“Everything that was promised, perfect for our family”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The other reviews and the owners' description say it all -- it IS right across the water from the lighthouse and the marsh where you can watch the ponies from the beach chairs, the docks, or the tiki huts. John and Basia ARE incredible hosts and useful guides for boating and kayaking. The two-bedroom unit WAS perfect -- a necessity when traveling with our two teens (19 & 15), who had a great time.

Even the less-than-robust wifi (we were in the end cabin) was a plus -- our son had to go outside and sit at the tiki hut if he wanted to use his iPad!

Not cheap, but a great value. Nothing else like it on the island.

Two quibbles to help make things better: even small cheap microwaves in the cabin would be a big help, and some kind of guest laundry (if they had one, we weren't aware) would have been great for our wet muddy clothes after stalking the ponies through the marsh in our kayaks!

“Best Location, Best Value in Chincoteague!”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015
5
people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at Snug Harbor in June and had a delightful time. Here are our five top reasons why it’s the place to stay on Chincoteague!
1. Location, location, location: Snug Harbor is on the east end of the island right on the Assateague Channel. You can sit on the dock or in one of the beach chairs and watch life on the water—wildlife, people fishing or oystering, kayakers, and more. It’s also an short drive to town or out to the beach.
2. Convenience and Cost-saving: The accommodations are cottages with a kitchen and one or two bedrooms. Perfect for families or couples who want to save by making their own breakfast or lunch, and who like more space than a motel room provides.
3. Family fun: Guests are welcome to set crab traps right off the dock, and a number of our neighbors had crabs they caught for dinner while they were there. Snug Harbor also rents kayaks, motorboats, and offer tours.
4. Exploring Assateague from the water: We took a great kayak tour with one of Snug Harbor’s owners. We saw families of ponies from the water and a variety of birds, and also learned a lot about harvesting oysters, mussels, and clams.
5. Snug Harbor’s owner/hosts: Basia and John are welcoming and make you feel like part of their family. They’ve created a Caribbean oasis on Chincoteague, complete with sand, tiki huts, and palm trees. We can’t think of a more congenial place to watch the sunset over the water and have a glass of something cold!

My husband and I needed a few days of R & R and Snug Harbor was perfect! We would recommend this as a great economic vacation. We were surrounded by various wildlife as well as a constant slight breeze which prevented mosquitoes. The view was great and the sunsets magnificent.

Our vacation started out great at checkin-Basia was super friendly and helpful from the start! Her positive "can do" attitude and attention to detail made us realize we were at an awesome place! From Eco Kayak Sunset Tours to recommendations where to spot and photograph the incredible canvas of nature's colors and wildlife-Snug Harbor had it all! Basia and John treated everyone with a friendly, positive attitude. You can't beat the location-directly across from Assateague lighthouse! If you want to have vacation that you and your family will talk about and treasure always-Snug Harbor is your place!

“A Relaxing Waterfront Bay Getaway!”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Casual, comfortable and relaxing at a great waterfront location! If “5-star” pampering and amenities is what you seek then look elsewhere. This is exactly what is needed when intending to spend more time enjoying the outdoors then inside. The cabins fulfill what is needed for this type of getaway, a clean and comfortable place in the evening after a great day of hiking, boating, fishing, biking, etc… Plus nice dock waterfront seating areas with picturesque view for morning coffee or laidback sunset drinks. Our host was friendly and sought to make our stay enjoyable for what we wanted to do. We will be back again!

“Best location on the island.”

We stayed for a few nights with our pet lab. The location is awesome. It gives the feel of a tropical island. Beautiful views of Asseauteague and the bays. So relaxing to sit along the docks having cocktails by the tiki huts. Our unit faced the water which made it nice to sit right out front. To our surprise, the units were well remodeled since our last visit. New appliances, full size oven and refrigerator. Pleasant furnishings.
