“3 nights at snug”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

What a beautiful place. Low key, relaxing, many things to do at the resort and the surrounding area. There are tour boats and kayak trips that leave the small marina, fire pits, bbqs, crab cooking pots on the sandy fire pit area. Ken the manager was just great, doing everything he could to make our stay great. They have canoes for the guests to use. We actually set crab pots in the bay and caught enough keepers for dinner that night. We will definitely be trying to make snug a yearly trip. Would be an excellent place for multiple families to vacation at.

My husband & I stayed here for our anniversary & had a great time. the staff were great & low-key, which made our stay relaxing. Ken was great about answering all of our questions & giving suggestions of places to go. He even helped us out with preparing our live crab, which by the way, turned out great!! Thanks for your great hospitality.

My wife and I wanted to treat her mother and grandmother to a nice relaxing getaway to the San Juan Islands. Ken, the resort manager, made sure that our stay was worth while. He went above and beyond for us to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The rooms were clean and cozy, the property was well maintained and the atmosphere was peaceful and quiet. Firewood was available for the taking at night to start a campfire next to the boat dock and canoes were available for guests. If you are looking to stay at a relaxing, friendly resort on San Juan Island, then go to Snug Harbor.

My husband and I were traveling to Friday Harbor and found Ken and the staff at Snug Harbor Resort to go above and beyond. They were great and we can't wait to go back next year. We spent two nights camping. The staff was informative on telling us about what to do and where to go. It felt like a local experience in a foreign place.

If you are looking for a resort away from the hustle of Friday Harbor, this is the right place. It has quaint cabins, a small marina, free canoes and fire pits with fire wood that make it a great place to be with friends. Even a dip in the water is possible for the less faint of heart. The lower cabins are one next to the other, so privacy is sometimes an issue.

You need to be aware that there is no daily housekeeping but you are more than welcome to ask for extra towels or other things you might need. It is really provided with a smile!

However, the lower cabins on the water are in dire need of updates and some of the rooms are not big enough for adults to move around or are in need of more light fixtures to be able to see. This is all manageable but what we would recommend is to make this a NON-smoking resort. Since there are many people with allergies and families with children in this resort, it would make sense.

A bit pricey but well-worth a trip.

We had a family reunion here and it was great for the babies, old folks, dogs and everyone in between. It's a true northwest experience!

The room that we stayed in was a great location but did not get daily housekeeping. It's a bit expensive for the price. You need to prepare your own food as well do if you like dining out this isn't the right spot for you.
