This area used to be a military base, so my expectations were not too high going into the weekend. Moreover, I had just been to an adjacent town, Tiburon for one-wekend, the previous month, so I thought I didn't think there was much to do in this area. I was surprisingly amazed by the open space and amount activities one can enjoy on-site.
Both the room and bathroom were very spacious. The room had avery small living space with a t.v. and two reading chairs detached from the sleeping area . A large patio surrounded the three-room building, and had inviting chairs available for reading or simply enjoying the incredible views.
Since we were here for a day, we did not get to take advantage of the cooking demonstrations, spa, nature hike or yoga class; however we did get in a short hike from the hotel to a beach in the Marin Headlands. One can easily walk or bike the Golden Gate in addition to the Headland trails. Since it was an ideal sunny, cloudless day - rare in SF/Saucalito - we were able to enjoy incredible views every step we took. It made for an extra worthwhile experience.
I encourage you to take advantage of the on-site restaurant. The chef cooks only with fresh, seasonal ingredients. I was able to dine in the main dining room. (I would have eaten outside on the porch, but it was full.) While the food was a bit pricey, it was superb and memorably presented.
Finally, because my partner had been there for work with an environmental non-profit, we recevied an exclusive rate that truly could not be beat. This was value at its best. I will undoubtedly be back again, but next time with my bike and for a full weekend to enjoy Cavallo to its fullest!
For dog owners, this place is a special treat. I'm guessing this is a dog-friendly hotel because I saw a few people there accompanied by leashed dogs.
