Imagine waking up on your vacation to dramatic views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge from the floor-to-ceiling windows in your guest room. When you stay at Cavallo Point Lodge, a LEED gold certified facility located within San Francisco's Golden Gate National Parks, you can enjoy those views, along with numerous amenities from an on-site healing spa facility to sightseeing at historic landmarks. You can even bring along your dog to enjoy your vacation alongside you, thanks to the Lodge's dog-friendly Eco Luxe Pups Program.
Cavallo Point Lodge may have one of the more unique locations of all the hotels in the San Francisco area. Situated on the former Fort Baker military base, it can boast that it is both a site of historical importance listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and a sustainable lodging option that has been recognized by the country's leading environmental organizations, including the US Green Building Council and the Green Seal for Environmental Standards. Guests who are interested in the history of the area can choose to stay in one of the Lodge's sixty-eight historic rooms and suites, located within the military base's former officer's quarters. This lodging option features tin ceilings, cozy fireplaces, and homey front porches where you might sit to enjoy the expansive views. Nearby attractions for history buffs include historic forts, Alcatraz, and sites of importance located within a quick five mile drive to San Francisco.
A second option for guests who are looking for eco-luxury are the newly built sustainable rooms at Cavallo Point Lodge. Facilities separate to the historically charming officer's quarters are available to those with more contemporary tastes. The seventy-four newly constructed rooms and suites at Cavallo Point feature a hillside setting, floor-to-ceiling views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and sustainable design from Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects. Green features of the new construction are extensive and include radiant floor heating that is controlled for maximum efficiency, solar power, and energy efficient fixtures and appliances. Both the contemporary and historic rooms and suites offer all modern conveniences, including wi-fi and flat screen TVs.
If you prefer to travel with your pet, Cavallo Point Lodge is happy to accommodate both you and your furry companions. Through their Eco Luxe Pups Program, the Lodge allows guests to bring up to two pets to stay in select first floor rooms. You don't even need to worry about bringing all the equipment your dog will need, since Cavallo Point offers your pup a welcome bag, luxury pet bedding, food and bowls, and even a special super absorbent doggie towel for drying off your wet pup. All pet products offered by Cavallo Point are local to the Marin County area. While you are enjoying the beautiful scenery surrounding Cavallo Point, your dog can romp and play alongside you. Pets can be walked on a leash within the National Recreational Area, or be allowed to roam free on Rodeo Beach or at the Remington Dog Park. Your dog may enjoy his or her vacation just as much as you do!
In addition to the luxury facilities available to guests at Cavallo Point, the Lodge also offers all you will need to enjoy your vacation in luxury style. Dining options range from the Murray Circle restaurant, which offers locally sourced ingredients from nearby farmers and fishermen, to the stylish Farley Bar, where guests can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and a casual menu. Cavallo Point even offers guests the unique opportunity to participate in their on-site cooking school. This is one of the few cooking schools located within a hotel. Participants learn to use local and seasonal ingredients from well-known chefs. Once your appetite is taken care of, you may be interested in receiving a specialty treatment at the 11,000-square-foot Healing Arts Center & Spa, where services range from traditional facials and massages to unique features such as hypnotherapy, a heated meditation pool, or a hot drink at the Tea Bar.
For a true San Francisco treat, a stay at the Cavallo Point Lodge will give you everything you would expect from a luxury lodging destination, plus a host of green and sustainable initiatives. Whether you bring your pet, your family, or your significant other, you will find engaging activities, natural beauty, and local sightseeing to keep you busy. At Cavallo Point Lodge, every need is attended to during your stay so that you can relax and enjoy your up-close view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
