Cavallo Point - The Lodge at the Golden Gate

Luxury plays nice with nature at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge.

A guest room at Cavallo Point - The Lodge at the Golden Gate

A former military outpost may at first seem an unlikely candidate for a health- and wellness-minded lodge and spa, but when that outpost occupies land at the foot of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and is surrounded by national park, the concept starts to make more sense. The 142-room property sits on the grounds of Fort Baker, a U.S. Army site that dates back to 1866. Across the bridge from San Francisco and about one mile from Sausalito, the lodge consists of a series of buildings arranged in a campus-like setting replete with trails and postcard-worthy Bay views.

About half of the rooms are located in 13 historic buildings once used as officers’ quarters, while the remaining 74 occupy new-construction, two-story buildings on the property’s coastal hillside. A variety of room types are available, but all accommodations offer upscale amenities such as organic cotton robes, nightly turndown service and flat-screen LCD TVs. The Healing Arts Center & Spa treats guests to the usual array of massage and skin therapies, and also offers health and wellness programs focused on meditation, nutrition and outdoor recreation. Murray Circle restaurant specializes in upscale Northern California flavors, while Farley Bar is more relaxed, serving small plates and cocktails around fireplaces. Unique facilities include the Cavallo Point Cooking School, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum, located next door, is a great place to bring young kids.
