Cavallo Point invited our Chic Metropolitan Travel Editor to do a 2 day stay and check it out in person. Cavallo Point is a special place. It’s set in historic Fort Baker, a 350-arce national park in the town of Sausalito, just below the Golden Gate Bridge outside of San Francisco.



The views at Cavallo Point will leave you speechless. Relaxed and peaceful.

The lodge has 17 colonial renovated buildings that have red roofs and covered porches. Spread throughout the grounds are a slew of Adirondack chairs and pine, eucalyptus and cypress trees which make the whole place smell terrific.

The buildings are arranged in a horseshoe shape around a huge green field with a flagpole in the center. Most of the historic buildings are restored officers’ quarters, which are the size of houses. These have sixty-eight rooms in total, with an additional 74 contemporary rooms in several tasteful modern structures above the main buildings on a hillside. All are very private and serene.

Travel Editor , or not, this will be added to anyones list of favorite Hotels due to the specular Views. The Golden Gate bridge is essentially in your backyard. I don’t care how much stress you have in your life or what is going on, once you set foot on the grounds of Cavallo Point, you immediately RELAX. They have two different types of rooms – Historic and contemporary.

I had the privileged opportunity to stay in the contemporary side of the resort. It is unfair to match my room at Cavallo Point against others. Right outside my window was the historic and beautiful Golden Gate Bridge.

Check out my amazing view…

I didn’t even want to watch tv. One of my favorite things to do was drink some coffee out on the deck and look at the magnificent bridge. (Not all rooms have views of the Golden Gate Bridge. You have to request it). Each room has plenty of space, heated floors,  and an amazing bed with a deep soaking tub. You will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud, especially after a bath in the deep tub. Organic locally sourced lotions and bath gel, as well as organic juice snacks, and local Napa wine come as a complementary gift in each room.


Now lets speak about the  Food and Wine!

The wine list has every amazing wine from Napa and then some. Murray Circle Restaurant. It you want one of the best dates you can do in the San Francisco Bay Area, dining at Murray Circle Restaurant is one of them. Luckily the food and wine match the amazing view.  You don’t have to drive all the way to Napa now to get Napa best wine.

Cavalo Point stepped it up and got the one of the best wine lists in the U.S. The restaurant has over 2,000 bottle options and 50 wines by the glass. Their wine cellar is one of California’s deepest and most divers claims it showcases local treasures combined with the best vintages of Europe’s top estates.



Now lets speak about Cavallo Spa. It has been crowed #5 spa in the U.S. It has over 11,000 square feet.

All guest have access to the Healing Arts Center & Spa, which includes a gym, warm basking pool, steam room and a tea bar that serves health snacks and smoothies. There are 11 treatment rooms and a wide variety of treatments. I had their signature one-hour massage which blends several techniques and almost made me fall asleep. This hidden gem is waiting for you to come relax.

Chic Editors Pick for BEST OF BEST – The resort has a contract with Lexus and have drivers to escort you to your room in many different Lexus SUVs. It can be chilly in San Francisco bay so getting drivento your room in a Lexus is a VIP service unlike most luxury resorts offer for guests.
