East Brother Island

East Brother Light Station

117 Park Place
East Brother, CA, 94801, United States
TEL: (510) 233-2385

On this one-acre islet, this restored Victorian lighthouse that once guided ships from the San Pablo Strait to the San Francisco stockyards, has been transformed into an all-inclusive five-room inn—it’s the only place to stay on the island. After arriving via a 10-minute motorboat ride from Point San Pablo, guests are welcomed with a flute of Domaine Chandon champagne. Climb to the third-story platform, which looks out over Mount Tamalpais State Park. In the morning, innkeepers Ed and Anne Witts (both experts on harbor lore) serve a hearty breakfast: pain au chocolat, herbed eggs, and fresh-roasted coffee.

Insider Tip:

Ask for either the West Brother room (with a four-poster bed and views of Marin County) or Two Sisters, for a private fireplace.
