Cavallo Point—The Lodge at the Golden Gate
Opened on June 23, 2008, with a primo location half a mile north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Cavallo Point—The Lodge at the Golden Gate has 142 rooms and suites both in modern design and in restored turn-of-the-20th-century Colonial Revival cottages that were once officers’ residences at Fort Baker. The lodge has a Healing Arts Center spa, an organic Tea Bar, a culinary arts program (including “Discovering Artisanal Cheese” and “Olive Oil 101”), creativity and animation classes, triathlon training, many yoga classes, and one of the most dramatic views of that world-famous bridge.
Insider Tip: Like the rest of the lodge’s fare, fruits and juices used in cocktails in the Farley Bar—named for the late Phil Frank’s beloved local comic-strip character (a sometime park ranger) who was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle for 32 years—are fresh and organic.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
