It's been 8 months since my husband and I stayed at Cavallo point but I think of it often and plan on returning. We stayed in an "historic room with a view" for a special price. The setting is pure romance with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. It really is a great base for exploring the area. Our first day we hiked in the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods and Muir Beach and took a trip to wine country on another. We had breakfast on the porch and dinner at Murray's Circle as well as room service another evening... food was wonderful every time.
The spa heated pool is set in a beautifully landscaped setting with the Marin headlands rising up behind it....very soothing. They also serve very reasonable and delicious salads and sandwiches at the spa....we ate ours overlooking the pool on our last day.
We woke up before sunrise several mornings to walk down to the waterfront and take pictures of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. There is a nice walk along the water, under the bridge and up a path to a spectacular lookout of the city, the bridge and ocean. I can't say enough about how unique the setting is - it's quiet, laid back, historical and in the midst of a national park with dramatic views of San Francisco.
I would describe service as laid back and casual, not great but not bad. My only complaint here was that the book of services in the room stated a different closing time for the spa than another piece of literature we had been given at check out. As a result we missed going to the spa till the last day.
I'm a pretty tough critic when it comes to lodging and this was the perfect place for us. I could see where it might not appeal to some because of it's secluded location. Sausalito is a short drive down the road and San Francisco is just over the bridge. It is somewhat isolated but that's the beauty of it. To have such spectacular views of the city and be surrounded by trees, San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands is truly unique.
Our only regret is that we wished we had stayed longer.
