Cavallo Point at The Golden Gate Bridge


Daddy G and I headed off to the San Francisco area for a Couple's Getaway. We needed to continue to stretch our Empty Nester Wings so we are ready to fly when both girls are away at college. We chose the beautiful Cavallo Point in what most consider San Francisco. The Resort is actually located at 601 Murray Circle  Fort Baker in Sausalito, California.

 

The Resort offers historic rooms and contemporary rooms. We chose the historic room because I love the restored landmark brick buildings with their beautifully designed retro rooms. Our Historic King Suite featured a king bed, vintage details and exceptional amenities. We used our gas fireplace in the separate living room to take the SF chill out of the air. Our suite enjoyed a panoramic view of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay and the skyline of San Francisco. Outside rocking chairs on our front porch allowed us to relax and soak in the stunning surroundings.

 

One of the many fabulous amenities is the Healing Arts Center and Spa. The refreshing scents of eucalyptus and pine fill the spa and soon you feel a wave of relaxation take over you. We enjoyed a soothing soak in the heated outdoor meditation pool beneath the pines as well as the steam rooms. We left refreshed and hungry.

 

We chose The Farley Bar. The Cavallo Point website described the bar,

 

"Cozy atmosphere, creative cocktails Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar is a Bay Area favorite. Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu, creative cocktails, cozy fireplaces, leather club chairs, and a bar crafted from a fallen tree. Farley Bar's merry mix of lodge guests and locals provides the social heart of Cavallo Point."

 

We had some appetizers and some absolutely amazing Hendricks Gin and Tonics our favorite drink as a couple. 

 

Staying at Cavallo Point is like stepping back in time, but I still had access to my iPhone which is like the best of both worlds.
