“Can't Wait To Go Back”
Reviewed June 15, 2009

Just this past weekend, I stayed here along with my son and daughter-in-law. Beautiful location, stunning view, delightful staff, lovely rooms, very good food and drink and the "funnest" cooking school ever. I regret not getting to the spa but I will the next time.

Minor regret is the family above us sent their darlings down to play on the porch outside our window early Sunday morning so that they could have alone time. For that reason, recommend requesting upstairs room. Recommend that family be more considerate of others :)

Serenity on earth. Cavallo Point Lodge is within view of SF, but is still peaceful and delightful. My husband and I enjoyed an overnight here in conjunction with using our Sausalito seaplane ride gift (which was also spectacular). The renovatd historic rooms are well done, but do have trouble managing temperature. We put the fireplace on, and then couldn't get the room to cool off, in spite of windows (without screens, 2nd floor) wide open, and blinds down. We could see SF from our room. The room has all premium materials. The filtered water pitcher in the fridge is a nice touch. The Peerless Coffee in the room is delicious. We regret our stay was so short. Next time we want to hike.

We splurged for an anniversary weekend getaway at Cavallo Point. The whole experience was just enormously civilized without being stuffy. We enjoyed a leisurely drink and yummy snacks at the bar, a soothing spa experience, and just drank in the views of the City and the Golden Gate Bridge.

We would go back in a heartbeat. Hopefully we would get to stay longer. We were a little bummed to have to leave!

We had a very quiet and relaxing getaway weekend at Cavallo Point. The ever-present view of the Golden Gate is hard to beat.

The rooms were spacious, clean and well thought-out, and they did a nice job of making modern and confortable spaces in older buildings.

Dinner was fantastic, with a creative presentation, and good use of local ingredients. Staff generally knowledgeable and very friendly.

Great hiking right out the door to the Marin headlands.

Cavallo Point is a gorgeous hotel with a first class spa. They offered superb service in a spectacular setting. The ambience, decor, food, and the rooms were all first class. Sitting on the porch of the hotel restaurant watching the sun set with a great glass of wine was so relaxing and you feel miles away from the stresses of the "real" world. I had the best massage I have ever had; something called "The Wave". The Spa was clean, modern, with a genuine zen, with respectful service personnel willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The hiking on the hotel grounds offer spectacular views in every direction. While the setting is very romantic, I travelled with a girlfriend and found it to be the perfect vacation with a lively bar, should you want some night life, or the peace and quiet of the natural environment. In addition, they have a terrific photography collection not only in the gallery but all the rooms which were well appointed and luxurious. Cavallo was of the best resorts I have ever been to.

First and foremost, my room at Cavallo Point had a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge & the San Francisco Bay. On top of that, I thoroughly enjoyed the giant soaking tub and fireplace and appreciated their respect for energy conservation by installing radiant-heated floors. I finished off my stay with a great dinner at Murray Circle...the quail was awesome! At times it seemed that the staff hadn't quite hit their stride, but it is a new hotel and that sort of thing improves with time. Overall, I had a great stay and would definitely recommend Cavallo Point to people who want to have access to all of the amenities of San Francisco in a rustic, upscale setting.

We just spent our second weekend at Cavallo Point, over Mother's Day, and have nothing but rave reviews since our last visit, June 2008. Our first weekend we stayed in the new rooms on top of the hill, with spectacular views of the GG Bridge. We enjoyed the restaurant food, staff and service after a fabulous massage. We found the staff excited about their new resort and very accommodating. We decided to return for Mother's Day weekend with Mom and had family meet us there (they live in the area). This time we stayed in the Officer's Quarters, a 2 bdrm quaintly restored handicapped suite, since Mom is disabled.

I honestly don't think I've seen Mom smile so much. She was treated like a queen by the staff, as we were. Check in was a breeze, and we were even greeted by the concierge, Nancy, who helped us with reservations later in our stay. We called several times for someone to pick us up to take Mom (& us) to the restaurant, bar or gift shop and staff couldn't have been more prompt and gracious. Housekeeping was always around by 11:00 a.m. and our rooms were turned down at night, with fresh towels and accessories. The restaurant food, staff and service was top notch; even room service went beyond our expectations.

We can't say enough about the breathtaking views, walks, drives, vistas and sites of the surrounding area. We especially loved walking around all of the bunkers. If we had to complain about anything, it would be that we didn't want to get out of those unbelievably comfortable beds.
It's the most restful night's sleep anyone could ask for.

We are looking forward to our third visit to Cavallo Point in June, for another family gathering. We've been extremely fortunate to have stayed in all of the Passport Resorts including Post Ranch, Cousteau Fiji, Sea Ranch and Hana, Maui. We've never been let down yet; they just keep getting better and better.
