Lovely location, a bit out of town, but quiet and beautiful. We stayed in cabin 16. The couch and bed were comfortable. The only issue we had that the outdoor lighting didn't work, made getting around in the dark dangerous, good thing for phones with a flashlight feature. Wish the cafe would be open in the afternoon, would be nice...

We have never stayed on San Juan before and wasn't sure if staying in the town of Friday Harbor would be better than on the other side of the Island. We were very happy with our decision as soon as we stepped inside the cabin. It was a good size for our family, clean, and nicely stocked with plates, cups,...

Found this property while scanning various websites for places to stay on the island. Am not a particular fan of B&B's, so was looking for something that had some of the feel, but more privacy. This place was it! The cabins look and feel brand new. Very comfortable features and a very peaceful setting. The cabins had enough space to...

My wife and I just spent a fantastic weekend here and we will be returning as soon as time allows. We arrived late Friday evening to find our cabin on the water all ready to go and a little fire going in the fire place. These little cabins are about as neat as it gets , from the rustic all...

We certainly appreciate you detailed review and sharing with future guests. Our staff person you were referring to is Mae. She is wonderful and yes, she does make a delicious cup of coffee. We proudly serve Fidalgo Bay Coffee which is roasted outside of Anacortes, Washington where you boarded the ferry to come to the San Juan's. When we do...

Escaped to the island after Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. Cabin is quaint and cozy with all the necessary amenities. View was amazing. We brought our own food as there is no restaurant, but the small kitchen was adequate for quick dinners. Friendly staff and easy check-in. Highly recommended!

Awh these cabins are so adorable and they were super clean and cozy. The room was very snug, the bathroom was clean with overflow of toiletries, the sink was big and perfect for make-up. The kitchen has complete sets of kitchen items. We were able to make breakfast consisting of pancakes, sausage, bagel, and eggs. The living room was very...

Some hotels allow you to buy pillows, robes, art, etc., that you enjoy during a stay. Maybe we should have an option to take a cabin home? We have had numerous inquiries about the plans for our little cabins. We would be happy to share them with you. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are...

Could not have asked for a more relaxing weekend and we are already thinking about our next trip. The new cabins are simply amazing, no detail overlooked. Wonderful views can be had from every cabin. Had one of the two bedroom cabins and it was ample space for four people. Beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. The kitchen has...

Thank you for the review and for noticing the little things. We worked really hard on the little things because we believe they add up to one big wonderful guest experience.

I and my boy friend visited San Juan during rainy season, so not so many outdoor activities, we were just looking for some where for relaxing.

Entering the cabin was a memorable moment. It was a perfect retreat to relax, enjoy and never want to leave. The marina and water views were outstanding. The cabin is clean, new, spacious and the gas fireplace made for a perfect cabin in the woods experience. Snug Harbor exceeded our expectations.

Thank you for the review. One of our primary goals when designing the cabins was to have a "wow" effect when our guests walk through the door. Thank you for letting us know we were successful.

We recently stayed for one night at this resort and were very impressed. We had a two bedroom cabin overlooking the harbor. The cabin was very well appointed and the furnishings were lovely.

Our two favorite things to hear from guests are, "We don't want to leave" and "We wish we could stay longer". We feel we have accomplished our goal when guests are reluctant to depart from our property and can't wait to come back. Thank you for your review.

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
