A Weekend Retreat
Front porch dining outside Farley Bar.
Comfy Queen room in one of the historic buildings,
which used to be officers' residences.
Cozy chair & fireplace.
Dream bathroom. Super spacious with gorgeous fixtures.
Deep soaking tub complete with bubbles & salts,
and a view of downtown SF out the window.
Healthy, delectable & FREE snacks!
Majestic views at the foot of the iconic Golden Gate...
less than a five minute walk from your room.
The Contemporary Lodging...perched up on a hill with amazing views of the bay. In contrast to the historic buildings, these newer rooms were built with eco-friendly green architecture and have radiant heat floors and a more modern style.
The Mercantile sells eco-friendly clothing,
jewelry, books, and treasures from local artisans.
Simple, clean elegance.
The Mission Blue Chapel located right on the property makes Cavallo an ideal wedding spot. They even offer a "perfect proposal" service through the concierge.
A mix of locals & guests at Farley Bar.
The spa lounge is worth sinking into early before an appointment.
So many spots to sit, relax and take in the breathtaking views.
Welcome to Cavallo Point. Part of the National Register of Historic Places and nestled on a breathtaking 10 acre setting, it was originally home to the Army post Fort Baker which, was active through World War II.
Highs + Lows
There's so much to do right on property you can really fix up a nice retreat. Between the spa, cooking classes, nature walks and art talks, the programming is extensive and well-curated.
They set a great example with environmental conservation. Their commitment to sustainability is seen everywhere, from solar panels & organic bedding to raising awareness through numerous programs at the Institute at the Golden Gate.
The option to choose between historic vs. modern lodging means something for every taste.
No screens on the windows in the historic rooms made me weary of opening them up to bring in the cool bay breeze.

Part of Passport Resorts, sister property to Big Sur's Post Ranch Inn.
The Healing Arts Center & Spa is a destination on its own. With services ranging from traditional massage to hypnotherapy, a heated meditation pool, tea bar, daily yoga, and a resident integrative physician.
Casual small-plate dining at Farley Bar...and fine dining at Murray Circle, their acclaimed restaurant which features modern local cuisine.
Amazing seasonal & classic cocktails at Farley Bar. And this is Northern California, so naturally they have a wine cellar with no less than 12,000 bottles. Yes, that's three zeros.
They're allowed (dogs too!)...although this is the perfect place to run away from them for a weekend.
Moderately pricey but well worth the impressive, abundant amenities.
