This past September, while working, I had the opportunity to stay at the beautiful Cavallo Point Lodge (right in Sausalito, CA). This hidden gem is the PERFECT San Francisco getaway location if you ask me. Located right below the base of the Golden Gate Bridge offering some of the best views of the bridge out there:
Right at Fort Baker, just a few feet from the Cavallo Point Lodge.
But the lodge is pretty spectacular itself offering a bit of historic history with scenic views all around you.
The Historic Guest Lodges at Cavallo Point that sit right on Fort Baker. These historic buildings – formerly officers’ residences – are located on expansive green space encircling the parade ground with hillside or San Francisco skyline views with the city and Golden Gate Bridge directly in front of you:
Inside the lodges, offering 1 or 2 bedroom offerings, is a nice luxury getaway. Comfortable beds, with a large size bathroom that include both a shower and bathtub for you to choose from. Shampoo and Conditioners are dispensed right inside the shower.
