The view of the Golden Gate Bridge, and the lights of San Francisco were post-card perfect. In this pastoral setting you are stepping back in time a hundred years, the architecture, and lush trees and lawns were as peaceful and soothing as they were authentic. Yet we had every modern amenity, and from the Concierge, to the Front Desk, to the four star restaurant, it was top notch, first class service all the way. If you are looking for a luxurious, relaxing, roomy, and peaceful vacation this is the place. At night we looked out at beautiful water, GG Bridge and city views, cozily enjoying the crackling warmth from our in-room fireplace, listening to the mournful calls of coyotes in the adjacent national forest, and distant fog-horns on the bay. San Franciso, the Wharf, Muir Woods, and Sausalito are all just minutes away. We spent 9 full days here, a bit long for any hotel, but the rooms were so roomy, and there was so much to do, that we honestly could have stayed another week. This would be the perfect place for a wedding, anniversary, or other occasion, and our kids, ages 8 and 13, loved it too. They could run on the lawns, explore the nearby woods, walk to the pier, or roam about the fort. An absolutely lovely experience.
