Waterfront and Water View Rental Cottages at Snug Harbor
(our Rental Cabins we call Snuggle Inns)
Want Waterfront?    Snug Harbor offers nice waterfront rental cottages of various sizes.  These adorable Cape Cod style units make ideal vacation homes for large family reunions or small intimate get-aways in a historic and peaceful setting on Steamboat Slough in the amazing California Delta Region.  WIFI is available here, and most cottages have dock space available for rent in front or very nearby.  Pets can be accomodated in Snuggle Inns 5,8,12,14,15,16,17 so please only reserve one of those cottages and make sure to note when making the reservation that you plan to bring a pet.  If you want a Sacramento Delta waterfront vacation home setting, we're here!   Rental Cost is based on what you plan to rent, and the number of persons coming onsite.  Security deposit required to be paid in advance of check-in (if paid by check), or when making the reservation (if paid by credit card).  We do not offer "day use" at this facility.  For more general information about the resort, you might want to check out the Videos page, or the individual cottage videos linked below:

Why do we call our vacation cottages "Snuggle Inns"?

     In 1862 California explorer and author James M. Hutchings published a book describing the Scenes of Wonder and Curiosity in California.  He was on a paddlewheeler steambship headed for Sacramento when he passed through Steamboat Slough;  he describes the "snug little cabins" along the peaceful banks of Steamboat Slough.  The little cabins of times past have been replaced by more modern versions, but the ambiance of shady trees, wild vines and serene setting on Steamboat Slough described by Mr. Hutchings remains.  Modern conveniences like WIFI, docks, gas, and fax service add 21st Century comfort without diminishing 19th Century charm.  For more on this historic region of the Delta, you can go to the http://www.steamboatslough.com website by us or the other pages, like http://www.snugharbor.net/historic_steamboat_slough.htm 
We also added a video showing historic navigation charts from the 1850's to 1900, with narration by Tyler (our son) quoting Commander Ringgold of the US Navy as he describes charting and navigation on the Sacramento River and Steamboat Slough in 1850.  Historical records indicate it was Commander Ringgold himself who called this branch of the Sacramento River "Steamboat Slough".
