Our favourite place on East Coast

  • 5 of 5

We travel a lot and Snug Harbor became our favourite place on East Coast. We try to come every fall to simply relax. When we are there we feel like nothing else exists... it is very peaceful and relaxing, away from the craziness of this world. It is one of the very few places where we can truly relax. We look forward to this visit every year and we got some of our close friends hooked on Snug Harbor too :) They ended up staying there even more often than we do :) Cottages are verycozy and clean, they have all we need including kitchens, the views are outstanding and the hosts are very friendly, helpful and they do a great job with running this mini resort. Kayaks, boats, SUPs are available to rent right on sight which is very convinient too. We just made our fall reservation and can't wait to come back!

"I'm in Heaven at Snug Harbor Marina Resort"

  • 5 of 5

Loved Snug Harbor Marina Resort. So peaceful and the views are awesome! The owners, John and Basia are so kind and caring and they make sure you have everything you need to make your stay complete. The cottages are adorable with everything you need for a comfortable stay. They are spotless and very roomy. There is so much to do right at the resort that we never made it over to the beach. The fishing and crabbing was great and we had so much fun making new friends while sitting at the tiki bar on the dock. The boat tours were fantastic and we got to see beautiful wildlife and views. Capt. John is very knowledgeable about the history of the island and makes the trip worth taking. You can enjoy kayak tours to see the wildlife and most of the time, you can get very close to the ponies. Everything at Snug Harbor is just awesome. We love it and will always make that our vacation spot every year. Thank you John and Basia for always making our stay worth the ride.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay 3 1/2 day stay at Snug Harbor. We have three children 9, 7 and 3 years old. They had a great time fishing at the dock with daddy just steps away from our back door. Everything was clean and the view was breath taking.

We found this town very friendly. We ride the Pony express, had a boat tour with captain John, enjoyed one day at the beach, play golf, ate the most delicious meals and deserts we ever had, visit the light house, had a horse trail ride and visited the Delmarva discovery center (the best for kids) just 20 min. away in Pocomoke City.

Short stay but well enjoyed. Basia and John were there to answer any question we had. We even had the luck to enjoy one night with live music just a mile away from Snug Harbor. We will definitely be back.

Basia and John, It would be nice if the cottages have at least one closet or dresser, We had to organize all our belongings on the floor on top of some blankets. Also it would be very helpful to have better WiFi access. We did no have any signal in our cottage and having to check on emails or search for local stores or restaurants was kind of challenging. Those are the only things we suggest too improve. Thank you for a great weekend!

Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Nice location, although a bit close to the road if you have kids or pets. Grounds and equipment are well taken care of. We were upgraded from a 1BR to a 2BR immediately, although this was in the middle of the week off season and the resort was pretty quiet. Still, it was a nice surprise. Staff is very friendly and helpful. While the cottages are very cute, clean, and comfortable keep in mind there are no closets, dressers, or storage to speak of, and little counter space. Kitchens had decent wares but need more utensils for larger groups. I imagine if you as the staff would provide it. Crabbing off of the dock was fun but no one we talked to caught fish. My husband rented a skiff to fish in the waters just off of the resort (as he was advised by them to do) and only caught 2 flounder - not keepers - for 6 hours of fishing. The flies at the resort weren't bad but If you plan to go anywhere near Assateague Beach be prepared for LOTS of biting flies. The restaurants in the area are all ok but we did not find anything exceptional, even at one of the best (and highest priced) restaurants in the area. Also, if you plan to rent a boat or do any fishing bring your own equipment and check rental rates before you arrive as the resort charges a pretty penny for these things, like $25 for a $9 minnow bucket. Their Eco tour was not worth $50 PP.

Piece of Heaven on the Eastern Shores

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Snug Harbor was amazing. The first night we stayed in a One Bedroom, and the second night our two kids joined us so we moved to a Two Bedroom. It was a very easy transition for the second night. The Cottages were both wonderful, spacious and very very clean. The view was incredible! Sitting on the dock at night was so peaceful and coffee outside in the morning was a great way to start the day. This is a little peace of heaven tucked away on the back of Chincoteague that I would highly recommend. Another highlight was the sunset boat tour. The pontoon was roomy and comfortable and the captain was full of great info about the islands. We even had a pod of dolphins start to swim and jump in the water next our boat at one point! WOW!

My one and only suggestion is that if you are under 5'3 tall you bring a mirror along - the bathroom mirror was definitely hung by a much taller person.

Thank you Basia and team for sharing your cottages and your island with us!
