“Beautiful, relaxing, nature-filled, fun family vacation!”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I am an older woman with some disabilities with two sons in their 20's. We had an excellent week-long vacation at Snug Harbor! When we arrived on Sunday evening, John greeted us saying "Welcome to paradise!" We discovered he was absolutely accurate.

Since I made reservations with only a couple of weeks' notice, we had to move half-way through the week from one vintage cottage to another. Our first stay was in Cottage #5. It is just a few yards up and away from the water. There is an absolutely beautiful view from the four large windows in the bedroom that has a sitting area, large bed, and large TV. You can see the lighthouse, fishing boats, and many different types of birds. There is another room with twin beds and dining table. There is a tiny bathroom with shower stall and a small kitchen off it. It appears to have fairly new carpeting and is freshly painted.

Mid-week we moved to Cottage #9. It is smaller but has a new marble countertop and sink in the kitchen area. The bathroom is bigger than Cottage #5's and is adequate with a shower stall. From the two large windows, you can look out onto the docks, boats, and water. There is parking right in front of the cottage. The cottage is wood-paneled and appears to have fairly new carpeting and flooring.

The best part of Snug Harbor is its location almost directly across from the lighthouse in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Snug Harbor has its own marina with rental of boats, kayaks, and canoes. (We rented a boat for a day and kayaks another day. John taught my sons to crab off the dock. My sons had a week's catch of six small sand sharks, a couple of croakers, an eel, and about 15 crabs!)

If you tire of boating, fishing, and resting, you can be at the beautiful sand beach and hiking and biking trails in the Refuge in 5-10 minutes by car. The shops and restaurants are just minutes away.

Staying here is somewhere between staying in a motel and renting a house. The linens were provided, and we got clean towels once when we needed them. I took paper towels, dishwashing liquid, scouring powder, and liquid hand soap for the bathroom and kitchen with us. There is a toaster and coffee maker, but no iron or hair dryer. The next time we go, I'll bring a wooden clothes-drying rack for towels, etc.

John and his staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Hopefully, we will be back to visit!

“Cook outs, boating, and great fishing, the all in one place.”

Make sure you talk to Captain John about where the best fishing spots are. He has all the equipment needed to go clamming and fishing. If your lucky he will cook them up right at the tikki hut for a wonderfull outdoor meal. When we were there...have to go back soon, we went next door and bought fresh seafood. The crabbing off of the docks is also a fun time. We really enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to go back. Great for kids to learn how to fish!

“We return every year and love it every time!”
Reviewed 21 May 2012 for a stay in August 2011

These are great little,spotless cabanas. They are modest in size, but they couldn't be in a better location. The owners always make us feel like family returning. We can sit on one of the docks or lounge in the chairs and watch the sunrise or the boats. It is convenient to all things in Chincoteague, yet you feel like you are off the tourist trail. If you are looking for a fourstar resort with all the amenities, this is not your spot. If you are looking for a reasonably-priced place with four-star surroundings, this is it! We always buy some local seafood from one of the roadside stands nearby and cook it up in our cabin's kitchen and then play cards. It is so fun. Thanks, Snug Harbour for always being there for us!"

“A Beautiful and Relaxing Resort”

My husband, Chuck and I would like to recommend Snug Harbor Marina Resort to everyone looking for a relaxing, beautiful and fun place to stay on your vacation. The resort has tiki bars and lounging areas along with boat rentals and other rental activities. The resort overlooks the bay, which was where we spent alot of our time watching the wild horses right from the deck. The views are absolutely beautiful from the resort. You can see the old historic lighthouse across the bay. It was facinating to see that the lighthouse still was in operation. Chuck fished from the piers and I had a great time crabbing there as well. I caught dozens right there for dinner. It was fun watching all the boaters and skiers and not to mention socializing with other guest. The resort had so much to offer and even though we were 10 minutes from the beach, we spent most of our time at the resort. The cottages are adorable,very comfortable and fully furnished. Chuck wanted to rent a boat that the resort offers, but I was just fine on dry land. We had a great time staying there and the hospitality is just awesome. The owners were alot of fun and very helpful. I had alot of fun with the "Duck" family that live on the resort. I wanted to bring them home with me but they chose to stay. Chuck and I decided, we didn't have to stay anywhere else on our vacations that Snug Harbor Marina Resort has everything we need. We can't wait to go back. The rates are very reasonable and being 10 minutes away from the beach, you just can't beat it. It was definitely the right choice for us. Thank you very much for making our vacation a great one John and Basia. See you next summer if not sooner.
