California’s eco-conscious Cavallo Point is a former army base that has been re-purposed into one of our favorite luxury properties on the west coast. Nestled at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, views are stunning and worth waking up early for. Just fifteen minutes outside of San Francisco, Cavallo Point sits along some 75,000 acres of breathtaking wilderness in Golden Gate National Park. Combining the best of urban life and the outdoors, the luxury west coast property has been named one of the “Top 10 New American Landmarks” by Travel + Leisure and has received LEED Gold Certification for its environmentally sustainable design and construction. The hotel offers two types of lodging—historic, and contemporary—the historic accommodations restored officer’s residencies of what was once US Army post Fort Barker, and the contemporary lodging perched above with modern style, green architecture, and sweeping panoramas of Golden Gate Bridge.
For dinner desires, Murray Circle Restaurant is located on the property and considered one of the Bay Area’s top culinary destinations; Cavallo Point also features a world-class cooking school where guests can partake in one of the ever-changing course offerings during their stay. Wine tasting, beach combing, sailing, biking, and ballooning are other popular activities and the lodge offers complimentary morning yoga classes and regular guided hikes. Guests can relax at the serene Healing Arts Center & Spa to enjoy a massage and some rejuvenation at the Tea Bar; those interested in healthy living can also schedule an appointment with integrative medical expert Bradly Jacobs MD, who can create individually tailored therapeutic plans for everything from chronic health issues to healthy aging. We invite you to enjoy San Francisco’s urban life as well as the city love of the outdoors from Cavallo Point, the perfect place to explore.
