Cavallo Point-The Best Place for the Golden Gate Bridge View
The Golden Gate Bridge view is among the most spectacular and iconic sites in the world! The best place to experience the Golden Gate Bridge view is from the Cavallo Point Lodge, a historic and gorgeous spot at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito, California. In the early 1970’s, the Fort Baker army post was transferred to a national park, and in 2008, the colonial revival buildings were transformed into a hotel and conference center. The Cavallo Point Lodge offers a luxurious vacation with a legendary restaurant, Murray Circle, serving lunch, dinner, and a brunch to die for!
Historic rooms, contemporary rooms, king beds, fireplaces, and views! The entire area is surrounded by stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, and the Marin Headlands. The San Francisco skyline is just across the Bay and the sailboats and barges come under the bridge and pass by the marina at Fort Baker. Hiking trails on the 75,000 acres offer plenty to explore. Or just stay on the premises and enjoy your cozy room and have cocktails on the giant porches.
As luxury hotels go, The Cavallo Point Lodge isn’t outrageously expensive, but definitely in the “spend more because it is a special occasion” category. Pay extra for the contemporary room with a Golden Gate Bridge view. Proceed with caution because thatGolden Gate Bridge view is almost always socked in with fog! So, the extra cost may be for the fog view, and the remote setting with a private balcony. I would still say it was worth it! The bed felt divinely comfortable and overlooks the Bay. There are fireplaces in the room and very high ceilings. Did I mention the robes? I love me a hotel room equipped with big terry cloth robes!
The food is probably the biggest highlight of the experience. The 601 Murray Circle Restaurant is known for its locally sourced specials and atmosphere. I highly recommend the mushroom appetizer, anything with crab, the salmon, and the eggs benedict! The staff are super respectful and friendly.
FYI, many guests had their dogs running around on the field. Apparently, the hotel allows up to two dogs per room for a fee, if you are interested.
Know before you go!
The Cavallo Point Lodge is located just over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area of Fort Point.
