Sula needs a new chef. worst lamb ever, are the crab cakes made there fresh each day? lodge has a great location and nice view. historic room are really nice. but towels are rough and stiff. i wonder if anyone working there has ever taken a shower or bath in one of the rooms and used them. must have been bought because they will last forever.

This is the second time I’ve stayed at Cavallo Point and I’d certainly return. The staff is so friendly & helpful, the accommodations & food are wonderful. The grounds and views are iconically San Francisco. The cooking school and spa, plus access to Muir Woods, SF and the bay make it a perfect place to absorb all the Bay Area has to offer, just outside the hustle & bustle of the city.

I recently held a corporate event at Cavallo Point and our staff and clients couldn't be happier! The setting was perfect for a women's retreat, tucked away with beautiful views, lovely and historic rooms, tasty food and wine, and amazingly helpful staff. They went above and beyond to make our stay special and I would definitely book again.

Cavallo Point is a really special location, and a lovely experience! Things we enjoyed included: - the beautiful room - the free e-bikes! We rode into the Headlands, it was awesome. The big downside is that there are 2 restaurants (with the same kitchen) on the property and they are both pretty awful and terribly overpriced. Would suggest to make a dinner reservation elsewhere (though you would have to drive - into Sausalito or elsewhere), and maybe bring something little for breakfast. It's too bad that the food is not good and very expensive.

This has to be one of the best places we have ever stayed. The lodges are lovely, very clean and spacious. It looks like something out of a film. Location was fantastic with the great views of the bridge. It was about 30 minutes slow walk up to the bridge. Only 10 minutes in an Uber to Sausalito where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Farley restaurant lunch- Food was incredible, very friendly staff. It was a shame we only booked for 2 nights as we could have stayed here for the week.

I just received the best gift I’ve ever gotten. It was a lovely afternoon led my artist Lucinda Eubanks who gave a group of us lessons to create our own watercolor painting. The setting was exquisite at Cavalio Point on the porch in comfortable rockers with the pristine view of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Lucinda gave us a great crash course in techniques that enabled us beginners to actually paint our own paintings. For me it was my first watercolor landscape and through her great eye and experience she was able to teach me valuable tips that helped the piece come together. I’m so happy with it. Whether you give this as a gift or treat yourself, it is a relaxing gentle creative and healing experience in one of the most beautiful areas in the Bay Area. Also you can have lunch beforehand at The restaurant if you want to truly make your experience over the top. Also there were two couples in our group that were really having fun.

We appreciate your recommendation to others, whether as a gift or for personal enjoyment, and it is truly a pleasure to offer such enriching experiences to our guests. We hope to welcome you for another inspirational visit in the months ahead, and we wish you all the best on your continued artistic journey. Until next time!

There is nothing much like Cavallo Point. The grounds and location relative to the SF Bay is calming and beautiful. To see the morning light come up across the lawn area and through the trees is magic. However, with all older places, the room is a bit run down and in need of fresh paint. The windows rattle with fire in strong winds which are inevitable in the Bay Area. We go two worse night's sleep for the most expensive price ever. It's still worth a 4 rating if you stay in the older section, facing the huge lawn, where you watch the Bay and beautiful scenery all around you.

We spent a lovely afternoon at Cavallo Point taking a terrific plein air watercolor workshop with Lucinda Eubanks in July 21. Even though I had no art experience, Lucinda made everyone comfortable immediately. She is warm, personable and encouraging and we all went home with paintings we had done ourselves. Thanks to her workshop, I became obsessed with watercolor and have continued painting ever since. Take a workshop with Lucinda! You will have so much fun! And who knows, she might turn you - like me - into a painter for life!

I cannot say enough good things about Cavallo Point - from the beautiful setting in a modern room with a bridge room, to the fantastic service, to the incredible food and breadth of activities available like free e-bikes, yoga and history tours, it's heaven. Rebecca at the spa was truly incredible in terms of accommodating our requests - we changed our mind about services multiple times and she was incredibly flexible and patient with us. I had the single best massage of my life with Ananda and, beyond that, she took a genuine interest in my wellbeing and sent me some recommendations for ongoing treatments.
