Named after the wild horses that once roamed the area, Cavallo Point Lodge is a luxury property with stunning views of San Francisco’s majestic Golden Gate Bridge. It’s located in the Fort Baker area in one of the world’s largest urban parks, formerly an army post directly north of the bridge that’s now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The lodge is in an ideal location for anyone looking to visit San Francisco, discover this vibrant city’s many attractions and learn about its long, fascinating history.

For accommodation, there’s a superb choice of traditional or contemporary rooms and suites. The handsomely furnished historic suites, which have been lovingly preserved and restored over the years, are dotted across several different buildings which once functioned as residences for army officers. Perched on the hillside amid lovely, green surroundings, many of these rooms/suites offer views of the renowned bridge and city skyline. Alternatively, contemporary rooms and suites are offered in buildings designed with all the latest environmentally-friendly principles in mind. Despite their very sleek, modern feel, these rooms have been cleverly designed to blend right in with the lodge’s historical feel.

There are plenty of on-site amenities to make use of. The Murray Circle Restaurant specialises in Northern Californian cuisine and is open daily for three meals; in fact, it’s well known as one of the top fine dining restaurants in the Bay Area. There’s also Farley Bar which serves lighter meals and an assortment of classy drinks. Those after some cookery tips can take part in lessons offered by the lodge’s very own, well-equipped cooking school which offers a varied line-up of classes and programs for people of all experience levels. There’s also the Healing Arts Center & Spa, which offers not only a good selection of spa treatments, but also enrichment workshops, a well-stocked tea bar and relaxed hikes.

Children are welcome and the lodge’s parade ground lawn is a great place for families to enjoy some laid-back time together, plus there’s loads to do in the wider locality. The waterfront area and nearby Muir Forest are well worth exploring, as is the Bay Area Discovery Museum, which has been recognised as a top museum for children. There’s also Slide Ranch, which is home to friendly farm animals, and the Exploratorium, a fascinating collection of exhibits and displays. Both the lodge and the Fort Baker area have a very family friendly atmosphere. Visits to San Francisco proper are also very popular, and transportation to and from the city can be arranged.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
