.View Story

Snug Harbor Resort
We came here to relax and that is exactly what we did! Snug Harbor is beautiful, relaxing, charming, clean, and peaceful. The cabins are clean and comfortable with nice pots and pans and a grill on the deck. The furniture is comfortable. I love this place and I will go back again and again! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to go there and relax. If we wanted to do more activities during our stay we could have rented a kayak, used the workout studio, hiked, shopped in town and many more activities. Love this place!View Story

Perfect quick getaway
Great customer service and quiet, clean accommodations for family with two teens. We stayed in unit 10, Waterfront Cabin which well suited our needs. Kitchen was ideal for prepping meals to save on restaurant costs. Queen bed very cozy though pullout not so much for sleeping (better suited for kids). Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family looking for a peaceful getaway.View Story

Our favorite resort on San Juan Island
Friendly staff. Fun activities in the summer. Calming scenery. The cabins are really well maintained. It's our new family getaway from the city. Big thanks to all the staff for providing such a great experience. The first time we came I called ahead so that a surprise birthday bouquet of flowers could be left in the cabin. The second time we came Jamie was super helpful with setting up the crab pots. We'll definitely be coming back!View Story
