Hotels in Marin County
Opened in 2008, with a prime location half a mile north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Cavallo Point blends old and new to great effect.
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.
The collection of meticulously decorated cabins scattered along a wooded hillside are so peaceful they have an almost narcotic effect.
The modern boutique property exists in perfect harmony with San Francisco Bay: from its concrete and timber pilings thrust directly into the water to the century-old sea wall that retains the courtyard and the porthole windows found throughout the hotel.
